Introducing the Scandinavian Ceramics Collection
Scandinavian ceramic design: now available with our plant & pot sets shipping nationwide!

Scandinavian ceramics have arrived.

What’s clean, airy, minimal… and cozy? Say hello to Scandinavian ceramic design, the newest collection of sleek modern planters for your indoor greenery.

What is Scandinavian design?

Scandinavian Design is a design movement that emerged in the 1950s and flourished throughout the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Sweden, & Norway) around the same time mid-century modern styles were taking hold in the United States.

It’s all in the details: Scandinavian ceramic design is all about form + function.

Marked by simplicity, minimalism, and functionality, Scandinavian design brings to mind bright, airy spaces, muted tones and textures, and natural elements like stone and wood. Other features include furniture pieces with simple and clean lines, the use of white negative space, and, inspired by a deep appreciation for nature, plenty of indoor greenery.

Scandinavian ceramic design for your indoor plants

Given Scandinavian design is so deeply inspired by natural beauty, it is no surprise that this style of ceramic so wonderfully complements indoor plants. Simple, clean lines and soft, neutral colors bring out the best in the foliage of our favorite houseplants, making bright tones pop and deeper shades glow. And when it comes to Scandinavian design, form never compromises function: 100% waterproof and complete with a deep overflow saucer, they are designed for optimal health of your indoor plants.

Behind the scenes at Léon & George: All about our ceramics
jc-white-s.jpg

Finding the perfect ceramics for our plants was not easy.

We didn’t want something that just looked good. We wanted something that would last, too— high quality, durable, and stylish enough to stand the test of time. Furthermore, truly great design encompasses form and function, and believe it or not, many ceramic planters fail to meet the latter.

That’s why we decided to take things into our own hands, partnering with LBE Design to create something that met each and every one of our standards. After months of research and testing, enter Revival Ceramics, a timeless collection of handmade ceramic cylinders that we are proud to call our own.

A perfectly-designed pot = a happy and healthy plant.

We strive to set our plants (and customers!) up for success. We don’t want our plants to just look good— they need to feel good, too. That means our 100% waterproof planters are designed to fit most grow pots, allowing us to “stage” plants inside them and thus set them up for optimal health. The plant not only has sufficient room to breath in its grow pot, but it’s also raised up inside, reducing the risk of overwatering.

A partnership with a purpose.

Building a socially and environmentally sustainable business is core to our values. It drives our choice to work with makers who care deeply about the materials they use and the people they employ. With LBE Design, we traveled the world to find the best partners in ceramics and wood working. We visited multiple factories, met with artisans and managers, and ultimately built relationships with the partners that aligned most with our desire for quality and opportunity for each and every employee. From the nurseries where our plants grow to the natural wood finish of each stand, our plant sets are truly made with love by mother nature and humankind. 

Premium Hardwood Plant Stands

Finally, a stand for your large plant friends. Give them a lift (literally) with these 100% reclaimed hardwood stands, finished with VOC-free oil to accentuate the natural beauty and grain of the Sapele Mahogany wood. Sized perfectly for 15” ceramic pots and goes great with the Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree or Desert Cactus.

A Partnership with a Purpose

At Léon & George we choose to work with makers who care deeply about the materials they use and the people they employ. In addition to offering a finely crafted and stunning product, Old World Timber is committed to giving back to their community. Our partnership, rooted with purpose, can be felt in the handiwork and design behind each Sapele Wood Stand.
