We’re on a mission to inspire intentional living that encourages connection to the natural world.
After joining an upholstery class as headspace from the stress and inflexibility of corporate management, Old Green founder Tori couldn’t ignore the joy of switching off her mind and creating something with her own two hands. This provided a longed-for sense of purpose, and a love affair with crafting personal, meaningful interiors was ignited.
Sourcing the next chair to work on was all too easy, as it quickly became apparent how often well-made furniture was completely undervalued and tossed to one side in favour of cheaply made soulless equivalents. This out with the old in with the new mentality and wasteful impact just didn’t sit right.
Gaining a deeper understanding of the damage caused by this short-term cycle on both us and our planet fueled a desire to inspire homes that exist in harmony with nature – with products that evoke a connection to the seasons, and functionality that ensures they’re desired in the long term; using materials that reduce rather than add to our footprint on the world.
The circle was complete when we opened our own doors to share our knowledge; providing the opportunity for others to switch off and recentre, connect with others and the beauty of nature, and use their hands to create something meaningful.
