Floral Contemporary

The Renaissance of Flower Design

Olivier Dupon


A vibrant celebration of the way in which perennially popular floral design has become the centre-stage art for interior decoration, public events and private spaces

See Inside


Flowers are associated with all the important events in our lives, whether celebratory or commemorative, but they can also cheer our everyday existence and enliven the spaces around us. This book shows just how.

Through the work of thirty-eight floral designers, we see ideas for flowers for every occasion, whether public – decorations for weddings, arrangements for banquets, installations for shops and hotels, accessories for fashion shows, exhibits for art shows – or private, in the form of simple but special displays for the home. Organized in alphabetical order, each florist is introduced with a short biography, then in their own words they explain the stories behind their floral arrangements. Illustrations include portraits of the florists, shots of works in progress and full-colour images of glorious finished displays. As a visual refreshment for stylists, florists and design professionals, and an indulgent treat for anyone who loves flowers or decorating their own space, this book is an inspirational confection.
