Part of living in Arizona is making a good portion of your living space exist outdoors. Because really, who wants to be cooped up inside all day when the sun is shining and the birds are chirping? Personally, I love anything with a bit of Asian influence outdoors—the combination of Zen-inspired fire and water always feels incredibly relaxing and soothing. That’s why I immediately fell in love with The Garden Collection by Stone Forest—take a look at some of their chic new items that would surely make a statement in your backyard. In a hot and dry climate such as Arizona’s, having a water fixture outdoors can provide a great sense of balance and even offer a calming effect. Stone Forest’s Old World Collection offers a variety of vintage-inspired fountains, including the Provencal Fountain, which is reminiscent of an 18th century watering trough and is ideal for a smaller outdoor space; or the hand-carved French Rosette Fountain, made from solid rose granite. Other Stone Forest Old World Collection fountains to choose from include the Alpine Planter and the Three Tier Fountain with Pool Surround.
Not just about water fixtures, Stone Forest also offers the brand-new sleek and totally sophisticated Helios Fire Vessel, which is hand-carved in blue-grey granite and features a bowl-shaped vessel with a rough exterior that sits atop a pedestal. If desired, customizable gas kits are available for purchase through Stone Forest, but are not to be used with wood fires.
While Stone Forest seemingly offers everything you need for a posh backyard, sometimes it’s just better to design it yourself. Stone Forest has been offering custom work to residential and commercial clients for over 20 years now, offering the opportunity to get exactly what you want for your outdoor space without having to shop around.
