L.A.-based floral design studio The Velvet Garden creates custom arrangements for corporations, photo shoots, TV shows, movie sets, weddings and celebrity homes. "This is a peek into our vessel storage space," says Kimm Birkicht, TVG's co-founder and creative director. "We keep them in the open and organized by shape and color so we can access them easily."
On A Roll
Birkicht says keeping ribbon organized by color helps her put her hands on exactly what she wants when she needs it.
In Your Vase
The Velvet Garden's storefront is full of home goods like vases clients can purchase to accent their arrangements.
Birkicht also uses storefront shelving to "depict different stories about color, texture and materials," she says.
Get The Picture
Images of flowers in The Velvet Garden's storefront serve dual purposes: They're arranged above a small table as inspiration for clients and they're also for sale as a home accent.
Birkicht uses this deep, beautiful sofa as a place to meet with clients and discuss their floral needs.
Birkicht loves to incorporate vintage spooled ribbon in her designs.
Table The Discussion
"I like to showcase still-life vignettes with the vases we have for sale," Birkicht says. "Here I have potted orchids in organic containers."
Gather Some Moss
Birkicht uses the center table in her showroom to feature new products. "This miniature moss garden is just one of the many installations we create to inspire clients," she says.
In addition to their event work, The Velvet Garden creates arrangements that are delivered to clients around the Los Angeles area every day.
Behind The Scenes
"This is the main design table, where the magic happens," Birkicht says.
This gorgeous arrangement of white anemones is on its way to a lucky recipient.
