“We’ve come a long way from the dried florals and plastic arrangements of the 1980s and ’90s!” says designer and shop owner Caitlin Wilson.
“My clients love a high-end alternative to an expensive fresh peony arrangement that needs replacing every week,” continues Wilson. “Faux florals are perfect for the rooms in the home that perhaps don’t get as much traffic, like the formal living room, an office, or a bathroom. Not all faux florals are created equal, but the right kind of orchid, peony, or cherry blossom can really fool the eye. A great faux floral is not inexpensive, but it’s worth the savings over time.”
