Design Sleuth: A Low-Maintenance Olive Branch Arrangement

Julie Carlson May 21, 2014

Faux flowers and branches have gotten good enough to fool the experts (are you reading this, Sarah?). A couple of years ago, I spotted some eerily lifelike olive branches at Pottery Barn and decided to take the plunge. Here are some sources for similar branches:

Above: The bendable stems make it possible to create a perfectly imperfect-looking arrangement. The painting of Provincetown is by Arthur Cohen. Photo by Matthew Williams for Remodelista.

Above: A 33-inch synthetic Olive Branch stem is £29 from the Olive Tree.

Above: A dozen 21-inch-long polyester Olive Branches is $69.90 from Earth Flora.

Above: Crate & Barrel offers a lifelike-looking Potted Olive Tree with concrete container for $199.
