Planters are not the first things we think of when we're decorating a room. However, the wrong container for that ficus can blow the look we strove so hard to complete. Here's a loverly selection of stylish and DIYable planters that would be at home in an modern or MCM environment.
First up is the Case Study Ceramic Cylinder Planter from Modernica, pictured above. At $189, it isn't cheap, but luckily for any woodworker out there, with the right pot, it's totally DIYable.
Also totally DIYable...with the correct insert are 'trough' planters. In this case, if I were replicating our first entry, I'd actually start with the insert and design the structure around it. Usually finding the right size insert is the hardest part.
This teak offering from Amsterdam Modern is similar, but, interestingly, has a different look, thanks to the construction of its legs.
Heading outside, here's a really easy modern planter bench. Instead of having four legs, it rests on two large planters. You can find the entire tutorial on Sunset.
If you know a thing or two about bricks and laying them, this cinder block wall planter is definitely the way to go.
