Greenery as a Coffee Table or Dining Table Centerpiece
Add some greenery as a coffee table or dining table centerpiece. Claire Bishop, Senior Houseplant Buyer at Dobbies Garden Centres, suggests grouping together Succulents or small plants to create a mini jungle you can personalize to suit your style. Succulents such as the Echeveria and Euphorbia require little watering, meaning they’re great for those looking for some low-maintenance greenery to brighten up their living space. Potted plants like Sansevieria and Haworthia are also great for styling in smaller spaces and can be arranged on a side table to bring a pop of greenery to your living and dining room interior.
Wall Greening with Plants – Vertical Planting System for Indoor and Outdoor Spaces
The Mobilane LivePanel Pack from Greenbop is a particularly narrow vertical planting system for decorating indoor and outdoor walls with plants. The practical and modern modular system is available in four standard sizes, which can be combined with each other as desired. You can plant this planting system according to your own design ideas, taking into account the location. This plant wall from the Dutch manufacturer Mobilane offers numerous possibilities for greening small to large walls, for a greener living and dining room environment.
The system is based on removable and exchangeable plant cassettes, into which the plants and soil are planted. The cassettes are inserted into horizontal profile rails. The rails are mounted on the wall and also serve as a water reservoir from which the plant roots absorb the water through capillary action.
