The Scout: Pad Outdoor's groovy indoor-outdoor planters take midcentury design to new heights
Modernist devotees who can spot a Gregory Ain house from the curb and outfit their own patios with Architectural Pottery planters now have a stylish new resource for indoor-outdoor containers.
Pad Outdoor's Jet Age-style cachepots are mix-and-match modules locally made in spun aluminum that offers lightweight durability. Prices, starting at $150, are often one-half the cost of reissued midcentury designs in ceramic. The 16-inch diameter pots are ideal for low-water indoor plants, and drainage holes can be easily drilled for outdoor use.
Available in six standard powder-coated colors, they come in two "skirted" shapes (the "half-skirt" model, is shown here) that can sit on the ground or be elevated on 15- and 22-inch black or white steel stands, sold separately from $34.
