I attended the Designex trade show in Sydney yesterday. There was quite a big section on outdoor rooms which I wasn't really expecting but it was great to see some products I have blogged about but had not seen in real life like Joost Bakker's vertical gardens and Kif and Katast's fabulous Gingko screen. The Kif & Katast stand was one of my favourites of the day and I loved the new Gingko bench pictured below. There is a poor quality iphone photo that gives a bit of an idea of how you could light this bench to make a real feature of it at night.
The Kif & Katast stand also featured these garden bags called Bacsacs which can be used eiether as a permanent garden for herbs for example or simply for transporting plants.
I am a Sydney based Interior Designer. I started this blog in 2008 while I was at home with my two boys. Time pressure has meant that the Folder of Ideas has taken a backseat to my Interior Design business O'Meara Jones which I run with my business partner Andrea Jones. I still refer to the Folder of Ideas as a source of inspiration and hope that you will continue to do so too !
