Oliver Dogwood Floral Co. was created from the love of everything floral and just making things pretty. Owner and designer, Tiffany Schimmerling, is celebrating 13 years with her Chicago business located in the West Loop.
"I just love doing what I do." Florals just bring a happiness to the person receiving the arrangement, or guests sitting around to enjoy the aromas - they also create a peacefulness. Why I love my work is that I get to bring colors and textures together and bring out just the right emotion.
A little something about myself. I'm Chicago born and raised on the North Side. My personal style? Pretty. I like everything to be pretty... but with an edge. When I design, I want my work to evoke an emotion. Things that make me smile? Ice cream. Bull Dogs. Oh, and did I mention I'm a HUGE Bon Jovi fan. Floral philosophy is that I like my floral designs to look natural, organic and lush. My favorite flowers? It's almost impossible to pick one, or even ten. I just love, love, love flowers.
What sets Oliver Dogwood Floral Co. apart. I have the insane need for perfection! When picking florals, I have a keen eye for selecting the best out of a thousand. I Like to make beautiful and delivery beautiful.
Meet Ella. She is our floral studio English bulldog, and loves taking impromptu photoshoots and our Quality Control. Okay, no seriously... she truly enjoys smelling the roses and greeting our clients.
Where would Oliver Dogwood be without our Operations Manager, Nick? He makes sure all the essentials are set up to perfection. Nick truly brings such great energy to the studio!
