GREEN WITH ENVY

The Airlie Pendant by Currey & Co. exudes green in its reclaimed materials and color. Carefully arranged disks made of recycled glass form a canopy over a wrought-iron frame to create a fixture that casts a filtered emerald glow.

The home furnishings firm has incorporated natural objects into its designs in the past, and has recently expanded to integrate recycled and reclaimed materials as well. The company also has joined the Sustainable Furniture Council—an organization designed to assist manufacturers and artisans in becoming 100-percent sustainable.

Light As Air
Less weight equals more design opportunities when it comes to the new, patent-pending AirStone. Available at most Lowe’s stores, AirStone veneers are comprised of 80-percent recycled materials.

The “stones” are 75 percent lighter than real stones and 50 percent lighter than manufactured concrete. The product’s reduced weight also contributes to less energy consumption, both in shipping and packaging materials.

AirStone can be used on a variety of surfaces, including interior drywall, concrete (shown here) or brick, and can be applied using a special adhesive and putty knife.
