Creative owner Christiane Zweifler was born and raised in Germany. After receiving two Master of Arts degrees and establishing a successful corporate career, she achieved her lifelong dream and opened the Flora Nova design studio in Seattle in 2003. In the 20 years since opening its doors, Flora Nova Design has grown from a small home-based business to a large operation in a downtown warehouse with many employees.
In her spare time Christiane enjoys hiking and backpacking the Pacific Northwest mountains. At home you often find her in her backyard where she grows a variety of cut flowers.
