A rose is a rose is a rose… and depending on who created it (Clare Potter? Livia Cetti? Tommy Mitchell?), a faux rose can be made of paper, porcelain or even metal. After Avi Steinberg wrote a letter of recommendation for fake flowers in The New York Times Magazine (yeah, Avi!), we’ve seen more and more press on the variety of faux flowers out there.
From the versions that we use made of high end poly-cottons that mimick the shape and feel of a petal or leaf to perfection (we call them “nature’s twins”) to the ones Livia Cetti makes out of paper, there’s a material to fit all tastes.
For those who still need convincing that faux flowers can be exquisite, take a look at these!
