As much as I can, I make sure any addition to my home is mindful of the space I have, and was responsibly produced. This is not that easy as many furniture shops lack transparency regarding the origins of the materials used and if they were responsibly sourced or ethically produced.

“Ethically produced” can encompass a few things for me. First that materials were responsibly sourced either from a renewable source or if they are from the animal origin that laws around welfare are complied to. Secondly, the local workers are paid a fair wage regardless of where it is produced. OK I know that is very difficult to get information as manufacturers still today don’t really put this forward and quality labels remain vague or non-existent.
So when a brand do make the effort to be more transparent and put this information forward. I LIKE.
I was very pleased that Venoor contacted me to review a few products and spread the word about their brand.
Vênoor – Ethically made furniture
- Ethically made
The owners at Vênoor make sure to carefully select workshops to produce their design and ensure that all employees are cared for. Read more about Venoor ethical approach here: sustainability at Venoor.
- Sourcing sustainable timber
Moreover, the timber used in their furniture is sustainable timber. By sustainable sources, it means the timber complies to FSC, or RIKSH standards.
HIVE SIDE TABLE
Made of a green marble top from Rajasthan marble and with a powder-coated iron base here in bronze. It is a beautiful little side table that will find its place by an armchair like here below, as sofa ends or on its own. This table is available with a green, white or black marble top. The base is in black, bronze or antique brass.
The Hive table also looks good on its own or at the sofa ends
This little table is simply stunning. The marble natural stone is heavy and shiny; the base is strong. The whole product perspire of material quality and great craftsmanship.
These bowls are versatile as they can be used on their own, as tea candle holder or as plant holder. I placed a 13cm plant pot in the larger bowl to style it.
Hope you find some inspiration for ethically made furniture!
