Originally from the South of France, Olivier Giugni, the self-taught floral designer behind L’Olivier Floral Atelier has always been at the forefront of creativity, influenced by the many elements of architecture and design in New York City. First recognized by the legendary Pierre Cardin, Olivier was hand-picked to create the look of Les Fleurs de Maxims in Paris, Tokyo and New York City.
L’Olivier’s avant-garde artistic vision, incomparable beauty and relentless attention to detail have established the brand as the ‘Haute Couture’ of floral creation. His one-of-a-kind arrangements adorn the homes and work places of celebrities and A-list New Yorkers from the worlds of fashion, finance and fine arts. From Restaurant Daniel to an 87th-floor city penthouse and Renée Fleming’s music room, Olivier’s unique talent blooms through his living medium, flowers.
Olivier partnered with French master perfumer Christophe Laudamiel to create environmentally sustainable, eco-friendly scented candles. He also wrote a book released by Simon & Schuster called, ‘Olivier’s Living Art: Style Your Home with Flowers’ prefaced by Catherine Deneuve. Olivier opened his first boutique in 1994 at 19 East 76th Street and celebrated his 20th anniversary with a complete renovation.
