Serralunga, who have been producing stylish planters since 1825, is located in the Biella section of Italy. This group has a tradition of more than 180 years of container production.

Born before the industrial revolution, Serralunga recently changed material typology from traditional clay pots to futuristic models. Serralunga’s concept is to feature classical design lines and post-modern shapes. Today, Serralunga is the leader in the production of contemporary style flower pots, vases, and containers.

The pots are made from rotationally molded polyethylene, and are strong, lightweight and will tolerate subzero temperatures, having a much longer life than traditionally made pots. Serralunga recently commissioned some of the world’s leading designers to create new lines of vases and flower pots for both interior and exterior use. Designers have paid close attention to polymer evolution and have applied new plastic technology to current articles, but have kept their use and functionality unchanged.

Serralunga concentrates on creativity, aesthetics and functional details. Last but not least, Serralunga spotlights traditional Italian prose, beauty, and style in every piece. For more information, go to Serralunga.

These stunning planters look so good, you may decide that you’re going to forget about plants and use them as furniture accessories!

One interesting tidbit is that some of the designers, while sketching their pots, sketched them with specific plants in mind. While some pots might be appropriate for orchids, alocasias, and cannas, others are much better suited for agaves and cacti.

All of these pots, vases and containers come in an astounding array of finishes, including spectacular metallic and lacquer coats. Consumers can contact Gibraltar Furniture to purchase any of these products at discount prices by calling 800 416 3635.

Gibraltar Furniture also has a complete line of landscape architectural products from other domestic and international sources at discount prices. Trevi Outdoor, Modern Outdoor and Studio4LA are a few of the exclusive brands that this Beverly Hills company offers at factory-direct prices.
