Large copper dodecahedron, Looking Glass Design

With a love of minimalism and geometric shapes, photographer and graphic designer Rachelle Paul started making terrariums as a side hustle, using recycled glass from old windows and greenhouses across the province. This light-catching beauty is perfect for potting succulents, or as its own decorative piece. $100, Koko Mod Floral Design, 158 Portland Street, etsy.com

Concrete planters, Concreations

Concreations' URL declares that "concrete is cool," and these little cuties are evidence of that. Though the company spends most of its energy making fireplaces, counters and patios, these little plant pots—pictured in triangle and dodecahedron—are an easy way to work a little concrete into your decor. $20, The Flower Shop, 1887 Granville Street, concreations.myshopify.com or concreteiscool.com

Reclaimed wood mirrors, WoodSaltSun

Good wood never goes out of style, which is why WoodSaltSun is breathing new life into discarded materials, salvaged from barns, docks and other spots around Nova Scotia. Andre Legault makes mirrors (as pictured), picture frames and coasters—as well as custom designs. $70-$90, P'Lovers, 1443 South Park Street and 52 Queen Street, woodsaltsun.ca

Ceramic vase, Therese Bombardier Designs

Because imperfections are beautiful, Therese Bombardier embraces them with the hand-built ceramic vases in her Aurous collection, making every piece one-of-a-kind. The stoneware's subtle distinctions are highlighted with gold and silver luster so they shine even brighter. $45, Made in the Maritimes,5527 Young Street, and various other locations, theresebombardier.com
