Dual Purpose Furniture – An Innovative Way to Plant Your Indoor Garden
Dual purpose furniture offers a unique design opportunity to infuse a small amount of greenery in your home.
Popularity of urban living has created more and more density with little to no room for green spaces in the mix. Small planters seem to be an easy fix but they can take precious interior space. So how does someone living in a small space enjoy nature in their home?
Designers have been inspired enough to work on solutions for this particular problem! There have been several innovative design concepts, including dual purposed furniture, which allows us to now grow small indoor gardens inside of our homes. These designs often include integrated LED lighting for plant growth instead of actual sunlight where possible – all integrated into functional furniture pieces. This concept opens avenues for more designs like this, which will allow us users to enjoy a little bit of green within the confines of small spaces.

Unfortunately the only review on this nifty piece of furniture isn’t very good. We’re hoping it’s a one off issue as this product is relatively new.Buy Online
