A replica of a wire Victorian plant stand celebrates indoor gardening’s golden age. This plant stand, with its rectangular shape, fits neatly along a window, allowing plants to get maximum light without occupying nearby tables. The wire design allows air flow to plants, which helps maintain leaf health.

For an indoor hanging garden, Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with WAKE + LOOM Design used succulents because they don't require a lot of water and are long-lasting.

Sometimes a used indoor bar cart only requires painting to make it outdoor-ready.
