Considering that my one and only plant is perpetually on its death bed, to say that I lack a green thumb could be construed as an understatement. Audrey II, as the pretty plant has been named, is very high maintenance. Fortunately, Thai home furniture company Ayodhya's Secret Garden Collection is bringing nature indoors - without the effort and attention that traditional, live plants require. Each table consists of various types of dried moss beneath a transparent glass tabletop; no watering necessary.
Secret Garden Collection. Designed by Ayodhya Trade.
This indoor/outdoor collection was shown at The International Furniture Fair in Singapore 2010 (IFFS) alongside Ayodhya's series of products made from recycled newspapers: mirrors, stools, trays and boxes. The Thai company's designs are traditionally eco-friendly and sustainable, based on natural fibers found in an Ayodhya abandoned local eco-system. So beyond enjoying the simplicity of maintenance-free lush landscape, you can feel good about supporting environmentally-friendly design.
