Focus has been our theme for February. Focus on creating outstanding products that are built to last. Focus on styles that stand out from the crowd made with quality materials that stand up to test of time. Focus on designs that continue to push the definition of what site furnishings are and can be. We are immensely focused on customer satisfaction and the user experience. While the experience of architects, landscape architects and municipalities are important, it is the experience of the users in the community that is essential. This is the core of our focus, creating spaces that create community.
Read on and look ahead to spring with news and innovations from our planter collection. Let's focus on a flourishing future together!
Focused On Keeping Our Customers Happy
Wishbone supplied the City of Campbell River with furnishings last fall for an upgraded stretch of the South Island Hwy, south of Campbell River, British Columbia. We proudly provided bike racks, picnic tables, benches and our new single seat JEM lounge chairs.
Trina, the Parks Technician for the City of Campbell River, recently offered these fine comments regarding the JEM Lounge Chairs that we supplied on the project.
"Thank you to Wishbone for the JEM chairs. They are really comfortable, look terrific and the colours are perfect for the oceanside site. The chair blends the hues of driftwood and ocean and is a perfect complement to our branded City ‘blue’. Sitting in these chairs, placed as close to the beach as possible, is a magical experience. Imagine…a cup of coffee, and easy chair and a view that is out of this world!"
Focused On Creating a Great User Experience
We believe in creating products where user experience is central to their design. Thinking primarily of you, the user, allows us to create solutions for your space. Take our planters as an example. To some, a planter is simply a box that contains flowers. To us, a planter is something that enhances a space, creates a visual barrier, complements the surroundings and provides efficiency for those who maintain them.
Spring is just around the corner and Wishbone has an extensive line of planters in all shapes and sizes to beautify municipal walkways and streetscapes.
Newest Addition to Our Planter Selection
The Beselt Square Planter
A customer approached us, asking for a planter that would coordinate well with some existing furnishings in the community. The style of this planter, with the optional CURVED or SQUARE base detail draws design cues from the other products in the Beselt family. This robust all-metal design is an excellent choice for the municipal environment and has the option to be either portable or fixed with hidden bolt down brackets. The liner inside the planter can be removed in the fall once flowers finish or can be decked out for the holidays during the winter months. In an environment where the growing season is short, plants can get an early start in the greenhouse then be ready when spring has sprung for a stunning summer show of blooms.
Do you want your brand or logo proudly displayed? The side plates of the planter can be customized just for you. Is there a colour that would work perfectly in your space? We've got it! Versatile, practical, and modern, this planter checks the boxes.
Available in Custom Power Coating Colour Options
Seamlessly Integrate Planters Into Your Site Furnishings
Planters can stand alone, or they can be incorporated into unique seating arrangements. Take a look at our recent installation, the Bayview Bench Planter Combo in Ucluelet, BC.
Solutions for the Future from Pieces of the Past
2022 is underway and we have diverted another 27,981 lbs of materials from the landfills! landfills! This has been the foundation of Wishbone Site Furnishings from the beginning, to create “Solutions for the Future from Pieces of the Past”. As our team has grown and evolved, we have become more creative with our designs and site furnishing solutions so the new adage, “Something Fantastic from Recycled Plastic” has really caught on. We love seeing these numbers climb every month and will continue to share the numbers each month.
