TULA

Brook­lyn

Better Homes & Gardens - - Fresh -

Un­der a green­house roof retro­fit­ted onto a 1987 box truck, plants stay dewy on Brook­lyn’s streets. Tulita—the mo­bile shop of plant-de­sign brand Tula—fre­quents lo­cal mar­kets, coax­ing city dwellers in­side where it’s so lush that it gives new mean­ing to “con­crete jun­gle.”

For own­ers Chris­tan Sum­mers and Ivan Martinez, a big draw to hav­ing the shop in a truck is the in­ti­macy. “Un­like in big stores where you feel weird ap­proach­ing any­one, the tight space drops your guard,” Ivan says. Af­ter a few ques­tions (like which way your win­dows face at home and if you keep the AC on), the two will help you pick out a plant from the leafy throngs that, they as­sure you, you can keep alive. tula.house
