In addition to its being water resistant, naturally antibacterial, sustainable, and recyclable, cork can be turned into all sorts of things. Designer Melanie Abrantes hand turns it on a lathe and pairs it with leather to make pots and hanging planters. Abrantes’ Modern Cork Planters come in three sizes; the small are 5 inches tall, plants not included. They’re shellacked on the inside and have a beeswax finish on the outside. We absolutely love that special textural look of the planters – it’s so traditional yet very trendy and modern, and the material is very eco-friendly, which is important both for plants and people.
