Pentlands clients, Sarah Horne Flowers are celebrating 40 years in business this week.
Owner, Sarah Horne is an internationally renowned, creative floral artist who has attained three Chelsea Gold medals for Professional Floristry and has also won the prestigious title of Chelsea Florist of the year 2011.
Sarah’s shop in Royal Leamington Spa has reached the national finals of the UK Flower Shop of the Year four times and her infectious passion for all things has led her to demonstrate her artistry all over the world.
With over 35 years immersed in this abundance of flowers and their fragrances, Sarah was inspired to extend her design skills into pen-and-ink botanical illustrations and is now an exhibited artist. While Sarah’s artwork has been influenced by vintage and Victorian botanical engravings, her black and white ink drawings also carry an edge of modernity – creating a wonderfully eclectic result.
Using her illustrations as an impetus, Sarah has developed a range of gorgeous products for the home Sarah Horne Botanicals. Her beautiful studies now adorn this stunning range of chinaware and scented candles all borne from her passion and knowledge of all this floral – fragrance, colour and composition. The Sarah Horne Botanicals collection can be found in stores around the UK, USA, Italy, Switzerland, Japan so far.
Sarah said: what an adventure it has been so far. My proudest thing is that we are still here after the past few months!
A huge thank you to the Sarah Horne Team past and present for helping us get here and of course a huge thank you to our wonderful customers…here’s to the next 40 years!!
