Dwell on Design 2013

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

So this year’s Dwell on Design is off to a great start.  We have teamed with our favorite furniture company Fermob to co-host a booth with them in the outdoor area along with the  Southern California Chapter of the APLD (Association of Professional Landscape Designers) whom Fermob so generously lent their beautiful furniture to for their free landscape design consultations.  Here are some highlights of the show:

This started off a little shaky since we weren’t able to even begin decorating our booth until after 3pm on Thursday.

But by 5pm we had really made some headway. The tile pavers from Concrete Collaborative were what held us up, but they were so pretty we had to forgive them.

We finished around 9pm and were very pleased with ourselves (okay, sounds a little cocky but at that point we were so exhausted we had to be). Because not only had we done our booth, we had also decorated the outdoor patio for Living Home’s absolutely stunning C6 Prefab Home but we weren’t allowed to start that until 4:30pm!!!!!

Here’s the main seating area with a vintage bench and two Sixties Chairs from Fermob.

And here we used a Rust City Planter by the front door with our Plexi Numbers.

Also for the show we used the plexi idea for these letters on a Limited Edition White City Planter in our Booth.  Thought it was cute.  What do you think?

But for us the biggest thing has been the introduction of our newest color on the Circle Pot…Chartreuse!  And the giant rebar tree we put it in was kind of a show stopper too.

Besides our booths, other favorites were BKB Ceramics from Joshua Tree who have also ventured out into the amazing blue tile seen above (and their pots are the photos above that).

Sunbrella was there promoting their beautiful colors and lines.  My cushions have been out for over 5 years now and I never bring them in and they are still going strong.  Rock on, Sunbrella!

There is so much to see and do, I have to stop.  Dwell on Design goes through tomorrow so there’s still time to go.  Get over there!

It’s Spring here at Potted and many of you have been asking about our annual “That’s So Potted” Contest. You’ve got succulents on the brain and you’re just dying to find a weird place to plant them. Okay, we understand. We have similar issues.

 

Entry from last year's contest.

But we have also been saddened by so many of you who have said you don’t want to participate any longer because you don’t feel the voting is fair…WELL WE THINK WE HAVE THE ANSWER–FACEBOOK!!! By voting on Facebook, only one “Like” can be cast per person and the voting pool will be opened up to many more of our Facebook followers. So to that end, please welcome…

“That’s So Potted” Contest 2013 Facebook Edition!

As before, the winner will receive a $500 shopping spree at Potted to purchase absolutely anything they want in our store and because we have an online store as well as our Los Angeles location, the prize is open to anyone in the Continental US.

Here’s basically how the contest will work…

Each Friday starting June 7th, five of that week’s entries will be individually posted on Potted’s Facebook Page where people can “Like” their favorite entry.  Whoever has the most “Likes” by 6pm on the following Thursday wins the round. Each weekly round winner will be eligible for the final round which determines the Grand Prize $500 gift certificate to Potted. There will be 4 rounds and then the final round with the winner being announced on July 9th, 2013.

ModPod Birdhouses by Heather Rosenman

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

So freakin’ excited. We have been wanting some amazing birdhouses but none have floated our boat…too expensive, too cheap, too “I’ve seen it every where.” So imagine our delight and happiness when Mary met ceramic artist Heather Rosenman. And now they are here at Potted…ModPod Birdhouses.

A New York native, Heather graduated The Cooper Union with a BFA in Design and received a postgraduate-level degree from the Basel School of Design in Switzerland. After achieving creative director in the world of branding design, she decided to escape. Fascinated by the flexible construction and surface techniques inherent to ceramics, her functional work pays homage to mid-century concepts and ideas. Heather’s sculptures have shown nationally, most recently in The International Cone Box Show, a travelling show that concluded at NCECA in Houston, Texas (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts).

“Clay is an art medium made from the elements of nature. My hand-thrown birdhouses are the result of a desire to create functional, ceramic design for nature. Clay deeply resonates with me; I love the way it feels in my hands, driving me to cultivate dynamic form, surface texture, color and usability. Where will it take me next?”

Besides being beautiful aesthetically, Heather has done her research to ensure the entry hole on her birdhouses will attract finch, chickadees, wrens and smaller birds, keeping sparrows out. Welcome more birds into your garden with a place to hatch their young so you can watch the wonder!

No two are the same, each one more beautiful than the next. ModPod Birdhouses available now at Potted.
