If your looking for fun, sustainable products, make sure to check out Re:modern, a great online source that strives to "bring good design to the masses." Re:modern is not only a great resource because they are focused on offering innovative, well designed items at reasonable prices, but they also work to maintain and establish partnerships with emerging designers, so they have products that you won't necessarily find through other retailers.  Check out the cool wool trivets above, right here

Some of my favorite pieces available at Re:modern are:

The PJ Storage Pillow by Modern Twist. How innovative? Check out this great item, inspired by Japanese anemone boxes (which were used once upon a time to hold family heirlooms). These storage pillows are hand made and meant to look like a beautiful pillow, but with a twist of the lid, it opens to reveal a secret hiding place for everything from blankets to toys. 

The beautiful and simple, Embroidered Branch Purse. I love the simplicity and the quiet of this hand embroidered purse. Made of raffia and cotton, this bag has handles made of  carved and polished wood and is fair trade and sweatshop free. Check out both the serene blue and green colors available. 
Deep Pile Bamboo Shag Rug. I am a huge rug fan, there is nothing like curling up on a soft plushy rug with a blanket in front of a fire and when I saw this rug I was instantly imagining how soft it must feel! This rug looks amazing and the bamboo fibers apparently have a sheen like chenille when they are rolled to create a shag. I have to admit I was not aware of the bamboo shag rug, but on my next flooring purchase, this will be high on the list of possibilities!
