artist spotlight / ivy muse

I was pinning away a few nights ago when I stumbled onto a pin that made my interior-design-and-plant-loving jaw drop. I clicked and was sucked into a rabbit hole of inspiration that generally happens while on Pinterest, and I couldn't wait to share with you (because I'm sure your plants crying out for beautiful plant stands).

Ivy Muse is a collaboration between two Australian designers, Jacqui Vidal and Alana Langan, that launched in the spring of 2014. The ladies of Ivy Muse are brilliant, minimalist designers that create gorgeous plant stands that could be sculptural works of art on their own. How great is their product styling, too?

I was slightly devastated to find out that their plant stands only ship within Australia, because I really have my eye on the Classic stand in champagne, above. They are functional, beautiful, and relatively affordable in comparison to other minimal and/or mid-century plant stands.

If anyone is making a trip down unda' and doesn't mind lugging back an oversized plant stand for yours truly, please let me know :)

In the meantime, I'll just stare longingly at these beautiful plant stands like the eye candy that they are.

Do you use plant stands at home? If so, do you have a favorite style? Here a few favorites of mine (that all seem so insufficient and ugly in comparison to these beauties above)...

Case Study Ceramic Planter + Wood Stand, $149-189

DWR Bullet Planter, $155-165

Kronos Planter, $49.99

Ferm Living Plant Stand, $36 (approx. USD conversion from Euro)
