Fiore Designs adds flower power to Abbot Kinney


Inside a tiny Craftsman-style cottage on Abbot Kinney, Fiore Designs is bursting with ideas about bouquets beyond fresh-cut flowers.

Part flower shop, part gift store, Fiore Designs is the first retail effort of Jennifer Juhos, who has had a private floral business in Studio City for a decade. Fiore_DriedBerryWhile much that work involved formal creations for weddings, Juhos says that her new store embraces less elaborate, more unusual arrangements -- such as dried pepper berry bouquets and clusters of kale. Wrapped bouquets, bunches of flowers and pre-made arrangements start at $25, and go up to $300.

Fiore's gift items -- plant containers, chocolates, bath products, jewelry, books and garden accessories -- come primarily from small French and English companies. Mini stone urns filled with small plants cost $22; lavender sachets made from vintage handkerchiefs are $26-$32; bottles with cut-glass stoppers start at $32; and Côte Bastide candles are $38.

Juhos also carries a line of French chocolates called Rococo. They're infused with floral essences and wrapped so beautifully you might never want to disturb the paper.
