Speaking of trompe l’oeil, here’s another delightful find I remembered from the AD show as I combed through the business cards I gathered there. Zachary A. Design‘s outdoor furniture looks like it was chiseled out of stone or formed from solid concrete, but is light enough to be moved by a toddler. (See the incredible pic below!)

They furniture is actually made from a combo of fiberglass and coarse sand, so it’s light enough to move around your yard at will, but sturdy enough that it won’t blow away in a breeze (unlike the plastic monoblocs of yore). And it’s all-weather with a very convincing finish — I touched it at the show, and it really does feel like it would age and wear in an attractive, organic way. I’d love to put these modern beauties near a swimming pool this summer. (So who has a pool and wants to invite me over, eh?)
