The father-daughter design team that makes up Workroom has a studio that focuses on sustainability and ecological practices.

Based out of New Zealand, all of Workroom's home accessories and furniture are made from recycled New Zealand wood.

Workroom's specialty is using contrasting materials in their work such as plywood, Matai, Tawa, Kauri,
Rimu, and lacquered surfaces.

Implications - There is more to great furniture than how it looks, and the best part of these sustainable pieces of interior decor is that they represent a shift towards eco-friendly manufacturing awareness. As climate change becomes a more and more pressing issue, more and more customers will begin to place a greater priority on how their products are made. Even the largest furniture companies in the world would be wise to learn from Workroom's business model in this respect.
