As an artist I appreciate objects inspired by nature. As a landscape designer I feel that furnishings derived from organic forms can easily find a place in the garden. Veronica Martinez, of Madrid, created this ‘Autumn Leaf’ swing which marries forms from nature with the function of pleasure.
This tasteful swing made is made of cast aluminum. Ms. Martinez recreated the sculpture in fiberglass as well. To maximize the understated elegance of this piece I would try using silver chain as opposed to the rope. The leaf comes in any color, but I prefer the neutral or white finish. Its small size is ideal for use in a courtyard or small patio.
Among her other collections, Veronica has created Seta stools inspired from mushrooms and a furniture line called Alba which pays tribute to shadows. All of her product lines are available to view on her website.
