  Phase Design’s Griffin planter is as substantial as it is stunning. Made from hand-sanded fiberglass with an automotive polyurethane gloss finish the Griffin measures in at 18-inches high and 16 inches in diameter and the Griffin XL at 28-inches high and 20 inches in diameter. Good for the indoors though better suited for the backyard, the planter can also be complemented with the Griffin Stool/Table, which features the same shape but topped with a 1.5-inch solid walnut butcher board lid.
