Park Pretty

Posted May 6, 2008
Though lounging in the park may seem lovely in theory, it unfortunately requires getting off the couch, changing out of your falling-apart sweatpants, and actually heading out the door. And on a weekend morning, that's just too much effort. The Park Planter from designer Tristan Zimmerman lets you enjoy a little greenery without actually venturing outside. A small plant pokes through the top of this white ceramic holder, giving shade to one of four available park scenes: mugger, lost salesperson, flasher, or (caught-in-the-act) gay couple. The last one, of course, is NSFW but works perfectly as a cheeky adornment for the apartment you refuse to leave. Fresh air not included.
