Given Venice's traditionally hippie vibes, there's no better place to stop and smell the roses, wake up and smell the coffee—or both. Tomorrow at 8am, cool concept shop Flowerboy Project arrives at on-the-rise Lincoln Boulevard, not far from superstar milliner Nick Fouquet.
Part café, boutique, and floral shop, the clean and modern space was dreamed up by LA interior and landscape designer Sean Knibb (who designed K-Town's Line Hotel and that insane Hello Kitty suite) and curated in collaboration with Apolis and Alchemy Works masterminds Raan and Lindsay Parton. Alongside freshly cut flowers, the store offers Apolis's globally-conscious accessories, carryalls by Clare Vivier and Vere Verto, luxe jewelry by Gabriela Artigas and Vendome Yamada, fragrances by Rodin and Feile, framed photography by Will Adler, and much more.
On top of what's on the shelves, everything else in the store is available for purchase or special order, including lighting, furniture, and sculptures designed by Knibb. As far as grub, the counter serves up Vittoria Coffee, Clover Juice, pastries from Sugarbloom Bakery, gourmet sandwiches, sweets Harriet's Cheesecake, and more.
Flowerboy Project is open daily from 8am to 2pm.
