Towson, MD, United States, 2012/12/05 - Earth-best retailer WorkingWonders announces a partnership with the Sustainable Furnishings Council to create the region's premier showcase of modern, sustainable living at Silo Point in Baltimore - WorkingWondersUS.com.
Earth-best home retailer WorkingWonders joins the Sustainable Furnishings Council, a non-profit coalition dedicated to better furniture industry practices. Through this partnership, WorkingWonders will reach the nation's leading green furniture makers and bring them together in a new showcase model set to open in 2013 in Baltimore's notable adaptive reuse waterfront community, Silo Point.
"It's about eliminating toxic chemicals in our homes, offering better products that are good us, and the environment," says BethAnn Lederer, WorkingWonders CEO.
The new Silo Point model will display stylish furniture and accessories with a focus on clean, toxin-free materials and made in U.S.A. quality. "There's a lot of ingenuity in America," Lederer says,"people making our things in better ways. This is not apparent when you look at big brand retailers' shelves."
WorkingWonders is changing the world of home retail. Today's sustainable manufacturers need a platform for visibility, a place where consumers can finally experience the products promised them by the oft talked about Green Economy. The WorkingWonders Silo Point model is the first answer to the question of how consumers can access these products - how they can see, touch, and feel the things that make up better homes and lifestyles.
"We're online right now," comments Lederer,"but building out a destination within the Washington D.C. region is vitally important. This is the first step. Consumers have a pent-up demand for high quality furnishings and accessories made from clean, environmentally friendly materials finished to exacting standards with a true sense of artistry and inspiration."
WorkingWonders started bringing this world to life with a Silo Point kick-off event in November featuring natural heirloom quality rugs from New York's Classic Rug Collection, along with clean bioethanol fireplaces from Buschbeck of Germany. Additional partners included contemporary recycled glass from Riverside Design, fair-trade organic textiles from glo (Green Living Organics), innovative RabbitAir MinusA2 HEPA Air Purifiers, and elegant biodegradable umbrellas from BRELLI.
"Working with the Silo Point team has been great," Lederer says. "Paul Sudano and Holly Winfield helped put our concept of a green department store in front of people, and the response has been tremendous. I'm excited to think of what we can achieve by presenting the full picture of a sleek and beautiful sustainable home."
