Hanging Around the Home
Containers—whether they’re made of plastic, terracotta or glazed pottery—have become a staple in indoor and outdoor home décor. Just take a look at any home interior design in magazines, blogs and on television, and you’ll find plants in some kind of container, and more often than not, they’ll be hanging from the ceiling, mounted to the walls or suspended in some other way. When it comes to outdoors, the options expand even more with rail-mounted planters for decks and designs for mounting on outer walls and fences. Here are just some of the new introductions in this category.
Big Grass Living
The Terra Fina collection from Big Grass Living ticks all the trending boxes of smaller, hangable and tabletop hand-crafted terra cotta for succulents, orchids and other small tropicals. The line has five new style additions, including Crescent, the moon-shaped hanging planter pictured.
“Customer demand for our Terra Fina planters has never been greater,” says John Hanesworth, co-founder and co-owner of Big Grass Living. “Our experience tells us that as more people adopt planting as a hobby, the planter is not an afterthought, its style and quality has become as important as the plant itself.”
These are two hanging pot options in the 2021 lineup for Ceramo Company:
• The new Hanging Bucket Pot, which is packed as a three-piece set with 10-in., 8.5-in. and 6.5-in. diameters. This shape is deeper than typical for a hanging pot, which allows for it to be used with a wider range of plants, especially deeper-rooted flowers. These pots have a drainage hole and they’re shipped with a removable rubber plug.
• The hanging bowl is offered as a 12-in. diameter planter in eight bright colors, including the Tomato Red and Lake Blue shown in the photo. These pots ship with durable, powder-coated hooks and chains, and are sturdy enough for three-season outdoor use in all climates. They also include a plug for the drainage hole.
