Since Earth Day is every day for us, we wanted to extend the celebration with a little roundup to honor our planet. With our outdoor adventures significantly reduced, we’ve been working with a lot of indoor plants. Keeping fresh-cut tulips alive with a penny, reorganizing dried bouquets, growing herb gardens inside – you name it, we’re trying it. Succulents, buds we’ve picked on a walk, and everything in between deserves a vessel that’s a worthy companion.
If you’re a new plant parent or have been around the gardening block, we wanted to share our favorite pots and vases for every type of green thumb.
Let’s dive in
For the multi-tasker: Ferm Living Plant Box
What can’t she do! With tons of modular add ons, one season it can be your indoor window box, the next it can be your bathroom organizer. For those ambitious enough to desire an indoor garden, this powder-coated steel planter hailing from Copenhagen is a no-brainer.
For the textile lover: Thayer Basket
Made in Rhode Island and designed in Boston by our friend Meredith Thayer, these baskets are an organizational savior. All Thayer Baskets are handcrafted and come in a variety of sizes, colors, and weaves. If you’re looking to enter the basket planter trend, look no further.
For the Aalto fan: Riihitie Planter
A design by Aina Aalto for the Aalto family home in 1937, this handmade piece made by Artek is an organic shape that will fit into any plant family.
For the bud vase graduate: Ikebana Vase
This vase designed by Jaime Hayon was named after the Japanese word for the art of arranging flowers. The Ikebana collection takes the principle behind a bud vase and multiplies it by separating many stems for display.
For the curator of elegance: Echasse Vase
Oh, Echasse! The elegance of a traditional vase is enhanced by delicate brass legs and inspiration from laboratory test tubes. The designer Theresa Rand also wanted to design a vase that could work on both the table and the floor.
For the Delft Collector: Tulip Vase
Inspired by the Netherlands’ famed flower, this Tulip Vase by Dutch brand Klevering is another multi-bud option for long stems you can’t wait to show off.
For the sculptural florist: Ridge Vase
For fans of sculptural pieces, the Ridge Vase by Muuto draws its inspiration from architecture, specifically a doorway in Paris that the designers (Studio Kaksikko) stumbled upon during their travels.
