LEEDs points eligible woods and finishes = classic beauty.

Here at Modern Urban Baby we love anything sustainable. One approach to responsible manufacturing was represented at ICFF by Connecticut’s ducduc group, introducing their new Mason Gray line. Based in a restored 1897 building on a reclaimed brownfield site, and eschewing particle board and MDF for wood certified by The United States Green Building Council, this company epitomizes smart use. Named for ducduc’s CEO’s daughter Mason, and the Chief Creative Officer’s daughter Gray, 2009’s offerings are intended for “fans of ducduc who also appreciate something more traditional.” Wonderful clean lines and pulls are complemented by hand-applied stains in bright colors (our pick: the fuchsia and green mix) or subtly gorgeous shades including the perfect powder pink. Something about the look says Doris Day film, something says Hamptons, but it all adds up to a green gorgeousness you can be environmentally comfortable coveting. ducduccrib
