If you ever thought of having a multifunctional concrete vessel around the house, Deborah Brackenbury has created the perfect product. The Impure Vessels are hand-made and come in a variety of colored patterns. If you wonder what makes them so special, it is the process that consists in layering, hand-rolling and hand-cutting colors of concrete. Then, the green concrete is wet-carved and all the colored pieces fit into it. It is because of the concrete that these vessels can be used both inside and outdoors. If you want to make a fruit arrangement on them, you can do it without any worries, because a food-safe waterproof sealant is used for the finish. Other functions? Sure: serving platters, vases, birdbaths or any other decorative design. To purchase concrete vessels, contact Deborah Brackenbury at dbrackenbury @ cox.net or 405-360-8662.

This contemporary design makes the beanbag take the form of a hammock. No worries, it is large enough to fit one or two persons and a couple of fluffy pillows alongside. It only depends on the size you choose to have it in. Extreme comfort and ease of use make it the perfect accessory to keep indoor or outdoor lounging at the highest level possible. It will conveniently modify itself by following the shape of your body. Also, this beanock is designed to be suspended from all four edges using high quality metal rings. So the oversized hammock, le beanock, provides maximum safety when swinging in it as long as your heart desires.

Did you ever feel you want to be one with the world, the sky, the water? How about a negative edge swimming pool to provide this feeling for you? The pool is part of an escape overlooking the mountains that received the ASLA 2008 Residential Design Honor Award. Every boundary is thrown away by the design of this pool. Large stepping stones seem to be floating right above it. A minimum amount of space was left in between the stones to see your moving image reflected in the water. The perfectly polished stones frame the pool from two opposite sides seeming to be the only ones holding the water into place. To admire the beautiful landscape, you can make one step further on one of the stones and get closer to the stillness of nature. Get the inside scoop of the entire project incorporating the negative edge swimming pool over at ASLA 2008.
