Nature into Art: The Gardens of Wave Hill

The Wave Hill way of gardening is beautifully captured in the pages of Nature into Art: The Gardens of Wave Hill, released in 2019 by Timber Press. The book celebrates the unsurpassed beauty of Wave Hill while it deeply explores the plants, techniques and design choices that define this iconic space.

Author Thomas Christopher gives attention to the choreography of each distinct garden space—the Flower Garden, Shade Border, Wild and Aquatic Gardens, Conservatory and more—along the way sharing insights on design methods and plant choices from horticultural staff past and present.

Photographs by Ngoc Minh Ngo render the gardens in perfect light, capturing the combinations of colors, textures and forms that make Wave Hill such a magical place.

Available for purchase in The Shop, by emailing or calling 718.549.3200 x249.

The Wave Hill Chair

Offered through The Shop, the Wave Hill Chair is based on a 1918 design by the acclaimed Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld and is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

We offer these iconic chairs built to order and can be painted in Wave Hill green or left natural and unpainted. Pair them with a handsome side table or an adorable child's version of the chair. Orders take approximately four to six weeks and are only available for pick-up. Delivery is not available. Chair plans are available for purchase and can be sent via email or postal mail if you would like to construct your own.
