pull + push mansion planter

if the landlord won’t give you access to plant a green roof, you could still achieve it in miniature with this wee (about 4″ x 5″ x 5″) mansion planter from japan’s nobuhiro sato for his pull + push company. it’s solidly made of mortar, glass and brass. nobuhiro seeks to incorporate architectural details into his home accessory products, so i urge you to find joy in the architectural details like the chunky stairs and the window railings!

you know you’d probably get a lot of great light in the place if those windows face south…

p.s. i like his ashtray (not that i’m advocating) and incense burner too!

    What fun! As well as a roof deck, in our dream house my hubs and I want to have a roof top garden. I love the mansion planter. What fun! The incense burner with smoke coming out of the chimney is awesome! I love it when people look at the world from a different perspective. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    hi lindsay,

    they are really fun aren’t they? they are extra small so if you buy a bunch you can have a whole green community of planters!

    nice to see you, and btw that bedspread in your etsy shop is awesome!

    Those are so cool.

    hi bob,

    these are super cool. since they have feet that lift them off the ground and are made of materials a house is made of, they could probably work outside in colder climates year round.

    always a pleasure to chat with you!
