Free concert at the MoMA, the world's longest bench, tips to create a great potting room, and more on today's Links We Love! 

-In the UK, Studio Weave may have constructed the world’s longest bench (pictured), with the ability to seat more than 300 people! It hovers and integrates with its surroundings as its shape constantly changes.  [Gardenista]

-Do you live in NYC? You're in luck. For four decades now, the Museum of Modern Art has offered free concerts in their Sculpture Garden. The next concert is on July 22, and will be featuring classical music with a modern twist performed by students from the Julliard School and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Admission is free! [The New Yorker]

-A potting room is that quintessential area in the house or garden where a gardener can feel completely in his or her element. It is where all tools, pots, and other goodies are displayed and stored, and it can be a craft room or a haven when it needs to be. Here’s what makes a good potting room, what every potting room needs (and where to get it), plus inspiring images and alternatives from rooms in the home to sheds outdoors! [Wall Street Journal]

-Running out of creative ways to cook and eat fruit? Here is an easy recipe for Fruit Butter. Any fruit in season will do, but the recipe uses peaches, pumpkins, and persimmons.  [West Elm]

-Outdoor furniture has not just become popular due to the season. It is a much less chartered territory for designers and furniture makers and many companies have started to expand their horizons. We will start to see more outdoor furniture that looks like it could be used indoors as the market for outdoor rooms grows! [NY Times]
