Preservation ORDERS

Renew your sustainable shopping vows, says Marianne Cotterill

Sustainable interiors choices take many forms, from recycling and repurposing to being mindful of where your purchases are coming from. Pretty Pegs is a company trying to inspire as many people as possible to personalise their home and extend the lifetime of Ikea furniture by offering accessories such as table legs, knobs and fronts that add personality to the furniture and encourage you to keep and not throw away.

Many ethically produced items are creative and imaginative, from Kaffeeform’s cup and saucer made from coffee grounds to the exquisite Barisieur coffee alarm clock designed to last by Joy Resolve. And for lovers of vintage, RE Found Objects is a company selling colourful, recycled and pre-loved products that are keenly priced — a great place to look for presents at this time of year.
