How to sustainably furnish your home in the Hudson Valley

This fall, after a year as a digital nomad, I signed a lease in High Falls and within hours moved into my new home – which at the time meant unloading my car and inflating my airbed. Going through my empty rooms, I faced the undeniable truth: I needed real furniture if I wanted to make a home for myself.

The old adage says we can do things fast, cheap or good. Sometimes we can get two, but it’s almost impossible to get all three. This wisdom certainly applies to furnishing a home, and it absolutely applies to the sustainable development of a house.

There are a few key factors to consider when making your home sustainable: what is the carbon footprint of moving this thing and what was the environmental impact of creating it? Buying used is the best way to reduce the impact on the planet. The Hudson Valley is full of vintage and antique shops, making it fun and easy to create beautiful spaces with minimal impact on the environment.
