Green with Envy Furniture Collection Reworks the Classics


Lacquered coffee tables, basket globe pendant lamps and revamped vintage dining chairs have joined the green home furniture brigade thanks to San Francisco designer, Kendall Wilkinson.

Her Green with Envy furniture line was conceived with high style and sophistication in mind – adding to the dramatic assembly of gorgeous original pieces and antiques at Kendall Wilkinson Home at 3419 Sacramento Street in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.

“It was a wonderful way to defy conventional thinking on what green looks like,” says Emily Uridel of the upscale showroom. “The installation was conscious, but still glamorous, and many of the pieces have already sold.”

Here’s a peek at the some of the new eco and vintage treasures fabricated by her local workroom:

The Orson Game Table was a vintage piece given new life in the workroom with a low-VOC paint color adding sheen and modern flair.


The Maltese Chair was reworked and reupholstered in remnant fabrics and finished with a low-VOC paint.


The Charlotte Coffee Table is a sleek table constructed from a combination of reclaimed and FSC Certified wood.


The Globe Lamps ($325) were also restored using eco-friendly finishes and energy-efficient bulbs.


Kendall is teaming up with veteran New York designer Bunny Williams to represent Williams’ new Beeline Home collection at the Sacramento store. The line is mostly reproductions of Williams’ favorite furniture and antiques form years of hunting around the globe. While there is no word of eco in the line, we are all still buzzing about the possibility that Bunny will greenify some of her savvy pieces in the near future.
