Fun with Foliage!

Gone are the days of using standard leather leaf. Foliages of all types play a primary role as a main element in modern design. Foliages such as ti leaves, aspidistra, alligator foliage, calathea, maranta and alocasia offer unique patterned leaves that can be showcased inside, lining the vase with a unique pattern offering intriguing value versus a plain clear vase and criss-crossed stems. Our signature look is to fill a clear vase with a layer of brightly colored stones and then line the vase with foliages such as those pictured below.
