Indoor planters and plant pots have firmly rooted themselves as a significant interiors trend for next year. This was evident after visiting London Design Fair and Design Junction exhibitions yesterday. Everywhere I turned, there was greenery housed in the coolest plant pots and holders. Because plants can help reduce stress, The London Design Fair identified ‘Biophilia’ as one of the growing urban trends. I picked out my favourite indoor planters to tempt your green fingers and give your urban retreats a welcome treat!

Ann Kristin Einarsen: Part of the 100% Norway showcase was Ann Kristin Einarsen. From a wood crafting background, Ann is now a ceramic designer exploring stoneware. She creates sculptures, installations and functional pieces from her studio located in Oslo. Two planters from Ann include Sip, which is in two parts and self-waters by allowing plants to ‘sip’ the water. Rolla is a two-tone planter reminiscent of the Plus salt and pepper grinders by Muuto.

Nir Meiri Studio: The Babilus collection by Nir Meiri features vessels made from layers of bamboo, wood (chipboard), glass and Corian (which appears as though it were stone). The designs have been inspired by the architecture of ancient cities, temples and altars, with an ancient skyline in mind. The vase shape is ideal for a single sprig, and the pot shape can be used for a small plant or to hold a bouquet.

Before Breakfast: This East London based graphic led design studio owned by Nicki Shen has created these useful boxy canvas holders. You can use them to store odds and ends lying around or as a planter. I love the idea of using these for plants because it’s something different from the usual containers. These are made from the recycled canvas by craftspeople in Yokohama in Japan. Bag yourself a few of these because they are both impressive and convenient.

Indoor Planters Spotted at Design Junction
Atelier 2+: Spotted on the Design House Stockholm was this amazing Greenhouse designed by Atelier 2+ who are Worapong Manupipatpong and Ada Chirakranont. It’s the perfect size to place in your home if you want to tend to a mini garden. What a fantastic idea for urban apartments with no direct access to a garden. Design House Stockholm was founded in 1992 by Anders Färdig and is one of the leading brands in Scandinavian Design.

Caroline Wetterling: Also on the Design House Stockholm stand was the Grow Greenhouse for small flowers or nurturing plants. The glass is in two parts with the bottom holding the soil and the baby plant. The top has a spout so can also be used as a little watering can. Created using hand-made glass, it works along the lines as a tiny greenhouse.
