These Duotone Vases Are Reversible, Depending On Your Color Scheme — Or Mood

The up-and-coming Australian designer Dean Toepfer had been primarily working on commissions and larger furniture pieces — like a bar cart made from a faux terrazzo composite and a sling chair upholstered in pink shag — since graduating from RMIT. But with the onset of the pandemic, Toepfer decided to reassess. "Vase Versa is my first object collection, and first self-produced range," Toepfer explains.

This 1960s Guide to Ikebana is the Resource We Need Right Now

I found The Art of Arranging Flowers, a comprehensive 1960s guide to the Japanese art of ikebana, in Stockholm at the beginning of last year. Too heavy to carry home, I tracked it down from a seller in Indiana and promptly bought it, thinking it would be a nice visual touchstone and a cool thing to display on my coffee table. Little did I know that a year later, I'd be wondering if the book could serve as an actual resource for those currently stuck in their homes, flailing about for ways to express their creativity.

In a New Series, 3D-Rendered Anthuriums Look (Unsurprisingly) Just Like the Real Thing

Appropriately called Digibana, the series finds Anders Brasch-Willumsen exploring the Japanese art of arranging flowers in a digital context, created by way of 3D-rendering software that keeps the flora alive forever. “I like to think of this series as a futuristic Ikebana practice,” Brasch-Willumsen says, “where moments of beauty are created and preserved only by a constant stream of likes and shares.”

Josef Albers Meets Yayoi Kusama in a Series of Infinity Mirror Installations By Sarah Meyohas

The New York–based artist is our favorite kind of multidisciplinary creative — she studied finance first at Wharton and then received an MFA from Yale — and her ongoing photographic series, Speculations, which we're featuring today, combines two of our favorite things: trompe l'oeil trickery and an explosion of beautiful botanicals.

Metaflora x West Elm faux anthurium

The Interiors Trend With More Staying Power Than Millennial Pink — And How to Incorporate It Into Your Own Home

Metaflora recently teamed up with West Elm to create a series of faux botanical bouquets — orchids mixed with fan palms, proteas mixed with banana leafs or feathers, and the ubiquitous anthurium opening its waxy shell against a huge, graphic palm frond. The bouquets look shockingly real — the ends of the palm leaves are even browned and frayed a bit to mimic decay — and are also a shockingly affordable way to bring a sense of drama into anyone's home.

In Copenhagen, The Flower Shop As Art Installation

Considering that floral art is the new medium of choice, it was only a matter of time before floral shops became art installations themselves. The new Tableau store in Copenhagen, founded by Danish florist Julius Værnes Iversen, was designed by Copenhagen-based architect David Thulstrup to resemble something more like a gallery, with six architectural podiums made for displaying single arrangements like art.
