In this case you’ll be amazed at the great variety that exists: palm trees (to give a tropical touch), hedges, ferns, ivy (eg hanging, etc.). You can find them in small sizes (tabletop) or to the floor. Just be careful, the larger the plant, its artificiality is more apparent, so in this case you should care much more quality.

If you want to achieve an oriental or minimalist, Karina we recommend the use of sticks or bamboo cane. But, beware, be combined with the style of furniture to not break the harmony. Artificial bonsai trees are also a nice option, but can be a bit expensive.

These stand out and add a natural look to any corner where it is placed.
