Good news for those who are drawn to the eco-friendly appeal of the green movement, but not quite ready to trade in chic for compostable. Jetset Extra’s Celebrity Interior Designer and Green Living authority, Sophie Azouaou, had those consumers in mind when she unveiled the 2012 Green Design Trends at the prestigious Las Vegas World Summer Market Center, July 30 to August 3.
The convention drew over 38,000 attendees, with Former President Bill Clinton as the key-note speaker. Clinton shared his perspective on globalization and the growing interdependence of the world’s people, emphasizing the need to save energy, water and all our natural resources.
The convention’s theme was the Green economy.
“The goal is to be trendy, respect Mother Nature and save the planet at the same time,” Azouaou explained. “We have come a long way and don’t have to sacrifice comfort and beauty to be Green.”
While attendees sipped R&B Cellars wine and enjoyed Vital Choice Wild Seafood Organic Trail Mix, Sophie unveiled the 2012 High Rise Green trends.
Here are some of the Trends at a glance:
All attendees were given beautiful samples provided by generous sponsors: Earth Friendly Products, Grand Somar Lands’ End, Instone Granite and Marble, Living Tree Community Foods, Shear Miracles By Robyn,100% Pure, Sophisticate Interiors, Suki Skincare and Vital Choice Wild Seafood and Organics.
