World's Most Beautiful Flower Shop?

Issue 59 · L'Amour · February 13, 2013

Located on Værndamsvej, a street that dissects Copenhagen from Frederiksberg, 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. The flower shop is built out of a small shed, painted black, and illuminated with rustic gooseneck lighting outside. Both Krukkeriet and Blomsterskuret are located on the same street in the popular Vesterbro district. For more information, visit Blomsterskuret.
