Grey is the new Black

2nd March 2015

Dark Grey aka Anthracite or Charcoal is definitely the colour of the moment. It was as popular choice in 2014 and we have already supplied Charcoal Grey plant displays to three new offices in the first few weeks of 2015.

 Grey or Green?

Denfield a Marketing Agency based in Leamington Spa wanted to improve their offices with some healthy plants. Green plant containers were originally considered to match the green in the company logo. However dark grey plant containers were finally chosen as a good contrasting colour to the green in the logo and the green leaves of the plant.

Dark Grey in different shapes and sizes

For Denfield's offices we used different shapes and sizes of plant container and different varieties of plants. This diversity was tied together by using the same colour for all the planters, an idea best summed up by that ancient eastern mantra 'Unity in Diversity'

The premises used to be a School and the large Reception display was to be positioned over a trap door to a cellar. The cellar was used during World War 2 as an air raid bunker for the school children. We supplied a low square Quadro container on wheels, so the display could be easily moved when access is required.
