We have flowers for you. All shapes and sizes, colors and varieties. We called in an expert. Her name's Lidia and she's the genius behind La Fleuriste. For over a decade, she's gifted our showrooms and events with her floral design talent. She's taking us to flower school.
Lidia sees pure beauty in all the elements she works with. Everything she creates is sensitive to where it's placed. With this, she provides beautiful balance that unites nature and man-made environments.
Lidia tells us, "It’s about the quality of the vessel. It's like it knows how pretty it is. When filled with flowers it takes a step back, letting the blooms shine, offering support and subtle beauty."
Dear Home, all of these are for you...

One, Two, Three, More
"I rarely put just one stem in the Bud Vase—it seems to ask for more. The Single Stem is great for just one bloom (as its name suggests). If you're going with branches, they love the Multi Stem. When working with weighty elements, be mindful of balance to avoid a crash." Says Lidia, the queen of balance.
A stunning still life piece with or without flowers. Display vases as a family, mixed and matched, or on its own—we’ll leave that up to you. At once versatile and understated, it makes a beautiful addition to any room.
Floral arrangements needn't be expensive or even a luxury. Lidia says, "You likely have all you need in and around your neighborhood." Here's what's currently blooming and the vase they call for. Turn to the ol' Google for assistance in identification. Now, have fun!
Bud Vase: Roses, any kind. I’m loving the Cecile Brunners. Mexican marigolds, Nasturtiums, Geraniums, Herbs—mint, rosemary, oregano.
Single Stem: Scabiosa, Lavender, Poppies, Cottage Yarrow.
Multi Stem: Clematis, Dogwood (if you’re lucky to have it!), Smoke bush, Bearded Iris, any branches, even blueberries on the stem.
Finally, float! Use bowls for camellias, gardenias, and ranunculus.
"The Deep Serving Bowl been my go-to for larger arrangements for years," says Lidia. "The taller walls support softer stems, allowing them to hang naturally over the edge. The size is perfect. The proportions are perfect. Build it out or keep it compact. The arrangement is always appropriate for placing at the center of your table."
A Beautiful Couple
"The Tall Tumbler and Modern Cups are some of my favorite pieces to work with. The walls support the stems, so you can go a little higher with the display. These look especially beautiful when featuring one element—a simple floral design coupled with the clean lines of the vessel is always stunning." Easy, breezy. Thanks, Lidia.
An Edith Heath classic, designed in the 1980s. Our Bud Vase makes for a stunning still life piece with or without flowers. Display it as a family, mixed and matched, or on its own—we’ll leave that up to you. At once versatile and understated, it's a beautiful addition to any room.
