Paris, Part Two


I guess it’s not all that surprising that a Parisian arts and culture centre with a giant golden flowerpot at its main entrance would lead me to discover a modern garden pot company.


Teracrea was at the Pompidou Centre as a temporary exhibit at the Printemps Design studio. I wasn’t allowed to take photos in the studio, so snapped this one from across the foyer. Hehe.

Anyway, Teracrea is a company “creating products designed to introduce greenery into internal architecture and offer new solutions to traditional pots for outdoor plants.” Exploring the concept of “greenery as a means of organising the space around it using different and alternative materials than terracotta,” Teracrea has introduced some fabulous new products.


Their Airplant is going to be a big seller, since tillandsias are so hot right now.

I also really like TV, above.


And since I am That Kind of Traveller (that is, disorganized, random, open) I literally stumbled into the Musee de Quai Branley and Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Garden. I’d thought this living wall was to be found at the Pompidou Centre, but wasn’t too upset when I found that it wasn’t. “I’ll run into it later,” I thought. And I did, later that rainy day.


How much do I love this living wall? I’d love to put one in my garden. Or maybe my bathroom. Love it. Love it. Love it.


Tomorrow: Giverny, and Monet’s garden.
