With the theme “Inventing the urban nature” designers for the 2010 Jardin jardin show in Paris created Spaces in paris to display innovation and mark trends in urban gardens.   I quite enjoy the way the chairs are set so formally but are also surrounded by the planting — it all has a very regal effect. And I am not sure I would tend towards green furniture for the garden…I generally like a bit more color…but this works for me.  What do you think?  Do you like green furniture in the Garden?

– oh – and you might ask — where would you get a chair like those in this garden….well I found that too…(not exactly — I am working on it – but close) — it seems there might be a trend here for this kind of furniture…

This woven chair is from Aprro.

  1. I love those chairs, they remind of something out of a Dr. Seuss book. They’d be really spectacular in some other bright colors.

  2. Thanks S@aha and Amelia — of course anthro has them — they have all cool things….I have to remind myself to check their website because these boston stores don’t carry all the same stuff as elsewhere.

  3. i believe the color is paris green. the best thing about it is that the more you use it, the more it disappears into the landscape

  4. Am I the only person here who loves these chairs but does not love them in this garden? They go well beyond just being a focal point… I barely look at the plants, the ground, the relation to the sky. The chairs are more architecture than garden furniture, I think.

Before & After: Tsukubai Front Garden

Before & After: Tsukubai Front Garden

I would say that this is a typical, under loved entry way, but the makeover that this homeowner gave to the front of his home is so perfect and inviting and radically improves the curb appeal. This is a tsukubai (蹲踞?) garden.   A  tsukubai is a small basin provided in Japanese Buddhist temples for visitors…

Daily Garden: On the Maine Coast

Image found via Jon Setzen from Art + Commerce Image Archive William Abranowicz’s series of photos from an “Island in Maine” seems like the perfect summer garden.  I most appreciate the beautifully simple and handy rainwater shower.  It seems this place is the perfect garden in which, to get away from it all.
