This elegant planter is modern and minimalist but looks great with almost any décor. It’s perfect with my Mission-style furnishings. I keep it on a table in my front window. The black metal stand is gracefully curved and very sturdy and the bowl is white with subtle speckles, giving it a very finished – and expensive – look.The base comes with a circular hook for and a black base (with rubberized bottom so it won’t slip) if you want it to stand on its own. You simply screw in the hook or the base. It’s quite clever and you can switch how you use it any time you want.There’s no drainage hole in the pot, nor would I want one since it’s on wood furniture. To make sure my plant succulents aren’t overwatered, I merely put about half an inch of gravel beneath the potting soil before adding the greenery. I’m using succulents since my cats won’t bother them, but it will hold any sort of small plant you want. You could also use artificial plants or fill it with candy if you wanted.I love that the bowl can be tilted in the holder in any direction. This is simply gorgeous and I highly recommend it. It would make a great gift, too.
