You can't miss the hanging chair on the cover of the month's book club selection and who doesn't want one of their own (the chair)?! It's a total kid-dream to sway gently in a chair slung from the ceiling while reading a good book or chatting with good friends. Despite the hard look of the rattan construction, this chair is actually really comfy and ready for many hours of swaying.
Ian and Kara say the Urn Plant is good for Living Spaces, Working Spaces, and Sleeping Spaces. Apparently, the Aechmea works counterintuitively by releasing oxygen at night as opposed to the day, so in the bedroom, it improves the quality of the air we breathe while we are sleeping. (Note that this plant does not ship to certain states>)
Terrariums are experiencing a serious revival and are mentioned 11 times in this book. Why? Because they lend themselves to an intimate planting scheme. The glass walls create its own microclimate while giving you a convenient window into the lives of your plants.

A super cool way to display plants these days is to make them 'cabinet plants' and we love the minimalist Nordic appeal of this one. Plus the glass gives you and your plants maximum viewing potential.
This Graham & Greene modern geometric designed pot can stand alone as a simple focal point planting or be grouped beautifully with other similarly themed containers.
These beauties are great for large-scale displays of plants. The authors list Peace Lily as one of five statement flowering plants that bring drama to a room. Spathiphyllum is also one of those great nighttime oxygenators for your bedroom.
Braided seagrass baskets in all shapes and sizes are in the class of adding interest to your potting schemes. The bigger the container, the lighter the material it should be made from, especially if it is a plant that is going to be moved around. Baskets are good options in this case.
Recommended in the book for living spaces and tabletops, this is a good focal-point plant , perfect for plant shelves and cabinet displays.
The two most effective methods for choosing a container are to have pots that either complement the space and thus blend in with it or wildly contrast with it thereby making a statement. These weather-worn, rustic barrels can go either way depending on the room and what you choose around it.
It's now possible to source containers in as many materials and finishes as you can dream up. Combining an industrial concrete finish with shimmery brass, this one is really on trend.
The airy architecture of this vertical frame will hold your collection of all that is precious, including your plants, books and objets d'art.
The curio cabinet of olde is being remade as a stylish element of contemporary Scandinavian decor that is at the centerpiece of the 'urban jungle' movement.
