The al fresco season just keeps on coming. Sun is shining and the weather is sweet. Ish. In my part of the world the sun rises at 4.32 and sets at 21.48. The number of daylight hours is rather fantastic. And so are the inspirational designs -w21-2022.
- I love mesh, think it’s fabulously sexy. How great to see that it’s now also applied outdoors. This architectural mesh by Kaynemaile was featured at the Melbourne Garden Show in 2019 and comes in black, steel and copper.
- Verpan is a Danish company that offers a carefully curated selection of Verner Panton’s timeless designs since 2003. This modular Cloverleaf sofa was designed by Verner Panton in 1969. The In- & Outdoor version is made from 100% recyclable PE and ready for the outdoors. It’s available in a wide selection of colours.
- Art in the garden can make all the difference. Opt for one pièce de résistance rather than many for focus and an uncluttered look. This fantastic creation ‘Aeon‘ is by David Harber and comprise a massive verdigris bronze sculpture that evokes the form of an Evil Eye. Fabulous colours!
- If bling is your thing, then look no further. In response to the trend of bringing the indoors outside Enzo Catellani has designed the Medouse collection with warm welcoming illumination for Catellani & Smith in glamorous glass.
- Designed by Anki Gneib for Nola Stockholm, new planter Klocka is crafted in sandcast aluminium. The planter is a contemporary interpretation of classic turntables. The surface pattern is made in relief and wraps around the body of the planter and its oversized edge.
- Shortly after I saw the wattle edging on these raised borders at the newly opened gardens at Palace of Holyroodhouse Dain Edinburgh, I read that it also features at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Think I might have spotted a trend here. The traditional look of the edging works really well with the sharp rectangular shapes of the raised borders.
