Wretched Flowers is the design studio of Loney Abrams and Johnny Stanish. Their ever-evolving practice currently involves designing objects for the home, interior and set design, art direction, and foraged floristry. Clients and collaborators include MoMA PS1, Rhizome, Gladstone Gallery, Anicka Yi, Clever / Architectural Digest, among many others.
Initiated in 2020 as a sustainable floristry studio, Wretched Flowers creates sculptural bouquets using foraged local plants. By consciously harvesting invasive versus native plants, Wretched Flowers facilitates ecological restoration on a small but meaningful scale.
The need for custom vases for their arrangements led them to make their own, which eventually inspired a collection of hand-built ceramic objects for the table top. Their second and most recent collection, ARTIFACT, expands their offering of home accessories to include lamps, a mirror, and a candleholder, in addition to vases. Wretched Flowers is currently pursuing opportunities related to interior design.
Abrams and Stanish, who are married, began collaborating in 2012 while receiving their MFAs from Pratt Institute. In 2012 they co-founded Hotel Art Pavilion, an experimental exhibition platform and gallery space. Abrams and Stanish currently teach at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
