Richmond Florist

Richmond florist, Lilac and the Cat has been inspired by the unique vibrancy of its surrounds - we love the way that Richmond seamlessly blends the old with the new and the way different approaches, backgrounds and subsets of society can be blended together to create a beautiful, vibrant hub of activity and culture.

Corporate Floral ArrangementWhen establishing our florist in Richmond, we wanted to engage with this avant-garde vibrancy and situate ourselves within the unique spirit of this area of Melbourne. We also love the social and environmental conscience that Richmond perpetuates, through the countless examples of thought provoking street art and bevy of forward-thinking businesses. Lilac and the Cat infuse our own business practices with this ethically-motivated conscience by making a clear commitment to purchasing from local suppliers and by only selecting imported products that meet up to our ethical and environmental standards. 

Our florist store shares a premise with a vegan café and a record store. So, if you need a little soul pleasing next time you’re in Richmond, we have something for all your senses. 

Founder Jane Louise’s intuition for creating seamless yet striking blends of colours, textures and flowers is built on the back of her willingness to experiment and take cues from nature. She also takes inspiration from Richmond, where people turn contrasts into creations, where brick walls become herb gardens, and every inch of wall is a blank canvas. All of these creations are a result of trying to communicate and rise above what we see around us, and express our need to tell our story. Every flower has a story to tell and Lilac and the Cat is the medium of expression.
Creating a flora design isn’t about hiding the peculiarities of each genus of flower and the differences between individual flowers. It’s about celebrating these differences and having the personalities of the flowers converse with one another, and shine through.
