Winter is still holding on in some parts of the area and it hasn’t felt very Spring-like since the season started a couple of weeks ago, but that’s no reason why we can’t start thinking of the great outdoors! One vendor leading the charge is EcoSmart Fire, Vastu’s provider of ethanol fireplaces.
To promote their new line of MIX Fire Bowls, we’re offering you special pricing on these two styles when you spend over $1,490 through the end of April.
Buy any other style of fireplace, and spend over the designated amount, and you’ll be able to add a MIX Fire Bowl for just $249 or $149 (for the MIX 850 or MIX 600, respectively). That’s more than 75% off!

Vastu is committed to conducting business in an environmentally responsible way, that’s one of the reasons you’ll never see a printed catalog from us. It also means that we’re always on the lookout for manufacturers and furniture makers who create using eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes.
One of our newest vendors creates contemporary pieces using 97% recycled rubber from tires molded into shapes of various dimensions. The Rubber Cube and Rubber Cylinder come in a total of 10 standard sizes and 8 colors are suitable for both indoors and outdoors and are exceptionally durable.
You can use these as side tables, like our model shown above, or as cocktail tables and even stools.
Their porous nature makes them easy to clean with almost no maintenance and they’re anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.

All of our fireplaces, from EcoSmart Fire, run on denatured ethanol and are completely clean-burning. This gets rid of the need for a vent, flue and all of those other things a traditional fireplace requires.
As the temperatures in the area drop we start thinking about how to stay warm. Winter coats come out of hiding. Gloves, scarves and hats are donned. And if you own an EcoSmart fireplace you’re probably thinking about stocking up on bio-ethanol.
Vastu sells the appropriate fuel for your EcoSmart products by the gallon ($25 USD), or you can buy a case ($80 USD) which contains 4 gallons. We just received a new shipment yesterday of 20 cases, but don’t wait too long to come get yours. As it gets colder these things sell out quickly!

Winner of the 2011 Good Design Award, Australian International Design Awards, the 2011 DesignEx Best New Product Award, and the 2011 IIDA/HD Award for Excellence, the Stix fireplace from EcoSmart Fire is undoubtedly cool.
Designed by Barcelona-based Japanese designer Hiroshi Tsunoda, the Stix fireplace looks good both indoors and out where it resembles a traditional camp fire.
“Consisting of varying-sized tubular stainless steel ‘sticks’ that are secured around an efficient 3 litre burner, the EcoSmart Fire Stix is powered by clean-burning, environmentally friendly bioethanol.”
Stylish, as well as practical (it can heat a 215 square foot space and last for 7-8 hours), Stix is sure to be a hit no matter where you use it. And now that it’s offered in a Gun Metal finish as well as Black, it’s easy to incorporate it in various settings.
Vastu makes a committment to providing you, our customers, with a wide range of choices for eco-friendly home furnishings. We’re committed to conducting business in an environmentally responsible way, working diligently to conserve natural resources and minimizing waste.

The idea of furniture imagery on an accessory like a pillow becomes very meta, but we’re loving the way Lisa Pascarell for Studio Tree pulls it off with this pillow cover featuring a Black Tulip Chair from Knoll.
Even better, the pillow cover is eco-friendly!
“The chair has been sewn using ecospun felt , which is made from recycled water bottles, except for the red seat cushion, which is natural wool felt. ( sustainable resource).”
