Viesso Furniture: Custom Green Furniture & Interiors

The furniture and interiors TreeHugger often encounters that offer sleek, modern designs combined with green materials also often comes with a big price tag. This can be discouraging for those of us who want to live green and look good, too; for some, it also perpetuates the stereotype that green stuff is astronomically expensive, which is not always the case. In any event, custom furniture company Viesso seems to have found a good balance: all of their products, including chairs, sofas, tables, beds, benches, accessories and more, are customizable, and each different option (upholstery, cushions, frame, etc.) has several green choices, allowing customers to be as green as they want to. They use fabric and textiles from Maharam and Knoll, natural latex or feather/down filling instead of polyurethane for cushions and wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). While it's true that these green options do come at a bit of a premium, this TreeHugger was able to put together a pretty bad-ass looking 96" sofa for about $2300, which is a reasonable deal for a big piece of custom furniture, green or otherwise. Viesso is thinking about going 100% green, but, in the meantime, we're glad to see that they offer the option for those of us who care. Each piece, customizable right on their website, usually takes about three weeks to ship after your custom design is submitted; those in need of instant gratification can cruise their selection of floor models. ::Viesso via ::Design Milk
