When the Parterre Bench was recently chosen as an engagement gift I was thrilled for many reasons. Celebrating a glorious milestone reminded me of the reason I had originally designed the Parterre Bench — to mark the publication of my first book, Private Newport.
How meaningful, too, that the delivery was to be on the cusp of the holiday season. The selection of white for the color inspired so many captivating thoughts…of innocence and serenity, fresh beginnings, winter white and snowy landscapes.
That first soft snow of the season that reminds us of how pure and fanciful this gift from nature can be. And another nod to the gifts from nature, white butterflies…masters of metamorphosis…celebrating creation.
We wish you a season of joy and enchantment, in and out of the garden.
And in the New Year, when you are considering your next celebratory occasion, we do hope you’ll consider the Parterre Bench. A timeless treasure that evokes merriment, the beautifully-scaled hand-constructed bench can be customized with personal initials and paint selections.
