About the Author

Amanda Luu and Ivanka Matsuba are the team behind Studio Mondine, a floral design studio based in San Francisco, California, which seeks to balance the simplicity of Japanese ikebana with the abundance of Western-style flower-arranging. Their work has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, Real Simple, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Architectural Digest, and they have created arrangements for Everlane, Google, Parachute Home, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and more.

Reviews

"San Francisco florists Amanda Luu and Ivanka Matsuba give the traditional Japanese art form a California spin. Their arrangements, featuring easy-to-find blooms like tulips, are designed to be riffed on at home."
--Martha Stewart Living

"A crash course in the ancient tradition's major philosophies, as viewed through a modern lens. . . [It invites] readers--including forward-thinking brides-to-be--to cultivate their own sense of self-expression."
--C: California Style Magazine

"More than a list of must-have items, each named arrangement project presents a specific mood and feeling, accompanied by elegant color photographs and, often, step-by-step instructions. Arrangement containers are themselves worthy of a museum installation. . . . A modern take on a centuries-old art that's breathtakingly simple."
