Lookbook: RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019

23 May 2019

Take a guided tour of our five star Force of Nature garden stand at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Our courtyard design is set to remind crowds of the natural power of plants and the positive impact green spaces can have on modern lives.

Our striking courtyard-esque space named Force of Nature garden, hopes to promote the synergy between nature and human well-being. Showcasing the manipulation of organic materials and imitating naturally occurring, flowing movements, our contemporary and therapeutic green space aims to remind its awe-inspired crowds of the natural power of plants and the positive impact biophilic green spaces can have on modern lives – at home, work or in public spaces.

Our signature steam bent curves are showcased in a variety of scales at this year's flower show.
A moment of calm, our Amble Hanging Seat is an inviting rest.
The courtyard is a welcoming setting for crowds at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show. 

Created using our ground-breaking new design process (combining our traditional steam bending technique with complex parametric modelling) the versatile screens and planters mark the launch of our bespoke services which will pioneer new ways to incorporate our signature curved style into projects of varying scales.

The RHS Garden Product of the Year Award finalist, the Tressa Planter, takes centre stage in the Tom Raffield garden.

“We set out to create a space which people respond to instinctively and feel at home in. We wanted to capture movement and organic forms, as well as explore the power nature can have on modern lives by improving the spaces we live and work in”

Founder, Tom Raffield.
Curves of sleek steam bent timber marry with a coastal planting scheme designed by Sheila Jack, the winner of our graduate competition.
Finishing touches. Steam bent curves of solid oak are sanded to perfection. 
This year's Chelsea Flower Show garden is inspired by the sub-tropical gardens along the Helford River in Cornwall.
This year, our stand features a special planting scheme designed and implemented by Sheila Jack, the winner of our collaborative graduate competition hosted with London College of Garden Design and in affiliation with the multi-award-winning designer, Tom Massey
Our Force of Nature design concept is helping to communicate the importance of connecting with plants and promote the link between horticulture and good health.
An array of aromatic, medicinal and edible planting cascading from the roof-top architecture, curved beds and our iconic Green Range Planters.
Wild flowers, such as 'Ragged Robin', are proving popular with crowds and wildlife alike!
A labour of love. The Tom Raffield and Shelia Jack teams worked very hard to deliver an award-winning experience.
The eye-catching stand incorporates reused and re-purposed materials and many of the elements in the design are going to be re-homed or adapted into further projects after the event, including donating the plants to the RHS Re-Use programme that support schools to develop and actively use a school garden.
