Best Plants for a Maximalist Office

Maximalism, a design style focusing on color, pattern, texture, and unique elements, has recently become a popular decorating type for offices and homes.

But while unique art and colorful décor are nice, they may not be the most office-friendly.

What better way to embrace maximalism in the office than by integrating nature's own masterpieces? Plants are always a must-have in any office. Not only do they have numerous benefits, but their vibrant green plays well with any style, especially maximalism. Whether you're looking to fill an empty corner or add color, here are some of our favorite plants that can work in any maximalist office!

Colorful Plants


If maximalism had a mascot, this plant would be it. Croton plants are best known for their striking colors – particularly varying shades of reds, yellows, and greens.


With their vibrant hues and unique shapes, bromeliads can add that pop of color every office needs. They thrive on medium light (though low light is also okay!) and occasional watering.


Eye-catching and vibrant, orchids are a classic pick. With a wide variety of colors and intricate petals, they elevate any office.

Marginata Dracaena

Marginata dracaena, or dragon tree, are best known for their long, thin leaves with red edges. Though they aren't as vibrant as some of the plants listed, these tall, slender plants can fit into almost any corner, adding height and interest to your space.

Lush, Green Plants

Bird of Paradise

With its large, glossy green leaves and striking height, the bird of paradise adds a touch of tropical elegance to any space. Its broad, arching leaves are eye-catching without being overwhelming, making it the perfect statement piece for your office.

Moss Walls

Moss walls are quickly gaining popularity in offices. Why? In addition to being relatively low maintenance, they introduce a textured, lush backdrop, perfect for maximalist designs.


Ideal for shelves or hanging pots, pothos are a popular office choice since they have such variety in terms of colors and leaf patterns.


With large, glossy leaves and an evergreen presence, philodendrons are versatile and vibrant. They are classics that can thrive in a maximalist space – especially when allowed to cascade or climb.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

The large, glossy leaves of the fiddle leaf fig (Ficus Lyrata) make quite a big statement. These plants elevate the maximalist theme with their towering presence and striking color.

ZZ Plant

Not only is the ZZ Plant low maintenance, but its shiny, dark green leaves add texture and a modern touch to spaces. It's the sturdy staple every space, maximalist or otherwise, needs.
