it’s a short season in new england – and we all like to maximize our time in the great outdoors. from small city patios to wild expanses – mountain overlooks to seaside dunes – we offer containers + planters, select (and very special) outdoor furniture + some fun ‘garden ornaments’.
distinctive garden pots cast from estate originals – almost every piece has ‘a story’ – every piece is stunning! large or small, classic or contemporary, city or country – wonderful styles + shapes to combine. lightweight + durable (leave them outside all winter, move them around easily) – available in limestone, matte black or lead grey. every piece is made to order in the usa. we love this line + we are delighted to help you select your pieces.
campo de fiori
beautiful aged terra cotta planters + pots (and a fabulous wire ball) – designed by the amazing Robin Norris in Sheffield, Ma. – hand thrown in mexico – each piece is infused with moss – just wonderful.
we have been working with our ‘cementitious’ artist JOHN LAMOS since we opened Artefact Home|Garden in 2011. John is known on the west coast for his custom installations – just amazing. this year he has launched, what we think, is an intriguing collection of styles + shapes.
