The current wave of cannabis enthusiasm hasn’t just made for better strains, cleaner highs and more innovative extraction processes (Hi-Phi anyone?), it’s elevated cannabis-adjacent home decor and accessories to new aesthetic heights. Whether the products are decorative, functional, or a bit of both, whether the designers are indie or established, this crop of elegant canna-kit is sure to enhance both your headspace and your home space. (Or add to your modern smoking room, perhaps?)
Seth Rogen’s new cannabis decor and accessory company, Houseplant, has bowled us over with its mid-century-inspired style, and this hand-blown ashtray designed by Melanie Abrantes and crafted by Gary Bodker of Portland is no exception. The contrast between the natural cork and the pop of orange glass makes this piece truly functional art.
US-based Rawganique doesn’t just comb, spin, weave, knit, and sew their textiles, they grow the hemp themselves. So you’ll enjoy a little peace of mind as you enjoy the breathable ribbed knit of their 100-percent organically grown hemp blanket, available in a selection of timeless colors.
As cannabis continues to become more and more mainstream, it’s been a joy to see iconic creatives publicly express their love of the flower. Whether you go for a colorful “Crack Is Whack” print or something more subdued – as subdued as Keith Haring’s bold, contrasting lines get, anyway – Higher Standards suggests using this tray for rolling and mixing. But you can use it for anything you’d use a durable glass tray for, or even just display it as art.
So we’re a little biased in our love of the Golden State, but you don’t have to be a native to enjoy this rustic, earthenware mug that embraces gorgeous 1970s-inspired style. If the vintage cannabis bear print looks a little familiar, that’s because it’s inspired by the 1913 sheet music cover for California’s state song, “I Love You California”.
Sunset Bong by Yew Yew ($140)
Enjoy a hit made ever-so-smooth by sturdy construction and borosilicate glass, or just stick a flower in this little slice of sculptural beauty. No matter what you do with it, Yew Yew’s New York-designed Sunset series looks stunning in teal, amber, ocean, or mint green.
Vice Ganja Canister by Jonathan Adler ($110.00)
The maximalism and warm pastels of the 1970s are absolutely in, and Jonathan Adler’s Vice series meets the trend head-on. This is the kind of Soho statement piece that brings the whole kitchen together and, straight from the designer’s mouth, “[shows] off your indulgences, from sweets to sedatives, in irresistible hues.”
Paola Herb Grinder by Laundry Day ($65.00)
Laundry Day’s whole lineup makes cannabis artful, but these days, we love their weighted herb grinder with a magnetic closure and vintage-inspired design. Functionally, you’ll get a nice coarse grind here, but when it’s not in use, the gold seashell design adds a touch of retro class to your nightstand or vanity.
This timeless botanical print is as earthy as the strain it celebrates, and its archival paper looks great mounted on minimalist clips. Illustrated by Nathan Maggard, all proceeds from this piece are donated to Project Sanctuary, which helps returning veterans and military families get back to their day-to-day lifestyles with a focus on mental health and therapeutic efforts. (You can check out other pieces of art inspired by the plant in our roundup of the best cannabis art pieces!)
Winter Organic Hemp + Flax Comforter by Hemp Organic Life ($184.00 – $249)
Cannabis can be cozy, and Hemp Organic Life takes that notion literally. The rustic linen fabric is filled with two layers of all-natural hemp fiber, which just so happens to be a natural antiallergen that is both warm and breathable, and the whole package is free of dyes, herbicides, and pesticides.
Ceramicist and photographer Debbie Carlos aims to capture moments of quiet strangeness and minute-by-minute surprises in her often mischievous works, and that’s exactly what the Play Pipe set does. The numerous geometric shapes of this speckled stoneware encourage all manner of playful arrangement, just about any of which would fit right in at a museum. Oh, and one piece is a fully functional pipe while another is a compact one-hitter.
The smooth ceramic and ovular shape of this 15.5-inch planter brightens up any window sill, while the included metal scissors add a sharply functional touch. Crate and Barrel doesn’t outright suggest that you grow Cannabis sativa L. in their planter, but it sure does look good in there.
Per the artist, “this jar was designed to highlight the absurdity of the current federal drug classifications,” but it does social commentary in style with lines inspired by apothecary jars that have been around since the 1400s. Just the right size for a small plant, q-tips, or a good handful of nugs.
Photographic Prints by The Cannabis Museum ($49 – $5,000)
This series of high-quality photographic prints highlighting genuine historic medicines and tinctures featuring cannabis serves at least two purposes – it adds a thoughtful conversation piece to your walls and contributes to a good cause, as the nonprofit Cannabis Museum of Ohio aims to preserve and educate with a focus on the prohibition and politics of cannabis, as well as its wide spectrum of beneficial use cases.
Edie Parker knows how to make a statement, and her acrylic storage case screams, “this is Y2K design philosophy that is candy for your eyeballs” (our words, not hers). The neon ochre of berry, yellow, and violet can’t be ignored (it comes in a searing yellow and green Banana colorway, too), and the three compartments protected by a magnetic closure are as functional as the piece is joyful.
The chunky, glossy black tumbler and coral, sans-serif-emblazoned label of this LA-made, hand-poured candle make your space look as good as it’ll smell. The scent of cannabis flower mingles with brushed suede, white musk, tulip, and amber notes to curate a vibe that’s “bright, green and subtly dank” – just like you.
