  There's something very unusual about TIGER LILY, Sarasota's most intriguing flower and antique destination. Only the finest flowers are used to create a lush, contemporary style. The shop itself is unrepentantly romantic and opulent. TIGER LILY is a place of unparalleled personal attention, custom design and international quality, where each piece is unique and beautiful. 

This concept is a collaborative effort begun by master florists Jim Carlton and Arthur Faria.

Jim Carlton started working with flowers while attending university. After moving to the Caribbean, he established APPLAUSE, which quickly became the foremost flower shop in the U.S. Virgin Islands. He numbered among his accounts all the major resort hotels on St. Thomas and St. John. Carlton lists among his credits numerous television commercials and print work, photo shoots for national magazines, and two feature films.

As co-owner of TIGER LILY, Arthur Faria has been highly praised for his award winning floral design. A New Yorker before his move to Florida, Faria was designer for RENNY, Park Avenue. While there, he created flower arrangements for the world famous Plaza and Carlyle hotels, and is instrumental is bringing a fresh new approach to the Sarasota market. Arthur has an extensive background in theater and holds a Doctorate Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

These gifted designers have established TIGER LILY as the new standard for creative floristry on Florida's west coast.

TIGER LILY offers quality, elegance, and incredible style.
