Gus Modern Rectangular Fruit Trough Planter
Laura from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
I thought it might be a little shallow, but I used it to plant succulents, and it fit great. I placed two in a window-sill; the plants added so much color and texture, and the planter kept it minimal and cool.
Brenda from New Orleans, LA– Verified Buyer
I filled it with pebbles and air plants for a beautiful look on top of my new bookshelf
Michelle from Austin, TX– Verified Buyer
Love the simplistic design, looks perfect on my dining table. Was a bit pricey, but couldn't find anything else that was the length that I wanted.
Alissa from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer
Very streamlined and modern. Only downside is the slight discoloration of metal near where the seams were created and then polished.

Very good and modern but a bit costly
Filip from Reading, MA– Verified Buyer
I really like this product though I think you pay a substantial chunk for the Gus name. Also, it picks up natural oil from your fingers like a magnet. Almost feels like it has to be handled with gloves. All in all, its modern, elegant and quite beautiful!
