As the weather breaks and garden season begins at your country home or maybe even in your urban terrace, we are all in need of some inspiration, and of course a few objects to highlight the natural beauty. With the fantastic New York Botanical Gardens celebrating it’s 125th Anniversary, what better time to feature one of the best fund raising events of the year—The New York Botanical Garden Antique Garden Furniture Fair.
The fair features a collection of rare and exotic plants for sale, a silent auction and, of course, some of the most renowned dealers in the country, featuring the best of antique garden furniture, artifacts, and objects. A special thanks to our friend and talented jewelry designer Mish for including us as his guests to the VIP event! Scroll through for our highlights and favorite pieces from the fair.
