Synopsis

Named a Best Interior Design Book of 2020 by Food52

"A modern take on a centuries-old art that's breathtakingly simple."
-Booklist, starred review

At its heart, the Japanese art of ikebana is about celebrating an intimate connection with nature. To practice ikebana is to find inspiration in the seasons, favor unassuming blooms and branches, seek balance and simplicity, and remain fully present in the moment. It is a beautiful, pure antidote to our age of distraction and excess.

Honoring the lineage of ikebana while making the art their own, Amanda Luu and Ivanka Matsuba of Studio Mondine show us new ways to tell stories with flowers. They offer step-by-step instructions for dozens of stunning, seasonal arrangements, while in the process introducing readers to the themes and stylistic signatures of the art. In Studio Mondine's hands, this centuries-old practice feels undeniably fresh-and readers are given the gift of learning to create unique, meaningful, and authentic arrangements.
