Geo-fleur to open new plant shop at The Hepworth Wakefield
The gallery is delighted to announce that Yorkshire-based plant specialists geo-fleur will be opening a pop-up shop in its new café, which reopens later this month.
Leeds-based House of Koko is partnering with Wakefield-based chef Chris Hale to take over the running of The Hepworth Café from Saturday 21 October. They will launch with a new menu and redesigned dining space to create a welcoming experience for visitors.
The geo-fleur shop will provide visitors with the opportunity to buy beautiful and unusual houseplants, succulents, cacti, ferns, concrete pots and plant hangers.
geo-fleur have grown considerably in a relatively short time since opening their first shop in London in 2014, including publishing a best-selling guide, Living with Plants. geo-fleur has worked with clients that include Liberty London, ASOS, Living Etc., and Tate Britain and has been profiled in The Sunday Times, Elle Decoration, Stylist and the Telegraph.
Sophie Lee of geo-fleur commented ‘Since 2014, geo-fleur has gathered a loyal following of passionate plant friends along the way, through our website, social media and events. Having relocated to Yorkshire earlier this year, I’ve been on the lookout for a more permanent home and am overjoyed to have found this at The Hepworth Wakefield.’
Alongside the shop, geo-fleur will provide plant styling throughout the café to complement the re-design of the space by Shanshan Zhu of House of Koko with furniture commissioned from Leeds-based Plæy Workshop.
The geo-fleur plant shop will officially open on Saturday 21 October, 10am to coincide with the opening of the café and gallery’s autumn/winter exhibition programme.
