We first directed you to design Christmas gifts. In short, decorative gifts that we would all like to receive. But what if, for a change, we turned to green gifts? From the classic cachepot to the sculptural vase to the most designer planter of the moment, for Christmas, we don’t skimp on style when it comes to highlighting our green plants. Plants invite themselves inside to bring a touch of freshness and soften the most urban lives, sometimes even to detoxify the atmosphere, with the famous depolluting plants. To showcase seasonal flowers and plants, we use hanging rattan pots, planters on chromed metal legs, XXL tubs with Scandinavian inspiration, pedestals, shelves designed especially for plants, precious tools such as a vintage mister or a golden watering can, and even stackable vases: very practical, by the way. Nowadays, green plants can be found everywhere, in a small studio as well as in the largest home. Thanks to a pretty little brass greenhouse in the living room, or a connected vegetable garden in the kitchen, we are putting our interior in the green. And to take perfect care of your plants, we equip ourselves with a beautiful watering can and colored tools.

The wooden vase holder
Pigeon towers are stone constructions typical of rural landscapes, dating back to medieval times, when feudal regimes used pigeon breeding for various purposes related to agriculture and hunting. The Apulian countryside, in particular, hides many of these architectural jewels. These constructions are generally characterized by a cylindrical shape, shaped by ashlars arranged in a staggered pattern so as to create numerous niches in which the pigeons nest. Some of these ashlars protrude further, creating a sort of helical ladder useful for inspecting the nests. The Colombaia wooden vase holder, designed by Saverio Fasulo for Apulia Design, is inspired in its shape by these ancient constructions, whose chessboard wall fittings and spiral staircase he reproposes. In this case, however, nature is not outside, like the countryside around the old towers, but inside, where the pots with the plants can be placed.
The polyethylene vase
Eve is a polyethylene vase with soft lines by the trio of designers Busetti Garuti Redaelli for B Line. From a design point of view, its main characteristic is that it rests on a round base, but rising in height it takes the shape of a rounded triangle. In fact, the vase was born as the rib of Adam’s table, from the same company, and represents his perfectly reversed image. Although they are two design objects designed to live separately, the table and the vase thus become complementary and excellent to combine, since they are inspired by the same design idea. The polyethylene used to make the Eve is rotationally molded, a technique that allows it to be used both indoors and outdoors. The vase is available in two heights: 71 cm and 101 cm.
The watering can
A watering can is mainly used in gardening, for manual watering of plants or seedlings, but its ability to carry liquid and pour it accurately makes it a useful object in other contexts : construction, cement works. Watering Pot is a watering can created by the Greek designer Aristotelis Barakos for the American company Valsfer. It is a functional and elegant ceramic container from Jingdezhen: China which, when not used as a watering can, is perfect as a flower vase.
The Diamond of Garden Glory collection includes garden accessories whose shape is reminiscent of the facets of precious stones. The Diamond Garden Spade shovel has a polished brass blade. For the handle, on the other hand, compression molded plastic was preferred because it guarantees a longer life span than wood and is warmer to the touch than steel. The plastic watering can, blown in the shape of a diamond, becomes the jewel of any garden. It holds up to 8 liters of water and is available in the same colors as the hoses in the same collection.
