With the launch the Soho Home X Leaf Envy’s new collection of houseplants, the iconic luxe, layered aesthetic of Soho House’s members-only urban sanctuaries is now easy to recreate at home.

Inspired by the statement foliage and greenery found in Soho Houses across the globe, the curated collection features six houseplants, ranging in style and proportion so that there’s something to suit every room, together with handcrafted pots designed to complement the greenery.
‘A Soho House space is designed to feel welcoming and have personality from the moment you step inside,’ says Candy Murray, Interior Style Manager at Soho Home, ‘and plants and greenery play a key role in adding that spark.’
The new Soho Home X Leaf Envycollection includes the ‘on-trend’ Fiddle Leaf Fig (with its violin-shaped, glossy foliage), the Chinese Money Plant, known for its air purification qualities, and the much-Instagrammed Monstera Deliciosa or ‘Swiss cheese Plant’.
For a tropical vibe, try the exotic Kentia palm (notorious for being able to withstand conditions that many houseplants can’t tolerate) or the virtually indestructible ZZ plant. The showstopper of the collection is the Peace Lily, which bears beautiful white flowers when given plenty of bright, indirect light.
‘Not only do houseplants improve our homes aesthetically by softening spaces and highlighting signature accents, but studies show that they promote an array of emotional, physical and mental health benefits, from air purification to boosting productivity, as well as creativity and reducing stress,’ says Beth Chapman, Founder of Leaf Envy.
‘Soho Home is a trailblazer in the interiors world and we are excited to partner with a design-led brand which shares our belief in the power of plants to boost our minds and our homes,’ adds Beth.
With indoor plants and greenery one of the biggest interiors trends over the last year, we asked Leaf Envy which houseplants are set to be big going forwards.
‘In our opinion, it's all about pattern when it comes to the next big thing in houseplants,’ says Olivia Elwin Taylor. ‘Pattern can add another dimension to interiors.’
