Each day the commercial world moves a little closer toward understanding the enormous benefits of greenery in corporate spaces as the biophilic movement continues to trend in popularity. Artificial plants are so much more than decor--they have the power to reshape the character of your space, and improve the quality of life for people who use it.
Faux plants have so much variety, so many different silhouettes and attitudes, that it can be hard to imagine what that word encompasses. If you were picturing a standard office desktop fern, you’d be exactly right, but “plants” also includes grasses, cacti, hanging plants, succulents, bamboo, english ivy, and so many other varieties.
Some types of plants have a very specific geographical source, and they can be used to create immersive themes that represent an atmosphere completely unlike yours. Artificial tropical plants and flowers create a wild aesthetic with deep green leaves and hanging vines that steal you in a transportive experience. Alternatively, a blend of cacti, succulents and hardy grasses can promote a sunny southwestern character more suited to your style.
But the benefits of fake indoor silk plants go beyond gimmicks and theming. In fact, the presence of plants, real or artificial, has been proven to promote workplace performance and boost the general happiness and satisfaction of people in that space (from CBRE and
University of Twente). Your indoor plantscaping doesn’t have to involve a grand theme or motif to enact these benefits either, even a minor presence of greenery is beneficial to people’s well-being.
