I was flicking through an old Homes & Gardens (the British version) circa 2009, looking for inspiration for Dearest Nature. I scribbled down ‘Living Stones’ and a website address. I don’t really remember what these living stones were … and unfortunately, the website is non existent.
But! Using my powers of investigation and sheer braininess (aka I ‘Google it’) I found something.
1. Living Stones are really cool succulents and 2. Smarin
Smarin is a workshop started, I’m guessing, by designer Stéphanie Marin. Quoting from the Smarin website, “Stephanie Marin focused very early on eco-design … she proposes a universe that is non-conformist, playful and dreamlike.”
Labelled as ‘Editions’, Smarin has so many products that reflect natural forms in a surrealistic manner.
I’m pretty sure I want my house to be filled to the brim with these Living Stones… and how fun does the eating tree look?
