When we have the chance to create not one but three Moss Art pieces for a company like Lending Tree, you know we are doing a happy dance. Not just because of the work, but because this company sees the value in bringing plants/moss into a workspace. It truly transforms a space.
Moss Art is a perfect way for companies to bring a green, plant element inside without any of the maintenance. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE plants and know that there is certainly a place for them in the workplace, but our Moss Art is such a great alternative because it requires zero maintenance. None! No water, sunlight or drainage required during buildout. No expensive ongoing maintenance packages. All of our moss is real, it is just preserved. It truly is a thing of wonder.
Now back to that company and this amazing job we’re talking about – Lending Tree! Lending Tree is “an online loan marketplace for various financial borrowing needs including auto loans, small business loans, personal loans, credit cards, and more….Together, these services serve as an ally for consumers who are looking to comparison shop among multiple businesses and professionals who will compete for their business.” (Lendingtree.com) They recently opened their new corporate headquarters in the Historic South End neighborhood of Charlotte, and this space is gorgeous! Their incredible team included Southwood Corporation who handled all of their signage and brought us into the equation.
We were hired to create three custom Moss Art pieces for the space, each unique in their concept and design. The first was the Lending Tree Logo made in preserved reindeer moss. We were able to use a variety of colors to complement the brand colors as well as the interior design.
The second piece was an homage to the Queen City. A 4’ tall CLT with the Lending Tree Leaf also made of preserved reindeer moss. This lichen is great because it offers beautiful coloring as well as sound absorption properties.
The third piece was a 10’ wide x 9’ tall “Breathe” wall made with preserved sheet/flat moss, Mood/pillow moss and reindeer moss. The moss was placed within a structure that Southwood Corporation built. The grandeur of the Moss Art is what stuck with us. It is simple yet so impactful.
Congrats to the Lending Tree team on the new office. And thank you for embracing our fun, custom art as a part of your interior design package. Learn more about our offerings and how we can bring some life into your work environment
We had the pleasure of creating four Moss Art Walls for Bank of America Corporate Center in Uptown Charlotte. Each wall incorporated three shades of preserved reindeer moss, creating a unique green element in this corporate office setting.
The collaboration for these maintenance-free plant walls came from Little Diversified Architectural Consulting, an international architecture and design firm, as well as a talented team of millworkers at Onsite Woodwork Corporation. The four moss art walls had to be able to uniquely stand on their own and at the same time create a cohesive look across the Bank of America floor. We are obsessed with how these dimensional walls turned out.

This Moss Art is called “The Park” and it requires no-maintenance.
The fourth Moss Art Wall for BofA is called Courtyard.
The use of biophilic design in the office setting not only is aesthetically pleasing, but it brings a calm element to workers. Biophilic Design is a concept used within the building industry to increase occupant connectivity to the natural environment through the use of direct nature, indirect nature, and space and place conditions. Our Moss Art is the perfect way to bring this concept to life. The beauty of our work is that it brings that natural element inside without all of the hassle. Our moss requires no water source, no sunlight and no expensive ongoing maintenance. Just hang it and enjoy!
These four Moss Art Walls, named The Plaza, Greenway, Park and Courtyard, had some varying levels of moss to showcase dimension in the design. Our green plant walls were part of a larger renovation for the Bank of America Corporate Executive Suite. This work can be found in Charlotte, NC.

One thing we really appreciate about the Sightline team is their attention to excellence. From their website, “We believe a project’s success is taking every detail into consideration before the product is approved for fabrication. Smooth installations and finishes are not a product of luck and should not be decided on site, a smooth install requires proper planning and coordination.” We can get behind that kind of commitment!
Our custom Moss Art signs are made with so much care and love and that allows us to stay motivated to keep creating. And when we see our clients happy it truly is one of the best feelings. We are excited to keep following the Sightline journey.
Queen City Animal Hospital (QCAH) is one of the most modern and beautifully designed veterinary offices we’ve ever seen. By rehabilitating an old grocery store in the Belmont neighborhood of Charlotte, NC, the team behind QCAH has been able to preserve a bit of history while created a new and stunning space.
Our team was contracted to bring some greenery into the lobby space of this vet clinic. Through a collaboration between the interior designer, our creative team and our woodworkers, 8Lincoln30, we were able to create a one-of-a-kind Moss Art partition wall. And it is gorgeous!
This Moss Wall is double sided and framed so that every visitor gets the moss experience while they are waiting with their fur babies. 8Lincoln30 did a great job of creating the wood base and metal rods that hold the preserved moss. Beyond the visual look of the Moss Wall, our preserved moss has a natural sounds absorbing quality to help the acoustics in the room. And the best part – it requires no maintenance. There is no need to sunlight, drainage or water. The Moss Wall will maintain its beauty for years to come.
MOSS ART LOGO
We also had the opportunity to create a custom logo for Queen City Animal Hospital. We love the logo that their team created. It’s a great play on a dog’s paw print and the Queen City crown. By using our darker, forest green moss on the logo, we are able to balance out the greens in the space. We also love how the aluminum lettering turned out on the reclaimed wood wall. Seriously, this space has so many amazing design elements.
ABOUT THE ANIMAL HOSPITAL
Queen City Animal Hospital is now accepting patients of all kinds. They offer a ton of services, including wellness & preventative care, surgical services, exotic pet medicine, telemedicine, laser therapy and emergency care. Read more about it here.

Our Moss Art offerings have grown and evolved over time. We started out making custom moss logos, and now we are working hand-in-hand with interior designers and architects to include Moss Art into the plans for new buildings. Recently, our friends over at Southpark Interiors hired us to create two gradient Moss Walls for a luxury apartment complex.
Three30Five is a newly remodeled apartment in South End and they have lot of great things to offer residents. Check out some of their amenities. We LOVED creating the Three30Five Moss Walls for their upstairs lounge area. Since our moss is preserved, there is no need for any ongoing maintenance; no watering, no sunlight, no drainage needed.
These Moss Art walls were a labor of love from our team. Measuring 3′ x 8′ and 5′ x 8′, our team was able to conquer the gradient pattern throughout the entire piece. Check it out.

As our moss offerings continue to expand, we look forward to all of the creativity that it will unleash in us. The possibilities truly are endless. Our approach to using preserved moss is to create pieces that are modern, pop art. Lot of fun colors and designs. Stay tuned for all of the fun upcoming projects we have in the works!
Preserved Moss Logo for Charlotte’s Local Media Source
Charlotte Agenda is a popular news source here in Charlotte, NC. It is the brainchild of Ted Williams and Katie Levans. According to their credo, “The Agenda exists to make Charlotte smarter and better connected,” and they do this with a daily newsletter, their website, Instagram & the annual City Guide. Watching their team grow and evolve into the pulse of the Queen City has been incredible.
We were honored when Cristina Wilson (President / Partner) and Abby Clark (Operations Manager) approached us to create the Charlotte Agenda logo in moss for their brand new office. And the best part was that it was a surprise for Ted, Katie and the rest of the staff. The talented Marissa Wilson of Artful Interiors was responsible for the interior design of their new space at Gather Wilmore (529 W. Summit Ave. Charlotte, NC). We quietly worked on this 4’ wide piece in our studio while the office was built out.
When the day finally came for installation, we gathered our team and headed to the new Agenda Headquarters. Getting to see the bare bones of this office was a treat. We know what it takes to get a business up and running and we could just feel the excitement in the air. Our Moss Art accompanied a gorgeous handmade table by Rosewood Co. Seriously, if you haven’t heard of Rosewood Co or Janine Bithell before, check out her Instagram.

Modern, Farmhouse Style Sign Made of Preserved Moss
We had the pleasure of creating a custom Moss Art sign for Adam Fiorenza and his team at byFiorenza Communities. This developer specializes in modern farmhouse Homes in the Charlotte area. They have properties coming soon to Steele Creek, Matthews, Mint Hill and Rock Hill neighborhoods.
Our friends at 8Lincoln30, local Charlotte woodworkers, helped us craft this beauty. This piece is 6.5’ wide with the logo sitting at 6’ in beautiful forest green moss. We love the finished product. Check out some of the photos below.

Proud owners of a new Moss Art sign!
All of our work is completely custom. That means that every time a client approaches us we are likely crafting a new way to display our Moss Art – and that is fun and challenging at the same time. This project was no different. Since “communities” was so small in relation to the logo, we had to get creative and use an epoxy fill to complete the sign. We think it turned out great! Sleek, sexy and the perfect addition to this modern, farmhouse style design.
If you are interested in having us create a unique piece of art or signage for your company, give us a shout. We would love to bring your vision to life through nature.
Custom Moss Art for 49er Annual Giving #NinerNationGives
We’ve had the pleasure of working with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte for several years now. In fact, between the 49er Alumni crew and the Belk College of Business, we’ve completed five Clean Graffiti campaigns since 2013. Amazing! Their support is so appreciated.
Here you can check out some of that past work: Belk College of Business #UNCCBizSelfie, Belk College of Business $20k Salary Bump, Belk College of Business What’s Your Next Step, 49er Alumni Norm Niner Nation Gives, 49er Alumni Pride scavenger hunt.
The Annual Giving sector of the University has a campaign called #NinerNationGives. This annual fundraiser is a huge way to support the University and all of the Alumni programming. For this 4th year, we were brought in to create a custom piece of Moss Art that travelled to a few University events around Charlotte.We love that this moss is functional art. Since it is a hashtag, people know that the goal is to post pictures to social media using that saying. Not only was this creative marketing a success, it was fun to see our artwork pop up at different events around town.
Moss Facts: This Moss Art piece is 36” x 36,” routed and filled with forest green moss, and made with lots of love.
