Pincode to view SUSHISAMBA tree on TreeScapes' Pinterest board

The SUSHISAMBA Tree has become one of London’s most Instagrammable hotspots – and it was proudly constructed by a team of our talented artisans!

 

This towering custom-made oak tree sits at the center of the outdoor bar 38 floors above the city of London. This magnificent tree features the eye-catching and extremely distinctive SUSHISAMBA Orange coloring that embellishes its massive trunk, complex branching, broad foliage, and seemingly endless array of twinkling lights.
 
 
This iconic restaurant and our team are currently hard at work on a new and even bigger tree that will adorn the new SUSHISAMBA that will soon open in Saudi Arabia.

 

Here’s how the SUSHISAMBA website describes the London tree:

 

“Indoor-outdoor elements weave throughout the space, most notably, the structural orange tree on the west terrace. A SUSHISAMBA icon, the tree sculpture reinforces the earth-to-sky motif while being an artwork in itself, reminiscent of great 20th century art and creating dialogue with the street art found throughout the space.”

SUSHISAMBA London City

 

The rest of London – and the world – has definitely taken notice.

 

TheHandbook.com published their list of “The 18 Most Instagrammable Festive Restaurants”, and the SUSHISAMBA tree is the favorite backdrop for selfies and group shots:

 

“You probably feel like you’ve been to SushiSamba even if you never have. The second venue on the list of most Instagrammed places in London, SushiSamba serves sushi and cocktails *almost* as photogenic as the view – well, London from the 38th floor is pretty spectacular.

 

The fairylit red tree on the terrace is the most popular photo, although the restaurant itself is pretty spectacular, especially at night.”

 

Hello! magazine has even declared SUSHISAMBA London as “the A-listers’ favourite fusion restaurant“:

 

“The open terrace-bar, with a magical lit-up tree perched in the middle of the circular bar that has you reaching for your camera phone, and the cool buzzy atmosphere, is also not to be missed…”

 

Need more convincing? Some think the tree would look right at home on the set of a favorite HBO series…imagine the photo opportunities!

 

In an article titled “The Most Instagrammable Restaurants in London”, the Evening Standard UK says you should go to SUSHISAMBA “for that giant orange tree that looks like it’s from Game of Thrones”.

L'Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree

L’Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree

L'Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree

We’re pleased to present the award-winning L’Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree, on display at their flagship New York shop. We provided the custom fabricated tree that is now part of the immersive concept store. 

 

The entire shop was created to be experimental and disruptive – a new way to engage shoppers who are used to buying things online. The interactive elements include a rain shower sink, free hand massages, virtual reality headsets, and a trio of yellow bikes in front of a Provencial French backdrop. Selfie opportunities are everywhere – including the L’Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree by TreeScapes!

 

Olives trees are an important component of the L’Occitane brand. Olives are one of their five main product ingredients, along with lavender, verbena, almonds, and immortelle. L’Occitane sources only authentic, local products that are grown in the Provence area of France.

 

The symbolism is so important to L’Occitane that the brand uses a specific olive tree from the Valensole Farm (in Provence) as a signature element in their branding. It’s even featured on their shopping bags!

Award Winning L’Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree

The store’s design and components have already won multiple awards, including Retail Design Institute’s 2018 Store of the Year.

 

“L’Occitane en Provence’s experiential store on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue was named as the Institute’s 2018 Store of the Year. The 1,870-sq.-ft. space is rich in experiences and is designed to be more agile and disruptive, with plenty of Instagrammable and interactive moments. Customers can explore brand history and signature products through ever-changing – and interactive — installations that echo the Provencal lifestyle…

 

Recognizing the team’s effort to elevate the customer experience, the judging panel not only unanimously voted L’Occitane Fifth Avenue as Store of Year, but also honored it with an Experiential Innovation Award for customer engagement.”

And the Store of the Year is…

 

L’Occitane’s Fifth Avenue store also named as the 2018 Spectrum Award Project Winner, and included on Insider Trends list of “31 of the World’s Best Brand Homes”.  We’re proud to have our tree featured there, and we love what the press has been saying about it:

 

“Other features include:

•A “rain-shower” sink: customers can test-and-play with products beneath a shower of water from an illuminated canopy above

•A curved communal bench set beneath the canopy of an “awe-inspiring” Mediterranean Olive tree.”

L’Occitane aims for a more immersive, more disruptive flagship

 

“Adjacent to the sink is a curved communal bench is set at the base of a Mediterranean Olive Tree. Here, guests are invited to sit under the tree canopy and be transported to the lavender field of Provence via VR headsets.”

Spectrum Awards Winner’s Book

 

Our L’Occitane Mediterranean Olive Tree is so realistic that it fools many into thinking it’s a real living tree! We can’t think of a better compliment on our design and creation…

 

“The store has a nice mix of the natural and the high-tech. There’s a live tree in the center of the store, and there are also lots of interactive tools and displays, including a virtual reality headset that can make you feel that you’re in a lavender field in Provence.”

Mediterranean Olive Trees from TreeScapes and PlantWorks are some of our most popular creations. We used them recently for two different projects in Las Vegas: CATCH restaurant at Aria Resort & Casino, and Vanderpump Cocktail Gardens at Caesar’s Palace.

Faux Bougainvillea & Succulents at Shaquille’s

What do faux bougainvillea flowers have in common with basketball? They’re both featured at basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal’s newest restaurant!

 

Shaquille’s opened in early 2019, and TreeScapes and PlantWorks provided faux bougainvillea flowers, succulents, and ivy.

 

It’s very easy to identify Shaq’s restaurant at first sight. There’s a bright purple SHAQUILLE’S sign, and a huge set of double doors. They’re tall enough to accommodate Shaq’s considerable (7’1) height. 

 

Our beautiful faux bougainvillea flowers cover the entire wall next to the front doors. You can peek through, but this patio offers guests plenty of privacy as they dine. Inside you can find rows of market lights, which add warmth and ambiance.

 

“If you enjoy people watching, patio dining along the LA Live promenade is an ideal place. A mesh wall of flowers hides the seating area so you can do so discreetly. The restaurant also offers a place for celebrity guests wanting a bit more privacy.”

Southern Comfort Meets Los Angeles Chic

The decor for this restaurant is especially important, because it addresses two different themes: Los Angeles and the South.

 

Shaquille’s is right across the street from the Staples Center, and part of the Downtown L.A. Live complex. The area is frequented by NBA players, celebrities, and tons of basketball fans. It’s the ideal location for a huge sports star like Shaq!

 

This location means that his restaurant has to capture that Southern California, casual glam aesthetic. 

 

The other side, though, is the cuisine and atmosphere. The chefs serve up authentic and elevated Southern cooking. Menu options include comfort food classics like shrimp and grits, baked macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs, and fried green tomatoes.

 

The designer had to create a space that felt comfortable, cozy, and welcoming – even amidst the hustle and bustle of LA.

Inside Shaq’s LA Restaurant

The inside of Shaquille’s boasts even more of our creations – fake Kentia palms, lillies, and potted plants. Assorted faux succulents add more lush greenery the walls and interior.

 

Other highlights include a celebrity seating area and a massive, Shaq-sized chair. Look for it when you’re there, because Shaq is known to stop by regularly! 

 

If you’re wondering what to eat, Shaquille’s has some can’t-miss signature dishes. His famous fried chicken, for example, is brined for 48 hours. Be sure to try the classic Shaq Burger, made with American cheese and signature Shaq sauce. There’s even a Kobe burger! It’s made with Kobe beef and named in homage to his former teammate, Kobe Bryant.

Next time you’re in Los Angeles, stop by Shaquille’s! You can enjoy delicious food, and check out what we’ve done there. We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Las Vegas flower wall Revolve x Palms

Las Vegas Flower Wall – Revolve x Palms

Las Vegas flower walls are always impressive, and our creation at the Revolve shop in the Palms Casino is no exception! We used artificial roses, peonies, hydrangeas, ferns, and other florals to create a lush, iconic display.

 

Revolve only has one other physical location, the Revolve Social Club in Los Angeles. So this “long term pop up” retail shop needed to wow visitors who are used to shopping online. The Grand Opening event gained immediate attention from the press. There were models, designers, and celebrities present for the big launch!

 

The store celebrates its grand opening Friday and its 1,000 square feet of merchandise from brands such as company-owned labels Lovers + Friends, Tularosa and Grlfrnd. The company’s only other public-facing storefront is its Revolve Social Club on Melrose Avenue, although that door is focused mostly on private events and VIP experiences rather than serving as a full-time store for the public.

Raissa Gerona, Revolve chief brand officer, called the store a “long-term pop-up,” adding, “Palms is the perfect partner to bring the full Revolve experience to Vegas.”

Vanderpump Cocktail Garden Flowers Trees

Vanderpump Cocktail Garden Flowers & Trees

Have you visited the new Vanderpump Cocktail Garden? Flowers, trees, and beautiful lighting create an intimate, classy gathering space. Fans of the Vanderpump family, and their reality show, will love the immersive experience. But everyone will enjoy a visit because there are tasty treats and hand-crafted cocktails to try!

 

The Vanderpump Cocktail Garden flowers, foliage, and trees were provided by TreeScapes and PlantWorks. This includes the “incredibly life-like hand-carved” replica olive trees, decadent faux English roses, and industrial design wall greenery.

Press Quotes about Vanderpump Cocktail Garden

Lisa Vanderpump brings her “diamonds and rose” renown to the new cocktail garden in totally resplendent style.

 

The LA restaurant and lounge queen comes to Caesars Palace for the new nightspot that’s as much botanical as it is industrial in style.

 

Tall trees and stone tables, sparkling lights and sips alike create the freshest atmosphere for the most charmed night out.”

 

Enchantment at the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden

Vanderpump Cocktail Garden Flowers Interior

Nestled between the Colosseum and the entrance to The Forum Shops, the Cocktail Garden has an indoor-outdoor design, with 14-foot lantern-adorned trees and greenery surrounding its patio and lounge, creating an idyllic getaway from the sounds of ringing slot machines.

 

“It has always been a dream of mine to see our brand in lights in this vibrant city,” the reality queen boasts.

 

“[The Garden] will combine the sexy atmosphere of our other establishments, but injected with Vegas energy!”

 

That, coupled with a drink menu that features Vanderpump-branded sangria and rosé, is likely to land the Cocktail Garden on this year’s list of hot new meetup destinations.”

Flower Wall Tunnel Entrance CATCH Aria Las Vegas

TreeScapes and PlantWorks created a stunning fabricated olive tree at CATCH Las Vegas, located within the Aria Resort & Casino. The tree joined whimsical faux floral green walls and unique flowered birdcage accent pieces.

 

A huge Grand Opening event was thrown to celebrate the launch of the restaurant’s newest location. Our artificial flower and tree designs set the perfect ambiance for this chic eatery. The press quotes below discuss how our flower wall tunnel and faux Mediterranean Olive Tree at CATCH are the decor highlights!

 

The premiere was a star-studded event, full of A-List celebrities. Professional models in vibrant floral costumes and makeup added even more beauty. The menu features fresh steaks, sushi, and seafood, along with specialty cocktails and decadent desserts.

 

“As guests traverse through the picturesque entryway – a surreal, 80-foot-long tunnel-like pergola, offset by twinkling trellises and colorful blooming walls, it almost feels like stepping into a secret garden or hidden world…

 

The contemporary, nature-inspired feel is most evident in the main dining room. The centerpiece is the iconic olive tree standing at the middle of the room beneath its own glass roof.”
