Here at Gather Co we want to ensure that the gap between your screen and our surfaces is bridged. As such, we have developed this Texture Guide to provide a general understanding of the finishes across our collection and to offer a sense of the ‘feel’ you can expect from each variety.
*Please note: This is intended as a guide only. Some surfaces may sit outside the prescribed finish as stated below. It is not a Slip Rating, you’ll find that in the “Resources and Installation” section at the bottom of each product page.

Terra is a contemporary interpretation of the mid-twentieth century genre. This well-proportioned range has been designed in van Heerden’s celebrated sublime and subtly curved style, combining the sensuality of pale grey concrete with the warm tones of carved wood. The elegantly tapered planters are placed on a solid Iroko leg base to give a sense of lightness and modernity and create an impression of open space.
The versatility of the Terra planters allows them to stand well on their own, staggered together in various heights, in a loose cluster, or in a mid-century modern style lining a wall.

It’s popularity amongst the design community has grown exponentially in recent years due to its ability to be formed into virtually any size, shape and profile.
