Shopper's Diary: Blomsterskuret, the World's Most Beautiful Flower Shop?

Issue 29 · Urban Escape · July 22, 2014

Martin Reinicke's Blomsterskuret (meaning "flower shed" in Danish) is overflowing with starter plants, topiaries, and fresh-cut flowers. Reinicke, a floral designer and potter, began Blomsterskuret shortly after establishing his workshop-in-shop, Krukkeriet, where he sells his earthenware planters. He built the flower shop in a small black shed that's lit outside by rustic gooseneck fixtures. Both Krukkeriet and Blomsterskuret are on V√¶rndamsvej, a street that dissects Copenhagen from Frederiksberg, in the popular Vesterbro district. For more information, visit Blomsterskuret.
