Do you love bringing the outdoors in but struggle to keep houseplants alive? You're certainly not alone. But worry no more because the new Sophie Allport faux flower collection is the perfect solution for a pretty interiors refresh - without the maintenance.
You can give your home super-chic and easy makeover the new range, which boasts all of our favourite blooms, from tulips to hydrangeas, as well as foliage and houseplants.
Inspired by nature and the quintessential British countryside, the new collection is available this week and is a first for the brand, complementing Sophie’s existing collections of homewares and accessories.
The new flower range handpicked by Sophie personifies a delicately beautiful style, perfect for any modern country home.
Sophie Allport explained: “We are best known for our kitchen and dining homewares so we’re very excited to launch a collection which complements our existing ranges, yet brings a whole new lease of life to people's homes all year round.
“The great thing about faux flowers is they require such minimal maintenance, a dust here and there, and they look beautiful all the time.”
The faux flower collection will include a range of stems and sprays, so you can make your very own arrangements, bouquets or statement pieces including their favourite flowers and foliage.
The collection includes the classic white garden rose, peony stems, green and white hydrangeas, tulips, eucalyptus sprays, pussy willow, skimmia sprays and much more, as well as a potted fern and potted hellebore.
Visit sophieallport.com or the Stamford High Street Shops or Bourne Outlet Shop, both of which will be open to the public on 1 July 2020. Happy flower arranging!
