My latest design obsession? Tabletop terrariums. These lush little vessels can be filled with moss, succulents, or flowers (I’d probably go with moss because it’s easy to keep alive). If you dig the trend, options abound. This model at Amazon has a gambrel roof and looks like a mini green house. Anthropologie’s take is more modern. A smooth glass lid tops a wood base for an effect that’s rustic, yet sleek. My favorites, though, are manufactured by Roost and available at Asrai Garden (see photos above). The interiors are custom-designed by owner Elizabeth Cronin. Among the foliage, Cronin artfully arranges ceramic figurines from Brooklyn Rehab. Bonus: She can customize the tableau with your chosen figurines and plants.
