One of the things it’s incredibly hard to find a unique take on for interiors is planters – they’re generally uniformly dull or twee; or both, which is disappointing when you go to so much trouble to look for interesting stuff for every other aspect of your space. So my eyes fairly popped when they got a look at these concrete beauties from ail+el.

Handmade in Dublin, you’ll find them at Jam Art Factory where they cost from €25 for the planters, and €5 for the coasters. Each piece is individually hand painted, so there’ll be variety not only in the individual cast (you may see bubbles or “slight imperfections and marks due to the nature of the material and the handmade process​,” say the brand) but also in the pattern.

Suitable for succulents or small plants, you can even buy planted versions from €25. Nice work, dudes.
