The growing importance of sustainability in interior design

Designing a more sustainable yet still stylish future. 

In recent years, there has been a growing movement towards sustainability in various industries. Interior design is no exception. With people becoming more aware of the impact of their lifestyle choices on the environment, it is no surprise that interior design is becoming more conscious of its environmental impact. 3D fabric textures are playing a key role in this movement towards sustainability, and here we explore why.


Why interior design is becoming more conscious of its environmental impact

Interior sustainability is about the choices we make when designing and decorating spaces. It is about creating interior and even exterior environments that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also eco-friendly. This means an emphasis on recycled materials, reducing energy consumption, and creating a space that is healthy for the occupants.

The textile industry is a significant contributor to environmental pollution. From the production process to the disposal of textiles, the industry has a significant impact on the environment. This is why it is essential to create eco-friendly solutions for home decor, and this is where 3D fabric textures come into play.reveal

How 3D fabric textures are paving the way for eco-friendly decor

3D fabric textures are an innovative solution for sustainable interior design. They are virtual representations of physical fabrics that designers can use in their designs, and Twinbru is helping to pave the way for sustainable decor solutions.

One of the key benefits of 3D fabric textures is that they reduce the need for physical fabric samples. This means that designers can create realistic and sustainable interiors without sample books or cuttings, which reduces waste and environmental pollution. 3D fabric textures also allow designers to experiment with different fabrics and designs, making it easier to create sustainable interiors.

As Bru Textiles continues to expand its range of products that are manufactured in a more sustainable manner with more eco-conscious sources of fibre, Twinbru will continue to present these products to the world. As 3D fabric textures are available on design and visualisation platforms and digital asset libraries, more designers see the eco-friendly fabrics that are available. This leads to a much easier decision-making process. Because the full product detail is available in the digital fabric texture file, it’s easier to select a fabric that is in line with sustainable interiors. 

Additionally, one digital fabric sample can do much more and go much further than a physical sample. Furniture designers, interior designers, retailers and even consumers can now have easier access to information regarding sustainable fabrics and make better choices. 

The long-term effect of making more eco-friendly choices in interior design

Making more eco-friendly choices in interior design has a long-term effect on the environment. By using sustainable materials and designs, we reduce the environmental impact of our living spaces. For example, using 3D fabric textures allows designers to create realistic and sustainable interiors without the need for physical samples. This reduces waste, energy consumption, and environmental pollution.

The principles of sustainable interior design are: 

  • Design for energy efficiency 
  • Design for low environmental impact 
  • Design for waste reduction 

If all products are designed that way, naturally we will all have a lower carbon footprint at least in our purchasing choices and interior design. In a way, Twinbru’s 3D fabric textures were already designed to achieve all three. Because it’s digital, there is a far lower environmental impact, there is no waste because the fabrics exist as digital files and, without the need to transport sample books or create prototypes, it is a low-energy alternative to the traditional methods of the textile industry. 


An honest commitment 

Designing interiors sustainably demonstrates sincere dedication to safeguarding the environment. It also shows that we are aware of the effects of our actions on the environment and generations of the future. While interior design does focus on the aesthetic quality of design, it is balanced with a focus on function and intention. If it is our goal to redefine our spaces into environments that nurture and inspire generations, then we must think carefully about what we put in and how we design. Digital solutions make this process much easier and keep us aligned with our intention to do more to protect our planet and the spaces we love.
