The benefits of houseplants are as varied and numerous as the species of plants available. From naturally releasing oxygen into the air, to providing joy for the green thumb in all of us, or simply beautifying living spaces, houseplants make a lovely contribution to any living space.
The advantages to living in a city can be numerous, but a common refrain from city dwellers is “not enough space.” This is certainly true for the urban green thumb. This bamboo stand combines ecology and efficiency to work ideally in small spaces. And the space-saving doesn’t come at the cost of materials. The eco-friendly varnish keeps out mold and insects – two uninvited guests, no matter the size of your space. The six tiers hold up to seven plants (the bottom tier holds two), or you can mix it up by combining plants with framed photos or other objects of art.

Make a statement
Those big plants don’t need to stay on the floor. Large plants can be a beautiful addition to your home. But depending on the layout and windows, getting that much-needed sunlight for your plants can be equally as difficult. This durable, 11-tiered display is rated for plants (and pots) of up to 150 pounds. You can display up to twelve larger plants, or cluster together small groups of two or three in each tier. You’ll have no lack of greenery with this balanced and symmetrical display that makes a great addition to your living room, bedroom, garden, or balcony.
This multipurpose display will have you rearranging regularly just to try out all the different things you can do with it. Who says your plant stand must be just for plants? This nine-tiered stand is perfect for displaying your plants alongside millions of items: books, knickknacks, toys, or collectibles. Its reinforced construction means it’ll stay balanced even as your collection continues to grow. The stand is treated with a high-temperature carbonization that gives the wood surface a transparent coating and keeps it smooth as well as water-resistant.
