In honor of our fantastic outdoor weekend, here is a bright, beautiful, orGLAMic chair that encompasses summertime fun in a chic and modern way.  Made for both indoor and outdoor use, the Mi Casa chair (which was designed in 2008 by Giovanni Pagnotta) is fabricated using a 100% recyclable thermoplastic polymer that is derived as a byproduct of natural gas processing.  Made in the USA, the chair is available in ultra white, dark graphite, hyper green and orange glo, and would be the perfect addition to any modern home, outdoor patio or even my fantasy indoor/outdoor dining room.  Click here to purchase this iconic piece through Hive Modern.

Amenity Home

Picture 2Amenity Home is known as one of the most orGLAMic destinations for all green home decor.  Offering everything from delicious duvets to precious place mats, Amenity perfectly combines form and function with an eco-twist.  I personally love the orGLAMic, modern look of the “Trail” and “Birdseye” table runners pictures above (click here to purchase.)  And if you are lucky enough to live in the Los Angeles area, this weekend they are having a sample sale downtown!  Rumor has it that sample organic duvets will be as inexpensive as $50 and Belgian linen pillows will be up to 75% off.  Going on all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday, details are available by clicking here.

Picture 1The offshoot of one of my favorite interior design companies, WeeGoBaby, keeps unveiling more and more orGLAMic items that are the same great design that I have come to expect from WeeGo.  I love the look of these Glass Bottles available at babyearth.com.  WeeGo has taken eco- and health-conscious glass bottles (bisphenol A, phthalate, PVC and polycarbonate-free!) and added a protective sleeve for safety purposes that ups the design factor as well!  Free of plastics and latex respectively, the sleeve and nipples are both non-toxic as well.  The plastic ring, plug and cap contain no polycarbonates, are FDA-approved and recyclable.  Click here to purchase this orGLAMic baby bottle.

Editor’s note: These bottles are made by Life Factory, whose website is available here.

nineIn celebration of Malia and Sasha becoming first daughters, let’s take a look at a chair that is orGLAMic and perfectly suited for the sisters to do their homework in.  Yes, I am feigning maturity and putting aside my disappointment that they chose attending Sidwell Friends over my alma mater Georgetown Day School.  The Nine-O Swivel Chair is available at Design Within Reach, and like all Emeco seating, it is crafted of 80% recycled aluminum.  Also, with an estimated lifespan of 150 years, this means less waste for our landfills – although most of the chair is recyclable as well.  The swivel chair is available in red, blue, green, grey and orange.  Click here to purchase one for yourself.
