The Seattle shop, design studio and event space Glasswing Greenhouse (1351 E. Olive Way) celebrates its first six months in operation, five years after Alisa Furoyama and Forest Eckley founded its sister, Glasswing, the well-regarded clothing and home goods emporium, one block away.
Cement floors, timber beams and floor-to-ceiling windows encase the industrial yet lush plant and floral boutique, which formerly housed a neighborhood arcade bar. There’s a dedicated space for hands-on workshops, trunk shows and special events, where visitors can immerse themselves in all things flora–from nurturing a newfound green thumb with a Houseplants 101 class to ordering blooms from their fresh-cut flower bar.
With floral designer Kristen Griffth-VanderYacht and plant director Tassy de Give at the helm, the Greenhouse also offers wedding and corporate event design. Locals can also order individual arrangements online to give as gifts or take home seasonal bouquets created in honor of “the world’s most romantic cities.”
