sustainable roundups: 10 dining chairs for people and the planet

in sustainable roundups

What makes a chair sustainable? As always, the word sustainability embeds multiple meanings that range from a mindful use of natural resources to social & ethical considerations.

In this episode of Sustainable Roundups, we’ll discover 10 dining chairs made with natural materials, waste, innovative materials, and more…

All pieces are sourced from riivin, the fully independent sustainable interior design platform I curate. You’ll find more by browsing through the platform, and you can unlock the entire product selection by joining riivin+.

Note: this selection is completely unsponsored and so is all the content you’ll find on riivin. The platform is proudly independent and lives thanks to the members’ area riivin+, which provides additional and exclusive resources to design more sustainable spaces.
