One of the best habits I developed about seven years ago was learning to care for houseplants. I find it really grounding taking a few slow moments every day to check on their well-being. I dust off their leaves, remove dead growth, water and repot as I potter around the house. Because it’s important to get out of your own head sometimes, isn’t it?
For modern home gardeners, the look of the pots is just as important. It’s not easy to find elegant planters with a Scandinavian aesthetic. And may I just say, I absolutely love the new stainless steel reversible pots. These tick all the boxes for me!
The Terra planter collection is a collaboration between the Norwegian architecture and design house Snøhetta. This nine-piece series of indoor and outdoor pots come in Georg Jensen’s signature mirror-polished steel and a new material, terracotta.
Inspired by organic forms, the steel planters can be used at either end. Their fluid, tapered shapes allow for greater space for roots at the base and stability in the stems towards the narrow end. I love how the super-reflective steel bounces light off the surface and emphasises the shape of the plant.
A sleek and functional watering can accompanies the collection, inspired by the flow of water. Its strong silhouette looks totally at home as part of a sculptural display when it’s not being used.
Do you recognise the rubber tree? This magnificent plant has been a part of our home for seven years now and is possibly my greatest botanical achievement thus far! He’s even been published in a few interiors books. The bay window is the only part of the house he’s truly happy to be owing to the consistent light he needs to thrive.
The stainless steel watering globe gives a sculptural appeal to the pot and dispenses enough water over a 2-3 day period.
I hope you love this collection as much as I do. Have you found comfort in amongst your houseplants lately?
