Big Grass Living the largest provider of sustainable home furnishings and garden décor in Texas, won the “Outdoor Lifestyle Store” award at the international ARTS Award gala at Dallas Market Center last weekend.
“This award honors Big Grass as a destination oasis for inspired, stylish, eco-friendly living,” said John Hanesworth, who owns Big Grass with his wife, Duang. “We are proud of our evolution into a nationally recognized business that helps customers reimagine and reconfigure both their indoor and outdoor spaces.” He added.
Working closely with its artisan producers, Big Grass has created and grown several branded home and garden product lines for which it is the U.S source. The Big grass design aesthetic extends indoor ambiance into outdoor spaces. Big Grass furnishings, lighting and other décor pieces are handmade from natural or recycled material, lending themselves to both indoor and outdoor rooms.
Big Grass integrates sustainable business practices into other parts of its business, including using recycled packaging, optimizing shipping space to reduce carbon footprint, and engaging in community water conservation efforts.
Hanesworth said that because Big Grass cultivates direct relationships with artisan producers, selected during regular travels across Southeast Asia and Latin America, the business is able to respond to customer demands while promoting sustainable lifestyles.
“Because we bypass middlemen, we are able to offer our producers fair compensation for their talents, while helping to promote ancient cultural traditions and sound environmental practices with products that enrich our customers’ lives,” said Hanesworth.
Big Grass is the largest provider of sustainable home and garden décor in Texas and the only U.S. source for the decorative Ong® rainwater harvesting jar. The brand name references bamboo, one of nature’s most sustainable resources, to underscore a commitment to products hand-made from natural, sustainable materials. Big Grass takes pride in its relationships with artisan producers, supporting cultural traditions and centuries-old production techniques. These relationships allow Big Grass to enhance its product designs and offerings to meet customers’ lifestyle needs.
