Pull Up a Planter, Have a Seat
June 27, 2012 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Swedish designer, Louise Hederström, brings nature to the city with her multipurpose planter and garden seating inspired by a willow tree.
Willow, which would be suitable indoors or outdoors, has one large opening at the top with containers that “branch” out from the sides of its compact main base or “trunk.”
Tall plants can shoot upwards from the top, suggests the designer, while vines and creepers grown in the side containers can trail down to the floor. Fill all three pots or turn the planter into seating with the addition of a oiled oak or richly-hued birch disc.
