The Sustainable Furnishings Council and the Interior Design Society named She ree Vincent from Fusion Designed as the winner of this year’s #Get Your Green On award. The SFC/IDS collaboration for this award began in 2018, and the competition received more entries this year than ever before. The #GetYourGreenOn sustainable design competition requirements included using products from SFC member companies, asking suppliers what the products are made of and disclosing a wood sourcing policy. With these requirements, competing designers took into consideration the principles of social, economic and ecological sustainability.
“Educating on the benefits of sustainable design decisions is a passion and I’m grateful that I am part of the movement,” said Vincent, Principal at Fusion Designed, near Minneapolis. “Just a few short years ago, it was rare for a client to bring up green or eco-friendly design options. Now, it’s becoming a standard in the marketplace, and clients have an eagerness to seek out designers who specialize in sustainable design.” Winning designs do the most to ensure that the project does not leave a negative impact on our environment. “We believe that by joining forces we have a greater impact, and so we are delighted to be working with IDS on a competition that highlights best practices for sustainability as well as function and beauty,” said Susan Inglis, SFC Executive Director. “Vincent created a warm, inviting space that met the requirements beautifully”
