The Brighton Garden Arch & the Arts and Crafts Movement
The Brighton Rose Arch series was inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement, which emerged in the mid-nineteenth century to campaign for design reform. Critical of the shoddy standards associated with cheap, industrial mass production, the movement championed individual craftsmanship, calling for a renewed focus on structure and function. Its influence was evident at the Great Exhibition of 1851, which saw displays of skillfully crafted, lighter objects, free of excessive ornament. Today, that spirit lives on in the clear lines of our Brighton Rose Arch – a quintessentially British blend of understated elegance and perfection in form, of tradition and modernity.
Metal garden arch with integrated planters: Ideal for hosting, events and weddings
The arch’s double frame reinforces its clear lines and pleasing proportions, while its plain diamond lattice completes a picture of unpretentious simplicity. Some of us may feel a tinge of regret when this solid piece of craftsmanship disappears for a time under a cloak of foliage and colorful blooms. Come winter, however, the Brighton Arch will again reveal itself as the perfect eye catcher. This freestanding version supported by side planters (suitable for patios and similar hard surfaces) will grace your garden with the rich heritage of British craftsmanship.
