Take Care Design Umbrella Stand Concept with Mini Indoor Garden Drip Tray

We suspect that you will either take to this idea or, well, you just won’t, but we love the playfulness – and the almost surreal quality – of this Take Care Umbrella Stand by Mélanie Vandenhecke and Hugo Cociani of What Else? Design.

Featuring a steel frame mounted to a wood drip tray into which you can plant flowers or, to follow the designers’ lead, what appears to be grass, any drips falling from a hung umbrella will serve to water your mini indoor garden rather than occasion puddles on the floor.

Wacky, certainly, but well worth a mention here on EP. As to whether it’s cool, however, is entirely at your discretion.
