RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023

After so much success at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022, it was so wonderful to be invited back to the 2023 show with a new design and fresh idea. This year our design was centred around an old metal bin, with a focus on sustainability.

WOVEN TRANQUILLITY

Our oversized vase piece boasts a neutral, understated colour scheme and is based around an old metal bin. The bin, once holding rubbish, now plays a vital role as the core of this design which was made up of over 500 stems.

The hand woven vase mirrors the warm tones, allowing glimpses into the core through natural gaps in the weave. Jute wrapped tubes link the floral element to the willows natural hues below.

This year we are sponsored by VD Export who import the freshest florals directly from Holland to our studio each week! VD works directly with growers to ensure they provide high quality flowers and a flawless service,

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022

It was a huge privilege to be designing at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022 and such an honour to receive a Silver Medal. We put months of hard work into creating something that we feel matches the theme and showcases our work and creative style.

In this dining experience, immersed in nature, flowers grow through the raw wood table, promoting horticulture with young fruit and vegetables emerging. Seasonal florals in pinks, purples and blues, with flashes of bold colour keep a naturalistic and balanced display. The tablescape is surrounded by trellises and a pergola, draped with the colours and textures of fresh florals and foliage. Above the tablescape hangs a candelabra entwined with moss and climbing plants, adorned with dried elements.

We haven’t been able to do this alone, and must thank our amazing team:

Rachel Kennedy and Xue Wang: Team Acacia! Design, Florals and Project managers.

Alasdair Malloch: Carpentry (and fulfilling all our ridiculous wood related requests!)

Jenny Cobb: Ceramicist who entered into our vision and handcrafted the perfect complementary tableware.

David Smyth (Albion Timber): Our wonderful timber provider and sponsor.
