Showcase your indoor garden in style

by Danielle Urbina

The cool beginnings of winter are a reminder for homeowners with green thumbs to bring their gardening indoors. Not only do houseplants breathe new life—and oxygen—into your interiors, they also add color and are proven to be natural air purifiers and mood lifters. Though plants themselves are vibrant, you’ll want to showcase them in a way that’s stylish and appropriately decorative. Whatever you’re into—air plants, succulents, palms, or cascading greenery—ditch the plastic pots for well-designed containers that will help add natural flair to your living room and bedrooms.

The midcentury modern–inspired base is powder-coated and easy to lift, while the cement-and-stone planters are finished in a bright and airy white.

Project 62  Wood and Stoneware Indoor Planter

This slick, ceramic planter is a darker, moodier alternative to colorful planters, which makes it easy to blend in with homes of most styles. The slim base is made with natural wood, and the black container is deep enough to plant anything from fanned palms to fiddleleaf fig plants. The freestanding base is easy to move and there’s no drainage holes in the container, so you don’t have to worry about muddy messes.
