Luxury Goods For The Home YOU Can Feel Good About

It’s nice to mix up the decor in your house once in a while and it doesn’t need to be an expensive task something simple will suffice and can help brighten up or breathe a little life into a room.  Every so often I will browse the internet  and see what I can find to mix things up a bit at home.  Whilst I was doing one of my searches I came across a company called Banbayu who have products that are that bit different even somewhat unusual and absolutely perfect for what I was looking for.

Now of course whilst on the site I was curious to read a little of the companies background.  This company provides “luxury goods you can feel good about.”  Their aim is to bring a touch of ethically sourced luxury to all from the world’s most diverse and remote cultures.  All their products are handmade and the material used are verified for cultural and ecological sustainability.  Through charitable donations and ethical sourcing, Banbayu support the cultures and environments that help them share such gorgeous pieces.  You can read all about the school they support in Bali on their website.

The mix of items I discovered on the site were extremely varied and unique. For example these vases which would make a wonderful centre piece for a table or a focal point on a fireplace mantel due to their fantastic designs and the beautiful use of colour.

This stunning vase would go beautifully in my living room due to the chocolate brown colour of my sofas and would provide a wonderful contrast whilst at the same time bring to the room a touch of the super trendy and sophisticated copper / rose gold colour that is so stylish at the moment.

(Coppi Leaf Vase)

But then I found this plate.  It not only caught my eye but also got my creative juices flowing and got me rather excited.  The Coppi Plate is handmade from copper giving the perfect addition of colour to work with today’s trends and was available in three sizes.  This can be used to serve food although if you are serving hot food care is required as it conducts heat (gets hot).  I had other things on mind other than serving food.  The plate looks so pretty that rather than covering it up I wanted to display it and show everyone so what better place to display it than on my fireplace mantel where it would make a fabulous focal point and conversation piece.  Of course I ordered the plate straight away and it came faster than expected and was extremely well packaged to ensure it would survive the post – we all have heard plenty of horror stories right!

By coincidence I had been sent a reed diffuser to review which arrived at the same time which was perfect.  Off out I went to find the perfect props to create my stunning master piece.

Of course plants don’t last indefinitely so not long after my first creation I was at it again.  How sunning is that?  I am experimenting with various floral designs but at some stage hope to find some beautiful realistic looking flowers to create a more permanent display that will last about a month before I’m at it again changing this around.

Also available on the site was a range of cushions, bowls, ornaments, lights and jewellery.  I was really pleased with this plate it looks great and really does attract attention which is exactly what I was aiming for.

I am thinking of possibly getting one of the vases at a later date.

Do you try and find companies that source their products ethically and help the communities these products originate from?
