Floral arrangements get a contemporary renovation
Who says that the botanical beautification of our interiors must take the form of bunches of flowers arranged classically in gaping vases? Designers are increasingly rethinking the way we style our stems. japan-based Studio note and Italian designer Sara ricciardi have made a number of sculptural stands that allow flowers and fronds to become extensions of the piece, shunning the traditional reservoir of water, and allowing the vegetation to become a building block of the living sculpture. other designers currently framing flowers innovatively include tino Seubert, Katia tolstykh, Davide Aquini and brooksbank & Collins.
