“CHICAGO — The Sill owners say the shop was founded on the simple premise that plants make people happy.
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 or big box store.
She started out as an online plant delivery business, delivering the plants herself to valued customers in NYC. Now, the reach has grown to stores in New York City, Los Angeles and right here in Chicago.
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.”
