The cat owners among you may not be surprised to learn that Poppy chews on plants: floral bouquets, mini trees, she’s even considered snacking on a bit of cactus. Yes, really. My attempt at solving the problem is to elevate her favourite target, our awkwardly sized ficus tree.
This crazy little thing comes from my new thrift shop haunt and appears to be from the 50s or early 60s when such amorphic, kidney-shaped tables were all the rage. The fleur-de-lis type mosaic design threw me a little bit because it doesn’t seem typical for the period, but I couldn’t say for sure.
The shape and height of this one are similar to mine, but the legs appear to be made of wood and that black and white pattern is much slicker.
Love this one. Try finding something this bold at IKEA. Beige conformity begone!
I’m happy with my plant stand arrangement so far. The brass works well with the mid-century bird wall hanging above the door and the little legs of the table are coping well with the weight of the ficus.
