Dispensary Design & Decor – Grass Monkey Cannabis

Cannabis dispensary design & decor is a rapidly growing subset of interior design. TreeScapes and PlantWorks had the chance to help one such establishment, Grass Monkey Cannabis Company, with their dispensary design and horticultural decorations.

 

Grass Monkey recently had their grand opening in South Portland, Maine, and we were called upon to bring some greenery to the space.

 

This was a fun project, because it let us be creative and work on new concepts. There were elements that we use frequently, like faux potted plants in baskets, and hanging vines.

 

Replica fiddle leaf fig trees are also popular, and we created a six-foot-tall version for them. It fit perfectly with all of the other replica plants inside.

 

There are other more unconventional elements, though. Replica boxwood hedges frame a spray paint rendering of a marijuana leaf. A monkey sculpture has a mohawk with our replica grass as his “hair”.

 

The statement piece is an artistic green wall of a monkey’s face, variegated with stripes of replica moss. This company did an amazing job at integrating their brand name into the decor!

 

Our contributions to the dispensary design joined other whimsical elements, like an oversized banana sculpture, and smaller monkey figurines climbing the walls.

 

The interior signage and art all feature graffiti elements, which capture the playful, unexpected, and urban look that Brass Monkey Cannabis Company epitomizes.

 

Dispensaries are a big business that are only growing as marijuana is legalized in more and more locations. That’s why dispensary design and decor is so important for cannabis companies.

 

If they want to become well-known, household names – or even obscure cult favorites – they need to be distinctive. They also have to appeal to their target audience, and the overall design has to make sense for their products.

 

Another challenge unique to this industry is the restrictions placed on exterior advertising. Many dispensaries across America are only allowed to decorate the inside of their space. Others can use exterior décor and signs, but they can’t actually reference cannabis or marijuana at all.

 

TreeScapes and PlantWorks are proud to help dispensaries with their decor and design needs. We have just about every variety of greenery that you can think of, and that includes replica cannabis!

 

You might wonder why a cannabis company would want artificial marijuana – especially when they sell real marijuana. It turns out that there are several compelling reasons why faux cannabis is the best choice for dispensaries.

 

Building regulations and federal laws can prohibit dispensaries from growing real cannabis, and the live plants can bring other complications when allowed. There’s a real risk of theft or damage to the plants by enthusiastic consumers.

 

Plus, cannabis plants are known to be sensitive and fickle. They require lots of care and attention, which may include special grow lamps, humidity control, or sterile environments.

 

With all of this in mind, it only makes sense to utilize fake cannabis for dispensaries! We’re happy to assist, with custom designs and products that celebrate hemp in its many forms. If you’re seeking assistance with cannabis dispensary design and decor, we’re here to help.

Artificial Green Wall for IPIC Theater

Artificial green walls were in high demand this year, and we’re expecting interest to continue growing. These non-living vertical gardens have some unique characteristics that make them especially great for commercial design and décor. Our recent creation, the Shuma Custom Vertical Garden for IPIC Theater, is a great example of a successful artificial green wall!

 

Hamid Hashemi, CEO and President of IPIC Entertainment, planned the theater’s artistic features from the beginning.

 

“The entire property is inspired by art,” Hashemi said. “We built the space around art.”

Our vertical garden is just one of many art pieces created for the theater:

 

“More than a dozen artists were commissioned to create site-specific work for the exteriors and interiors of the theater. On a wall in the lobby, vivid swatches of living* Spanish moss emerge from holes like the remnants of a buried forest, and artist Ernest Zacharevic painted the children that frolic among the foliage.”

*It’s actually preserved Spanish moss!

 

The wall features cozy cushioned nooks that are designed for seating, climbing, or lounging. Each nook has a background of preserved moss, along with replica ferns, Hosta plants, and tropical foliage. Zacharevic’s paintings add life and whimsy to this unique piece of mixed media art.  

 

One recent patron told the Palm Beach Post: “I love that wall. I think it is earthy, invigorating, and zen.” Another article by the Post provides more detail on the range of artwork inside the theater:

 

“Inside the lobby of the complex are five floor-to-ceiling murals, about 85-by-15 feet each.

 

Ahead of the opening, people took selfies in front of the artwork, inspired by Miami’s trendy Wynwood Art District.

 

“It’s really a sight,” said Michelle Soudry, a spokeswoman for the movie theater chain. “People are dropping in to see the incredible art.”

 

The modern exterior of the theater includes a “living wall” of vertical shrubbery.

 

“We always looked at building something that would become iconic in Delray Beach,” Hashemi said.

Green walls, living or artificial, appeal to humans because they connect us to nature. This is one of the core facets of biophilic design, which continues to gain in popularity. Custom vertical gardens and walls offer larger than life, aesthetically appealing displays that are perfect for today’s audiences.

 

A large installation, like the one we created for iPic Theater in DelRay Beach, is sure to impress. People naturally gravitate towards greenery, and a huge wall can make us feel fully immersed in the experience. The large scale also allows adults to feel like kids again. It takes us back to a time when everything around us was big, and life was simpler.

 

Another favorite feature of artificial green walls is how picturesque they are. Social media users seek out places with interesting backgrounds and features that will look great on social media. Many businesses are using this to their advantage, and designing “Instagrammable” exhibits or features.

 

It’s a savvy strategy that drives foot traffic and results in more online brand recognition online. Vertical gardens are also the perfect way to display your company name, logo, or custom message in a big way. Check out our artificial green wall gallery below for examples!

 

IPIC Entertainment has accomplished all of this and more with the design of their Delray Beach theater. Check out our image gallery below, and see a video (at right) that highlights this exciting new addition to the South Florida art scene.

Flower Walls & Olive Tree at CATCH Aria Las Vegas

Instagrammable Place: 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.”
