“Living” Walls – for your Home, Office, or Next Event!
Living walls are making their way into popular events. The most recent and prolific living wall used in an event was for the 2014 Governor’s Ball at the Oscars. Take a look at the stunning stage backdrop!
Another prolific use of vertical living walls and set pieces was at the Dior Haute Couture show at Paris Fashion Week that was created from one million fresh flowers!
The concept of architectural living walls was created in 1938 and made a resurgence in the late 80s. They are now back with a vengeance and looking better then ever. Architects have long used living walls for aesthetic purposes, as they provide an immediate calming and soothing effect. Real living walls also have positive environmental impacts to the buildings and spaces that they are built in. However, real living walls can be quite complicated to maintain and construct and for anyone looking to recreate this beautiful décor concept, artificial plants are a brilliant alternative. Maintenance is very easy as there is no need to worry about access to water, proper light, or nutrients. Other aspects that make artificial greenery perfect for creating “living” walls is that they are much easier to transport and the design customizations are endless.
Here at Greenscape, we have been creating all kinds of interesting living and natural vertical garden and wall ideas from lush, flowering, crystal-laden wedding walls to minimalist and linear succulent and bamboo options. Take a look at some of our creations!
