Bringing the outside in: indoor gardening with Biophilic furniture

Instead of venturing out of the house to go to work or get groceries, the pandemic made us adapt to going about our daily lives within the confines of four walls. Even two years after the pandemic’s start, people are still bringing a touch of the outside in, which has resulted in a boom of indoor gardening, houseplants, living green walls, biophilic furniture, and more.

“With the lockdown, so many people who lived in metropolitan cities were unable to do things like lunch in the park, or enjoy an afternoon reading in an open space,” says gardening expert Dominique Charles of Plots & Pans. “Adding cool houseplants brought the joy of the outdoors that many didn’t realize they missed. I hope people continue to add plants into their homes for the beauty and fresh air quality they provide.”

Nick Cutsumpas, the plant coach and urban farmer behind Farmer Nick, agrees: “People are spending more time at home than ever before, and they want to feel connected to something green that they can nurture,” he says.

While our love of houseplants is high—with 66% of American households owning at least one houseplant—that’s just the beginning. People are also bringing full-on gardens into their homes. In the past, gardening hasn’t always been the most accessible hobby. Unless you had a backyard, ample space, and the right conditions, growing your own food wasn’t always an option. But thanks to a little creativity and some new technology, bringing the outside in and creating your dream garden—regardless of space and climate—is on the rise.
