Hang 10: the Circle planters from Potted
Designers Annette Goliti Gutierrez and Mary Gray said the containers were inspired by -- get this -- the hanging ceramic ashtrays of the 1960s. "We thought, what if we made a hanging planter like that?" Gutierrez said. "Cool hanging planters are very hard to come by."
Gutierrez and Gray designed the Circles so you can put a 4-inch nursery pot in them. Each measures 12 inches in diameter and comes with an 18-inch stainless steel cord, which can be removed if you want the piece as tabletop decor. DIYers could drill a drainage hole in the bottom and plant directly into the container.
It's available in two colors -- Orange You Glad and White Cloud -- each $75 at the store, 3158 Los Feliz Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 665-3801.
