After several years in the making, we couldn’t wait to debut our most recent trellis designs, the Annabel Tipi Trellis and the Geo Tomato Cage, at Dwell on Design in Los Angeles. This was our third year exhibiting at this giant design event, the ultimate indoor/outdoor playground for people sourcing modern living products, innovations, and ideas.
Design lovers, design pros and design journalists (over 30,000!) flock here each year for a dose of inspiration. The feedback we received on our modern tomato cage and tipi trellis was beyond positive! Over the course of the three-day event, we often found visitors of all ages taking respite under our Annabel Tipi Trellis.
Though drastically different in size, both of these new sculptural trellises do a super job at supporting climbing ornamentals and edibles. Many people commented how rare it was to see sculpture in the garden used so efficiently.
Our Geo Tomato Cage can corral tomatoes like nobody’s business, all while juxtaposing the structure’s modern lines and bright colors with the wildness of the plant’s branches, growth pattern and earthy colors. The Geo Cages are stackable and sold in pairs. They will be available in trios for tomatoes or other veggies that might outgrow the traditional tomato cage.
Besides the wonderful mentions from revered design and lifestyle blogs like Lonny and Casa Sugar (thank you!) we received some fantastic press from the Los Angeles Times Home & Design section which featured the Annabel Tipi Trellis below in their gallery of photos from Dwell on Design.
A couple of weeks later, Los Angeles Times contributor Debra Prinzing featured our Annabel Tipi Trellis in a story about tips on gardening during a drought while keeping landscapes beautiful.
We always come away from Dwell on Design inspired by the palpable creativity—from our peer innovators to new clients and design professionals we meet. We want to especially thank the talented design team at Shades of Green Landscape Architecture who’s inspired vision and execution of the entire Dwell Outdoor space make our products shine at at the show each year. Looking forward to doing it again in 2015!
