Traditional materials, such as cast ..., 12 May 2015 [cached]
Traditional materials, such as cast stone, cast iron, glazed terra-cotta and regular terra-cotta, remain popular year after year, says Peter Cilio, creative director for Campania International.
On the other end of the spectrum, Cohan and Cilio agree that clean-lined, contemporary containers are a big draw.
They're simple cubes and boxes with an infinite number of configurations," Cilio adds. In particular, sales of the company's fiberglass, polyethylene and composite products are spiking. Cilio says they're durable, lightweight and perfect for rooftop gardens or anywhere maneuverability is needed, particularly in four-season locations where containers that aren't frost-resistant or frost-proof have to be moved inside during colder months.
Cilio says requests for green materials are booming now. Whether homeowners are interested in reducing their environmental impact or contractors are seeking LEED certification for their construction projects, the "2015 Garden Trends Report" agrees with Cilio that green products are here to stay.
"Containers are the perfect vehicle to green up urban spaces," Cilio adds.
Campania International - Campania Design, 26 April 2015 [cached]
In its early years, Campania's designs, under the artistic direction of Peter Cilio Sr., were based on traditional European historical precedents. In time, however, Campania looked beyond classic old world traditions and distinguished itself in the marketplace by developing unique and original copyrighted designs which demonstrate a uniquely American perspective.
Peter C. Cilio, Campania's creative director, is now responsible for the creation and selection of the Campania product line. His discerning eye, developed from a keen interest in garden design, architecture and art history, has proven an invaluable asset. While Peter continues to explore and refine classic garden traditions in his designs, he is not afraid to innovate. His introductions range from refined classicism to elegant whimsy, and from cutting edge modern to sophisticated country. Since Peter is an avid gardener, he understands what is appropriate for garden art, especially texture, patina and the softening effects of age and weather. This sensibility, combined with clean lines and a sense of proportion create the classic Campania look.
In house, Peter is responsible for the design and mold-making department, the cornerstone of which is Eddie Martinez.
Eddie and Peter collaborate continually to refine and realize Peter's design concepts.
Peter also oversees a group of talented independent artists and craftsmen.

"Keep cast stone up off freezing ground," says Peter C. Cilio, vice president of marketing for Campania.
"If the base does freeze to the surface, don't try to move it," warns Cilio.
We've finally gotten over the "snob appeal" problem many people had with poly pots," says Cilio.

Peter Cilio, a renowned entrepreneur, artist and iconic fixture of the gardening industry, died Dec. 16 at his home in Blue Bell, PA after a year-long battle with cancer. He was 78.
Mr. Cilio founded Peter's Home and Garden Center in Quakertown, Pa., in the early 1970s. The retailer pioneered the importing of Italian terra cotta to the states after its
Peter and his son
In 1988, Mr. Cilio's son, Joseph,
stood for quality products, top-notch customer service and a unique mix of cast stone items with Mr. Cilio's hand applied patinas. The small wholesaler began to evolve into a full design and production company. So was born Campania Imports. As only Peter would have it, his family slowly began to surround him, and in the late '90s, his daughter Nina Cilio Reelick and oldest son Peter C. Cilio joined the company to help continue to guide
Mr. Cilio retired from his wholesale business in 2000 when he sold Campania International to a Philadelphia company that continues to operate the business today. At the same time, at the age of 70, Mr. Cilio returned full time to focus his energies on his retail store. Until this last year, Mr. Cilio continued at his intense pace, seven days a week, to develop his specialty retail store with European style garden accents, plants, casual furniture and much more. The retail division of Peter's Home and Garden Center continues to be operated by the Cilio family today and remains a staple of the Philadelphia garden community.
Mr. Cilio's legacy continues even now through his family. All four of his children remain closely tied to gardening industry. Peter C. is a vice president at Campania International; Anthony Cilio is Vice President of
Peter is also survived by seven grandchildren.
The Cilio family would like to thank everyone in the closely knit and caring garden and casual industries who were such an important part of Mr. Cilio's life. Customers, vendors, friends and lunch guests - everyone was welcome at Peter's table, and in his garden. We know today that he is looking out over all of us, content and peaceful in the knowledge that what he has really achieved, his greatest legacy, is the love of the garden he helped instill in the hearts of the dear friends he has come to know over the past 36 years.
