This week we have been out and about in Cologne, Germany for one of Europe’s biggest interior fair IMM. Before heading to Maison & Objet this weekend, we wanted to share some of our favourite our personal Urban Jungle Bloggers’ favorites from Cologne with you. Here we go!
Top image: the brand new Flower Pot Stand by Design House Stockholm Sara Szyber. And below their Greenhouse that we blogged about last year (here!) filled with green goodness:
Also from Design House Stockholm: the Grow GreenHouse glass terraria designed by Caroline Wetterling:More glass and plant cuttings in this glass propagation setup in Vitra‘s gorgeous booth at IMM Cologne. Mark out words: propagating plants in clear glass and water will be THE thing to do this spring!Plants and botanicals are not only represented in physical form, also through textile patterns, like here on this large couch by Philipp Mainzer + Farah Ebrahimi for e15:And as we showed you before in the article about the wallpaper jungle of Deutsches Tapeten Institut, botanical patterns on wallpaper for a feature wall are still a hot topic. Seen here at Bolia (left) and Brigitte Frickemeier:
Vitra used many bigger plants in their booth interiors, like the ZZ plant on the left and stunning Calathea in the front /// Interesting hanging bowls by Gloster carrying impressive Boston ferns:
More from the stand of Vitra with lush and dessert plants against a muted green/teal/grey wall: A roof with herbs and a vertical garden integrated in the modular wall shelving by System 180:
And if you’re still hesitant to have more plants in your home or kitchen: big tropical Monstera deliciosa or palm leaves also add a nice touch of greenery. Seen here in the kitchen of Brigitte Frickemeier:
Conmoto simulated an outdoor ambiance to show off their outdoor furniture by adding houseplants in their setup:
We are in love with the beautiful Edge pots that Danish brand Skagerak created in collaboration with Copenhagen-based Stilleben. Don’t they look great with the brand new brass plates? The Spira greenhouse is a perfect fit to highlight one individual plant:
This year IMM Cologne invited two well-known bloggers to the fair to design their own style booths: Holly Becker from decor8 and Desiree Groenendal from Vosgesparis. Our book was displayed in Holly’s booth (that looked lovely, see here!) and we felt totally #immspired by Desiree’s setup with dozens of lush greens, terracotta pots and matching sofas. A true Urban Jungle Bloggers paradise, including the beautiful airplant jellyfish by Carolijn Slottje:
Interesting watering cans spotted on the stand of Alias /// Four minimal shelves holding four Muehlenbeckia plants add color and texture to this seating area with velvet chairs by WOUD.
Serax loves plants, and we love Serax for decorating wild with plants, plants, plants:A lush summer evening area by Paola Navone for Serax /// Plants and herbs in the kitchen, seen at Brigitte Frickemeier:
Another corner with statement plants by Vitra: several Ficus elastica complement the timeless Vitra design so well /// A happy Ficus lyrata in the booth of Danish design brand WOUD:New raw concrete pots with a glossy Klein blue (!) inside from the capsule collection of Soulland x Bolia and lots of lush and tropical plants (like the palm tree and Strelitzia) in their stand:
A mint coloured plant vessel designed by Juliette Warmenhoven, part of Frame’s Living Kitchenlab booth with Dutch designers showcasing DIY cooking. It is supposed to irrigate your plant with minimal effort:
Another favorite are the Blumenampel by Atelier Haußmann designed by Zascho Petkow that become true eye cathers in any interior. They are made from matt black steel tubes with a PVC vase and thick rope.
Plantshelfie galore at Pekodom creative living. They clearly went all the way with dozens of individual planted cacti and succulents to highlight their different shelf solutions /// Vertical moss gardens by styleGREEN, 100% nature 0% care. For lazy Urban Jungle Bloggers, or anyone who likes a piece of green (and living!) art on their wall: More plant shelves and metal wire houses to show off individual plants by Pekodom creative living:
Stay tuned for more plant trends that we hope to spot at Maison & Objet in Paris this weekend!
