Dried Flowers by Jolanda Arts

You’ll be wowed by these not-so-fresh fleurs.

Fake flowers? Thanks, but no thanks. Unfortunately, buying fresh blooms every week isn’t too realistic either. There is a third option: dried flower arrangements. But I always thought they would look too “country cottage” for my Chicago apartment. Then I discovered Chicago designer Jolanda Arts, who uses freeze-dried roses, birch, vine, pods, and bark. Growing up in the Netherlands, Arts developed a love for clean lines and simple designs (in other words, no frilly cottage-inspired looks here). See her current inventory on her Etsy site or email her an idea for a custom design and she’ll whip it up for you.
