Indoor Decorative Plant Stands

It's true that some homeowners can get away with buying a plant and plopping it in its original pot on a windowsill. Houseplants are beautiful in and of themselves, but to add a special touch discerning homeowners are willing to spend a bit extra for indoor decorative plant stands. These stands come in an amazing array of materials, sizes and shapes that can complement any decor.

Wrought Iron
Many plant stands are made of wrought iron. Because they are so malleable, they are easy for a gifted ironmonger to form into all kinds of shapes. Though they look like they're made of filigree or lace, they are surpassingly tough and sturdy enough to support even a heavy plant and its pot. Many have lower shelves on which to place gardening supplies or plants that don't need too much light.

The shapes that wrought iron indoor decorative plant stands can be turned into including troughs with curved legs and curled feet, whimsical shopping carts, modified wheel barrels and bowls and urns on pedestals. Some have wheels that make it easy for them to be moved from one sunny spot in the room to another and indeed are made to look like bicycles or tricycles. Others are fashioned after a child's chair, baskets placed at the top of lamp posts or miniature spiral stairsteps. Others have two or more tiers of wrought iron baskets, while others are sold in sets to be placed together or arranged around a room.

Wrought iron plant stands don't have to come in basic black either. They can be white, red, green, yellow, blue or any other color the homemaker fancies.

Other Types of Stands
Plant stands are also made out of wood and range from stands that are rustic and unfinished to stands made in Sheraton, French Provincial, Mission or other styles with curved legs, lion claw feet, carvings or gate legs. Some come with drawers and lower shelves. Other plant stands are made of metal in the contemporary style while others are simple plexiglas cubes. Some are built like ladders, with room for a plant or two on each rung. Etagere style plant stands to resemble ladders, but they have open shelves instead of rungs.
