Habitat, IKEA and Zara have been named amongst the winners in the second annual PETA Vegan Homeware Awards.
Often, the focus of a vegan lifestyle falls on food, fashion and beauty products, but homeware can often be filled with unwanted animals products, and in recognising the vegan options that are available, these awards “celebrate the products, brands and designers at the top of their game.”
Furniture giants IKEA won the Best Faux Sheepskin rug for the second year in a row, with the same product – their Tejn Rug that will “add a cosy touch to any room.” Habitat also triumphed for the second year, once again winning in the Best Vegan Bedding category.
Other winners included Anthropologie, with their Angelina Sofa for Best Vegan Sofa, Zara Home with their Plain Weave Multicoloured Blanket for Best Wool-Free Blanket, and Oxford-based Vegan Bunny, who collected the Best Vegan Candle award for their Ginger Soy Candle.
Israeli designer Erez Neni Pana picked up the Innovation Award for his use of salt, soil and clay for his unconventional creations, including his Dead Sea-clay furniture. Instagram influencer Suszi Saunders was awarded Best Vegan Home for her London abode.
Weaver Green, The White Company and Dote won Best Vegan Cushion, Best Silk-Free Sheets and Best Animal-Companion Home Accessory awards respectively.
“Compassionate consumers can adorn their abodes with the beautiful, cruelty-free winners of PETA’s Vegan Homeware Awards,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “PETA is delighted to honour the forward-thinking companies that are meeting the booming demand for vegan homes with fashionable and functional pieces that are sure to make every space shine.”
