Spring is on its merry way and it's time our thoughts turned to our outside spaces..
The days are getting longer, the sun is shining and new shoots are appearing.. Yay, spring is around the corner.
And how better to welcome the new season than with the best of the new season’s modern planters?
The latest crop will liven up your home, garden or conservatory, and make a chic new abode for your favourite foliage. Alternatively fill with some fresh greenery. Palms, Cheese plants, Calatheas or string of pearl and other succulents will keep you at the top of the horticultural style tree.
IN THE FRAME
French Connection are beckoning in spring with these elegant matt black cylindrical planters, which are slotted into sturdy yet slimline frames. At varying widths and heights, the duo suit different sized plants and look twice as good paired together.
This curvaceous terracotta planter by Serax at A New Tribe sits atop a base that keeps it upright with its otherwise totally rounded bottom. Its natural, earthy colour is bang on trend and its patternless surface will sit well in neutral schemes or busier, more colourful spaces – indoor or out. It could be pimped up at a later date too, with a lick of your favourite paint.
Made from brass, this generously sized planter is given a rustic edge with a textured surface in the style of a woven basket for a look that’s earthy – and elegant. Find them at Audenza.
TAKE A STAND
At 45cm and 60cm tall, these oversized, white metal planters from Nisi Living are are a great option if you want to make a feature of your foliage. Made from steel and powder coated in white, they’re durable enough for outdoor use, but would also look great indoors if you’ve got a space big enough to take them.
POT OF GOLD
Just landed at Marks and Spencer Home, these gold finish metal planters are elevated onto super-sleek legs for a minimalist and clean design, with a touch of glamour. Available in small, medium and large, pot your plants in these and give your greenery a gilded edge.
