I’d been meaning to check out The Conservatory, Brian Bolke’s new luxury concept store at Hudson Yards, when I received an invitation to a masterclass with floral phenom, Lewis Miller. Bolke is a co-founder of the Dallas boutique Forty Five Ten so I knew his new venture would be a must-visit. Along with a well-curated edit of clothing, accessories, beauty products, and home goods, The Conservatory has a café-cum-event space, the Teak Room, which takes the experiential shopping concept to the next level — its brilliant.
Needless to say, the class with Lewis Miller, held in the Teak Room, was memorable. Talented, knowlegeable, patient, and adorable, Mr. Miller chose breathtaking and unpredictable plant material and taught us new ways to consider flower arranging. I will incorporate his tips into my next GCA show entry in September.
Please join Lewis Miller to celebrate his feature in the new Phaidon book Blooms: Contemporary Floral Design at The Conservatory on May 1 from 6:30-8pm.
