Creating the Greenhouse Vibe for Los Angeles Florist Bouqs

 

It all started with Shark Tank. Founded in 2012, Bouqs is an online florist giving new meaning to the oft-bandied phrase, farm to table. In this case, it’s flower farm to cocktail table—or maybe a desk. Streamlining operations to eschew middle men gives the grower partners greater revenue.

Uprooting Venice origins for its growing staff of 60, the firm relocated to a 14,000-square-foot brick and glass bow-truss building in Marina del Rey, California. Enviable for the bones, but with inherent challenges. Ultimately, they posed no sweat to David Plafchan and Wolcott designer Andie Chang.
