Sustainable Vintage Bedroom Furniture over Fast Furniture
The ultimate in recycling and the perfect way to achieve a sustainable home, antiques and vintage furniture is an eco conscious choice that is often overlooked.
When you choose a vintage bed you help to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, protect precious resources and that is before you consider the energy saving from producing new items. Carbon-copy.com did a study commissioned by antiquesaregreen.org and estimated that a new piece of furniture will last 15 years, whereas an antique or vintage piece is passed from owner to owner every 30 or so years. This means that the environmental impact of antique furniture is nearly six times less than that of new furniture.
Many people assume that antique beds are not a practical choice for modern living, are stuffy never to be touched items and not as good as something purchased from new. We know that is definitely not the case! All of our antique beds are sold fully restored by our team of experts, built to last and the quality is much much better than anything that has been mass produced in China. Vintage and antique beds have been handcrafted by master craftsman, the quality of the materials used and the craftsmanship is second to none - honestly you could not buy better.
