The Illumin Philo Pendant Light by Dyberg Larsen is made from layers of angular polypropylene leaves, in colour, it gives off a lovely glow and would make a stunning centrepiece in any home. Bring the green in we say.

Available from Limelace for £89.00,

Maybe its the hippy in me, or perhaps its my lifelong love of fluro but this to me is a perfect piece of land art (…can it be land art if its painted fluro??). Visible across the desert from Las Vegas, Nevada, and standing at a height of thirty to thirty five foot, are seven large scale totems built from balanced, painted, locally-sourced boulders.

Created by renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s public artwork Seven Magic Mountains is an exhibition that will run for two years. This work sits actually and symbolically mid way between the natural and the artificial, between the mountains and the buzz of Las Vegas.

I only once planned to go to Las Vegas, with the crackpot idea that I would marry one of my best friends. Silly, of course, and thankfully we thought better of it in the cold light of day, however perhaps I could take the very same friend to visit this glorious work of art.

Or, perhaps there is a client brave enough, who would let me take this as inspiration for an stand out garden sculpture… come on client, show yourself!

I have been lucky enough to experience Rebecca Louise Law’s wonderful floral artworks at The Chelsea Flower show. She hangs flowers from copper wires on the ceiling of a tunnel making a suspended garden above visitors heads, they are simply enchanting all who walk under them.

Here are a few images of pieces from her website. They really are quite spectacular and I seriously covet the display glasses filled with masses of floral fodder.
