Poketo plant stands: Industrial style on a small scale

Poketo plant stands
Poketo recently launched its first collection of gardening accessories with an eye toward urban gardening and small-space living. The collection includes two types of pot stands designed by Southern California artists Eric Trine and Danny Simon.

Small cuttings and succulents make a big statement in Trine's three-ring plant holders. The welded steel stands come in two formations: One can be screwed directly into the wall, as shown at right, and the other is a standalone base. Both hold standard 4.25-inch collared pots (not included). The planters come in unpainted steel and white and range from $25 to $40.

No green thumb? The design could be used as a chic receptacle for pens or kitchen utensils while freeing up desk or counter space. Poketo plant stand

Poketo also released Simon's A-frame plant hanger, shown at bottom right. Made of ipe, a South American hardwood, and inspired by midcentury A-frame architecture, the hanging planter features deadstock military cotton strapping. (Translation: The fabric is vintage but has never been used.)

Any standard 4-inch collared pot will fit into the swing. Price: $78.
