franSo I am doing what I always do in the dead of winter – dreaming about how I am going to design my garden in the spring. Although my gardens have always been humble, my dream garden has elegant furnishings, like the kind you can find from the fine folks at Charleston Garden Works.

About Charleston Garden Works: “Sprouted out of a passion for gardens and curating quality objects and furnishings. Charleston Garden Works is the place to search for a broad array of decorative garden essentials. Recognizing the need from clients and having collected pieces for years, co-owners Patrick Bradley and Glen Gardner began Charleston Garden Works in autumn of 2014. Scouting the finest antique dealers, markets and historic estates around the world, the pair brings luxurious style to your garden collection. Currently working on their first outdoor product line, Charleston Garden Works specializes in providing a collection ranging from regal urns and grand planters to ironwork, fountains, benches and intricate sundials and sculptures to private buyers as well as the decorative trade.”

Charleston Garden Works has some great items, like…

…the Rococo Cast Iron Bench: “An American Rococo cast iron settee in the “Renaissance Scroll” pattern. This circa 1900 settee depicts rococo and Renaissance motifs. Old repair to front right leg and seat. New repair to both back legs. Overall very stable.”

…or this lead statue of St. Francis (above right): “A lead statue of a robed Saint Francis on a roped pedestal, from a Philadelphia estate. Two pieces.”

Because you can never have too many works of art featuring St. Francis, right?
