Why Faux Flowers Are Really Chic
from The Wall Street Journal
The thought of artificial flowers can conjure up some pretty gloomy images. Dusty, sun-bleached silk arrangements forgotten on windowsills. Unloved institutional decorations. Well-meaning gifts from relatives who just don't get it. But while we were busy shopping for fresh (if fleeting) peonies at the farmers' market, the seemingly uncool craft of simulating nature's blossoms has stealthily become chic. Brilliant faux blooms that defy preconceptions and last forever — the handiwork of artists and inspired floral stylists — have begun popping up everywhere from Kate Spade stores to high-end weddings.
