Potting Pleasures

At Anthropologie, we are creating a veritable landscape of inspiration in our stores this spring, owing much of its allure to the incredible assortment of garden product we're receiving this season. As someone who specializes in Anthropologie housewares, I am continuously excited and dazzled by the gorgeous creations we receive as part of our shipments. Any of my fellow coworkers who have witnessed me in the stock room will tell you that it doesn't take long before I gasp giddily at the discovery of a new home product. This season, I'm particularly taken by the garden accessories: the flower pots and urns and plant stands. I've selected a few of my favourites below. Next time you're in, please have a look.

Although they are brand new, these crackle-glazed flower pots look as if they've been part of the landscape for ages. They look even better when they're overflowing with herbs, ivy or moss. From left to right: $8, $18, $10.

The 'Scallops & Speckles' glazed ceramic flower pot may look diminutive in this photo but its 19-inch diameter and 11-inch height make it perfect for a bit lot of pansies or fancy-leafed begonias on the patio. My inclination would be to use it indoors for a ficus or an azalea: $88
This is my all-time favourite plant-stand. A pair of stork legs rising up to a summit of feathers to hold a flower pot of your choice. I would love it indoors or outdoors. Made of iron with a rust-like aged patina: $78
Part of the same wild family, obviously, this pot stand with its alligator feet gives any vessel it holds a Tim-Burton like spirit of its own. Iron with rusted patina: $78
About to scurry away, the "Fossilized Pot" (13-inches in diameter) is the perfect fit: $48
I'm planning on buying both this pot and the pot below for use indoors. I love the spicy tones and the linear designs: Secret Parrot Pot $78
Subtle relief indicates the outlines of tropical birds amid the foliage: Secret Dragonfly Pot $78
Part of the same collection of aged herb pots, shown above, this blue one would add a pop of colour: Excavated Pot, Small $8.
