Dealer Spotlight: The Sill in New York

We’re besotted with this quirky little potting shop in New York City. Known for a gigantic range of planters and a knack for ‘potting design,’ The Sill has become something of a sensation among New York’s window and balcony gardeners. One of their specialties are teensy-tiny potted succulents that can fit onto even the smallest of window sills. See examples of their work below, and you can find them on Instagram as well.

Dealer Spotlight: Potted in Atwater Village

What happens when two creatives from the film industry with a shared love for gardening and modern design start a business? Potted – one of the most innovative outdoor and garden stores in Los Angeles.

Patio Furniture and Planter Store

Their mantra, “Indoor style for outdoor living,” is made evident with every stylish planter and designer piece of outdoor furniture. Each item and product line is hand-picked by owners Mary Gray and Annette Gutierrez to create beautiful outdoor environments that are designed much as any interior would be. In fact, Gutierrez’s own garden was recently featured in Sunset Magazine for its unique take on landscaping:

“To transform the 3,000-square-foot yard, she created a series of outdoor rooms landscaped almost entirely with potted plants. ‘I get to redecorate over and over,’ says Gutierrez. ‘I just move my pots around a little and I have a whole new yard.'” – Sunset Magazine

Read more about Gutierrez’s spectacular potted garden in Sunset Magazine, or visit the Potted official site.

New Ways to Wok!

The Case Study Ceramic Wok is one of our most popular new planter releases. Now, the large, striking shape will make even more of a statement – with a custom-made wooden stand!

Wok Planter with Stand

Our carpenters have crafted a unique custom stand just for the ceramic Wok. We think it gives the planter both added height and that extra bit of oomph! Get a feel for our Case Study Ceramic line when you visit the Los Angeles Showroom, or order online.
