Odorantes: Where the flowers are arranged by scent. It is said to be a favorite of such young trendsetters as Sofia Coppola.

A black awning hints at the color scheme that waits for you.  Inside the Odorantes shop, chalkboard gray walls are a perfect foil for the riot of color that fills vases, covers tabletops, and overwhelms you in the best possible way.

Ixia SF – 30 Years of Innovative Design

January 13th, 2014 by Estelle Mays

ixiared.2Gary Weiss, of Ixia in San Francisco can recall when Peruvian Lilies (alstromeria) and Mini Carnations were hot commodities in the floral industry. Times and tastes have changed through the years. And, Ixia has been an innovator throughout every phase, for over 30 years!  Happy Anniversary Ixia!

ixia.textured

Long known and sought after for their textural designs of unique and interesting elements, Ixia frequently creates arrangements entirely devoid of florals.   As Gary says, “I think we have more sticks and wood in the shop than the entire flower market.  You can never have too many sticks and stones!”
