Look Stylish in the Garden
Go beyond boring terra cotta pots and ugly garden shoes to embrace a nice, clean look while getting your hands dirty.
Willy Guhl’s fiber cement Loop Chair, left, made in Switzerland, combines the durability of concrete without the weight. EcoSmart Fire Stix lightweight outdoor fireplace is the design solution for modern hearth-lovers. Using clean-burning bioethanol fuel, this modern campfire will keep you comfortable and captivated for up to eight hours. Both items are available from Spruce Eco-Studio.
The iconic Spindel planter, designed in 1951 by Anton Bee and Willy Guhl, is made of fiber cement, a recyclable material, and remains an icon of modern design. Its classic hourglass figure makes a striking statement alone or in groups, and it is available in large and small sizes. Pictured is the large 5-gallon size in gray from Spruce Eco-Studio.
