Grand Vie Fall 2018 - West

I absolutely love flowers! There’s just something about passing a beautiful arrangement that puts a big smile on my face. I use #flowersmakemehappy regularly on social media. In an ideal world, I would have fresh florals delivered weekly to my home, but that’s not realistic. Having gorgeous and unique permanent botanicals is the next best thing. They’re a lovely finishing touch to any room’s design. I’ve often worked with Shane Friesenhahn of The Botanical Mix creating custom arrangements for client projects. Everyone raves about his botanicals, so I approached “ Our orchids appear so real that one of my clients discovered her housekeeper had been watering them . ” him to collaborate on designs we could offer at IBB Design Fine Furnishings. We added design elements inspired by high-end fresh florists, such as acrylic rods and geode accents like quartz, calcite, amethyst and malachite. The Botanical Mix also offers fresh floral arrangements, so Shane shares my perspective and pickiness when it comes to providing the best in permanent botanicals. I’m so thrilled to offer permanent botanicals that look so lifelike you have to touch them to experience the difference. Our first order sold out before we even put it on our retail floor. 10
