Daily Garden: Christophe Ponceau’s Paris Show Garden

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.

Marc Giai Miniet’s March of the Dwarfs

I may be reading into this, but I think the message here has something to do with the gassing of gardens and the need to knock it off before we kill more than we intend to. Installation of ‘La marche des nains’ (the March of the Dwarfs) at the city museum in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France by…

Shocking – For the Record

Winter 2008/09 in New England has to have been the worst since I have lived here, it started with 10 days of lost power and being thrown into a national disaster area and over 20 snow plow visits later finally has ended.  Shockingly, mildly. It is April 22nd, it has rained for the last 24…

Daily Garden: Casa Finistera

I might love every single thing that  Rees Roberts create.  This is Casa Finnistera a beautiful home in a beautiful setting in Cabo San Lucas.  When designers are able to use the vegetation of an arid desert landscape and make a lush and comfortable garden (while staying true to the nature of the climate and…
