How Would You . . .

Perhaps it's my love of Creole townhouses that has made me a sucker for scroll work, but I simply can't help myself when confronted with any wrought-iron intricacies. This Plant Stand ($4,500) from mid-19th century France is no exception; its shabby chic, white, wrought-iron scroll work and elegant basketweave details have completely swept me off my feet. Of course the two-tiered plant stand is parfait for Good to Grow month, but I'd love to give it more attention in my home somehow, make it a focal point.


For this latest How Would You, I'd like you to think about how you would fill this belle of the ball. How would you make this eye-catcher a focal point in your home? Would you use it as a plant stand in an unusual place? Hang it from the ceiling? Turn it into a chandelier? Top it with glass as a coffee table? Leave a comment below and let me know where you'd plant this antique stand.
