Field Trip

Floral Designer Lewis Miller at The Conservatory

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.

  • Oh what a dream! I’m sure it was a blast and great to learn more about arranging from someone so imaginative.

  • I meant ask if you went there when you posted a photo of yourself at the Vessel. I shopped at Forty Five Ten In Dallas and it was fabulous when Taylor Tomasi Hill was there. I am dying.

  • I was just reading an article about how Dallas is becoming a shopping destination because it’s offering next level retail. I suppose this is bricks and mortar’s answer to the rise of e-commerce: not more soulless chain stores but well- curated experiences and communities ( like the bookstore you posted about). Come to think of it, the best websites do that too—at least, offer that sense of community. Question is will it be enough? One can hope!
