What’s New Wednesday: Preserved Moss Centerpieces
June 28, 2017 in What's New Wednesday | no comments

Our new preserved moss centerpieces are one of our favorite ways to decorate a table. They are also a stylish accessory that adds life to your decor. Custom built in Charlotte, NC, the preserved moss centerpieces add earthiness, greenery and texture to any room they call home. We have a few different styles in the store to choose from.

First, our moss in a light reclaimed wood trough is classic and timeless. It can be used as a chic centerpiece all year. As an added benefit, it has a low profile and will not block any views across the table. It is also a great piece to introduce to built-ins or a console for added texture and warmth.

All of the moss featured today is preserved. The rich green color of the moss pops against an all neutral background or can stand alone against a room with vibrant color.

Why does the moss look so real? That’s because it is! All of the moisture has been removed and replaced with glycerin, a natural and environmentally friendly substance. It leaves the moss looking supple, natural looking, and prevents any further drying. Below is a close-up of the moss. This moss trough is 27 W x 11 D x 8 H and sells for $479.99.

The moss trough featured above is also available in a darker wood option. It offers all the same features and price point. It is a suitable alternative if you want a centerpiece that contrasts against your lighter tabletops or surfaces.

Also, new to the store is a round potted moss centerpiece in a light wood bowl. It adds a certain softness that we love. The light wood paint on the round trough mimics the look of stone, which adds to its allure.

The bowl can be used alone on a round breakfast table or paired with other accessories on a coffee table for an earthy aesthetic. The sturdy bowls feature the same preserved moss as the other centerpieces featured today.

The stone bowl with lush green moss is 18 W x 18 D x 7 H and sells for $459.99.

Our preserved moss centerpieces require minimal effort to care for. To preserve the beauty and life of your centerpiece, keep the greenery away from direct sunlight or high humidity areas. A can of compressed air can occasionally be used to blow off any dust. Proper care will allow your arrangement to last for years!

As a reminder we will be closed next Tuesday, July 4th, in observance of the 4th of July holiday.
