Meet Eco Deer: Makers of Botanical Wall Vases for the Home

The Life Creative is all about supporting local, but sometimes phenomenal design knows no geography. 

In today’s post I’m introducing you to an international brand you’re going to fall head over heels for. And you can win one of their designs!

The Life Creative Eco Deer hanging planter

I treat Eco Deer as a floral trophy board,” explains Kate Deer, the brand founder, maker and team leader at Eco Deer. It’s probably the best way to describe the range this Ukraine business has birthed, which sells its varied creations locally through Etsy.

A botanical wall vase might be another way to explain what these gorgeous pieces are, but however you sum them up you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who could deny their inherent beauty.

It was after a trip to the US in 2015 that Kate and her husband starting toying with the idea of producing a creative board for flower hunters. It wasn’t long after they returned home that they started getting to work on creating their first designs.

The process wasn’t as straight-forward as you might think, with Kate spending several weeks making a prototype, finding the right materials, contracting producers and more. Finally though, the first product was born, and it was exactly as Kate has envisioned.

I was always fascinated with the idea of how simple natural elements can make home décor so vivid and interesting,” Kate tells me, when I ask her about the inspiration behind her business and its eye-catching creations.

“I love plants and I love to use them in different combinations both at home and in my projects,” she explains. “And Eco Deer appeared as a perfect connection between interiors and plants”.

I’m taken aback by the wonderful sense of nature and minimalism in these pieces. They are so simple and yet so striking, and they have a quiet confidence about them. There’s also the aspect of versatility and personalisation that appeals to me too; you can put any number of plants, branches or flowers in the vases and have an ever-rotating nature display on your wall.

With the botanic trend being one of the biggest to hit in recent years, these pieces give you a whole new way to rock the indoor plant vibe but in a unique, interesting way.

Of the process involved, Kate has now gotten it down to a fine art and enjoys the time it takes to make these marvels.

“I definitely enjoy it,” she tells me. “It is always great feeling when you create something and you’re satisfied with the result”.

    I love the Black Eco Deer Vase! I love how striking a Kelly Green coloured Palm frond looks against the black matte. Very Controppo! (My own style I’ve invented which is fusing contemporary with tropical stuff! ).

    I seriously love the black deer vase – it would go perfectly in my newly built loungeroom (nearly finished) as i am painting the walls a white with a touch of blue/grey – this black deer vase would stand out against the wall plus with greenery or any coloured leaves (of which we have plenty on our block) would go amazing against the black 🙂

    Absolutely LOVE the black eco deer vase! It would look amazing against my purple feature wall. Such a unique, fun and lovely way to display flowers and foliage. I would have such a great time playing with different designs, some thing you can regularly change. Such a simple yet stunning way to bring the outside indoors. Just gorgeous!

    Particularly like the Geometric Metal Wall Planter/Botanical Wall Vase (Home Black Deer Decor-Wall Vase for Plants) – for its striking pattern that suits modern and contemporary interior wall setting. I love that botanicals and live plants are now being incorporated to interior decorating that really adds to the natural and organic ambience of every interior. This is one way of making use of your plants, leaves, flowers and branches free from your garden!!! What an economical way of bringing the outdoors indoor.
