Planter Stands

Planter stands are a cool way to bring out the best visuals in your plant displays

This display is in a bank in Waltham, Massachusetts. Normally, this corner is kind of bare. There’s no desk, no file cabinet, nothing to put this lovely flower bowl on, and if you just stuck it on the floor, it would look pretty silly.

So in this case we can bring up the bowl to either waist or eye level by placing it in a symmetrical modern plant stand.

These types of stands come in both short and tall sizes, depending on the situation/area they are going in. The stand itself is important as well, because the minimalist appearance of it (thin and airy; single inch or so diameter legs vs a solid block, for instance) helps draw your attention to the bowl, so that you don’t focus on what it’s sitting on. Pretty basic, yes, but important in design if you want to bring out the best visual impact of the bowl.

The plants used in this planting include neoregelias, pothos plants, and zz plants for height.

These planters and stands are from Architectural Suppliments, in their Earthforms Tier Planter line.
