About-designs is a family business started by sisters Eva and Sonya in 2015. Their love of flowers, plants and interiors began several years earlier though. It was during Sonya’s first year in the interior design program at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Eva was in her junior year of high school. Both girls were looking for a seasonal job around the holidays and on a whim at the request of their mother, answered a newspaper ad for a local florist/greenhouse. The seasonal job turned into a great part time job and fantastic learning opportunity for the girls. Fortunately this shop was a family business pulling together a multitude of talents from farming to growing to floral design. Sonya and Eva look back fondly on their experiences in the set-up of events at museums, weddings and holiday parties and helping customers in the the florist's storefront. Placing an equal interest in the flowers as well as the space they occupy, about-designs schemes to be an integral part of the overall aesthetic. As a trained as an interior designer, Sonya strives to incorporate the all elements a cohesive manner. In Eva’s spare time you may find her cooking or playing tennis. Sonya enjoys scouring tag sales for unique antique vessels and furniture or digging into a new renovation project.  
At about-designs we recognize there is a bit of waste in the design industry from shipping to packing to construction and everything in between. Whenever possible we try to incorporate antique vessels/furniture from our collection or from our clients. With respect to flowers, we aim to purchase as much as possible grown in the Garden State. During the holiday season we cut our own greenery from local farms.

About Designs provided florals and décor for our September 2021 wedding at the W Hoboken, and I would definitely recommend the team!

After being referred by a mutual friend's wedding in Hoboken/Jersey City, we first contacted Sonya and Eva. After reviewing the designs on their Instagram and website, we knew it was the perfect fit. We were looking for a florist that has both modern and timeless décor and would enhance the beauty of the NYC skyline behind us. The quality and style of their work stood out in a crowd of wedding vendors.

Our wedding was initially planned for November 2020, but we postponed it to September 2021 due to the pandemic. Sonya and Eva helped every step of the way and made it easy to postpone. They made the planning process simple and responded to my many wedding questions. They also helped re-design the flowers and color palette when our event changed seasons.

The team went above and beyond on the wedding day; they arrived early to drop off the bouquets/boutonnieres and start setting up. The ceremony, cocktail, and reception space were set up beautifully!

Thank you so much for the gorgeous designs on the best day of our lives; it was a pleasure to have you and your team as part of it all. We're so pleased with the lasting memories we now have from our videos and photos!

Sonya and Eva were great to work with! They are available whenever you need to discuss and were so flexible with our needs of having to reschedule due to COVID! The chuppah came out absolutely incredible! They truly took the ideas we had and brought them to life. Even though we were not exactly certain at every moment what we wanted, they helped to really define our vision. They are extremely helpful and answer every question. Working with them was a delight and we are excited to use them again for the second part of our wedding next year.
