HauteGREEN 2007: Accepting Submissions for the Best in Sustainable Design


HauteGREEN, a design exhibition of the best in sustainable home furnishings, is now accepting applications for the 2007 show. Held during the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) at New York's design week (May 19 -22), HauteGREEN will feature a curated collection (with Graham Hill, on board as one of the curators) from both emerging and established designers, in New York and around the world. Spotlighting design that is beautiful, functional, and sustainable, the event showcases furniture, lighting, and accessories that are both aesthetically pleasing and eco-friendly -- something that TreeHugger keeps an eye peeled for ever day. We got a good look at some of the designs from last year's show in our HauteGREEN sneak peek series, and buddied up with Alex and Sarah from WorldChanging for a three-part HauteGREEN Salon (here's part one, part two & part three) on TreeHugger TV. Last year's show featured some of TreeHugger's favorite sustainable designers, like Q Collection, Rhubarb Decor, MIO Culture and Bambu, and this year's promises to be bigger and better -- we can't wait! The deadline for submissions is next Friday, April 13, and selections for the show will be announced on or before April 23. There is no fee to submit, and guidelines and forms for submission are available from the HauteGREEN website. Good luck to all interested designers; we'll look forward to seeing more of the best in sustainable design at the show. ::HauteGREEN
