Gifts for the home

Plump pillows

Make a statement that also adds comfort to your home decor. The Manor12 Floor Cushion is oversized and eco-friendly, hand-printed on heavyweight organic cotton with a worn-in feel and wool backing. The retro prints come in two colour schemes: chocolate brown/ lemon and cherry red/tangerine. (Modern Karibou, $150)

Reflect on this

This one-of-a-kind reclaimed wood mirror doubles as a work of art, constructed from varying types of 80-year-old barn wood. All colours are original and naturally aged. Created in Windsor, Ontario, each mirror comes with a mounting kit, and custom sizes are available. (Craig’s Reclaimed Woodwork, $110)

Birch for back comfort

Even the sleekest furniture pieces can be environmentally friendly. This black lacquered rib chair is constructed from recycled birch wood and features unfixed wooden ribs that can be repositioned for maximum convenience. Talk about a perfect combination of comfort and style! (Inmod, $950)

Eco meets mod

If bold, contemporary furniture has a spot in your living room, you’ll love the sleek, edgy look of the Yamaska Collection Armchair by Atelier HOCH. Inspired by Quebec’s cultural heritage, this chair features salvaged hardwood and cushions plumped with plant-based foam. (Galerie CO, $1,660)
