It’s spring – by Jennifer Huynh favorite season. “I love spring flowers here in New York,” says Huynh, founder of forward-thinking floral studio Future Flowers. “We have a cold, dark winter – so when spring comes, not only am I happier [in general]but I’m happy to use the new spring flowers that are coming to the markets – the wildflowers and grassy elements that become more abundant during this time.
As founder of Future flowers, Huynh has worked with some of the biggest brands in the country – from fashion and beauty stalwarts like Christian Louboutin and Saie to Cash App, the billion-dollar payment service. Her background in the fashion industry is evident in the beautifully measured aesthetic of her work – never too much, always surprising, eternally new. For all these reasons, we were delighted to ask Huynh to answer some of our burning floral questions: how can we make our home bouquets a little more beautiful? Who does she most want to work with? And why are so many bouquets stuck in seasons long past?
As for that last question, she has a theory: “The idea behind floral design has grown a lot,” she says. “I think these days we see a lot of artists pushing what floral design can be – so what we might have thought a centerpiece has maybe changed a bit and become more modern. the industry has kind of pushed forward and grown, so these bouquets that we may have seen in the mainstream maybe seem a little dated – just because of the energy and the l abundance of certain flowers and [because] how we use them now has changed.
