A shelf full of plants in the middle of the room divides the space and delineate different parts of the room. Use them instead of more opaque furniture or screens
One large well-developed tree adds height and drama to a room. Case in point: the ginormous split leaf philodendron in the living room to the left
Clusters of plants especially work well in room corners where nothing else fits and in otherwise awkward and wasted spaces. This grouping from Restored is a huge contrasting mix of sizes and shapes that you could look at for hours.
Plants that spill out of their containers add a nice sense of movement to a room that you can’t get with other things. This warehouse in Brooklyn has a special shelf on the landing which allows plants to cascade down onto a lower level.
