Plinths are Trending, and Here are 18 Captivating Pieces to Showcase on a Pedestal

, , , , , , , , , By Catherine Lazure-Guinard

Pinths and podiums have been trending recently. If you look back at home tours featured in the last few months (here, here and here, to show a few), you’ll spot a socle somewhere. Also called a pedestal or a stand, it can be used to display a bust, books, plant or lamp. At home, we’ve built our own with some pieces of wood and painted MDF boards. Easy, if DIY projects are your things. For a time-saving but more costly option, Danish brand Menu has a white marble plinth that I love.

It is without surprise that with the rising popularity of plinths also comes a growing interest for sculptures and other eye-catching pieces. There are more and more of them in residential interiors, from simple to precious, handpicked for their beauty. Elegant objects and exquisite curiosities add interest and a striking, personal touch to any room. And displayed on a socle, we are putting them into the spotlight, elevating them and enhancing their artistic quality. Here, I’m sharing 18 beautiful and captivating pieces that are perfect decorative details and accessories to showcase proudly on your plinth.
