The Sill is coming to Chicago’s Southport Corridor

Trendy plant-shop The Sill is coming to 1351 W. Roscoe Street next to Fleet Feet. The Sill, founded in 2012 currently has shops in New York City on the Upper West Side, The Lower East Side, Brooklyn, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

One of the most popular online houseplant retailers, The Sill launched in 2012, so city-dwellers could enjoy the benefits of indoor houseplants. The company describes itself as “a modern plant destination for the modern plant lover.”

About The Sill:

“Bringing Life To People And People To Life

Rest your eye on something beautiful.
Touch something alive.
Find a moment of stillness, of quiet contemplation.
Let nature bring out the best in you.
The Sill was founded on the premise that plants make people happy.
There\’s something in the simple act of being around, and caring for, plants that boosts our spirits and enhances our environments. It’s actually been established that every exposure to nature—from gardening to forest bathing to just sharing space with organic elements—mitigates the modern condition, that stressed-out state we find ourselves in all too often.
So we offer new ways to infuse this restorative beauty into as many everyday rituals as possible, through biophilic design that increases your connection to the natural world. It will ground you, fortify you and light you up.
Join us in cultivating a life well-lived.”
Origin Story
“Eliza Blank founded The Sill in 2012. Passionate about plants, she wanted to help demystify them, make them accessible to non-horticulturists and elevate the experience beyond the local garden supply center.
She broke new ground with an online plant delivery business that has grown to include stores in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Hands-on educational workshops are now hosted in-store and online, and the brand vision has expanded beyond plants to include biophilic design that evokes an essential connection to the natural world.
As Eliza says, “Plants create time and space to nurture yourself. If you’re not making time for them, you’re probably not making time for yourself either.”
The Sill is here to help you connect to plants and nature, so you can cultivate a life well-lived.”
The Southport Corridor shop is currently hiring. You can visit their website for job listings here.
