Owner Denise Porcaro got her start in the floral business by arranging blooms at The Park, the restaurant where she worked while in film school. She went on to amass a client list that includes Levi’s, the Gramercy Park Hotel and Zac Posen, and eventually opened a shop inside the Earnest Sewn store. Now, Porcaro has branched out on her own with this rustic stand-alone retail space, featuring white painted-brick walls that allow seasonal plants, such as scabiosa pods, herbs and fiddlehead ferns ($3 per stem), to shine. A bevy of in-house items, including handmade shea-butter soaps ($12), terrariums ($35–$395), handmade denim aprons ($65) and canvas tote bags ($18), are artfully arranged on worn wood tables and shelves.
