Monday morning shop post - Entanglements

This week's shop post has an outdoor flavour. Entanglements, a business that focuses on metal garden art, has a showroom not far from where I live. When I'm out walking I often pass by and admire their lovely window displays. And I'm also lucky enough to have one of their gorgeous wall trellises in my own home (a couple of pics are included in this post). Entanglements has a great range of metal planters, wall features, sculpture etc and they also custom make pieces according to client design/specification. Anyway, here are just a few of their products that I really like...

Wall features and partitions which make an attractive addition to a garden and are great for screening unsightly areas...





Port holes, designed to display both single or multiple potted plants. They're available in rust, galvanized iron and white....

A range of pot holders and planters available in rust or black. These are a great way to display potted plants when space is limited... They have a small range of furniture, including these rust cubes with either a cushion or concrete top...


Gorgeous garden sculptures. The 'sommersault' is my favourite and I'd love to have it in my back garden...

An ever-expanding range of garden stakes and growing frames - the lovely 'sweet pea' frames are especially suited to sweet peas, roses or clematis...



Their wall panels come in a huge range of shapes, sizes and styles...



There are attractive, sturdy, contemporary and classic wall trellises that complement the natural shapes of the garden. We bought this one for the lightwell that is situated in the middle of our house...
Here are a couple of shots of what it looks like positioned on the wall in the lightwell of our home. The Porters Paints render looks a very different colour in each of these pics, but in reality the colour is actually somewhere between the two. The trellis is nearly 2 metres long and is a perfect fit for the space. I love the French feel of it...




And finally, here are some pictures of Entanglement's garden display at the recent 2009 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. The display shows how several of the company's products can be used to create an absolutely stunning drought-tolerant garden area. Entanglements worked in conjunction with Paal Grant Garden Designs in Landscaping to create this garden. The garden was awarded Gold in the 'best show garden display' category...






All images are from Entanglements (with the exception of those from my home of course).

Hi Lee
I look forward to your Monday shop posts so much! What perfect timing as we have just finished stage 1 of our landscaping and will need some sort of screening for the side area to hide the clothes lines. This shop looks perfect for what we are after.
I also love the seats in the picture...might go and check it out tomorrow!

Loving your shop posts. So jealous of all the beautiful shops down your way... dare I say it....bit of a wasteland, when it comes to decent shops, old Brissie. Your trellis is to die for! A-M xx

Lee I love the last picture with that beautiful tree!!! I can even imagine that in my garden...plus I love the rusted metal dish with the wood in the foreground (very similar to what we saw at Jindivik, but with water...you will have to come out for lunch and we will go back and get some photos for your blog of the new nursery).
