File this one under one seriously creative take on a planter. While there’s nothing surprising about Ikea carrying a plant pot, the unique nature of this versatile piece sets it apart from the rest, to say the least. And just how exactly is it versatile, you may ask? The retailer suggests using it as an ice bucket, if allowing it to double as a vase just doesn’t do it for you.
