Dispensary Design Trends


Welcome to Vermont as the most recent state to legalize recreational use! Are you starting up a dispensary in Vermont? Adding rec to your menu and inventory? Want to give your dispensary an identity and some brand recognition? Change up your layout to be more recreational friendly? Now is the perfect time to design (or redesign) your space and optimize your dispensary.


Being one of the few dispensary only interior design firms, we get to gauge style and trends specific to the industry, and across the country. It’s a great place to be, not limited to one state or region. We look closely at what our customers want and tailor the design to comply with heavy laws, security and regulations. Even with all the mandated regs, we incorporate beautiful design, perfect traffic flow and unmatched product placement.

Your first place to make a lasting impression is the entry/waiting room area. Our clients know what their customers want, a place to check the menu, check in on social media and a security check as well. Waiting rooms have gone from rope lines to comfy, beautiful mini lounge areas packed full of tech. Think menu screens and ipads for easy online ordering. The waiting room is a great spot for that selfie and #’s. This is a great spot since it doesn’t eat into the selling floor or jam foot traffic. Check out this fantastic guide to creating your own unique selfie spot HERE.

Flora Terra gives their customers a live peek into their growing and manufacturing facility. We designed a simple picture window to connect the client to the product in a farm to table sort of way.

Living walls, interior or exterior, are an eye catching connection to the plant and the origin of the industry. People love them. Why do one wall when you can do the whole building?
