This year, Greenfield based English greenhouse and glasshouse manufacturer Hartley Botanic will be enveloping visitors to its RHS Chelsea trade stand in tranquility and relaxation with a stylish stand themed around Calm & Wellbeing. The stand will feature three enviable Hartley Botanic Greenhouses, all in complimentary and elegant tones of bronze and grey nestled amongst a naturalized planting scheme that will focus on form and texture. Landscaping and styling have a neutral and minimalist look, bringing together a calming feel with a chic, luxury aesthetic. The stand has been built and planted by Stewart Landscape Construction with design and styling by Llevelo Garden Design.
The three large, handmade Hartley Botanic structures to be shown include; a Victorian Lodge (with two additional single gable end doors) in manganese, a Magnum Opus in bronze, and a NEW six pane glass-to-ground Hartley Wisley 8 Grow and Store in a bespoke olive grey with 2 extra panes at the rear, accommodating a useful, hidden storage area. Contemporary porcelain flooring will be combined with handmade clay pavers to provide a subtle textural contrast and have been designed to sit harmoniously within the Greenhouses.
The ‘Calm and Wellbeing’ trade stand has been designed to show how Hartley Botanic’s elegant structures can offer a calming sanctuary for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. Furniture is minimal to create a light, airy feel, and beautiful dressing elements, such as modern chairs and sculptural pieces, have been carefully curated to exude order and tranquility rather than clutter.
The Greenhouses have a synergistic bronze and grey color palette which, combined with the tranquil neutrals of the hard and soft landscaping and dressing, is calming and provides a stylish, minimalist look. Plantings on the stand are primarily in shades of green, a peaceful color, and the only one which our eyes don’t have to adjust to see. The Magnum Opus Glasshouse will be surrounded by soft planting, and gentle classical music inside the structures will provide a relaxing soundtrack as visitors walk around the stand.
