About Us

Learn more about our story and why we founded Stays.

Charlotte: co-founder of Wow My Day, a florist enterprise that makes fresh flower arrangements. She designs bouquets, garlands, floral crowns for weddings, birthdays, business events etc. She adds a sparkle to any party, big or small.

John and Sam: co-founders of Bombay Studio, an e-commerce agency. After university they started a business in standing desks, Jaswig, that was later taken over by Fully and Knoll. It was in those companies that their love of e-commerce was stirred. And in 2020 Bombay Studio was born.

As the event sector was completely shut down during the pandemic, all Charlotte’s orders for fresh flowers were postponed for at least a year. Her business almost came to a standstill.

With Stays we try to find a creative answer to that problem. Charlotte’s love of beautiful bouquets is still as strong as ever, and so is her desire to make people happy with them. The switch we made was to choose silk as the material for her flowers.

We added up our experience in e-commerce and our florist skills and brewed an explosive cocktail: Stays!

Flowers and plants even bring the dullest space to life, we all know that, but busy people don’t always have the time to take good care of fresh flowers.

Stays stands for high-quality silk flowers and plants that we deliver at the door of your apartment, restaurant or business office.

We carefully pick the most beautiful flowers and plants and offer them at an affordable price. They don’t require any maintenance: you needn’t water them, cut their stems or clean the vases. The flowers don’t need light, only some dusting from time to time.

With Stays we want to offer people an alternative to fresh flowers and live plants without giving up aesthetics. Our alternative asks less care from you and moreover blends perfectly well with the mindset of ‘re-use’. Since silk flowers last longer, we consider them more sustainable.

It can’t be ignored that fresh flowers and plants have a wasteful footprint, according to research 45% of them never get sold. Stores purchase more flowers and plants than they can sell and many decompose before they are bought.

We choose for man-made silk, because we absolutely want to honour the beauty of flowers. We also believe in the constant process of innovation in this sector, recycled plastic is only one of them. We can't wait for a future where we have recycled silk and plastic in our products, but we aren't there yet.
