This trio may seem out of place on your coffee table, but they would look right at home nestled in a dense rainforest canopy. One of the pieces resembles a nepenthes, also known as a pitcher plant. While the smoking device appears to be a deadly carnivorous plant, this piece eats nugs as opposed to bugs. The other piece mimics a delicate tropical flower. With its beautiful lifelike petals, purple colors, and exotic shape, the piece itself feels like it’s alive; It looks as though at any moment it could start winding a vine around your wrist as you smoke.
