|From Urban Gardens|
This week the last of the four classical elements, namely earth, inspired my choice of outdoor décor wish list item. The Végétagère by Frédéric Malphettes, shown above, is a clever play on words as well as a clever design idea. It is a shelving system composed of modular wood shelves with openings for stacking vegetable fiber planter pots. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, the Végétagère can be used as a divider or screen, and configured to suit any planting needs. This system is especially useful for urban dwellers with limited gardening space, and is perfect for a patio or balcony. At this time the Végétagère is only a prize-winning concept rather than a reality available for purchase, but if and when it does come on the market I will be first in line to buy one!
