1. You know what you’re getting – The beauty of any product labelled ‘organic’ is that is does precisely what it says on the ‘tin’. There can be so much smoke and mirrors, especially in the food industry. An organic certification provides clarity peace of mind. 2. Sustainability – Organic food is changing the way people look at farming. More and more organic groceries are being sourced locally, from farmers who care about the long term sustainability of their industry, as well as their land. 3.

I think it’s quite hard to go by a ‘trend’ in furniture. For me, furniture should last, be functional and be designed with perfection and quality. It’s both modern – and timeless !
