For a good two years or more now we’ve seen the rise and rise of the humble indoor plant in Australian interiors. We’re seeing so much lush greenery in the homes we visit and feature, and whilst we’re not usually a fan of transient ‘trends’, this is one we really get behind.
Just a few carefully placed plants can transform a space – in fact we firmly believe that there is no interior which doesn’t benefit from a dose of lush, healthy foliage. It’s one of the cheapest and easiest ways to inject life into any interior, and to soften the edges of an otherwise sparse or uninspiring space, either at work or at home.
HOWEVER, whilst sourcing a gorgeous plant is a relatively straightforward task… finding an equally handsome plant pot can be far more challenging. Where are all the nice planters!? Not at Bunnings, unfortunately (we did check).
Instead, we’ve rounded up eight of the nicest pots we could find at various local retailers, and from a handful of talented local makers. Our top picks for plant pot perfection include a browse at Looseleaf in Collingwood, or Pop and Scott in Northcote, or Mr Kitly in Brunswick (who stock beautiful handcrafted pots by Daylesford ceramicist Bridget Bodenham, amongst others). Oh, and we even found a couple of cheap and cheerful options at IKEA!
