Over the last few years, sustainable luxury decor has drastically risen in popularity with interior design enthusiasts. Why? Simply because a ‘luxury’ makeover doesn’t have to mean contributing towards the damage to our planet.
As awareness grows regarding the environmental impact of human activities, there’s now an urgent call to adopt more sustainable practices in all aspects of our lives; including the way we decorate and furnish our homes.
Introducing the sustainable luxury home decor trend.
Understanding Sustainable Luxury
So, what does sustainable luxury mean, exactly?
In a nutshell, it all revolves around conscious manufacturing processes of luxury furniture and home decor accessories, with the intention of limiting harm to the environment. This may include the use of natural, raw materials, as well as implementing eco-friendly practices during production. So, by choosing to go down the path of sustainable luxury, you’ll not only have the peace of mind that you’re reducing your carbon footprint, but purchasing furniture that’s sure to stand the test of time.
Many sustainable luxury designers are dedicated to fostering ethical labour practices and the fair treatment of employees to contribute to positive social aspects, as well as environmental practices.

When it comes to keeping warm outdoors or even adding an extra cosy element to your living area, why not invest in a bioethanol fire? Unlike traditional fireplaces fuelled by gas, oil, or wood, this option uses the environmentally friendly fuel source of bioethanol (derived from potatoes, peat, and vegetables), making it a much cleaner burning alternative. While burning, it releases very minimal carbon dioxide and harmful fumes into the atmosphere.
When it comes to choosing accessories, we offer a variety of sustainable options that will give your home a sleek, modern look, while minimising your environmental impact.
Add a cosy lighting source to your living space with the Iguazu Jute Table Lamp. It’s handcrafted in eco-friendly jute by artisans in small Vietnamese communities using traditional techniques. Plus, every time a lamp is purchased, a new tree is planted to reduce further emissions!
Add a splash of colour to any room with the Chartreuse Romy Kite Rug. It comes in three sizes to fit any space; plus, it’s made from fully recycled materials, which would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.
Looking to upgrade your work-from-home office? The Scandinavian Style Writing Desk is a stylish option if you’re one for minimalist, retro styling. It’s handmade from solid mango wood, under a certified commercial plantation programme. And, the secret to keeping it looking as good as new for the years ahead? Regularly polish with beeswax to achieve an incredible sheen.
In need of extra storage options? Why not go for the Upholstered Shoe Storage Bench designed for your hallway; built in a similar deluxe mango wood. Or, keep your everyday essentials in close reach with the Arena 4 Tray Caddy, made from natural bamboo.
Craftsmanship and Sustainable Practices
While exploring Lime Lace’s collection, you’ll come across an array of range of designers with a drive for creating luxury pieces with a focus on environmental responsibility.
Take Dutch designer, Piet Hein Eek for example. Back in 1990, he took the world by storm by creating a cupboard from scrap wood. After proving to the world that luxury furniture can be built through sustainable practices, hundreds of other designers have followed in his footsteps. Today, minimal designs and eco-friendly materials can be seen throughout his collection, which you can discover here.
