The Graceful Custom is about plants. Indoor plants. And the pots we put them in.

We are especially obsessed by the fashions and history of house plants: plotting a course from the Victorian fixation with aspidistras and ferns to today’s renewed obsession with succulents, cacti and terrariums.

Using books, art and antiques we are weaving together the story of how indoor plants took root in our hearts and homes, and how we have been enjoying their aesthetic, health and decorative benefits for more than a century.

For more on our name see our first post Here’s to you Mr Robinson.
