Add sustainable decor picks to your home with Muji's rubberwood furniture collection - keep scrolling for the top five items to shop!
Heads up, interior addicts: there’s a new furniture trend to keep an eye out for. We’re talking about rubberwood furniture, a more sustainable alternative to other hardwoods. Muji has launched a rubberwood collection and here’s the lowdown: this material is made from leftover rubber tree plantations that have reached the end of their latex-producing lifespan. That makes rubberwood an agricultural by-product of the rubber industry, making it a more sustainable resource than other materials like oak.
Not only is it kind to the environment, rubberwood is also a highly durable option for furniture – that means your interior statements will last for years to come. Resistant to humidity, it’s well-suited for our climate and less likely to warp in our local weather. This material is also smooth and comfortable to the touch when the surface is polished. Want some rubberwood pieces for your home? Here are the items to shop from Muji’s rubberwood collection.
