The Retro Bullet Planter by Hip Haven is a unique mid-century modern inspired planter. "Bullet" planters take their name from their conical bowl shape. Nested in a steel tripod stand, they appear almost ready for take-off. First manufactured in mid-20th century America, the planters reflected the era's fascination with all things "space age" and "modern."
Technological advancements in the 1950’s opened up new avenues for designers, allowing them to build light, durable objects with curves, lines, and integral colors not possible with traditional materials. Fiberglass-reinforced resin was especially popular. Used early-on in crash helmets, this fire-resistant, waterproof material was introduced into a wide variety of household objects from colorful lamp shades, to the classic Eames shell chair, to the bullet planter. Equally suited to a Modernist urban apartment as to the new crop of Atomic Era ranch homes, the colorful planters were an instant classic.
Hip Haven’s planters are made of compression-molded fiberglass with integral pigment. Powder- coated steel tripod stands will tolerate covered outdoor conditions and are available in black or silver finishes.
Usually ships in 1 -2 weeks days.
Bowl Diameter 15.75"

Love it. I was going to get the medium sized planter, but I am glad I got the larger one. Looks really good in my Mid century modern room.

I love mid century modern design and when I saw this planter I was very excited. The planter looked amazing online, but when I got it I was Thrilled! The color is exactly the same as protrayed on Just Modern's website and the actual weight of the pot is much lighter than I thought! The legs are sturdy but I can easily move it around and the quality is excellent and will last forever.
