Scientists, doctors, naturalists and pretty much everyone else agrees that plants in your home and office are a good thing. Not only do they add visual appeal, but they make a space feel cozy and natural. Not to mention, there’s that thing about cleaning up the air. Thanks, plants. But, it’s often difficult to find enough space to display plants in an appealing way so the designers of BloomingTables decided to do something about it with a double-duty table and plant stand that is the very essence of green design.

BloomingTables offer a sleek, modern design that fits into any home, office or home office space. Sized at 30” x 33” x 10.5”, the table fits under a window sill, behind the couch, in a hallway or next to your desk. The contemporary white steel legs cradle the white planting tub. Inside is a waterproof liner that protects the planter and the floor below.

BloomingTables may be compact, but they are multi-functional. Simply line the tub with gravel and activated charcoal to absorb water and keep it from overflowing. Then add your soil and choice of air-filtering plants.

Pillars with suction cups on the top hold an easy-to-remove 6mm tempered-glass shelf that serves as a tabletop. The see-through design allows you to enjoy your plants while offering kid and pet protection. When it’s time to water your plants, remove the glass from the UV-resistant suction cups, water and replace the glass when you’re done.

Most plants need light so the BloomingTables were designed to be placed near a window, but if that’s not your ideal location you can place a lamp with an incandescent bulb on or near the tabletop to replace some of the natural light.

BloomingTables are easy to set up and use. You can make your own plant selections so each one looks different. The design is ideal for plant lovers that just don’t have the window sill or counter space for the plants they love. It brings color and live decor to even the smallest urban apartment without large pots of soil.

The Kickstarter campaign reached its goal very quickly, however it doesn’t end until August 22. There are currently still early bird discounts available.
