We love the look of galvanized steel, don’t you? It’s so classic, lending a timeless feel to any item which features it.
It’s also right on trend at the moment, the perfect material for the current Modern Rustic look. If you’re a fan of this latest style in interiors, you’ll know it’s all about blending the old with the new, while embracing elements of industrial design. Unfinished metals and clean lines with an industrial edge are a key element on the look: designs which throw a spotlight on the materials used.
The new gardeners’ accessories in our stylish Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball collection capture the Modern Rustic look to perfection, beautifully highlighting the subtle beauty of the galvanized steel.
Two new indoor watering cans combine good looks with practicality. Showcasing the understated yet intricate texture of the galvanized finish, they offer a design quality any houseplant fan will be proud to own and have on display. They’re perfect accessory for your shelfie! Available in a choice of 1 litre (RRP £19.99) and 1.7 litre (RRP £26.99) sizes, both these small indoor watering cans are beautifully balanced, with a slender spout to water your plants – not your tabletop.
In addition, a new seed organiser (RRP £25.99) is ideal for collecting, storing and organising your seed packets. Again, the subtle texturing of the galvanized finish complements the Modern Rustic style. This seed tin has been thoughtfully designed by gardeners, for gardeners, and offers plenty of space for seed storage. There are three compartments for seeds, with one running widthways to hold even very large seed packets, such as peas and beans. Calendar dividers sort seeds by month, so you can be sure to plant your seeds at the right time for optimum germination.
These new galvanized steel designs join the Sophie Conran for Burgon & Ball galvanized trug and bird food tin, so if you love galvanized steel as much as we do, you have plenty of options to add this on-trend material to your home. All these products are available in garden centres & gift shops around the UK, as well as here on our website.
We think these new designs sum up Sophie’s signature ‘modern country house’ style to a tee. Ideal as a practical but stylish gift for a gardening friend, they also make a lovely treat for yourself. Best of all, they put centre stage one of our favourite materials – gorgeous galvanized steel.
