In 2001 brothers Isaac and Jaime Salm started MIO in based on the principle of “Green Desire”.

MIO’s mission is “to bridge the gap between business and sustainability — to transform sustainable products into desirable products”.

“Green Desire occurs when consumers actually crave products that are sustainable and responsible. This natural demand could ultimately drive the cultural shift necessary to align consumer desires with what is good for the environment.”

MIO bases their beautiful designs on the belief that affordability and sustainability should “go hand-in-hand”.

“Tools for greener living have to be attainable to as many people as possible. Each person has a footprint; the more footprints MIO can reduce, the lesser their environmental impact. Manufacturing products locally whenever possible engages MIO with the local economy and keeps their prices reasonable, thanks to innovative design and reduced energy, transportation, warehousing, and packaging costs.”

The world is learning more about combining beauty in furnishings and fashion with the ability to sustain a vital environment. Looking for affordable ways to achieve a fashionable and beautiful decor while being eco-conscience is essential for a sustainable future. MIO has achieved designs that married together the necessities needed to achieve the goals of achieving a beautiful decor using eco-friendly materials to create affordable furnishings.

With creativity and thinking outside of the box one can achieve beyond greatness in their goals. Never be afraid to dance!
