Mod Green Pod at Dwell on Design Reclaimed Space house

While we're sad we're missing the Dwell on Design conference going on in LA this weekend, we're excited that our Bloom organic cotton fabric has found a beautiful spot in the Reclaimed Space house.

Eco style maven, Zem Joaquin, whose blog, Ecofabulous, is a Mod Green Pod fave, teamed up with an Austin company, Reclaimed Space, to bring one of the company's beautiful prefab homes to the show. Sustainably built from primarily reclaimed materials, the 400 square foot home is up for auction on ebay and 100% of the sale proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity Los Angeles. Zem and company were assigned the interior's design, and to mirror the construction style they chose mostly re-used, vintage pieces, some of which were given makeovers using sustainable materials. Mod Green Pod's Bloom fabric was chosen not only because it's organic cotton and free of nasty chemicals, but because it gave the small space a happy, colorful pop. More photos coming soon, and if you are interested in knowing more about the house, enjoy this video.

***edited to add that EKLA HOME reupholstered the chair for the show.
