Meet Melbourne Brand Capra Designs

Oh how I adore an indoor plant. When the Botanics trend hit last year, I swooned over wonderfully styled greenery and longed for the day I could have some in my own home.

If you’re wondering why I can’t have greenery, let me introduce you to my two cats, Emi and Mim. I introduced a plant into the house when Emi was a kitten and she completely annihilated it. If you have any tips on how to stop cats going for your plants, please let me know!

Anyway, indoor plants are still huge and I don’t anticipate they’ll fade away anytime soon. Not when local brands like Capra Designs are landing; producing heart-racing creations like the ones you see in this post.

These Australian-made plant vessels, modernist-inspired wire plant stands and gorgeous hangers are the result of plenty of blood, sweat and tears from Melbourne couple Bianca Lambert and Thomas Wilson.

A carpenter by trade, Thomas specialising in luxury houses with high-end modern finishes. Bianca is an arts marketer by profession and avid, hands-on maker. Combine those varied skillsets and you have yourself some pretty stunning results, don’t you think?

The wire items you see at the top of the post are designed with attention to form, balance and function. They’re powder-coated – either black or white – allowing them to elegantly frame the colourful pots and vibrant plants you sit inside them. These would be a great solution to put up high away from my cats longing gaze and grasp!

Each pot is individually hand-crafted out of water-based resin and finished with a satin seal. Irregularities in colour and pattern of each finished product are evidence of the careful, hand-made process, which is always an element in design that appeals to me (mass production is great and all, but where’s the heart and soul in that?)

If you’re keen to explore the range further, click here to jump over to the Capra Designs website and do some hard swooning yourself. I reckon these are going to sell like hotcakes.

What’s your fave piece from the Capra Designs range? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

  1. Love these! As to keeping your cats away from your plants… try buying them their very own tray/pot of cat nip. They will love it (and you) forever and hopefully stay away from your other plants 🙂

    • Oh Pamela, you rock! I never considered doing that for the cats actually. Maybe if I give them a dedicated zone to ruff up they’ll leave other plants alone. Thanks for the tip 🙂
