Part III of IV: Sonoma Wine Country Tour

Part III of IV, of the series…Sonoma Wine Country Tour, without touring one vineyard or tasting a drop of wine—what a concept!


Next stop: TRANSLATIONS, a hip importer of reclaimed Elm, Rosewood, Teak and other hardwoods, “repurposed” (yes, another word for “Green”) into modern furnishings and wares. They also import a line of contemporary style teak/stainless steel outdoor funiture (think Henry Hall designs without the price); imported carved stone troughs and sinks; and a well edited selection of wrought iron from Egypt.

This store is artful in every interpretation of repurposed materials.

We passed these great outdoor planters as we walked between Artefact’s and Transaltions. Available from Translations. Made from repurposed propane tanks!


BOCABOLO, their contemporary Italian designed Garden Furniture – made with top grade Teak (or Rosewood) with powder-coated cast aluminum structures and legs, and stainless steel fittings.

Beautiful lines prevail in this Italain designed line of outdoor furniture.


FER FORGE’ MEDITERANEEH (their words not mine), Forged Wrought Iron furniture in traditional European Designs – Tables and Consoles with Marble tops, Chairs, Settees, Benches, Consoles, Mirror frames, Wine Racks, Screens, Chandeliers and Sconces ready to be electrified, and Planters.
