Smithers-Oasis, inventor of the first water-absorbing floral foam, launched a new product range a year ago. Under the name OASIS® Black Ideal floral foam. This product range became a floral trend in no time.
But why? Let's have a look behind the scene
First of all, black stands for elegance and style and is without a doubt one of the chicest colors available. This color exudes luxury and exclusivity and it optically raises the flower arrangement to a higher level. Important and totally different with the familiar green floral foam is that it can also be seen in the designs. You do not have to completely cover this black OASIS® floral foam with greenery and flowers because it is part of the flower arrangement. As a result, considerably less material is required, which is financially attractive, and making a beautiful creation takes less time. In short, there are only benefits. The user of the black floral foam becomes a designer, and the color can be combined with any flower color. Good color combinations with this floral foam are with the colors white, orange, yellow and purple.
But what about the quality of this black OASIS® floral foam?
Smithers-Oasis has succeeded in giving this black floral foam the same qualitative properties as the OASIS® Ideal floral foam. With this black OASIS® floral foam, the user has a product of consistently good quality and the flowers stay fresh for a long time. You can easily insert the flowers in this new floral foam as well as in the green variant.

OASIS® BLACK Ideal floral foam does not only exist in various shapes and sizes like the wreaths, hearts, bricks etc. But also, in several bases. Of course, there are the OASIS® black Ideal floral foam products that have no base like the following 2 products: OASIS® black Ideal foam brick and the OASIS® black Ideal sphere.
