The Perfect Piece: Plant Stands

Hello Summer! Though we haven't officially welcomed summer this year, it seems to be heating up a bit early in the South. With this hot summer weather, I can't help but think about planting my favorite summer herbs and flowers. Wonderful basil, chives, dill, and Italian oregano are on my list of summer herbs to plant.What better way to display those lovely pots than to adorn your yard, porch, or sun room with a most lovely iron plant stand.

These multi-level racks serve many purposes, the most obvious being excellent storage and display for all of your favorite plants. They work beautifully as functional space for all of your greenhouse necessities. Fill it with baskets to store your gloves, trowels, and and garden line. They complement your outdoor space as well as a rustic indoor space. One might even use two of the demi lune plant stands atop a round table to create a fabulously fashion-forward, yet traditional and classic centerpiece stacked high with plants. These plant stands have a light and airy feel while actually being very sturdy and strong. They add just a bit of space to a room without adding any weight. They have that light summer feel...

The painted corner rack would perfectly fill that wasted space in your sun room. I see it fitting wonderfully in that empty little corner and being filled with books and plants, and little knick-knacks. These marvelous French plant stands are circa 1880. They have a fantastic French simplicity to them while being positively chic. Pile these Perfect Pieces with an eclectic array of mismatched pots, or carefully arrange stacks of books and little gadgets for a little extra living room space. Whether you plan to use one of these French plant stands for plants or as a bookshelf, one thing is for sure, these are the perfect summer pieces.
