Late last year we published an article highlighting the abundant ‘crop’ as it were of pineapples in 2015. These spiked skinned fruits having infiltrated every nook and cranny of hip and happening places and people (on their clothes obviously, a little uncomfortable otherwise!).

In recent months however we’re noticing another prickled plant looking to steal the thorny crown and become the latest unofficial design mascot of cool: the cactus.

Despite its parched roots belonging in deserts and savannahs, the cactus has become a firm favorite in Scandinavian interior design, befitting of crisp coolness, clean lines and offsetting the white density. Their requirement for heat and lack of water and care enables them to bridge the outdoor and indoor world in a minimalistic, and modern tone.

Here’s some of our recent favorites to take your ‘prick’ from:
