The Christmas season is upon us and we’re all slowly turning our attention towards our Christmas decor, ready to spend time with loved ones during the most joyful time of year. 

While celebrating the festivities this year, it is also important to consider our impact on the environment. At Funky Chunky Furniture, we have the perfect collection of ethical homeware and sustainable furniture that don't cost the Earth! 

Our handcrafted and sustainable range of Christmas decorations and accessories are all ethically sourced, so you can enjoy your Christmas with that extra peace of mind, knowing that you’ve done a little bit of good for our planet. 

How To Have A Sustainable Christmas

1. Choose Sustainable Christmas Tree Decorations

The best thing about Christmas is decorating your tree! We all wait in anticipation this time of year as we creep closer into the festive period, eager to spread that magical Christmas cheer throughout the home. 

Thinking about the origins of your Christmas tree decorations is just one way to make your Christmas a little more eco-friendly. 

Our collection of ethically sourced hanging decorations and tree toppers will create a colourful display on your Christmas tree. You could choose a trio of Felt Christmas Pud Baubles to sit on a branch, or a cute Felt White Rudolph Reindeer to make your tree that little bit merrier! 

Each of our felt Christmas tree decorations are handcrafted by artisans in Nepal using traditional needle felting techniques and biodegradable materials. Feel at ease knowing that the decorations on your Christmas tree are a safe choice for our planet.  

Dress your table with timeless festivities

Second to your tree, the next thought around Christmas is always the dinner table! From styling to serving, elegant homeware can make a massive difference when dressing up your dining table for Christmas. 

At Funky Chunky Furniture, we source a range of ethical tableware to help you make your Christmas friendlier to the environment. Our Acacia Wood Pizza Board is carved from sustainable acacia wood. It makes a gorgeous centrepiece for your table and is perfect for serving delicious Christmas treats throughout the evening! 

Choosing robust, quality tableware also allows you to enjoy the piece for a long time, preventing landfill waste that can cause irreversible damage to the environment. 

Furniture You'll Use Year After Year

To the right of the Christmas tree is a fireplace with a lit fire. There are three stockings hung above the fireplace. In front of the fireplace is a wooden coffee table that has been decorated with festive leaves. There is also a cake stand with an assortment of mince pies, and a bottle of wine on the coffee table.

While it is important to choose quality homeware that will last you a long time, you should also think about the longevity of your furniture. Your dining table is often the heart of the home. A place to spend special occasions and enjoy time spent with good company. 

The perfect dining table is one that accommodates you and your family for generations to come. A reliable yet beautifully timeless centrepiece to the home that only gets better with age. We have a gorgeous selection of rustic solid wood dining tables that offer all this and more! 

Achieve the Christmas of your dreams with a gorgeous wooden dining table that offers an incredible traditional feeling. Each of our dining tables are crafted to last using sustainably sourced wood, with each one having a 25-year guarantee. 

Make an eco-conscious choice for your dining table this year with one of our beautiful wooden dining tables, and decorate it using stunning homeware from our ethical choice range to be a little kinder to our planet.
