The interior design industry has not been an early adopter of sustainability methodologies. However, we have been able to make some progress toward sustainable goals.
drop shipping suppliers that use sustainable materials such as wool or sea grass for rugs. (Lower priced rugs are synthetic. Not all suppliers conform to best practices.) Our merchandise is high quality for long lasting use. We avoid disposable or short term products because of their high impact on the environment.
Espy Exclusive Collections, Natalya and Ira Designs, and Vintage Now items are fabricated under our direct supervision.
We implement the following methods toward sustainability goals:
95% of all information is shared electronically (without the use of paper)
All paper products are recycled.
We avoid materials that blend organic and chemical elements making them impossible to recycle.
Most shipping containers are reused.
We use no petroleum based chemicals or paints.
All latex paint and pigment leftovers are disposed of with office waste not in the water system.
Less than 5% of material scrap is disposed.
Fabric remnants are made into pillows, wall decor, and given to charitable groups. (Quilts made of our high end woven goods were used as hammocks in Haiti. Other remnants became book bags for children of Europe) Diversity
The supply side of the design industry has been highly diverse for over a decade. But, many interior design firms operate in exclusive cultural niches. Our design mission encompasses a much wider view. We enjoy and encourage business with a wide range of people, because it enriches our lives and offers unique design opportunities. Design Nashville has few employees, but our international suppliers and customers are highly diverse in terms of national origin, race, age, sexual orientation, language, and culture. We provide metric conversions, language translations, and complimentary, extended customer service for blind, deaf, or handicapped individuals.
