GI Designs, a company specializing in custom copper home and garden decor, celebrated five years online in late October 2004. Wayne Lewis, one of the owners of GI Designs, credits the five-year celebration to the unique designs and quality materials of his companyÂs home and garden decor.
Home and garden decor by GI Designs can be seen in some of the most prestigious offices and restaurants across the country. GI Designs manufactured all of the tabletops for the Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar in Glenview, Illinois and BostonÂs 2nd location of Piattini Wine CafÃ© on Columbus. S. Davidson of American Express Financial said, Â(GI Designs made) our foyer entry way a warm and pleasing environment. The console table, side table and mirror came out really nice. They actually make the fish tank (in between them) look even nicer than it already did.Â
GI Designs offers Neo, modern, traditional, mission, metro and contemporary style table designs. In addition to these various table styles, GI DesignsÂ talented team of artists and metalworkers can create any design in custom home and garden decor a client can imagine. Using high quality materials, such as copper, iron, brass, and many select hardwoods, gives the unique home and garden decor designs added durability.
In addition to constructing copper tables and home decor, GI Designs fabricated all the copper structures found in the Denver Botanical Gardens. ÂDenver Botanical Gardens had seen our home and garden decor several times at the annual Holiday Gift and Garden Market,Â said Greg Isabel, another partner at GI Designs. ÂThey were impressed with the uniqueness of our designs and the quality of our craftsmanship, and they and their members commissioned us for many garden decor projects.Â GI Designs created the Dragonfly sculpture over the West Pond, the grand entrance to the new ChildrenÂs Garden, and many other garden structures using all sorts of copper and hand-blown glass insects.
GI Designs has completed many other home and garden decor projects around the United States, including three custom copper wedding arbors commissioned by the City of San DiegoÂs Clerk Recorders Office for outdoor weddings and the copper arbors fabricated for the ChildrenÂs Garden at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Michigan.
GI Designs uses copper tubing, both round and square, solid rod, flat bar, and sheet copper in their home and garden decor creations. ÂSome of these materials are much more expensive than tubing, but create quite a different look,Â said Isabel. ÂWe are frequently asked, ÂWhy copper?Â Whereas wood will weather and crack, iron and steel will rust, and plastic becomes brittle, copper ages to a beautiful green verdigris patinaÂjust like the Statue of Liberty. The green patina is not like rust on steel, but acts like a protectant for the copper while adding a feeling of quality and antiquity to its surroundings.Â No two pieces of home and garden decor evolve alike, making each piece individually unique.
The beauty, strength, and durability of copper make it the perfect choice for home and garden decor: tables, countertops, chimney caps, trellises, arbors, window boxes, and yard art. Copper is also used to repel slugs from plants, an added benefit to using one of GI DesignsÂ products in the landscape.
