Blog of the Week: My Urban Garden Deco Guide

My Urban Garden Deco Guide is this week’s blog of the week.  I am so excited about this site because Anne Robert – a Paris based garden blogger has a knack for finding the most interesting products for Urban gardeners.   So many of her features have not yet reached our US shores, but I look forward to seeing what is coming our way soon.

Like these…

From Ikea’s 2009 collection — I have searched the US Ikea website and find no mention of the Patio day bed designed by Wiebke Braasch, but I am so hopeful it will show up in stores later this spring.

IKEA Outdoor Daybed 2009 Veranda Collection.

and this is another favorite that I found on her site…

‘The Concrete pod . Exhibited at the Concrete Art Museum 2005 in Nagoya, Japan, this contemporary cocoon is constructed of reinforced concrete, with a height of 1700mm and the shell just 15mm thick. According to the architects, “A minor axis of a hen’s egg is about 40mm and thickness is 400 microns, so it means this concrete shell is just like an expansion of a hen’s eggshell.” And although this modern structure is “hen’s-egg thin,” Concrete pod has the enough strength to support a grown man sitting on top. Speckled with holes, the shell offers a sheltered environment while maintain a connection with the exterior environment. Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio ‘
