How vegan-friendly is your home?

PETA reveals the VERY quirky winners of its annual homeware awards – including furniture made from salt and soil and cushions created from recycled bottles

  • PETA announced the winners of their second annual homeware awards
  • The animal rights charity hopes to recognise cruelty-free innovation and design
  • Anthropologie were praised for their chic sofa free from sheep’s wool 
  • Zara were also congratulated for their wool free design of weaved blankets 

If you’re embracing a truly vegan lifestyle, the principles stretch from what you eat to how you decorate your home, and now PETA has revealed its annual list of the best cruelty-free designs.

The animal rights charity’s Vegan Homeware Awards recognise products that blend innovation and style, with this year’s list featuring items from high street brands such as Zara, The White Company and Habitat. 

Quirky creations among this year’s winners include pieces by Israeli designer Erez Nevi Pana who received the Innovation Award for his captivating furniture produced from natural minerals including soil and salt.

Popular brand Anthropologie were awarded the Best Vegan Sofa for its turquoise Angelina piece at £1,998 produced 100% from polyester and described as being made from ‘performance wool’.

PETA Director Elisa Allen said she hopes the awards will inspire others to recognise animals as unsuitable for use as homeware, saying that some animals are castrated, branded and skinned – with some even still conscious – in the production of homewares.

She said: ‘Animals are not fabric – and we need to move away from using their skin, fur, wool, and feathers as such. 

‘Animal agriculture not only causes millions of living beings immense suffering but is also wreaking havoc on the environment.
