We've long enjoyed Urban Outfitters as a surprise budget home spot, and their newest program is a great way to surprise even your friends who are in on the home goods secret. Called Artist Editions, the series features original designs from independent artisans. The program features new artists every month, meaning you can get something truly unique that'll make your friends ask, "Where'd you get that?"
To kick off the series, Urban is launching with for artists around a plant theme. In other words: they're very aware it's 2018 and you want plenty of ways to incorporate more green and growing things in your life.
See the full collections below. All Artist Edition items are available in select stores and online. And hurry, they're only available for a limited time.
Hello Happy Plants
Handmade and hand-painted in Orlando, FL, Kelsey Ryder's planters are the perfect home for happy plants. Her cheeky designs turn everyday objects, like cigarettes and plastic bags, into useful objects. Her UO collection includes an exclusive sock planter great for air plants.
NewMade LA by Amsterdam Modern
Sometimes everything you need to know about a company is in its name. Get the mid-century modern look you want at affordable prices. Vintage-inspired, these are all made (or, should we say NewMade) in LA. For Urban Outfitters, the company has designed several planters as well as a folding stool great for small spaces. (For sitting in and gazing at your plants, perhaps?)
For those of us who love plants but can't keep them alive, there's something in this Artist Edition drop for you, too. Ted Feighan's eye-popping, colorful collages incorporate florals and photographs in lush, sometimes surreal prints and home goods. Of course, those who can keep plans alive may find the printed versions compliment their home jungle nicely as well, too.
Brooklyn-based Virginia Sin describes her philosophy this way: "Home is where you do whatever you want. That's why we do whatever we want." The multi-disciplinary artist has created a line of handmade goods that you can use as catch-alls, planters, or just decorative objects – whatever you want!
