Transcendent eco-luxe arrangements and installations created by famed floral designer Louesa Roebuck from seasonal flora foraged from the West Coast.

From acclaimed artist, author, and floral designer Louesa Roebuck, Punk Ikebana presents breathtaking installations and arrangements that unite the beauty of restraint with the exuberance of nature. Working with seasonal, locally available foraged flora and crafts from various regions of the West Coast, Roebuck aligns her deep commitment to the environment with her love of creating in harmony with her surroundings. Each chapter embodies her unique aesthetic, which is inspired by both the beauty of the region and the poetry of Japan, incorporating the enduring ethos of eco-luxe and zero-waste design. In addition to utilizing distinctive vessels, Roebuck plays with scale, showing readers how to cultivate their own eye to create centerpieces for their homes, from sweeping installations to intimate arrangements. These stunning compositions, which transcend tradition and venture into the realm of the cinematic, celebrate the wholeness of nature, inviting readers to embrace the elemental beauty right outside their doors.
