The latest word in garden furniture

So who says white garden furniture has to be boring and utilitarian?
This is one of the trade booths. I do wonder how this would fare in our wet winters, and whether or not it is to my taste is moot. What I do like is the idea of someone pushing the envelope on what garden furniture can look like.
These displays are housed in a different building, which is the ExpoFlor Lorca, which reminds me of BBC Gardeners' World Live (although in a smaller scale). The EBA bit is actually the bigger part of the ExpoFlor.
What is not evident (and makes the rest of us roadies envious) from these photos is how the Spanish bonsai association was supported by the horticultural sector, the community and local government. My understanding is that the pavilion and the entire display infrastructure were footed by the commercial and government sectors. And the upside is that we get to share these superb conditions for our displays as well.
