According to the organization, the awards 'recognize this year's top designs and innovations for a cruelty-free home', as demand for compassionate and sustainable decor and furnishings grows.
Among the winners were H&M Home, which won the 'Best Wool-Free Rug' title for its recycled-cotton patterned rug from the Conscious collection. PETA described the rug as: "An eco-friendly home accessory that helps prevent sheep from being harmed for wool, this patterned rug will be a stylish addition to your abode – and as part of H&M's sustainable Conscious Collection, it's made entirely of recycled cotton."
Eden Perfumes took the 'Best Vegan Candle' award for its soy-wax Lime, Basil & Mandarin candle, and luxury Italian furniture brand Cassina received the Collaboration Award for teaming up with Philippe Starck – who created furniture using apple waste for the brand's Croque la Pomme installation.
In addition, The Fine Bedding Company was awarded Best Down-Free Bed Linen for its vegan Smartdown range made with recycled fibers and Best Feather-Free Cushion went to Hetty + Sam for its Duck Egg & Copper Cushion.
"It's easier than ever for compassionate consumers to adorn their abodes with beautiful, cruelty-free homeware," PETA Director, Elisa Allen, said. "PETA is delighted to honour the forward-thinking companies that are meeting the booming demand for vegan decor with fashionable and functional pieces that are sure to make every space shine."?
