Golly Pods by Tend Living and Jason Xavier Lane

No, you haven’t landed on another planet!

These Golly Pods are a new collaboration between Tend Living — my favorite place for modern and stylish plants — and Jason Xavier Lane of Bells & Whistles. They look like space-age creatures, except that they’re really modern sculptural planters and terrariums. These wood prototypes will eventually be cast in ceramic. Aren’t they awesome?

On another exciting note, Britt from Tend Living will be joining us as a monthly columnist, blogging all about modern plants. She’s looking to name her column and if she chooses your name suggestion, you can win one of these:
