Faux flowers and branches have gotten good enough to fool the experts (are you reading this, Sarah?). A couple of years ago, I spotted some eerily lifelike olive branches at  Pottery Barn  and decided to take the plunge. Here are some sources for similar branches: Above: An 18-inch-tall black Square Vase from Alex Marshall Studios filled with branches anchors the end of my kitchen counter. Photo for Refinery 29 by Maria del Rio. Above: The bendable stems make it possible to create a perfectly imperfect-looking arrangement. The painting of Provincetown is by Arthur Cohen . Photo by Matthew Williams for Remodelista. Above: A 33-inch synthetic Olive Branch stem is £29 from the Olive Tree. Above: A dozen 21-inch-long polyester Olive Branches is $69.90 from Earth Flora. Above: Crate & Barrel offers a lifelike-looking Potted Olive Tree with concrete container for $199. Have a look at our Design Sleuth posts for more great finds.
