Flowerbox by FlowerBox
A bit of nature indoors can do wondrous things, including keeping you grounded when you’d rather be outside. FlowerBox’s aim is to bring interior greenery to a new plain: the vertical. Growing vegetation straight out into the room, the label’s ceramic easy-care planters are perfect for those with less-than-green fingers—only requiring watering every 1-2 weeks, due to their special moss, and they are simple to take down, making the infrequent watering easier still. Objects this full of life not only combine art and nature, but add a playful element to any plain old wall.

I may add, also cat proof!

Eiffel Wall Lamp by COCO&CO EDITION, 219 eur
Back when minimalism was new on the scene, less is more was a radical statement. It’s an aspiration that still applies, but today’s reduced aesthetics are all grown-up and have a few new demands to match. Bourg-en-Bresse-based label COCO&CO EDITION puts a French touch on stylistic reduction, an approach the Eiffel Wall Lamp exemplifies with every sculptural line. Easily adjusted for hanging height by simply feeding the cable through the 180º pivoting rod, the epoxy-painted steel Eiffel is produced within 50 kilometres of the label’s office to uphold the most important of all new minimalism’s tenets: minimal environmental impact.
