For a long time, there weren’t many options when it came to pots and planters. These days the possibilities seem endless — they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, heights, colors, materials … heck, some of them even have built-in lamps. Here’s a round up of some of our current favorites.
Cherry_Planter_3.jpgTronk Design Fitzgerald Planter. Available in solid walnut, cherry or maple, this sweet little planter adds an organic touch indoors.


Boskke Cube. We can’t get enough of this revealing cube that shows off the traditional pot. It’s a great modern twist.


Granny had a wicker version of this idea on her porch. The sleek Plant Bos by ferm LIVING has a built-in stand that’s window box size.


Greens Cube Planters by blomus are minimalist boxes are made of stainless steel, adding a gleaming contrast to plant life.


Modernica’s Pot with Stand is a mid-century modern classic that has never gone out of style. The height and warmth brought in by the wooden stands shake up the usual planter game.


Speaking of height, Cane-line’s Skye Big Pot stands at just under three feet high, adding some serious scale to your porch, deck or patio.





These pots add a wonderful glow at night. The Hugo Pots by OFFI serve double-duty as low-voltage lamps you can use outdoors.


Finally, it wouldn’t be a pot and planter roundup without some hangers. The ferm LIVING Plant Hanger comes in several shapes and sizes.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Have you figured out what you’re doing for Mom this year? Here are just a few of our favorites for a wide range of busy modern Moms.


Mom deserves  fashionable tote. Whether she’s out running errands or needs a sturdy bag to tote her laptop to work, the Flowie Lily Tote with black pecan trees and a leather bottom will chic up her outfit.


Planting with Mom is a fun way to spend some time together, and she’ll love having plants like basil, lavender, rosemary or whatever she chooses at her fingertips, artfully held by this modern rectangle planter, the Boskke Cube Triple.


Sometimes Mom just wants to cozy up and relax. Give her some “me time” for herself today with this gorgeous throw from Area, the Theo Blanket in Multi.


I don’t know about your Mom, but mine always had a phone that looked a lot like this wedged between her ear and her shoulder. While the Native Union Pop Bluetooth Phone  doesn’t have the curly phone wire, it will make modern technology feel more familiar.


If your Mom loves to spend time cooking in the kitchen, help her keep her clothes splatter free in a fashionable way with this Triangle Apron from Ferm Living.





Moms love some bling. We love the simple and modern look of this smaller circle within a larger one; you can infer your own symbolism but we think it’s perfect for Mother’s Day. The Inner Circle Necklace by Vanessa Gade Jewelry is made of hand-fabricated sterling silver with a 14K gold overlay.
