BML: Architectural Planter

For those of you who have been wondering what that planter on the lower right side of my blog is, the answer is here. They are designed and manufactured by BML, an online store ran by my friend Robert and his wife Yin in Southern California.

One of its great feature is a hidden drip tray underneath of the planter. ‘We never liked looking at drip trays sticking out of the bottom of a planter, showing you all of the dirty water and muck. The concealed drip tray holds just the right amount of water you should be using to properly hydrate your plants.’

The planter is surprisingly light weight and also perfectly fits up to a 5 gallon planter container. I can swap it in and out as well as planting directly into it.

The current model, BML-1 is available to purchase directly from their website which comes with a range of 7 colors.

Inspiration: Laplace & Co.

The Paris based architecture and design firm,  Laplace & Co. showcases stunning places filled with super high end mid century goodies. I spotted many things such as the ceramic wall mural by Georges Jouve, two classic Finn Juhl 45 Chairs, a Pierre Jeanneret bench, a Charlotte Perriand Refolo bench and it goes on and on!

I am usually not a big fan of painting walls in color but this mustard wall is something I can see myself doing in the future. That, along with the way he applied the muted colors with a slight hot pink modernizes the whole room.

Other mid century classics, the Prouvé potence lamp designed by Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand for Vitra in the 50′s are in the the first above photo. Below features a George Nakashima coffee table, a Hans Wegner Shell Chair in the middle, a Hans Wegner’s desk, and a Pierre Jeanneret chair at the bottom.
