If you take a walk along Queen Victoria Street, at the base of Liv apartments, you’ll notice a buzz of activity bursting from out of the shop fronts. The pop-up retail spaces are offered to businesses, artists, makers and the like through Spacemarket who create communities by providing temporary spaces to set up shop.
This month we spoke to Kate, Gen and Georgia, owners of Sir Botanical, a wedding florist and luxury homewares business located within the pop-up tenancy space at Liv.
Sir Botanical create stunning floral art for modern weddings and events while also creating and designing homewares products such as wall art and candles. All products are made in Australia and available through their online store.
When speaking to the trio, it’s obvious they are very passionate about their craft.
“We love creating, whether it’s for a local Perth business with weekly flowers or designing and producing products; we are at our happiest when we get to just create beautiful things. Flowers are so unique and fun so it’s hard not to be happy when you’re around them”, said Georgia.
Prior to opening their studio at Liv, the girls had been jumping between each other’s homes to operate their business… but they longed for a more permanent option. When the opportunity to set up a space at Liv became available, they jumped in.
“We love Freo. The space at Liv suits our brand really well. We love the light and industrial look of the place; plus, we’re all Freo girls and love the social scene and delicious coffee that’s always on offer,” said Kate.
We asked Gen what was next for Sir Botanical?
“We have some exciting new products launching soon through our online homewares store and we will continue to grow this area of our business as it’s a real passion of ours. We also have a number of epic weddings booked over the next 12 months between Perth and the South West so we will be busy with that as well”, she said.
