In the heart of the Flower Market, New York City's beloved floral Institution opens new shop in the entrance of Moxy Chelsea
NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Moxy Chelsea today celebrates the opening of its newest in-house floral residency, Starbright Floral Design. Gracing the entryway of the hotel and located in the heart of Manhattan's blossoming Flower Market, Starbright Floral Design, a celebrated neighborhood institution for nearly three decades and one of the city's premier florists, has transformed Moxy Chelsea into an autumn oasis with its first installation. The shop also features a highly-curated selection of fresh flowers and plants for purchase. After Thanksgiving, Starbright will revamp the space once again with a made-for-Moxy Pink Holiday-themed floral display.
"Each of our Moxy hotels celebrates its neighborhood, and Moxy Chelsea was designed to be harmonious with the surrounding Flower Market," said Mitchell Hochberg, President of Lightstone. "We're excited to partner with Starbright, an iconic cornerstone of the community. They have created a unique sensory installation that will truly enhance our guests' arrival experience."
Starbright's flower cart will be constantly changing with fresh flowers daily for purchase, from small buds to grand displays throughout the hotel. The Starbright boutique will be selling creative arrangements of flowers, plants, succulents, air plants, and floral décor for events as well as nation-wide floral gift deliveries.
"We are thrilled to collaborate with Moxy Chelsea on opening our first hotel floral boutique, one that elevates the Starbright brand in a new direction with a great partner," said Nic Faitos, Senior Partner at Starbright Floral Design. "The abundant and ever-changing floral installations we create, coupled with fun bouquet-making classes for guests and locals will bring a new immersive element to Moxy Chelsea, and ultimately the neighborhood."
Faitos added, "The finest blooms imaginable will be offered in grab-and-go bouquets for Moxy guests and the public alike. Everything that New York City has come to know about Starbright will be on display in the heart of our historic Flower District."
