Store History

  • Founded by: Eliza Blank
  • Headquarters: New York

The Sill is completely changing the way New Yorkers think about, shop for, and live with indoor plants. As the Founder and Creative Director, I have been blown away by the customer response to the business. With products starting at just $32, The Sill's online storefront offers easy care plants, hand potted and delivered to your door. The company launched online only 6 months ago and has already flourished. The Sill will also be testing the concept in retail this holiday season with a pop-up shop at 123 Ludlow Street in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, November 26-December 21.

The perfect way to thank the perfect host is by sending a little gift following a party. While flowers are always pretty, their life span can be limited. A house plant, on the other hand, is a gift that can be enjoyed long after it's been received.

Eliza Blank, the Founder and Creative Director of The Sill, has "a vision for making owning potted plants easy, fun, and fashionable for the young New York market." To that end, she launched her online storefront six months ago, offering easy care plants with free delivery in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Of course, we all know that houseplants have many benefits. From purifying the air to just sprucing up a space, houseplants are great. But they also have a bad rap for being difficult to care for. Eliza intentionally chooses plants that are low maintenance. She couples these plants with modern pots, some in kicky colors.
