Loading in at Music City Center in Nashville TN

People are always curious about how we move all this stone around, so I thought I'd give you some insights to the process. It starts with a myriad of calculations. The size of the items going to the show, the weight of the items and the load capacity of the truck. Then it's lots of heavy lifting and loading.

When we get to the venue. We MUST have a forklift to unload. We had planned to take ours to Nashville but we weren't able to fit it on the truck. Luckily some very kind folks down in Nashville helped us out. 

With a "load in" time scheduled, the trucks get in the queue and then pull right up to the booth space and unload.

Rett always has a sketch for the layout which we use as a starting point. Adjustments are made as needed. Items are placed in position and then the real fun begins!

The it's time for my favorite part, refinement and fluffing. We hide all the mechanics like electrical cords and lighting fixtures. Put away the tools and fill the fountains. Next we wipe down all the pieces, cover the potted plants with moss and add a great centerpiece to the table.  We continue to make tiny adjustments here and there until we have the perfect vignette.

We are loving the new trend in soaking tubs!

If you haven't checked out the Jan/Feb edition of Veranda Magazine rush to newsstand to pick it up and turn to page 32. A 17th-century watering trough is featured in the master bathroom of the Tribeca Penthouse in Greenwich Hotel in New York.

The thick granite holds the heat for a nice long soak.

Building a Garden

Gardens are more than just a collection of plant material. It is a living, breathing extension of your home, your aesthetics, your heart. 

Sculptural objects can give your garden heart, history and movement. It can be a sculptural element, water feature or statuary. We focus on collecting pieces that can bring a garden to it's full potential, adding structure, rhythm, and movement. All our pieces are hand picked for their unique aesthetic.
