Une Histoire de Famille
Founded by the Lange family in 1870 at 40 rue de Bourgogne, then perpetuated by the Savart family until 1977, the flower store will be taken over in 1978 by its two employees, Henri and Dominique Moulié under the name Moulié-Savart. At this time it was located 6 rue de Bourgogne.
Sous leur impulsion, elle se développera rapidement vers de plus grands locaux au 8 Place du Palais Bourbon dans les années 80, en proposant fleurs coupées et plantes d’extérieur; puis au 8 rue de Bourgogne dans les années 90 avec plantes et décoration intérieure.
In 2012, after 15 years as an employee within the structure, their older son Julien will take over the succession in its current form. His brother Thomas is in charge of the management.
Ideally located on a small and quiet square in the heart of Paris, Moulié store is facing the French National Assembly, close to the ministries, embassies and luxury districts of the capital. You’ll find here at the entrance a pair of massive camellias of 3.50m cut into spheres, a wide and generous line of arborescent and climbing plants coming from home productions, or selected from the best producers on the market.
Passing customers or regulars, neighbors, the “Tout Paris” of fashion, business and politics meet at Place du Palais Bourbon.
If our workshops regularly produce contemporary compositions (vegetal structures, creations inspired by Ikebana, complex assemblies, etc.); the identity of Moulié was first and foremost built on the alliance of a traditional, rigorous and timeless artisanal style; and optimal quality of plants.
In order to perpetuate and transmit this typically French know-how, Julien and Henri organize Franco-Japanese seminars via a partnership with the Association Française d'Art Floral (AFAF); demonstrations in France, Barhein, Azerbaijan, Taiwan…, and sometimes participate as a jury in competitions for young talents.
In this dynamic of optimal qualitative research, the Maison Moulié acquired in the 90s its nurseries in Brittany, it can now produce on its own around 10 to 30% trees in pots, flowers and foliage (magnolias, camellias, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, maples, etc.) that it sells.
And then, transit greenhouses in Ile de France, allow, in addition to the maintenance of the park of plants intended for event rentals (jasmines, ivies, bamboos, etc.), to acclimatize imported specimens (olive trees centenarians, citrus fruits and bay laurels from Italy, Belgian buxus moles, Asian Bonzais etc.) to local weather conditions, thus improving their survival in relocation.
