Looking for a way to spruce up your porch with flowers, or to add interest to your garden? How about a special something for a new houseplant? Here are two dozen of the prettiest planters and pots to choose from.

Mod Planters and Pots

  1. You can choose the height, and pick from delicious shades of orange or blue for a statement vessel at your front door.
  2. Six bright colors, two shapes, and a base let you customize your planter as you see fit.
  3. Reimagined soup cans always feel a bit Warhol-inspired, and these come in a fun minty color.
  4. A mid-century design classic! Also available in black.
  5. Faceted pots keep your plants on trend.
  6. Metal legs make these stands appear dainty, while still firmly supporting and elevating your plants.
  7. A vivid shot of blue for your windowsill, or as a commanding centerpiece.
  8. Interesting dip-dye effect.
  9. Also available in black, these create a nice focal point out of three plants.

  1. A graceful shape sets this one apart from the rest.
  2. For formal gardens. Boxwood is the perfect choice for planting in these.
  3. The simple geometry and small scale allow these to rest perfectly behind furniture on porches or patios.
  4. Similar to the footed pedestal of #10, but more modern.
  5. A lovely shade of blue with a nicely rounded bottom.
  6. Shiny and luxe!
  7. Simple, large, and very affordable.

  1. That latticework is gorgeous, though I imagine you need a moss or coconut liner for this one.
  2. Faux tree stumps!
  3. Choose a warm or cool metallic finish for a touch of glam.
  4. A great pattern, without feeling overwhelming or overdesigned.
  5. Small, and reminiscent of Chinoiserie but abstracted.
  6. This one appears aged to perfection.
  7. Wood is always a nice choice in the garden because it brings in more natural texture.
  8. An aged zinc barrel would work nicely in a range of gardens from casual to more formal.

Which is your favorite? Do you go more for mod, simple, or textured options?
