This gorgeous planter on stand from Made would make a great feature – piled high with greenery, plants trailing down its brass container, even a splash of colour with flowers would be beautiful. Definitely a statement piece and lovely way to have a little indoor garden. It would also work well to house an indoor herb array… find a sunny spot in the kitchen to have close at hand.

It also comes in pure black but on this occasion we think the black and brass is a beautiful mix and would perfectly set off the green leaves.

We love indoor planting and we love rattan so this new plant stand from H&M is perfect.

It is a mix of wood and rattan and would make a great urban jungle home in any room.

Bring the outdoors in.

Popular mid century and often of Scandinavian design, raised planter tables or units have a resurgence in popularity indoors or outdoors. 

This wooden unit from La Redoute is a simple design in acacia wood with a large planting area and lower shelf and would look great in a kitchen, hallway or other room filled with house plants. It would also be great and useful if planted with herbs for cooking. 

Also suitable for outdoors it has a lower shelf for extra storage and is a decent height to work at, tending your plants.

Even with a small outdoor space or a balcony you can make the most of the space with the use of the great IKEA range APPLARO of outdoor furniture. 

It’s mix and match with varying combinations of shelving, table, storage and wall systems. 

We love the APPLARO wall panel with drop leaf table – perfect for creating a dining area and hanging planting feature even in a tiny space. 

There is so much in the APPLARO range including lidded storage, chairs, sofa combinations, extendable tables and shelving.
