Designer Advice:

What we find particularly interesting about retro style is that it’s more generic than other aesthetics. Since it encompasses a variety of trends from the 50s to the 80s, there’s really no wrong way to go about it. For instance, despite its unique design, this stylish plant stand looks equally fabulous in a traditional, contemporary, Bohemian, and glam-inspired space.

All-round functionality and classic appeal make this retro-inspired set an easy winner. Crafted from pine wood, these plant stands offer a total of nine square shelves. Durability-wise, they’re resistant to water, stains, heat, warping, cracking, and more—perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.

Designer Advice:

This set keeps it simple with open shelving and a splayed frame. What’s quite noticeable, though, is the varying heights that bring visual interest and dimension to the space. There’s also the possibility of using them separately throughout the home and garden if that suits you better. While they’re great for housing potted plants, they also pull double-duty as a display shelf for your favorite decor items.

Prefer colorful accent pieces over neutral ones? If yes, this one's for you. Indeed, retro color palettes are varied enough to range from neutral to vivid to faded. For this plant stand, we highly recommend pairing it with other cheery colors for a groovy ‘70s interior. Some examples are an orange velvet sofa, a yellow accent wall, or perhaps a red patterned rug.

Not sure what types of planters go well with this striking plant stand? For starters, white is the way to go if you want to play it safe and shine full focus on the green foliage and plant stand itself. For a bolder approach, we suggest playful patterned pots, such as a hammered one, a design with Aztec motifs, or a textured flowerpot for added personality.
