Cool Eclectic Ideas for Buying Lamps Made From Recycled Materials As Great Home Accent Pieces

By Reclaimed LIGHTING.

I love accent pieces. They give a room that extra bit of unique style that really catches your eye. I’m focusing on lamps made from recycled materials because they’re really cool to look at and have a functional purpose.

A great thing about modern lamps made from recycled materials is their variety of styles, and use materials including metals, wood, glass, and even coconuts to make some really whimsical pieces.

But if you’re not the whimsical type, there are lots of other styles that are perfect for tastes ranging from modern elegant to country casual to beach style.

In my search for really eclectic lamps made from recycled materials, I came across an equally eclectic array of outlets from designers with their own online boutiques to the mega lighting stores. The four outlets that I liked best are: Reclaimed LIGHTING, GIN ART & Design, Houzz, and Lamps Plus.

Reclaimed LIGHTING

By Reclaimed LIGHTING.

Reclaimed LIGHTING is a great little boutique whose owners craft all of their unique creations. Their lighting includes unique chandeliers, hanging lighting fixtures, as well as table and floor lamps.

Focusing on their lamps, I love their antique cooper heater desk lamp, which is designed to look like a fan.

I think it’s a great piece for an old fashioned study that incorporates a lot of wood and metal decor, and leather furnishings. But from the picture, you can tell that it can be incorporated into any style.

I also love their reclaimed antique gumball lamps. They come in a desk lamp and standing floor lamp style.

Great Looking Eco-Friendly Furnishing Ideas For Dorm and Small Apartment Living On A Budget

Triple Storage Cubes Plus bookcase.

Most people have the same basic goals when planning a living space – they want it to look good, be functional, and be economic, but if you have an eco-penchant too, you want to make sure your choices help sustain the environment and protect you from harmful chemicals found in many conventionally-made furnishings.

Right now, as usual, there aren’t that many department stores or even specialty stores near most of us, so our best options are still going shopping online. And, the great news is that there are lots of great eco-stores on the net that won’t break the bank.

Three great eco-outlets on the net that are more like malls are: The Ultimate Green Store, Pristine Planet, and Shades of Light.

The Ultimate Green Store

The Ultimate Green Store feels just like its name implies, has just about everything green that you can think of for your home, office, and life, including wide arrays of home and office furniture, office supplies, electronics, organic mattresses, bedding, linens, apparel accessories, and skin and bath products. And, these are just some of what they have, with most of their things well under $100.

But getting back to furniture, there are several pieces that I especially like – they are: the Triple Storage Cubes Plus bookcase, the Quad Cubby Organizer, and the Storage Cubes.

Looking at the Triple Storage Plus bookcase, one of the great things about it is that it’s tall and slender so it can fit into narrower spaces and if you have more space, you can buy two and put them side-by-side.

The Triple Storage Plus bookcase is great for tall books and can be used as a storage center for other stuff. It also has a closed white back too, but the frame comes in four colors: natural, espresso, black, and white.

All of the Triple Storage Plus units are also water resistant and “sustainably made from zBoard recycled paper,” which is durable, non-toxic, and more lightweight than particle board, according to its maker Way Basics. The company also says all of its products are formaldehyde-free and volatile organic compound (VOC)-free.
