Yoshinobu and Tomomi Kondo, collectively known as TOKIIRO, are garden and green interior designers, authors, exhibitors, holders of workshops and purveyors of beautiful gardening containers. Their atelier in Tokyo offers a wealth of ideas for adding succulents to your living space.
The floral arrangements presented in the alluring guide to growing succulents in small containers are both idiosyncratic and striking...The sophisticated designs draw on a variety of textures-such as the long, dangly string of pearl plant; leafy little missy; and spikes of the silver pet plant, particularly for the hanging plants.
