The Fantastic Faux Fiddle-Leaf Fig

We were surprised to hear during the Atlanta gift show that the fiddle-leaf fig is the “it” tree for 2016… especially since we’ve been selling our faux version of ficus lyrata since 2010.  First seen in Celerie Kemble’s beautiful “lady’s study” at the 2011 Kips Bay Decorator Show House, our faux figs have graced many rooms, as well as the pages of top shelter magazines.

A native to western Africa, this versatile tree has a fresh, modern look that complements every style of decor and environment.  And while fresh fiddle-leaf figs can be quite finicky (note that they are members of the ficus family and we have yet to meet a real ficus that can survive our black thumbs!), ours have the added advantage of never dying.

Designers love our trees, not only for their realism (they’re made with natural wood trunks and branches – only the leaves are faux) but also for their ease of maintenance.  If kept out of direct sunlight and dusted often, no one will know the truth!  Sometimes faux is the way to go…
