We are always on the lookout for landscape inspiration, both vast and intimately-scaled settings (and all in between) to bring fresh enthusiasm to the work. Whether seeking the latest trends from books and magazines, or examining new materials from our vendors, we also need to draw inspiration from in-person experiences. We would turn north of New York City to Storm King, 500 acres of both designed landscape and natural parkland. The expanse of woodlands and fields amassed with grass varieties and native plantings with carefully placed sculptures from well-known contemporary artists throughout the site, gave us both vision and a moment of reflection. With landforms in the background, the group turned to pose for a picture, certainly looking quite happy to have a day out of the office!
