Online PR News – 22-May-2012 – Wilton, CT – Wilton, CT – Hoffman Landscapes, Inc. award-winning Wilton, CT-based landscape firm is proud to announce their participation in the Bartlett Arboretum’s “Garden Rooms by Design” designer showcase, June 8 through 15.
The week long event features a top to bottom transformation of the Stamford Arboretum’s historical Bartlett homestead by a plethora of top local designers and artisans. The event kicks off with an evening gala reception and fundraiser on Thursday, June 7th, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m at the Bartlett Arboretum, 151 Brookdale Road, Stamford.
“We are delighted to be part of this event,” says Mike Hoffman, president of Hoffman Landscapes. “It’s not often a landscape company gets to showcase ideas and products inside the home. That’s what makes this event unique and fun for us.”
Titled “Garden Rooms By Design - Bringing the Outdoors In," the botanical theme of the Bartlett homestead makeover is to remind visitors of the Bartlett's purpose: to show us how connected we are to nature. Its unique design challenge asked some of the area’s top interior and landscape architects, designers, artists and artisans such as Hoffman Landscapes, Inc., Mural Interiors Inc, Nordic Construction, Inc. and Vandamm Interiors to “think-out-of-the-box” and consider “green” elements in a "not-so-usual sense” in a re-do of the Bartlett homestead’s charming rooms, staircases, landings and gardens.
For the designers showcase, Hoffman Landscapes will collaborate with prominent interior designer, Victoria Vandamm from Vandamm Interiors on the old homestead library. Brian Cossari, landscape architect at Hoffman notes, “Every landscape starts with a vision. Our room at the Bartlett will give homeowners some great ideas of ways they can enhance and use their backyards this summer.”
From live plants and floral paintings, to revitalized wrought-iron furniture and statuaries, visitors to the opening reception and showcase will find innovation and change in every part of the old homestead thanks to designers who were given the opportunity to freely showcase their design skills in a unique and creative approach.
Both events coincide with the magnificent Spring Garden Tour, one of the Arboretum’s main fundraisers that occurs this year on Sunday, June 10th 12-4pm and Monday, June 11th 10-4pm.
