Elements Of The Old World GardenSeptember 11th, 2009
Antique columns and urns, wrought iron railings, topiaries and finials are just a few of the pieces that lend age to a new garden. However, to really complete the look – every traditional English garden, Spanish courtyard and French Villa needs a fountain as its focal point.
Stone Forest’s Old World Collection features several vintage-style fountains which provide the perfect accent to everything from the Victorian to the English Manor. These are the type of fountains best used amongst formal terraces and layered hedges to create an established, romantic and radiant outdoor setting.
Stone Forest’s Provencal Fountain is typical of an 18th Century watering trough and adds stately elegance and ambiance to any outdoor space. It is available in two pieces at 36” tall or in three pieces at 60” tall. For larger outdoor areas, their French Rosette Fountain is hand carved from solid rose granite and is made up of 12 separate pieces of granite, which should be assembled and joined by a stone epoxy. Other fountains in their Old World Collection include the Alpine Planter and classic Three Tier Fountain with pool surround.
Stone Forest uses natural materials to create items that evoke the feeling and tranquility of the outdoors. The company offers collections for the landscape, garden, kitchen and bath. All Stone Forest products are made using a form of a natural element, such as granite, copper, bronze, onyx, marble or iron. By using a hammer and chisel, the individual character of the rock, as well as the inspiration of the stonecutter, lend each sculpture a unique quality. Stone Forest’s collections are the perfect addition to enhance residential, hospitality and commercial properties.
