Storage Solution: A Customizable Garden Shed from Germany

June 16, 2016

Larch forests in northern Europe and Siberia produce lumber highly prized for its durability and waterproof qualities. Larch is in fact the wood of choice if you are constructing a hull for your yacht. Or a garden shed.

We particularly admire a tiny freestanding shed that can be customized with add-on wooden modules to create extra storage. Call it a garden closet, as retailer Manufactum does, noting:  “Overall, a piece of furniture that can find its place quite on the terrace.”
