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.

Those of you that have been reading orGLAMic for a while know that I am nuts about Design Within Reach.  Now I present you with just one more reason I think this design retailer is the tops: the Emeco Kong chair designed by Philippe Starck.  This armchair (also available as a bar stool with or without arm rests) is made from 80% recycled aluminum and has a sleek orGLAMic look that I love.  We all know that recycling is important, but did you realize that making new aluminum takes 20 times more energy than recycling it does?

One of my favorite design stores offers several eco-friendly products that I love. One of these are the set of three rubber tubs.

These are orGLAMic in their sleek design and their durability guarantees that you will have these around for years and years to come. Click here to buy these recycled tubs.
