Faux Olive trees may have stolen the spotlight at the moment, but Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees are still as popular as ever! This post has been sitting here waiting for me to hit publish and I’m happy to say I finally did.
If you are searching for the best faux fiddle leaf fig tree you can find – then your search is over my friend! 🙂 I’m highlighting the most popular, most realistic fig trees on the market. You won’t be disappointed with any of these.
These are the same trees that designers, influencers, and home bloggers alike use in their homes. They are VERY popular! So you can rest assured you are going to be happy with any of these trees. Now you just have to pick your favorite.
When I’m searching for faux plants and trees, I always go straight to the real source first. What does a real fiddle leaf fig tree look like? It looks like this …
Large, shiny leaves (almost a little plasticky looking if I can say that), and a skinny trunk. They can either have leaves all the way down the trunk or a single trunk with a bushy leaf top.
It’s a beautiful plant, very dramatic and almost sculptural. So forget the art and just add one of these fiddle leaf fig trees as your decor. These trees need very bright light and are somewhat fussy to grow indoors – which is why the faux versions are so popular. So without further delay, let’s dive right in!
Best Faux Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees
For any of these faux fig trees, just click on the picture or the link and it will take you to the page with more information.
1. World Market
World Market has not one, but TWO of the most popular faux fig trees out there. The nice thing is that both are different – so depending on whether you want a “leggier” tree with a bushy top, or leaves all the way down the trunk – you will find both here. I think you will be pleased with either one.
Let’s start with the leggier of the two. This one will command attention in any room you put it in. It stands 6 feet tall and has branches you can manipulate to your liking.
Reviewers state over and over again how realistic this tree looks and the great quality for the price. In fact – we bought this for my husband Sean’s office makeover. Look at this beauty!! It is SO realistic.
The second faux fiddle leaf is smaller, at 57 inches high. However, it is bushy and a great fig tree to fill any corner of a room! All the leaves are bendable, so you can allow your inner artist to make this look as realistic as possible. The price is pretty good too!
Both of these fig trees come in a weighted stand, and like the olive trees, you should definitely place them in a more substantial pot or basket when you get them home. Luckily, World Market is one of my favorite places to get baskets! So grab one while you’re there.
A best-seller and a great budget-friendly option! The faux fiddle leaf fig tree by Valerie Parr comes in not one, not two, not three, but FOUR different sizes! You can get one at 4 foot, 5 foot, 6 foot, or 7 foot depending on your needs.
These are the most inexpensive faux fiddle leaf figs on the list. Each of the leaves of this fig tree is made of fabric (not paper) and shaded in color for a more realistic look.
The price is very reasonable for a tree this size and reviewers state how they fill a dead corner in your home nicely and look like a real plant.
According to Valerie Parr, you can use styrofoam blocks or crushed paper to hold your fig tree in place in a basket or other pot. Then add some pebbles or moss on top for a realistic look.
With all these trees, I’ll say it again – you need to re-pot them! Those dinky little weight planters just won’t do them justice. I really love the look of these trees and bonus – QVC offers easy pay so you can split up the purchase if you want to. The price is really good!
3. Pottery Barn
Pottery Barn has a very popular olive tree, so it seems only natural (pun intended) that they would also steal the show with their fiddle leaf fig trees. Standing at either 5.5 or 7 feet tall, their fig tree offers a more wispy look – with the trunk exposed more all the way down.
The leaves and trunk contain wires and are bendable so you can really get creative and make this look good. I actually really love that their trees come wrapped in a charming burlap sack, however (sorry to repeat) but you should probably repot this nonetheless.
I have to say that Pottery Barn is killing it in the faux plants and trees department. This is one of the more expensive options on this list, but that comes with Pottery Barn’s commitment to quality and ethical manufacturing practices.
When I was searching for an olive tree for our house – I was shocked to discover that Etsy has some of the best options for faux trees and plants! I don’t know why I never considered them for faux trees before but you will not be disappointed with these!
This shop sells the most beautiful faux botanicals and trees – including their faux fiddle leaf figs. I found two amazing options in the shop and both have glowing reviews to support them.
One is a more traditional-looking fig tree while the other is quite different – and even includes the faux figs! With either one – they are seriously realistic and would look amazing in any room.
If you want a bushier fig leaf tree, then look no further than this option from Wayfair.
Standing at 72 inches tall with a weighted base – it includes 5 segmented trunks and really packed full of leaves! In fact, some of the reviews state the tree was a bit “too full” and they had to pull off some of the leaves.
Reviews also state that it took quite a bit of bending and manipulation of the leaves to get the look they wanted.
Either way, it has almost 500 good reviews, and if you need something with a lot of lush greenery on it and LOTS of customer photos to peruse – definitely check this one out!
This is a new one coming on the scene but worthy of a mention here. If you are looking for a fig tree with LARGE leaves – then this one might just be your winner.
This fiddle leaf fig is leggier but at 72 inches high and with the inclusion of those larger leaves, it will still make a statement in the room. The leaves are bendable, so you can fashion them any way you want until it looks perfect.
I don’t know about you but I really look at customer photos closely, that to me is the most accurate representation of what the product will look like. And these customer photos are pretty darn good.
I saw this Vickerman faux tree come across my radar on Instagram. This one has a unique shape but still looks very realistic. And, it comes in different heights up to 10 feet (the 10 ft is not always available though).
