Getting ready for summer: Green living products by Ferm Living
Plants have been a source of solace to many during this quarantine, bringing joy, relaxation and even companionship. And with the arrival of summer, many more are looking to indoor gardening and cozy outdoor areas as a way to enjoy the weather at home and turn their homes into a personal sanctuary. Take a look at these selected products by Copenhagen based Ferm Living to greet summer at home:
Rectangular Plant Box : The plant box by Ferm is a masterful work in functionality hiding behind a sleek frame. The design consists of a rectangular plant box atop a thin frame, with the frame and plant box using powder coated sheet metal. The simplicity of the design makes the planter easily suit a range of styles, while a set of accessories for the plant box make it customizable. Pots, dividers, and trays available for the plant box create unlimited options for indoor and outdoor spaces. Use the planter with a tray to display curios or to act as a table next to an armchair, or combine pots and dividers to store accessories or stationery, or to grow multiple plants in a single planter.
Way Rug : The Way series of products are hand woven from recycled PET yarn, combining sustainability with comfort. Available in a brown and black patterned ‘sugar kelp’ and white and black patterned ‘off white’ style, the rugs are a handsome addition both indoors and outdoors. Use it to create a comfy summer reading spot outdoors or a play area for the young ones.
Orb Watering Can : A work of art or a watering can? - you can decide. The orb watering can plays with spherical forms to develop a design that works equally well displayed on a mantle or providing nourishment to plants. Made using powder coated metal, the design consists of a spherical can with a slender elongated spout and a circular handle that continues into the can. The matte black and cashmere colors of the pot further brings out the beauty of the design, and turns it into a piece that is display worthy.
Sekki Pot : The Sekki pot perfectly illustrates that simplicity is indeed the ultimate sophistication. Made using a coarse clay that was widely used in Japanese tea ware, the sekki pot is a modern interpretation of this traditional material. Available in rust and charcoal colors, the earth tones are a nod to the rich history of the material. The pots provide an elegant home for indoor plants, and look even better when paired with the Sekki tableware.
Hourglass pot : The gardening process is an education in patience, and the Hourglass pot embodies this concept. The blackened metal with matte finish lends the hourglass shaped pot a classy look and highlights the colors of the plants. The pot can be used on either side as a raised planter for plants, and looks equally chic both inside the house and out on the porch.
