A gorgeously photographed new take on flower arranging using local and foraged plants and flowers to create beautiful arrangements, with ideas and inspiration for the whole year. Roadside fennel, flowering fruit trees, garden roses, tiny violets; ingredients both common and unusual, humble and showy, Foraged Flora is a new vision for flowers and arranging. It encourages you to train your eye to the beauty that surrounds you, attune your senses to the seasonality and locality of flowers and plants, and to embrace the beauty in each stage of life, from first bud to withering seedpod. Organized by month, each chapter in this visually arresting and inspiring book focuses on large and small arrangements created from the flowers and plants available during that time period and in that place, all foraged or gleaned nearby. The authors reflect on surprising and beautiful pairings, the importance of scale, the scarcity or abundance of raw materials, and the environmental factors that contribute to that availability. Whether picking a small tendril of fragrant jasmine, collecting oversized branches of flowering quince, or making a garland of bay laurel, Foraged Flora is an invitation to seek out the beauty of the natural world.

Olivier Giugni, the renowned floral artist, presents stunning portraits of his sumptuous creations in a variety of private homes, along with detailed descriptions of their design and placement—and recipes for a dozen of his signature arrangements. Life is color and color is life. This is the mantra of Olivier Giugni, founder and owner of L’Olivier, the sleek floral design atelier in Manhattan. Far from Brignoles, the Provençal village where he grew up, Olivier reimagines the warmth, whimsy, style, and bursts of color from his native France in a singularly contemporary fashion, and in doing so, he has become one of the New York area’s most beloved and acclaimed floral designers. Created from a breathtaking range of organic and sustainable material, Olivier’s work becomes living sculpture, drawing from and reflecting back the signature elements of its surrounding environment. True to this vision, his gorgeous, lush arrangements of dramatic flowers and plants inspire and transform every space they occupy. In Living Art, Olivier walks readers through the homes of eighteen of his clients as well as his own, pointing out how their art, furnishings, and design preferences engage in a call-and-response with his unique arrangements. Along the way, Olivier’s creative thought process is revealed, showing how composition, color, texture, and fragrance can have a subtle yet decisive impact on the energy of a room, enhancing and elevating mood and moment. Living Art’s spectacular images illuminate this master florist’s aesthetic approach in an accessible way. A gift for experienced arrangers or novices just learning to work with flowers, the book includes recipes for twelve of Olivier’s unique arrangements, offering novel ways to style flowers, plants, and foliage—from cascade to orchid garden to bouquet. The poetic, playful creativity featured in Living Art will move and spark the imagination of all those who are passionate about flowers.
