Sustainable interiors lead the way
I discovered Sarah Turner at this years Birmingham Interiors Show in The Designers Block and loved her approach to sustainable interior designs. She specialises in eco-friendly art and design and has created a collection of lamps and lights sourced from cast away plastic bottles.
Handmade, the pieces are delicate and beautiful as they hand perfectly from the ceiling. She is expected to exhibit her collection at this years London Fashion Week and the prestigious Ideal Homes Show in March at London’s Earl Court.
