What look rivals the symbiotic combination of tropical house plant and equatorial parquet floors, in contemporary interior design? This home in Greenwich executes the look flawlessly.
The selection here is Ficus Elastica aka the Rubberplant, in tandem with Iroko parquet. Iroko is native to the tropical coast of West Africa and Rubberplant can be found growing wild in the Amazonian rainforests of South America. However this Iroko block specifically was salvaged from a Catholic Cathedral in Middlesborough.
Nevertheless our house plant seems perfectly at home in this Greenwich interior. All tied together with a distinctly practical British G-Plan sideboard, Czech glass, contemporary lighting and a Georgian, red velvet upholstered prie dieu chair.
