Fresh 'green' designs from the October High Point Market

One trend out of Highpoint that is gaining momentum is "green" or "eco-friendly". FURNITURE/Today writes,
A wave of fresh, new eco-friendly “green” furniture – both wood and upholstery -- was introduced at the October High Point Market. The introductions reflected the growing interest in furnishings made of sustainably harvested woods, organic cottons and other natural or recycled materials.
Here are three highlights from Furniture/Today’s showroom visits during market that are vendors to Landfair Furniture + Design Gallery.

An organic hopsack of bamboo, linen, cotton and hemp from Molteni and 100% hemp fabrics from Enviro Textiles, respectively, are showcased on a new slipper sectional and mid-century lounge chair from Palecek Furniture.

The Phillips Collection’s Vine console is crafted from twisting and turning natural vines, carefully assembled to create an ecologically friendly design. Finished with a glass top, each piece is unique.

Rowe launched its Eco-Rowe collection at the fall market, including the Paige sofa in a cover of 100% hemp with a sustainable wood frame and eco-down cushion
