5 plants setup for designers
1) A wall stake for climbing plants
The Anno de Compagnie plant tutors for the house, are presented as a wall trellis made of metal modules, suspended from wooden hooks. These diamond or hexagon shaped modules are assembled together in the playful shape of a honeycomb.
It will be necessary to place pots or planter boxes of climbing plants (indoor ivy, house vine…) under the composition, in order to see the plants growing with the help of this structure. The result, very graphic, dresses the walls of the house in green and metal.
2) A ladder on which to hang your small indoor vegetable garden.
The Satsumas de Ikea decorative pedestal, in the shape of a ladder on which pots hang, is ideal for gardening when space is limited. It can be placed in the kitchen to grow, for example, the herbs that will perfume good small cooked dishes.
The pots can be placed one on top of the other to save space. Designers like this bamboo product because it is practical, aesthetic and original at the same time. This ladder is a good decoration idea which is very suitable for small kitchens.
3) A suspension half planter box half light box
One side light and the other side plant, that’s what the Swedish brand Markslöjd offers, combining functionality and Scandinavian design to offer here an exceptional lighting for the home, on which you can place your indoor plants.
The metal top in which the LED lights are embedded becomes a suspended shelf, perfect to accommodate the most beautiful planter boxes. Designers love this light placed above the dining room table that illuminates the dinner table literally and figuratively.
4) A mobile for hanging flowers
This Madam Stoltz mobile allows you to hang a multitude of small glass containers on the wall or ceiling to let pretty flowers rest in a little water. Gracious and poetic, this nature mobile made with wood branches is an affordable decoration accessory to bring a little natural freshness in an apartment.
5) An indoor suspension to highlight the plants at home
Daniel de Compagnie suspensions are geometric steel structures with a minimalist look. A flowerpot simply rests at the heart of the structure that is suspended from the ceiling.
The structure, very chic, appears like a golden cage for the plant, open on the house. Each of the versions proposed in the range can be used upside down or upside down, allowing you to play with shapes, the ideal being to combine several suspensions side by side at different heights in the house.
