“We believe that good design is green design and things that last for many lifetimes are things worth buying,” says Dennis.  “Our clients are encouraged to buy less, but buy the best they can afford. At our firm the concepts of luxury and green co-exist. Our definition of luxury, however, isn’t having a lot of things—it is valuing quality over quantity. The quality we are talking about is organic, renewable, recyclable, healthy, and beautiful.”
