Arik Levy Design

elevation planter by arik levyYou know those funky little v-vase shaped wooden trellis’ that come shoved in grow pots with climbers?  They do the job long enough to get the plant out of the nursery — but you know what I am talking about when I say — only just.

But the idea of a pot based trellis that is actually fully functional — but also attractive…why didn’t I think of that?  French Designer Arik Levy did and he is making them quite handsome.  I can easily imagine a dainty white jasmine (I have no idea why I am so jasmine obsessed lately) strung delicately over the grey version.  I can move it outside in the summer and in for the winter.

Before & After: A Muddy Backyard Transformed

I always thought that long, narrow yards would be the most fun to work with- they seem perfectly proportioned for an inviting flagstone path, and that’s exactly what these homeowners decided to add. What started out as a soggy, muddy back yard quickly transformed into a welcoming retreat.

Branch & Stump Lights by Marco Steffanelli

By day, I suspect these light to be hardly worth noticing.  After all, the resin has been shaped and molded to be an exact replica of the section of wood (or cement) that it was drawn from.  But by night…..it is quite different.   Italian designer Marco Stefanelli has created a series of these “naturally” formed lights…
