A brief history of Polux Fleuriste: “Polux Fleuriste is a floral and lifestyle concept shop developed by Anouchka Martin in New York City’s Nolita District in January 2002.”
What makes Polux Fleuriste stand out: “Polux reflects Anouchka’s experiences as a daughter to a photographer and painter, whilst growing up in the French countryside. Polux, as a brand, is able to capture the beauty and simplicity of a single stem in a vintage apothecary bottle, without compromising the natural elegance of a flower. With its more elaborate compositions, Polux seamlessly plays with floral textures, monochromatic colors, with contrasts in movement and all the while paying homage to the beauty of nature. In 2009, Anouchka partnered with a childhood friend, graphic and clothing designer Barbara Sarudiansky. Barbara, now a partner, has been influential in promoting the business as an interior decorating and event resource.”
What shoppers can expect at All Good Things: “Daily flower arrangements, loose cut flowers, plants, terrariums, and soon tea and candles—and of course all the floral services for events and interiors. We will propose the color of the day—a kind of ‘plat du jour.’ Delivery will be free for the neighborhood.”
