Instagram is an ideal barometer for spotting trends. From the latest restaurant to the new It-shoe, spotting something across multiple accounts is sure to solidify it as a trend du jour. Case in point: the newest favorite flower of seemingly every florist, the anthurium. Beloved by florists such as BRRCH, Putnam & Putnam and Fox Fodder Farm, it's a little alien in its appearance, and looks almost like a lily. "Anthuriums are amazing because they immediately add an architectural and structural element to any arrangement," says Fox Fodder Farm's Taylor Patterson. "I love the contrast that comes from mixing them with softer or even weedier elements. The juxtaposition of textures is really interesting."
They're also the perfect addition to any arrangement that needs a little boldness. "Anthuriums provide an interesting contrast to the soft, romantic, textural florals that Saipua gravitates towards. They add a masculine, structural moment, grounding what can be gratuitously romantic, ephemeral, wispy flowers," comments Brooklyn-based florist Saipua's founding director, Sarah Ryhanen. Add them to your bouquet.
