Buying vintage furniture is super green, but it’s not always easy to find pieces in great shape, especially upholstered items. Lotus Bleu has fixed that problem for us. They offer vintage pieces redone in new, modern fabrics. Lotus Bleu is located in San Fransisco, but if you’re not in the area, you can order right online. Current items for sale are displayed in addition to items that have already been sold, to give you an idea of what might be available at any given time.
Descriptions include pricing, which I might add, is quite reasonable. For example, right now there is a charming vintage mid-century love seat updated in a earth-tone striped fabric with orange piping. It is a beautiful piece and is priced at $2,000. Considering the structure quality of vintage pieces compared to most contemporary furniture, that’s a great deal.
If you take good care of the piece, it could probably be handed down to your children, re-upholstered again, and last for another few generations. Now, that’s living green! Visit Lotus Bleu.
