Trend Watch: Creative Designers for Your Home Update

RESIZED BANNER 2. Bakes Kropp Bridgehampton Beauty Photography by Brandon C. Tobin

Designers Guido Drocco and Franco Mello were way ahead of the curve when, in 1972, they “brought the outside in” in the form of the huge, soft, and thornless Cactus for Italian company Gufram. Celebrating its half centenary, each four-armed hall tree, in flexible polyurethane, is still produced in the original 1972 mold and finished by hand, meaning each piece is unique.

Green, white, red, and multicolored, there have, over the years, been many different editions of the piece, some of which have sold out in just a few days. Gufram recently announced a collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts—limited-edition plants in vibrant pink, yellow, and blue.
