Thompson + Hanson
This is no ordinary flower shop. Thompson + Hanson is the Dior of florists. With an available landscape architecture department you can incorporate their particular brand of hothouse cool into the fabric of your residence or take home a great looking flower arrangement or bulb menagerie. In the shop you will always find detailed antiques and fine housewares sourced from all over the globe as well as unusual little gifts and doodads. The nursery is overflowing with exotic and native annuals and perennials to stock your garden or your house. There are also pots and containers made of everything from Italian terracotta to Belgian zinc. The landscape architects in the Thompson + Hanson stable are some of the finest and most creative talents in town and will do everything within their power to turn your backyard, patio or giant property into an aesthetic paradise. There is even a café and espresso bar called Tiny Boxwood's where you can rest your weary green thumbs and take in the beautiful nursery—or the beautiful socialites who lunch here. The place is a wonderland for shoppers and it is easy to get caught up in the excitement of chic gardening even if you live in a 12th floor condo.
