DESIGN INSPIRATION: 5 OUTDOOR PRODUCTS WE LOVE
Are you forever looking for great design to fill your home? From beautiful building materials to handmade accessories that finish a space, we are also on a continual quest to unearth new, interesting and sustainable products. This year we found quite a few amazing things that we cannot wait to use, and we wanted to share them with you too! Here are some of our favourite outdoor products that have popped up on our radar recently.
1. Nood Co concrete products
If there is one material that will never go out of style in outdoor spaces, it’s concrete. So we were very excited to discover this Australian company doing amazing things with this humble and hardworking material. Nood Co has found the balance between durability and aesthetics, and we can’t wait to try out these chevron tiles as a wall or floor feature. Their concrete sinks are also ideal for outdoor kitchens.
2. Glowpear planters
Want to grow your own herbs but don’t have a garden? We don’t think that’s too much to ask (that’s why we are called The Small Garden, after all) – so let us draw your attention to these Glowpear planters, which are perfect for small spaces like courtyards, balconies and empty walls. They have a clever self-watering feature that allows your edibles to absorb water when they need it, so you don’t need to fret about over or under-watering.
3. Inartisan Priya Square Floor Cushion
It’s the finishing touches that make a space special, and these cushions are just that. Inartisan’s Priya cushions are handwoven using water hyacinth, and the natural fibre complements natural colours and forms. We love these cushions so much that we recently purchased some for our own garden.
4. Byron Bay Hanging Chairs rattan folding chairs
The season for spending time outside is upon us, and these rattan chairs from Byron Bay Hanging Chairs will take you from your own small space garden to the park, beach and beyond. The rattan adds texture, and the design is ideal for propping up beside a small-space plunge pool or setting up on a small balcony while reading a book
5. Gather Co Indigenus planter collection
It is no secret that we take planter design seriously (so much so, we often have our planters custom made) – and this collection is one that will bring character to any outdoor space. The Indigenus collection of planters by Gather Co has been created in collaboration with designers and architects from South Africa. Handmade from sustainable materials, each sculptural planter celebrates slow design. Influences throughout the collection range from mid-century design to the form of tuber plants.
These are just some of the wares we have stumbled across during the year! From all-in-one designs made in Belgium to plant tiles, we share more of our favourite finds on social media.

Happy shopping, designing and decorating!
