Flour LA, Inc provides flowers for the lifestyle, beauty, tech, and fashion industries matching floral and event design to brands for product launches, parties, and corporate events. Owner and author Carly Cylinder is a speaker and floral design teacher for private and public events hosted between media and brands. Our sister company Flour LA, Jr throws kids parties. We are located in New York City, Los Angeles, and Nashville and have worked in nearly every major city in the US. We travel abroad for luxury events.
Flour was originally conceived as a retail storefront of food and flowers towards the end of 2009, hence the company's double-entendre name. However, after building an online presence locally in the floral world, the plan got derailed in order to focus on solely providing flowers to our upscale clientele that yearned for quality and creativity. As we grew, our clients started calling us Flour LA, and in 2013 we expanded to the east coast. In 2019, Carly expanded Flour LA to Nashville.
We mainly provide florals for high-end fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands, the media, editorial, PR events, galas, and festivals, along with a select number of weddings.
At the end of 2013 we launched Flour LA, Jr! which throw children's parties where kids play with, build, and decorate with flowers. Please Contact Us for Los Angeles, New York City, and Nashville events, parties, openings, art sculptures, or anything else you want to adorn with flowers! When possible, we donate leftover event flowers and plants to women's shelters in LA, NYC, and Nashville.
Carly Cylinder developed her creative skills while working as a sales girl at Mark's Garden, Rita Flora, and Empty Vase. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Psychology, she worked for OneLegacy, a Donate Life organization, during the planning phase of Flour LA. She freelanced as a designer for David Stark Design in NYC for a few years while expanding her studio to New York.
Her first floral design book The Flower Chef, was published in 2016 by Grand Central Publishing.
