Cabbage curtains and baloney balustrades buoy conservation efforts, but their drab color scheme won’t end up on the cover of Solarium Quarterly any quarter soon. Invest in a nonedible eco-friendly living option with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $150 worth of eco-friendly interior-design products at Green Home Chicago on North Morgan Street in Fulton Market.
Green Home Chicago adorns living spaces with a wide variety of aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly interior accoutrements. Vetted by a 10-point “green” classification system, every Earth-coddling product benefits sustainability efforts through locally sourced materials, green manufacturing processes, or recycled content. Uninspired wall space can be enriched with nontoxic paint, recycled wallpaper, or an eye-catching object from a local artist. A plethora of stylish, American-made furnishings add tasteful accents to dining rooms and underground lairs, and bio fuel fireplaces alight drafty billiard rooms with denatured ethanol-fed flames (a fireplace unit purchase will come with an extra 15% discount). One of Green Home’s LEED accredited designers can provide expert advice as to the ideal placement of a natural-fibered throw rug or one can simply be propped up on stakes and used as a makeshift living space. Green Home Chicago also offers eco-friendly cabinetry and full-service kitchen design and remodeling.
