Bella Meyer's Fleurs Bella shop is a thing of beauty.

Nestled on a quiet street near bustling Union Square in New York City, Fleurs Bella feels more like a magical secret garden than a traditional flower shop.
In addition to custom floral bouquets, Fleurs Bella creates award-winning wedding and event arrangements for notable clients such as The Plaza Hotel, Sotheby’s, and the Museum of Modern Art.
Artifacts from Ida Meyer's Parisian childhood home are incorporated into the interior design of Fleurs Bella; including an oversized bookcase—filled with texts about her celebrated grandfather—and small bathtub where she took her first bath!
Founder and Creative Director, Bella Meyer—the granddaughter of painter Marc Chagall—studied art in Paris and worked as a stage designer before opening Fleurs Bella in 2010.
Fleurs Bella boasts an impressive team of floral designers, including florist Leanna Kearney who has a background in landscape design.
Flowers have always been close to Bella Meyer's heart.
“What interested me was to create a world apart from the world outside," Meyer has said of her botanical hideaway.
