Iconic: The Sculptural Tree

via Cote de Texas
This image resonated with me~ while perusing the design site Cote de Texas, by Joni Webb.  What a statement one fig tree can make!  The late designer from San Francisco, Michael Taylor, was known for using trees in this manner.  Here, the founder of Ballard Designs, Helen Ballard Weeks, used a tree in her (former) entrance hall in Atlanta as a piece of dramatic sculpture.  I love this.  Enjoy!  DF *****

  1. Dean, agree and Helen's home is an absolute dream! I have a Fiddle Leaf Fig and love how much it adds to my living room!
