From Pau, as a sustainable furniture brand, we want to help you, so in this post we tell you which are the ecological and sustainable living room furniture that you can never miss.
Sustainable decoration in your living room
Having a sustainable decor in the living room is possible and brings many advantages to our lifestyle.
Sustainable decoration consists of using objects that follow the principles of social, ecological and economic sustainability. That is to say, objects that have been manufactured following the circular economy model based on the maximum use of resources while trying to reduce the use of raw materials.
Not only furniture can be eco-friendly, but also objects such as curtain fabrics, cushions or carpets, paint or plants can turn your living room into an environmentally friendly space.
For example, in the case of fabrics for curtains, cushions or sofa upholstery, it is best to opt for eco-friendly materials and vegetable fibers such as cotton and linen; or animal fibers such as silk or wool.
If we talk about paint, it is best to use ecological paint of natural, vegetable or mineral origin that comes from renewable or biodegradable sources and is not harmful to the environment.
The best natural decorative elements are plants, which besides giving a sense of tranquility are beneficial to health and allow us to create beautiful decorative compositions.
