I never thought that furniture and plants would go together like peanut butter and chocolate, but I've seen some things lately that totally change my mind. These are a total departure from everyday flower pots and planters, and make for a happy marriage that saves space and lets you keep the green inside all year round.

Instructables also shares step-by-step instructions on how to make a basic, modern wooden table that perfect for an indoor garden.

If you'd rather buy than DIY, Overstock sells tables meant to house living plants. The Upton Home Display Terrarium Side Table (above) sells for $136 but there are also console and coffee table sizes.
