About Us

In Spring 2014, Ivy Muse released its first collection of four Melbourne-designed and hand-crafted plant stands. We’ve grown a lot since then. Built upon a commitment to cultivate wellbeing with plants, we design functional botanical wares that amplify plant-life within a space, utilising traditional techniques and local materials with integrity. We also scour the globe to offer you a tightly edited curation of unique and sustainable wares to enhance your connection to nature holistically. We take a curious, open-minded and service-centric approach to the work we do. We operate from a place of collaboration and value your input in what we create. We’re passionate about sharing the myriad life-enhancing benefits plants can bring people and believe that connection to Mother Nature is the cornerstone of wellbeing.

The Ivy Muse Journey

September 2014

IVY MUSE launches with a collection of four Melbourne-made plant stands with a feature on The Design Files.

February 2015

We launch our first tabletop stand; ‘Nest’.

August 2015

We opened doors to our first retail store in Greville Street, Prahran (in the back of Jacqui’s other shop ‘Signed & Numbered’)!

January 2016

We received our first overseas stockist! We wrapped
and sent off our first pallet of plant stands overseas.

We threw a party in our Botanical Emporium (and yep, we were pretty excited)

January 2020

A Chinese language edition of ‘Plant Style’ was released.

March 2020

Covid hits worldwide. Melbourne goes into lockdown, our botanical emporium has to close its doors so we pivot our offering to online only and begin our ‘Plant Style At Home’ video series - shot in our homes!

July 2021

After five years, our lease is up in High Street, Armadale! We move our Botanical Emporium to its new pop-up location in Wattletree Road, Malvern where we stay for three months (but the doors never
open thanks to Covid- argh)!

September 2021

Our second book ‘Nature Style; Cultivating wellbeing at home with plants’ is released in Australia. We’re pretty stoked.
