Houseplants
Leaf begonia

The leaf begonia has tough, velvety leaves. This look makes the begonia perfect for this Trend Collection, where we see many tough, constructive materials. The begonia has beautiful leaf patterns in silver, pink, burgundy or green. And when the light change, there's always a new colour to be discoverd in its leaves! Want to experience this yourself? Then discover this continuous plant pattern on the wall. 

Cambria

With its special flowers and graceful green stems, the Cambria is a beautiful sight. This special orchid has a rich symbolism (beauty, wealth, love and power), and a low-maintenance character. This makes her a perfect housemate, one you will definitely want to bring into your home this season! Not just to enjoy its beauty, but also to create a deliciously fragrant house perfume

Grasses

The enormous variety of species makes grasses suitable for many different spaces and applications. You can use them perfectly in an indoor border or as a natural art object, for example. With their lush appearance and neutral colours, they give your interior a natural look that fits in perfectly with this season's style trend. 

Primula

With its colourful flowers and sturdy leaves, Primula, also known as the primrose, provides mountains of optimism. This winter flower is a symbol of a new beginning, growth and hope. And did you know that Primula has a slightly aniseed-like flavour, which makes it ideal for use in dishes such as these delicious pancakes?

Peace Lily

The stylish peace lily is characterised by its dark green leaves with brilliant white flowers above. The plant is resilient and easy to care for, making maintenance simple. This in combination with its air-purifying qualities makes it a valuable addition to the Trend Collection and to your interior. Use it as a green room divider, for example!     

Alocasia

Alocasia, also known as elephant ear, is known for its large leaves. The plant conquered many living rooms since the 50s and deserves a place in the Trend Collection with its vintage vibe and beautiful green leaves. The longer you look, the more you see about this plant, and that is why we invite you to a mindfulness master class with this impressive specimen. 

Garden plants
Grasses

Do you think of grasses as green blades in the garden? Think again! Grasses come in many different colours, shapes and sizes. What they have in common is their soothing appearance and natural look. And how beautiful is it when the wind makes them dance? In short, they are a valuable addition to the Trend Collection. The proof is in the outdoor border!

Winter violas

The heart-shaped, sunny faces of violas in your garden can't be beaten. Pansies are also very long-lasting and bring light to a somewhat bleak winter garden. That makes them an ideal garden companion, and a welcome addition to the Trend Collection!

Holly

The holly, or Ilex, is a real autumn beauty. The plant immediately catches the eye with its shiny, spiky leaves, often with bright red berries. The holly is a slow grower, but a plant for life which becomes more beautiful every year. A perfect match with the sustainable and environmentally conscious character of the Trend Collection! Bring this beauty inside and use the holly in a green wreath for the house. 

Dwarf Cypress

The dwarf cypress, or Chamaecyparis, is a handsome plant that grows in the form of a narrow column. The plant is an eye-catcher on its own or in a hedge. Dwarf cypress remains green all year round, but is especially popular in winter because of the Christmas feeling it evokes. Want to experience that Christmas feeling yourself?
