Eye of the Day is my go-to source for garden “jewelry”. They have unique pieces in a broad range of styles, customized services, excellent quality and exceptional service.
As landscape architects in the Santa Barbara area, Eye of the Day is our main local source for beautiful antique, traditional, modern and unique outdoor pottery and fountains. Brent and Suzi are extremely helpful and work diligently to source and finish pieces that will complete all genres of landscape design. Their Italian terracotta lines are extremely well made and many of my clients now seem to expect that level of craftsmanship from the pieces we select.
We’ve found ancient stone relics that Eye of the Day painstakingly brought back to their original beauty and modern concrete pots that they gave the perfect tone of stain to compliment adjacent architecture. The showroom has such a variety in stock that we often bring client’s in for a couple hours to tour and get inspired. Brent is also constantly sourcing new pieces, so there’s always something new to find.
My search for a garden worthy concrete bench ended at Eye Of The Day garden supply in Carpinteria. The owner, Brent, was so helpful, hauling out catalogs when we realized my dream bench wasn’t on site. We found it, I ordered it and they will deliver it to my site. Doesn’t get better than that. And did I say that it was reasonably priced? I will definitely shop there again!
Just a quick note to tell you how much I think of your professionalism: the packing was exceptional and service was stunning. You have a great staff behind you.
Thank you [we] went crazy when the pot came in. They are both beautiful. I’m sure you will be hearing from me again. Thank you for your help.
Pots arrived safely!
Many many thanks to you & Suzi for your kind assistance.
The pots arrived and all is well. We just need to fill them up with flowers and grasses. The pots are just as we hoped they would be. Thank you.
Thank you for your support. By the way, the birdbath you donated a few years back is a popular resting spot and has frequent feathery visitors every day. We especially enjoy watching blue birds when they get a sip of water. We truly enjoy your contribution to the garden.
A quick note to let you know that I love the terra cotta pots! They are even more beautiful than I imagined from your website. Brent just delivered them and is on to his next stop. It has been a real pleasure doing business with you and we will definitely get up north to meet you in person sometime soon.
Brent and Suzi do an amazing job curating, fine tuning, and stocking their store with the best assortment of antique and high-end European and American garden pottery, statues, and furniture. They are my go-to for any client who wants and understands quality, and who wants garden elements that will withstand age and weather, while remaining timeless.
The products at Eye of the Day are indispensable for my historic restoration projects – whether Spanish, Italian, French or English – and they also pair well with high-end contemporary and eclectic designs. Great service and a fabulous product; I couldn’t recommend them more highly.
I am a landscape architect who has been in the business for over 30 years and have been working with Suzi and Brent of Eye of the Day as long as they have been in business. Their selection of garden design decor is beautifully curated and appeals to a wide range of styles. I am always impressed by their knowledge and customer service. They go above and beyond to make sure that my clients are pleased with the pieces they have purchased.
Our pots arrived yesterday afternoon! They have added to the ambiance of our home and we love them. Thank you, and please pass on to Brent and the others how much we appreciate their work and patience in getting our beautiful pots from Italy and France to Reno, Nevada!
Many thanks for your professional assistance. It meant a lot.
Brent arrived in fine fashion…placed containers and soil, keeping me entertained the entire time!
Brent’s a storehouse of information and knowledge. Am certain our new fig palms will look GREAT…just what the doctor ordered!
Such a joy! Everything’s in order, thanks to you and Brent.
It came last night, and I just opened the “Fort Knox” box! Thanks for having it packed so sturdily. It is in one, gorgeous piece.
I may order another of the same later this year. Doing business with you has been a long-distance pleasure. If I am ever in your area, I will definitely come to your shop.
It’s always a pleasure to work with everyone at Eye of the Day. They are extremely accommodating; if they do not have what we are looking for, they will make the effort to look through all their catalogs to find it for us–that includes pots and fountains. They also will make a pot or a fountain in any color that we want. They are always friendly, helpful, and they make our job easier.
As landscape designers and contractors for over 40 years, we appreciate and insist on associating with other professionals who are at the top of their fields. That is why we deal exclusively with Eye of the Day Garden Design Center. They select the finest products from around the world and they can be counted upon for excellent service and follow up. Brent and Suzi are a delight to deal with and we can be sure that our customers will be treated well. No one does it better than Eye of the Day, that’s why we use them!
For this project, we were looking for the perfect fountain to serve as centerpiece and Brent guided our customers to the perfect one. They also took care of the installation which was flawlessly executed. There were another items chosen for this project, such as the low bowl, bench and more. These items fit seamlessly into the design.
When looking for high quality, unique planters, fountains and pottery for my garden designs, I ALWAYS find my way to Eye of the Day. Their pieces are unique, and varied which can accommodate any specific landscape design from contemporary to Mediterranean and everything in-between. Not only is the merchandise exquisite, but there is not better service in Santa Barbara County. Brent, Suzi and their staff will help you with any and all details, and to top it off, I get to play with “Shorty” during my visit!
If you’re looking for beautiful pots, fountains and other treasures for the garden, look no further than Eye of the Day. With a huge inventory of unique, high quality pieces it’s our go-to place for that distinctive piece to make a garden special.
As a designer in Malibu, Eye of the Day is one of my “go-to” sources for European and hard to find indoor and outdoor containers. It is well worth the one hour drive!
Eye of the Day is an incredible resource for pottery, fountains, and other garden art elements. I highly recommend Eye of the Day to landscape architects/designers/contractors as well as to home owners.
Eye of the Day has gorgeous high-quality terracotta pottery. Definitely worth a trip from Orange County. Wonderful, helpful employees. I will be returning.
Details matter. They matter a lot. And, that is why I started frequenting Eye of the Day. I find items no one else has. They can’t. They are one-of-a-kind items. My clients expect and deserve the best and they do not want to see themselves coming and going. I can find a beautiful fountain or pots at the shop or Brent will look for me when on buying trips home or abroad. The quality is absolutely the very best in the world.
Every time I go to the shop I am warmly greeted and given full attention to help me select just the right things for each project. Every single person is happy to help me find anything I may need. It might be a small object or something monumental or just a recommendation on where to find the best food in town. Over the years we have established nice friendships that we pick right up whether it’s in the shop or in an e-mail or over the phone. And, that is why I continue to frequent Eye of the Day. People matter.
I love going there!
I absolutely love Eye of the Day’s products and use them whenever I can in my clients’ gardens. The antique olive jars are my favorite, adding a touch of elegance to any garden.
Eye of the Day Garden Design Center is the best!
