The classical style or something very similar has been around for at least a couple of thousand years - and we think a car looks dated after five years! There is a new slant on the classical urn though: the Beachcomber. Designed by Chris Kabel, this urn reverse recycles. In other words it takes something very modern: the shape of a beach ball, a hub cap, a washing up bowl, a food tray, a lifebelt and turns it in to something old: the classical urn.
In the same way that the classical urn needs the right location, so too does this interpretation. A nightclub perhaps or a quirky modern residence. A little more mainstream is another design by Chris Kabel: the Shadylace parasol. Mimicking the view from under a canopy of a tree, this is such a simple and elegant design, we can all kick our collective backsides for not thinking of it ourselves!
Although not yet shown on our website: http://www.plantcontainershop.com/, the beachcomber is currently available for purchase. A number of other new designer plant containers will also be added to the website in early November 2009.
