In today’s blog article we will be discussing some products that have not been talked about yet in previous posts. At Commercial Silk International we have tried hard each year to expand our product line so that the scope of what we offer covers everything any interior designer or architect would need. We have gone from selling simple birch trees to supplying Disney with large faux phoenix palms. There is a sense of pride when you can offer an extensive array of options to a client, and especially when they are having trouble finding what they need and have exhausted most every option. With most projects we can fill the orders easy since they are coming to us with basic requests that have been filled many times before. For some projects there are many special requests that take more time and energy to come up with. Because of these unique projects we have been able to widen our horizons and provide more of a personalized approach to many clients. The basics we provide are the boxwood foliage products: boxwood hedges, mats, screens rolls, and green walls. Others include; faux sago palms, phoenix palms, birch trees, and other tropical trees. All of our main foliages are big time sellers and have been for years since we began to produce artificial plant products. Now that we know exactly what the common products we sell are, we can now look into these specialty products.
1. Artificial Bark Sheets
These are one of most unique products that can be used in almost any situation that requires some sort of industrial grade bark. What these mostly are used for is covering pillars in museums or retail store displays (Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shop) because they are easy to install and very durable. These bark sheets are hyper realistic and we have gone through great lengths to make sure these provide authenticity to whatever setting you place it in. With these artificial bark sheets you can cover any amount of area you need and have it last for the long run. With more any more people switching to artificial trees these are becoming a very popular addition to the design process. Bark sheets can also be used in smaller chunks to provide realism to an already established landscape. With these sheets you do not have to worry about fire codes for the interior design project because they have our patented ThermaLeaf® technology.
2. Artificial logs
Another specialty item that can be used in almost any situation are the artificial logs we provide. These are special made for large construction and design projects that need them for a landscape settings. They are molded with extreme delicacy just like our artificial tree bark sheets. They are molded then hand-painted by our experienced manufacturers. After that, these logs are then impregnated with our fire-retardant chemicals from our patented technology ThermaLeaf®. With these logs you can create an effective and realistic landscape or whatever project you are designing. These work well in museums, exhibits, and large outdoor retailers. With these faux tree logs strewn across a outdoor setting you are making it that much more realistic. It is easy to see how these are specialty items, but also are key to making any type of woodland setting really look authentic. Authenticity is what is most important, and with these faux logs you can make any setting that much more real.
3. Artificial tree stumps
Much like the faux tree logs, these artificial tree stumps are an accessory piece that will make every setting seem that much more real. When designers choose to go the artificial route with their plants, trees, and hedges they are taking a risk of having a design that looks too fake. With these specialty artificial tree stumps. The stumps offer a unique wilderness ambiance with their detailed ridges, knots, and hideaway holes. Tree trunk varieties include oak, cedar, pine, and maple. With these stumps you can have them specially made for outdoor or indoor use. With outdoor stumps you may be interested in our PermaLeaf® technology that protects them from harsh UV sun rays that can be damaging and fade the material. These tree stumps are very much the center of attention when placed inside of a specific setting. The larger the landscape the more authenticity is needed to keep clients and guests enthralled by the design. With artificial tree stumps you have a product that is built to last and adds that extra bit of “realness” that quite honestly can’t be matched.
4. Decorative Branches
Decorative branches are some of the most important pieces of what we sell. With so many people having a wide array of preferences when it comes to designs we have made a plethora of decorative branches to be used in all types of landscape settings. We have many different varieties of faux bamboo poles that are very popular amongst many of our clients. We have everything from the natural brown bamboo poles to the more common green bamboo poles. We also carry items such as the popular birch tree branches, that are a hit among regular homeowners and designers looking for a more rustic setting. Birch poles have that amazing woodland look with their white bark that is easily recognizable. We also carry cedar poles that are an all-natural wood and have finely defined details. Another very popular specialty product we carry is our stick and twig art. With these products you can hang them wherever and have a unique design that is sure to last. These have been growing in popularity for some time now and many interior designers use them so it has become one of our more commonly requested products.
These specialty products are great additions that can be used in most any design. With the increased emphasis on artificial landscapes looking as real as possible, these products are key to making that a reality. Again, these can all be custom made just like the rest of our product line so do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our sales reps immediately to discuss pricing.
