From Prickly Plant Seating to Cactus Contortionist Captures

By: Vivian Lau - Published: Jul 16, 2012
This series of cactus creations shows how the resilient little plant, though a tricky and prickly being itself, has found a warm and soft place within our hearts.

Perhaps its popularity derives from its ability to endure even without water -- so it's an ideal plant for those who have trouble taking care of themselves to begin with. The fascination with its quirky shape and unusual exterior property have inspired a wealth of ironic furniture pieces, such as cactus chairs, stools and couches. They have been featured in many a fashion piece, as a spiky addition to the sharp high heel or a playful prop in an editorial photo shoot.

The spunky plant represents power and toughness, two desirable qualities that we would like to inject in all aspects of our lives. Stats for 35 Nettlesome Cactus Creations Trending: Older & Warm
