It’s one of our favorite plant styling ideas: the plantshelfie. The plantshelfie is a real Urban Jungle Bloggers classic and has been the monthly topic not once, but even twice before. Bloggers from all over the world joined in and styled their shelfie with plants in their own specific way. From a simple ledge, to a String shelfie or a bookcase: the fun of a nice plantshelfie lays in the unlimited styling opportunities. Personal photos, travel souvenirs, art, trinkets, sculptures, gems, decor objects… and at least one plant.
Recently we were approached by Tolhuijs Design because they wanted to introduce us to their latest design: the FENCY. Before watching into the details, we thought: plantshelfie! But the FENCY is more than just a shelf system: it is a design object with a story: all materials from the grid structure and the wooden shelves are so called: waste upgrading. The grid structure is made of sturdy festival fences. They are upcycled: cleaned, stripped, cut into the right dimensions, polished and powder coated in white, black or a beautiful mint green Urban Jungle Bloggers colour. All of this work isn’t done by regular carpenters but by people in prisons and social work places. Working helps to give these people a purpose and responsibility in their daily lives which contributes to a better society. FENCY is social responsible!
The wooden shelves of the FENCY are made from pressed wooden pallets and can be attached to the grid with 2 simple hooks. These allow you to place them exactly where you like them: on top, a bit more to the left or to the right. Very versatile and so much fun to play around with! And if your plants (or your collection of props) grow bigger, simply adjust the position of the shelves.
Another cool idea would be to use parts of the FENCY as a trellis for crawling or climbing plants, like Devil’s ivy (pothos), Hedera (ivy), and Passiflora.
The FENCY comes in different shapes and sizes: it is a cool wall structure to organize kitchen utensils or to keep your work tools at hand in the home office. Use it to display your favorite clothes in your bedroom or artwork in the living room. We couldn’t help ourselves and turned it into a plant display and included our Urban Jungle book:
Single, double, triple or quatro shelves from pressed wooden pallets can be used to display a group or one singular plant, like the Aloë below:
