I love it when the right people win!

 

I posted not too long ago about new products coming out of West Coast Green.  Since then, I got my library set of samples from O Eco Textiles, and they are gorgeous!  I mean luscious and splendid.  I was a fabric designer in a past life, and love working with fabrics in my new incarnation as an interior designer. I am dying to get a project that I can use them on, I have been walking around my house saying "Maybe I should re-upholster that chair, or that one...."   But no, I will have to wait for the right job to come along.  

But meanwhile, Greenbuild just took place in Boston, and this exciting new textile line was recognized as one of the top 10 green products of 2008 by Environmental Building News and Green Spec. They deserve it for their stringent research and attention to visual quality. More colors please! I cannot get enough of these fabrics.

As an aside, if you are interested in reading the best researched articles about green building, you cannot do better than the Environmental Building News.
