Our correspondent Abbie Martin Greenbaum has curated a list of the 10 best new planters, plant stands and pots that indoor gardeners will love adding to their collection for home or office sills.

We hope that we can ease the transition by making our desks feel as cozy as possible. That means decorating with our favorite accessories, framed photos, and above all, plants. Especially after the last year, many of us have come to appreciate plants in a new way – they bring so much to our home environments, and we have no idea how we ever lived without them.

Of course, if you’re looking for the perfect plant for your desk, it has to be small and easy to care for – think a succulent, or a cactus. And above all, it has to come in the right planter. After all, you only have so much room – you want every single piece of décor to help make the space your own.

Here are ten planters we recommend for easing the return to the office.

1. Beach Planter from Helen Levi

With a planter like this one on your desk, it will feel like summer every day, all year long. Made from three marbled stonewares, this stunning piece has a smooth and clear interior, and an exterior that retains the appearance of raw clay. With its single drainage hole and matching saucer, this would be a great match for anyone who’s hoping to actually grow something small from their desk. Every piece is made to order by the New York artist.

2. Small Planter from Megan Louise Ceramics

All the ceramics from the UK-based artist are completely handmade at her home studio. She never uses a potter’s wheel, and even colors her glazes herself, ensuring that every single piece is one of a kind. Planters like this beauty would be well-suited for a succulent, cactus, or other low-maintenance plant. It would also make an excellent gift, if you have any reluctant office-returners in your life.

Quite literally called “One of a Kind,” their ceramics collection looks like nothing we’ve ever seen. Their New Moon Vase is finished with a matte black, and would add a distinctive flair as the centerpiece of any desk.

4. Gold Orbita Vessel from Deep Black

This eye-catching vessel is two plant pots for the price of one: it’s reversible. Both the speckled side and gold-finished side are small and sturdy planters, and either would make a happy home for your new succulent.  Deep Black ceramics comes from artist Sherród Faulks, who wanted to make affordable pottery that would suit a modern aesthetic. His work has been featured all over the internet.
