A Clever Parisian Balcony Planter Straddles a Railing

April 29, 2013

Last summer when Francesca spotted this ingenious Parisian balcony planter than hangs over a rail, she had to report (sadly) that it was only for sale in Europe. What a difference a year makes.

The French shop Merci, which carries the Saddlebag Pot, is now selling its products online–and ships overseas, including to US destinations.

 

Above: The Saddlebag Pot from French design team AZ & Mut has a deep groove to enable it to straddle a balcony railing. It’s 69€ from Merci.

Above: The Saddlebag, dubbed Le Pot Cavalier by its creators, measures 26 centimeters high and has a diameter of 26 centimeters, as well. Photograph via AZ & Mut.

For Francesca’s assessment of the planter’s virtues, see An Ingenious Parisian Balcony Planter.
