The Story of Elegant Earth
Over a quarter century ago, Elegant Earth began as a retail boutique in a charming turreted storefront in English Village near Birmingham. Featuring a wonderful mix of antique and new garden ornament curated by founder Jane Comer, the store drew national attention and amassed a following of designers and home owners alike.
Using the historical reproduction techniques Chadwick Stogner was employing to create garden ornaments, the business evolved into a manufacturing operation that reflected the store’s look and sensibilities by creating pieces that make design statements, solve design problems and just feel right. We share our love of the past and the thrill of discovery with our customers, and strive to deliver the combination of good design and quality that will stand the test of time.
We are truly living in a great time in the decorative arts. The desire for good design and craftsmanship has propelled the industry forward. Discovering, rediscovering, improving, trying new techniques and materials – all these things become manifest in a healthy and collaborative environment. We all benefit by being in the mix and we are all called forward.
So that’s our mission: We move forward! We move forward recommitted to our principals. We move forward confident in craftsmanship. We move forward desiring to make Elegant Earth a legendary brand. We move forward by being open to new techniques and materials. But the most important way we move forward is in collaboration with you. Because our vision is really about inspiring your vision.
