At The Elemental Garden, we think of ourselves as stewards of time, always in search of unique and beautiful elements to transform your surroundings. Designers, architects, and collectors look to us as a go-to source for rare and authentic garden antiques, bold furnishings, and unusual decorative accessories, all with a strong architectural aesthetic.
Every few months, we head to France and England in search of fresh pieces to inspire and pique your imagination. Our aim is to provide the very best examples of classical and contemporary garden ornament, from rustic to formal to mid-century modern, at a wide range of price points. All that and much more.
Our clients understand the beauty and wonder of owning a piece of history . . . one-of-a-kind originals . . . objects with souls, brought from another place and time. Pieces hand-crafted and loved by generations long-gone . . . time-worn surfaces and forms that harken back to grand estates or humble cottage gardens.
Although we are known internationally as dealers in fine garden antiques, we intermingle our ever-changing stock of garden pieces with 19th and mid-20th century furniture, mostly French, and a diverse assortment of mirrors and decorative accessories. We also feature a unique collection of antique lanterns and glass garden cloche lights that we have restored and electrified.
In 2015, we added a significant collection of mid-century modern garden pieces, mostly by the iconic Swiss designer, Willy Guhl, in order to meet our clients' burgeoning need for contemporary garden ornament. Willy Guhl pieces are the most collectible and sought-after mid-century garden elements, and we are pleased to offer one of the largest and most diversified collections in the world.
Early in 2016, we began representing Stefaan Eyckmans, a world-renowned Flemish painter of contemporary still lifes in the style of the Dutch Masters. Stefaan's work is now available for viewing at the shop and on our website and can be purchased directly through The Elemental Garden. Early in 2017, Steve Garforth, a master photographer whose work ranges from serene landscapes to gritty observations of street life, will come on board as we seek to expand our commitment to promoting the work of a curated group of exceptional living artists.
