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.

I love those chairs, they remind of something out of a Dr. Seuss book. They’d be really spectacular in some other bright colors.

They’ve had that exact chair at Anthropologie for this year. It’s called the “Shadowy Chair,” http://tiny.cc/9sux9 . They have different colorways too.

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.

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

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.
