Intent


The merging of night stand with plant stand within this product aims to unite the calming atmosphere of plants with users who frequently suffer from restless nights. 

This hybrid night stand features an exposed plant pot that strives to emulate the authenticity of the natural world. Additionally, repetition of linear elements are intended to be reminiscent of the art deco period. This allusion to history along with the connection to the natural world seeks to ground users in the present moment.

Additionally, different plants that help relieve anxiety and promote wellness are recommended to rest in the stand. These can include but are not limited to, lavender, peace lilies, spider plants, etc. 

Ultimately the stand aims to alleviate stress and restlessness through the creation of an emotional connection with users as well as connection to medicinal aspects of the natural world.
