Ballard Designs Etta Cachepot serves multiple functions

It’s our philosophy that you should never buy a piece of furniture that just solves one problem. If you buy versatile pieces that can move around your home with ease and that serve multiple functions, you’ll have pieces that stand the test of time. Because of this, we’re always designing pieces with clever, hardworking details — like our Etta Cachepot. It’s not just a plant stand, it can be a champagne bucket when you’re entertaining and a side table too!
