6 Reasons to Try This Flower Delivery Service

You Love Flowers? So Do We

If there’s one thing that can tie a room or office together it’s a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Whether they're the first thing you see when you walk in a room or a subtle conversation starter, flowers are the epitome of ‘fresh' and ‘alive’ where decor is concerned. If we could, I’m sure every one of us would keep fresh flowers in sight at all times, but for the average office manager or homemaker, that can be a huge chore.

Picking fresh flowers from the market, arranging them just right, and finding a vase to display them in can take hours of your day. Plenty of florists can deliver a pre-prepared bouquet, but what if the delphiniums clash with the desk or the lavender starts to wilt the day after it’s delivered? No matter how you slice it, floral decor is hard to get right, and the hassle can be a turn off even to the most enthusiastic anthophile.

Why Iris & Virgil

That’s where Iris & Virgil comes in. Iris & Virgil is a floral studio based in Brooklyn, New York, founded by Victoria Monsul Singolda on the premise that flowers are an art and should be a hassle-free experience. Each arrangement, installation, and floral styling begins with materials carefully hand-selected from the local market daily by our designers, resulting in a unique floral product and heightened design, which is then delivered to you on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis.

It’s a personalized flower service unlike anything else in the New York area.

It’s one thing to deliver a great bouquet of flowers, but what happens to the old ones?

Before I opened Iris & Virgil floral design studio, I worked in many offices, some corporate, some with few windows and some with muted, color palettes. Work day to day got done, but as a business person working the 9-5, M-F, I often experienced lethargy, visual dullness, and as a result began to bring flowers to my desk on a regular basis. Doing this, attracted visitors to my cubicle, warmed up client office visits, and kept my eye sight visually stimulated, in an otherwise muted, colorless office world. 

Upon launching my business, one of my earliest and ongoing accounts was a creative agency located in Manhattan, Harley & Co. As they focus on hiring the best creative talent in the industry, and building a book of business specializing in relevant and immersive digital and event work, flowers in the office, were never solely placed to improve the office facade, Alexandra Hall, Harley VP, and Co-Founder shared with me, "They are conversation starters with our team. Every Monday morning we guess what visual floral art could be in store for us this week. The team loves the arrangements and even better when clients visit, we always have a chic display at our meeting table that get people talking. It's good for business and showing our employees that we appreciate them."

Stemming from Life and Art

Walking by the seashore in Tel Aviv a few months ago, I vividly remember an item I passed on the heat drenched lawn which I photographed and later included into a montage of collective images. It was like finding a piece of gold on the side of the road, at least it's shimmer was worth the glimpse of perhaps a shiny piece of gold. It was but a candy wrapper, twisted and exposed to the piercing sun, somehow unmelted and glowing in emerald iridescent streaks.

I bent over to inspect it closer, wondering how such a lovely material went unappreciated, discarded by someone who thought they had already enjoyed the best part of its sweet core. Only the emerald wrapper continued to shine and invite as it did I. Sitting, I pondered the wrapper and fantasized about how I could frame some beautiful quick sand roses and baby blue delphinium, juxtaposing metallic glam with soft and leathery blooms and petals. I took the wrapper with me and carried it's inspirational intrigue.

Eventually as flowers flooded into my mind through the crevasses of my thoughts I imagined a studio covered like a mosaic of emerald candy-like flower packages, and graphic floral sketches existing in the negative space between. Like a sweet river flowing into and out, with colors being used to create sound, texture instigating movement and vessels to portray the frame.

It was art; borrowed, told, encountered, and the medium had to be flowers. How a person moves expressed into fresh blossoms, branches reaching and stems bending like vibrant paints. A portrayal of sheer experience expressed in floral composition.

Evoking a meaningful moment, and bringing an emotion to any space with the stamina of a poem. It is that, which we aim for in creating unique and perhaps heightened floral works at Iris and Virgil, allowing for those passing by to pause or slow down and enjoy the beauty of nature's art work.
