RFL Home & Garden Expo 2016 – Galland Homes, M. Law Designs, Maven Homes

with 3 comments

The RFL Home & Garden Expo 2016 is now open and will run to March 6th. It’s the largest and longest running event dedicated to Home & Garden in Second Life™ and raises funds for Relay For Life – The American Cancer Society. Read more about it on their extensive website.  As you can imagine, there’s all sorts of exhibitors from well known brands to up and coming designers, hobbyists and professional merchants. Each exhibitor is required to release two brand new 100% donation items and there’s also a wonderful 50% donation gacha section and even a special hunt!

Today, I’ve got beautiful Home & Garden pieces to show to you from Galland Homes, M. Law Designs and Maven Homes.

M. Law Designs  – designer Marcelo specialises in all sorts of outdoors and garden themed sets and homes, often on a romantic theme.   For the Expo, his two 100% Donation items are the “Saanich Deck” and the “Fernie Shed Hammock”. There’s a good male and female animated pose in all the chairs of these sets.

The Deck is rezzed as a coalesced object which you can split up and remove the chairs and decorations to be left with a deck, sunshade and decorative flora so it’s a versatile piece.  Land Impact is 25 with all the pieces out and Permissions are Copy/Modify.

The edge lights show up beautifully in the evening!

The Fernie Shed Hammock is also rezzed as a coalesced object and you can remove the hanging seats and use them separately if you wish.  Fernie is LI 32 when rezzed in total. It’s full of detail and provides a relaxing place to put in the garden or on a grassy riverside. I took one of the hanging seats and suspended it from a nearby tree. Looks very comfortable!

Galland Homes – designer Robert makes the most stunning homes and landscaping items to go with them. They are often themed and based on areas he’s lived in or visited. There’s a new release home called “Cloverleaf” at the Expo and I include Robert’s ad for that here –  so do go and visit his stand and you can check out the rooms inside. There’s even a garage!

For the two 100% Donation items, we’ve got the “Outdoor Fire Pit” at LI 5 with a splendid particle fire which the pictures do not do justice to. This is low Land Impact at quite a size, here I’ve got it balanced on a river  bank which gives spectacular views.

The “Outdoor Fireplace” is another stunning piece with plenty of detail and handy areas for other items to rest on. It’s also LI 5 and Permissions for both these items are Copy/Modify. I shrunk this down a little bit to fit in with the size of the tree and got LI 4 so it won’t break the bank.

Maven Homes sell beautiful luxury homes – some quite modern and some themed – plus smaller landscaping and decor pieces.  Their two 100% Donation items are the “Wavy Shade Floor Lamp” and the “Angled Coffee Table”. Both of these are statement pieces.

The lamp is LI 2 with Permissions of Modify/Transfer and contains a lighting script for various degrees and shades of light – very useful. I used the ‘Brighter’ option to light up a dark hallway here. You can see the spread of light on the wall.

The coffee table is just a stunning piece and looks extremely good wherever you want to place it. It’s only LI 1 with Permissions of Modify/Transfer.

    • Robert’s a very interesting builder. I interviewed him once for LTD and he’d had to take time out because of health problems but he’s back now and with a vengeance! He’s got a home out at the current round of Cosmopolitan you might want to go and see.
