20 June, Kuala Lumpur – The BÖN Estates Gallery, situated prominently on the corner of Jalan Penaga and Jalan Maarof in Bangsar, will be in full bloom for a month as it has been transformed into an enchanting haven of rare orchids and a spectacular showcase of artistic floral home décor.
The award-winning gallery, which has already been recognised for its exceptional “touch and feel” experience, will now offer visitors an enhanced encounter with an inspiring living environment infused with the remarkable mood-setting influence of orchids.
Starting today, Orchid Elegance is a month-long showcase of orchid-inspired interior decoration and unique selection of orchids, organised in partnership with Orchid Culture, to offer lifestyle seekers a host of inspiring ideas on how to elevate their home ambience. Visitors will find out how the right selection, placement and size of orchids can truly transform your home into an enchanting collection of spaces.
Well-known for their collection of beautifully exotic orchids and exquisite floral arrangements, Orchid Culture’s artistry will be on full display with eye-catching arrangements on the ground floor of the gallery as well as at the meticulously decorated show unit of The Estate – BÖN Estates’ flagship project in South Bangsar.
In addition, Orchid Culture will be using the venue to launch its limited-edition Autograph Collection, which are extremely rare orchids that specially cultivated for BÖN Estates that grow to about 4 ft in height, with more than 20 blooms. The growing process takes about 5 years.
The showcase is also enhanced by the creative direction of Nas Great Idea, an event specialist that is bringing its magical touch to this truly exceptional orchid experience.
“It might seem unusual for a developer to focus attention on the decorative beauty of rare orchids, but BÖN Estates has always seen ourselves as lifestyle craftsmen rather than traditional builders. From that perspective, we often engage with lifestyle-enriching concepts, and there is great synergy between how these exceptional flowers bring colour and life to the living space and our own dedication to enhancing lives through curated environments,” said BÖN Estates Chief Operating Officer Chan Jin-Wy.
Chan added that by hosting Orchid Elegance at the BÖN Estates Gallery and The Estate show unit, consumers will have an opportunity to get an authentic feel of how these orchids fit into their living spaces, informing their choice of size, arrangement and colour.
With a wide range of orchids on display and a variety of interior décor concepts to inspire choices, Chan hopes that visitors will not just make great buys and take home great ideas, but also discover a little bit about themselves in the process, in terms personality and the desired ambience they want to create at home.
Orchid Elegance coincides with BÖN Estates’ planned annual Hari Raya celebrations, which takes place on June 22nd at the gallery, providing an ideal opportunity to enjoy the unique orchid showcase in the fun-filled atmosphere of Raya celebrations over the weekend.
“Our festive celebrations are always a highlight at the BÖN Estates Gallery, but this year’s Raya celebration is poised to be a really remarkable affair, with traditional cuisine and an environment that is fittingly vibrant and colourful for one of the most important festivals on our calendar,” Chan explained.
Overall, Chan said that Orchid Elegance is a not-to-be-missed event that ties in very neatly with the unique lifestyle promise at The Estate; where a living environment enhanced by greenery, wholesome surroundings and eco-centric facilities is also accompanied by BÖN Estates’ philosophy of encouraging “Good Living” practices.
“In a sense, Orchid Elegance is about more than beautifying your home, it is also about the power you have to personalise and enhance your intimate space, by creating an ambience that suits your personality and purpose,” he said.
“At BÖN Estates, we understand that bringing your personality into your space gives you a fulfilling sense of belonging… which is an important ingredient to making you truly feel at home,” he added.
