Nowadays many new materials have been found and will predictably be replacing the old material such as wood, bamboo and others soon. However, the question whether the new material safe and friendly for the environment are still being questioned? Each material has different strengths, weaknesses, special characteristics and textures. Their natural physics can be adjusted and treated according to function before they can be applied to design, especially for interior design, furniture and interior accessories. Choosing the right material for design should be done in several selections and processes. One of the important selection is sustainability and green design aspect on the material. This is going to be the most important aspect to be considered in designing in the future. The aims of this research are selecting several natural materials that represent green materials and materials that can be recycled. The methods of this research were collecting data from primary and secondary resources, and then analyzing the data and separated them based on each criteria of green material and recycle material. It will give more information on the data so that the result can be used as catalog for materials that is easily accessible for a designer and the society.
