One of the cliches of sustainability is reuse, reduce, recycle. But honestly, practically every aspect of reducing your carbon footprint includes at least one of these aspects.
From a sustainability perspective, when decorating your personal space, whenever you can reuse or recycle an inherited antique or that recent treasure found at a thrift shop, its a sure way to limit a naturally expanding carbon footprint. Reusing vintage pieces avoids the manufacturing of a new product and all the embodied energy directly related to its production and distribution. Finding vintage furniture across all types of curiosity shops can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Tastefully blending vintage, weather its freshly manufactured or simply dusted off from some forgotten corner can be time-consuming. The Farthing offers a collection of classic vintage to save you a lot of time and miles on your vehicle and that unwanted expansion of your carbon footprint. Their insights and products will bring a unique personality to any decorating project.
