Going Green

by C California Style

Inner Gardens has been the go-to resource for interior and landscape designers since opening in 1990,

and their newly opened showroom in the heart of the Culver City Arts District sets an even higher standard. Tucked behind an all-green exterior are exclusive thumb and scrape pots by Stan Bitters, antique French jars, midcentury modern fiber cement forms designed by Willy Guhl for Eternit in Switzerland, and a new series of artisan planters—all locally hand-thrown and glazed and housing the latest It trees like the ficus triangularis (step aside, fiddle-leaf fig). Owner Stephen Block has transformed the space into an urban oasis—call ahead to see if he is available, because he doubles as an excellent tour guide. 5838 Perry Dr., Culver City, 310-838-8378; innergardens.com.
