With its modern, yet simple approach to home decor, plants and floral arrangements, Mahonia is a store that inspires its patrons from the moment they walk through the door. Mahogany-stained bookshelves double as plant, pot and vase holders, and living plants hang on almost every white wall in the space, instead of wallpaper.
The store’s owner and creative director, Bridget Davis, spent most of her life working with plants as a floral designer and merchandiser, and this is represented well by Mahonia’s subtle, yet impactful presentation of home and floral goods. It’s Davis’ desire to bring joy to others by creating beautiful spaces that makes Mahonia’s studio off Market Street in Louisville so welcoming.
Named after a yellow flowering shrub native to western, North America, Mahonia has found its niche locally by offering a truly unique mix of plants and flowers, and a vast selection of carefully-curated pots, containers and vases for you to place them in. However, the assortment of Tillandsia – also known as air plants- and the custom terrariums that hang throughout the store (my favorite designs are are being held in the air by gold chains) are what truly sets Mahonia apart from other shops in the area.
The store also offers custom, floral designs for any occasion, and workshops on how to create your own floral arrangements, wreaths and terrariums. To find out more about this local gem, click here.
