Lily Urban - Changing the face of faux, one pot at a time.
Lily Urban is a boutique, botanical inspired décor business that creates potted faux indoor plants & botanical accessories. Their designer potted faux plant collections are an essential homewares accessory for all people living crazy, busy lives who love a touch of indoor greenery.
Lily Urban are not your typical potted artificial plant business. They don't mass produce generic, fake looking plants in ordinary pots, they create botanical beauties that are uniquely different.....curated & made to order using only first class faux and each one comes styled in a beautiful, handmade vessel.
"It started with a home renovation….
Having completed a major extension, we continually had people unexpectedly dropping-in for a bit of a look and although the building was done, our fit-out wasn’t yet complete, we still needed furniture and other key pieces to make it a home. So to give it the quick lift it needed to make it more inviting, botanical's were my first thought!
With fresh flowers not lasting long, and knowing that the quality of artificial's had dramatically improved since 'my gran's days', I knew that this could be the thing to fill the void.
With many compliments from friends at my new faux botanical's (one even asked if they were from my garden!) and repeated queries about where I got them from, I looked into sourcing and started selling locally through word of mouth.
Fast forward a few years and house plants had started to explode in popularity, mainly because of our crazy, busy, urban lifestyles along with shrinking backyards and the growth in medium/high density apartment living. And all of these reasons meant the desire for indoor garden sanctuaries was on the rise.
Identifying a gap in the market for high-end potted faux botanical's, I turned my attention to plants. My idea was to create a designer potted faux botanical collection that appealed to people with an eye for quality.
Blown away by the life-like features of some species but hugely disappointed in the quality and style of vessels they were displayed in, I decided to source, curate and pot up my own... and so started my journey to 'change the face of faux, one pot at a time...'"
