2018: The year to get started with artificial plants
A simple way to get started is with basic arrangements. These can be placed inside on window sills or separate stands. For a creative touch, try staging a succulent, elegantly staged in a glass cylinder, as a decorative centerpiece on the dinner table.
When first starting, think small and versatile. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different locations and different arrangements. Colours and textures can add to the appeal, and the experts at Planters Artificial
are standing by to offer suggestions and advice.
Larger air plants and succulents come in clay pots and work well in the back garden or viewable from the walkway as a welcome to guests. Our favourite artificial tree, especially for those living in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, is the Lemon Tree. Complete with appealing lemons, these arrangements come multiple potted settings and sizes.
Stem Flowers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Artificial blossoms, roses, and gerberas are among the most popular selections of artificial indoor plants as we move into 2018, sprucing up any room in the home with color and vibrancy. For more of a bouquet look (perhaps there’s a dinner party or event you’ll be hosting soon), try one or more of our peonies.
When a place calls for a natural setting, stem flowers and plants work well as fillers. Pussy willows and leaf orchids add a touch of the outdoors to artificial settings, and work particularly well along walkways and as a liner to terraced gardens.
Artificial plants for outdoor spaces
For those looking to fill outdoor spaces, foliages, grasses, and rushes might be the best option. Office spaces in particular are embracing foliages to represent the different seasons – Planters Artificial delivers Maple leaves matching Spring, Summer, and Fall, for example. If you have a water scene in the garden, accent it with a collection of palm fronds.
We also offer an extensive collection of ferns and aloes that perfectly complement the latest design trends for 2018
. In warmer climates like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, yucca plants add a touch of weather-centric flare.
When scenarios call for an incredibly life-like setting, we suggest items such as branches or moss grass to complement the more ‘visually stunning’ elements of décor. Visitors really react to aesthetics that tickle their senses from multiple angles.
Grasses and items carefully staged in the background provide a 360-degree experience and make people want to linger for a few extra minutes, critical for shops trying to push a sale or business executives looking to close that big deal. Many, such as Zebra Grass, come potted and can be relocated as necessary.
Setting the big scene with vertical walls and preserved palms
Think about Chicago’s Wrigley Field. What is the first thing that comes to mind? It’s the ivy, isn’t it? Such a defining feature is a great way to set your space apart from the others around it. Perfectly customisable, ivy can be hung in large or small plots, completely covering an area or leaving open space to share the glory. Ivy is 2018’s best way to liven up that large, open wall or balcony which currently sits exposed.
If you have the space, artificial trees
and preserved palms
can really increase the aesthetic appeal of your home or business. Large plazas and yards allow decorators to put multiple items together into one cohesive theme, giving the space a characteristic all its own. Our large collection of Ficus trees is among the most popular, as are the natural trunk trees like bamboo and olive ball.
are popular because they command attention immediately. Similar to the ivy we discussed earlier, guests will walk away with a memory (and likely a photo!) of your green wall
and how much they loved it. Boring be gone, vertical walls can liven up any space and are one of the most customisable options we offer.
have a similar effect, albeit offering the advantage of more strategic placement. While a green wall can only fit in certain spots, there are few bare spaces throughout a home or workplace that a preserved palm can’t liven up. Hosting a party in one room today and a different room tomorrow? Simple! Move them around, use them as greeters or background, and don’t be shy about adding an extra.
Inside homes and businesses, potted artificial plants and green walls are rapidly increasing in popularity. A big reason for this is that they can easily be moved. Perhaps your first go is to put them between a couch and a loveseat, but after a while decide to relocate the potted plant by a nearby window to allow more attention.
This is easily done – and adding to the collection is just as easy. Many choose to add a potted plant with each new piece of furniture or every room remodel, and we say why not?! 2018 is going to be all about personality. Trends are shifting from stagnant art pieces built for only one location in the home or office into more mobile options such as potted plants.
