It’s patio season! Spruce up your spread with a new planter or two. They’re simply perfect for holding a special variety or creating an interesting vignette, even on a tiny balcony! Check out ten of our current favorites below.

Brass Planter- Schoolhouse Electric

This sleek brass planter from Schoolhouse Electric would suit so many design styles. We love it’s simple, smooth texture, and imagine it will weather beautifully. Paired with a dark green plant, this will truly pop.

Blue and White Hexagonal  Planter- Williams Sonoma

Bring a little classic style into play with this porcelain piece! We love the idea of combining this chinoiserie-inspired design with a variety of other textures for a bohemian, collected look.

Tuscan Pedestal Planter- Pottery Barn

It’s classic, east-coast garden style at it’s finest. Bring a hint of weathering to your patio with this pedestal planter! We love the distressed paint. We imagine it with white flowers, creating a gorgeous monochromatic look.

Kronos 28″ Planter- CB2

How cool is this stilted planter! It’s like a super-sleek window box. You can use a ton of different plants for a mini-garden effect. Also how cool would this be on a balcony?

Indio Planter- Zuo Modern

This groovy ceramic planter brings a hint of the cali desert to your patio! We love the graphic pattern rendered in neutrals– it’s bold, but not too bold. It feels natural, bohemian, and handmade.

Howell Tall Planter- Crate and Barrel

Add some height to your patio! We like the smooth curves of this simple piece, and how the texture creates a subtle pattern. And it’ll go with pretty much everything. Call it a win-win.

Iris Planter+ Chevron Stand- West Elm

If you’d rather purchase small plants than break the bank on huge ones, this is the planter for you! Its tiered levels will add height and visual weight, even to a smaller pot. Plus, we like how it fits just-right into a corner.

Dundee Floor Planter- Crate and Barrel

Another elevated entry in this list, this matte black planter feels elegant and minimalist. The come in varied heights, too, perfect for creating a stylish vignette on your patio or balcony!

Spun Metal Standing Planter- West Elm

For the midcentury mod lovers of the world, this planter feels perfectly retro without veering into kitschy. We love its curved shape that brings some space-age style to your garden!

Zen White Planter- CB2

How cool is the texture on this big planter? We are so into the natural clay finish and the mesmerizing linework. It feels like it could be an antique, but still looks super-fresh.
