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
