Shelterblack: Planters & Garden Goods

Store Profile

Store History

  • Founded: Summer 2012
  • Founded by: Valerie Kileen and Jonathan Boyd

Shelterblack is the result of a design partnership between skateboard and industry designers Valerie Kileen and Jonathan Boyd. They sell more than just garden tools; you can also find planting boxes to create your own small succulent wall, pretty planting containers, terrariums, and indoor-outdoor lighting, all in their signature colorful style. Everything is very reasonably priced and has an urban, industrial edge that is interesting and different from your average garden products. Plus, I find it inspiring to think about what other objects (like plastic dinosaurs) can be turned into interesting planters.

I've seen these clever little dinosaur planters around the blogosphere for a few months now, and I had assumed that they were are DIY project (and I suspect that with a little effort they could be). But then I discovered Shelterblack and their cleverly styled garden products.
