10 Easy Pieces: Wooden Plant Pedestals

March 26, 2019

If you’ve reached the point of your houseplant collection where pots just sort of mush together in an expanding blob on the floor, might we suggest introducing levels? A few strategically placed pedestals can add dimension to your blob, give each plant more space to grow, and boost up the light-loving varieties toward the windows in a room. Here are our favorite plant pedestals in wood.

Designed by Pete Oyler for Areaware, Plant Pedestals in beech wood are made of lap joinery; \$50 for a set of two (tall and short) pedestals at Areaware.
