Coastal vegetation inspired San Francisco Bay Area artist Pamela Holmes’s concrete stool, which is made in the U.S. for McGuire. Heracleum, a perennial herb native to northern California, is pressed into cast concrete, creating a singular print. The base color is a mottled cool grey, while the leaves range from medium grey-brown to deep bronze. Find a showroom here.

Jardin Chest by Baker Furniture

The carved motif on the door of the Jardin chest stylistically reimagines garden foliage in matte plaster. The design hearkens back to the “flower power” of the ‘70s. If you’re looking for something totally beachy, romantic and feminine, this is it. Find a showroom here.
