Go faux

With quality increasing at a spectacular rate, silk flowers have become increasingly popular over recent years and are no longer shunned as an ugly alternative – even favoured by stylists, interior designers and fashion mags for certain occasions. We’ve expanded our range of faux flowers and foliage to include a host of ivy, cherry blossom and anemone (coming to the web-shop soon), and all are an extremely cost-effective way to transform a venue. Another popular option is scattering petals, so we’ve just added a new line of romantic colours to our silk range, including grey, blush pink, wisteria, pure white and burgundy.

Animals incorporated into design are predicted to be big this year (from Pulbrook & Gould’s safari wreath to ‘grammable wildlife ceramics and luxury bird-cage lampshades) so you’ll find new feathered friends in our collection including a thrush and blue tit – perfect for replicating the top interior trend. Plus, our colourful butterflies have had a glittery makeover, and we’ve launched a line of ladybird pegs and stickers, great for making orders more memorable.
