Iona and Romy are SAGE Flowers, a florist based in Peckham. Inspired by a wide range of art, design and subculture, arrangements are contemporary and modern, often using different floral and non-floral elements to come together as a unique sculptural piece. Post lockdown, make sure it’s high on your list of places to visit in person, the shop is a visual and aromatic feast. Plus, Iona and Romy are always up for a chat.
There’s a whole host of options at SAGE for Christmas gifting, but a monthly floral subscription has got to be their best offering. Their gift selection of incredible candles, sweet treats and beauty products are lovely, too.
FYI, SAGE are also trying to address the very real barriers to entry for black, indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC) by offering a free three month training programme, planned to run four times a year.
