Julia Thompson, an interior designer based in South London, approached Barbara Samitier to create a garden to compliment her stunning Georgian house with beautifully curated interiors. She wanted the garden to feel like an extension of the house and reflect her style while feeling like a ‘proper garden’ with layers of lush planting, movement, fragrance and seasonal interest. Samitier struck the right balance between outdoor room and garden by developing a well thought through plan, a stunning planting scheme and palette of materials (Porcelain combined with natural and reclaimed materials, old industrial mirrors, etc.) The Anglepoise® Original 1227™ Giant Outdoor floor lamp was instrumental in bringing the inside out. As well as being a feature in itself, it anchors the design, brings scale and defines the lounge area. Oh and it’s fun (like Julia’s interior) and very functional
