CEO and head interior designer of House of Funk, which is a renowned interior design firm headquartered in New York City, Sandra Funk is an Accredited Professional for the Sustainable Furnishings Council. The interior design world is changing towards new sustainable solutions that are functional, beautiful and timeless. This incredible concept was the base of one of Sandra’s most famous design projects.
This 1780s Farmhouse design project was completely renovated with sustainable furniture solutions and eco-friendly design ideas by Sandra Funk. “Being asked to gut-renovate a 1700s’ farmhouse to create a kitchen, eat-in kitchen, powder room, laundry room, sunroom, and renovate two small rooms into one cohesive family room in an eco-friendly way is no small task”, said the renowned interior designer.
Sandra had the mission to be as eco-conscious as possible when designing this incredible farmhouse design project, so she has the need to think about the impact that our design choices have on the environment. All of the floors of the 250-year-old house are made of reclaimed wood and the interior design was composed with unique vintage pieces like the washstand in the powder room and a set of cubbies for the mudroom.
This design project features all vintage furniture, eco-friendly Viking appliances, natural and unprocessed fabrics, wallpapers and materials used throughout, LED or vintage lights, consistent heat, eco-sustainable plumbing throughout, windows of the highest eco rating available, solar roller shades in the sunroom to contain or reduce heat in the room, and low-VOC paint used throughout. The mission was to ensure a beautiful project and a small carbon footprint, and for that, we can say: “Mission accomplished!”
