After creating florals for events and editorial projects in New York for almost 10 years, Buunch began as a way to share the flower magic with clients on a smaller scale. Our experienced design team is the powerhouse group behind L'Atelier Rouge events and floral design, and is an international mix coming from America to Japan, and more places in between! We are florists who love to create original and creative pieces with the flowers that we find interesting and unique, and our designs are made intentionally to highlight each bloom.
Buunch's amazing floral hunters source flowers that are seasonal, rare and exciting. We also want to make the shopping experience simple and fun. We offer a limited amount of designs at any given time, so you won't have to scroll through dozens of arrangements to find your favorite. Organizing our arrangements by color makes the ordering process simple, instinctive, and enjoyable! Check out whatever color is calling you, and be sure to check out our Subscriptions page where we offer dynamic arrangements designed for specific spaces in your life (this might be our favorite page, and it will always be arrangements that you won't see anywhere else).
Before founding L’Atelier Rouge, famed floral and event design NYC based company in 2010, Caroline worked under the tutelage of Olivier Guigni, and developed a detailed knowledge of luxury floral services either when designing large scale events or small residential intimate floral decor. Upon her arrival in the late 90’s, Caroline practiced her skills managing events for Daniel Boulud, Geoffrey Zakarian, building of her training from the prestigious Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne in Switzerland where she majored on the impact of environmental design and customers behavior.
Caroline strongly believes that Flowers and plants have a positive impact on our behavior, health, bring memories and feelings.
When you work in hospitality, you need to understand how to visualize and understand the way the entire event and space work together. Coordinating the flowers, linens, and other decorative elements makes sure that we create something that’s cohesive and beautiful, but always functional.
Recognized as a classically trained ikebana master in his native Japan, Takaya is the craftsman behind our cutting-edge floral arrangements. Although he’s expanded his style repertoire beyond the strict confines of this art form, elements of ikebana continue to influence his method.
There’s a pervasive sense of minimalism, which allows him to recognize and make use of the nuanced qualities of each plant – their texture, color, patterning, and contours to create a harmony. After beginning his training back in Japan more than twenty years ago at his father’s flower shop, Takaya has been designing for some of the most elite events in New York and around the globe and brings his refined sensibility to L’Atelier Rouge.
It is important to to honor each distinct flower, as well as the way they interact with one another. I like to create arrangements that aren’t so precious, that change the way you may look at flowers.
