Bloomy TimesThe most beautiful florists
It’s time to blossom! Although summer is still a while away, we’ll soothe our souls by bringing a touch of summer into our homes with the floral creations of these shops:
Department Store Quartier 206
A one stop shop: In addition to designer fashion and lifestyle products, Department Store Quartier 206 offers a holistic way of life that is most evident in the colorful and fragrant floral department. Bouquets are put together in a variety of styles, reflecting the international concept of the store. Evergreens like gerbera or ranunculus complement rare exotic beauties such as birds of paradise or Peruvian lilies.
Like a piece of artwork, Marsano enchants with a particularly successful blend of flowers and matching interior. The team of three florists who run this Berlin shop offer bountiful bouquets and plants as well as matching vases and bowls. Their travels have also unearthed selected vintage and contemporary furniture. Alongside the shop, Marsano also provides all the services to create stunning floral arrangements: from creative floral workshops to professional styling for photo shoots.
New Covent Garden Market
New Covent Garden Flower Market is a legendary London address when it comes to flowers. It is the largest wholesale flower trader in England and a Mecca for florists, stylists and interior designers. Whatever your heart desires: flowers and plants in all colors and shapes; fresh or dried; in vases or pots, you can find it here, whether for companies, customers, friends or for your own home. The rich variety of fruits and vegetables completes the walk through the market and makes for a successful shopping trip.
The Real Flower Company
The Real Flower Company from Hampshire guarantees genuine, handmade flower art. Each flower this florist uses is dug, planted and harvested by hand. The arrangements of roses, poppies, hyacinths and daffodils are tied with great attention to detail and, wrapped in romantic moss-green boxes, give off an elegant rustic charm. Not without reason, the Company is one of many VIPs and members of the Royal Family to the florists of trust. It goes without saying that numerous VIPs and members of the royal family trust this florist when they want something extra special.
For those who prefer the unconventional, Stockholm’s Landet Järna is the perfect florist: in this shop run by three Swedish sisters, you won’t find roses or tulips, rather wild flowers, grasses, shrubs and branches with delicate buds. All the plants come from the forests around Stockholm reflecting the sisters desire to only offer local, seasonal, pesticide-free and fair trade flowers for sale. The result is minimalist, stylish arrangements that impart a mystical charm to every space.
In Amsterdam’s exclusive Cornelis Schuytstraat is Menno Kroon, possibly the most intoxicating florist in town. Seconds after entering the store you’re already relaxing in the midst of hanging and creatively draped plants. In addition to a range of luxury interior designer pieces, it’s the colorful variety of flowers, imported from all over the world, that leave the strongest impression, set against contrasting materials such as wood, stone and ceramic.
