Founded in 2011, Grace and Thorn was born out of Londoner Nik Southern’s love for naturalistic flower design, plants and a desire to bring back influences of the wild, rustic English countryside to the capital, after a decade living in the country.
Grace and Thorn designs avoid over manipulation and allow flower arrangements to retain natural beauty, resulting in an abundance of flower, foliage, texture & colour combinations.
The first choice of many of the UK’s leading fashion brands and retailers, they have worked with JW Anderson, Christopher Kane, House of Holland, Whistles, Topman, ASOS, GQ, Diesel, Markus Lupfur, French Connection and LK Bennett (where they won the peoples choice award for the Chelsea in Bloom competition in 2013).
Grace and Thorn has earned a reputation for their whimsical and romantic arrangements with an off-beat edge. No two bouquets are ever the same with every bloom, thistle and berry chosen and positioned to create an individual piece of art every time.
Nik opened her first shop in September 2014 at 338 Hackney Road. The shop sells an abundance of plants, pots, terrariums, cards and candles! As well as their bouquets obviously!

The flowers were just stunning – I couldn’t have been more pleased. Not only are you incredibly talented, but you have a very signature look which is even more important.

It has been a pleasure working with Nik Southern, Founder of Grace & Thorn on our Chelsea in Bloom entry this year. As a British brand we love to celebrate our heritage and Nik’s design complemented our vision perfectly. Winning the People’s choice is an incredible honour and we are delighted that visitors to Chelsea loved it as much as we did.
