Everything You Need To Know About Flower Shopping

Center piece-obsessives (you know, those pinners who posted candelabras to their "Mediterranean Glam" boards long before we even knew what a candelabra was) must have breathed a major sigh of relief when luxe lifestyle outlet L'Objet opened its doors. Yep, the brand basically invented the recent global/gorgeous wave in home goods, and L'Objet has a strong, loyal following.
Naturally, we found a very stylish world traveler at the helm of the whole operation in Elad Yifrach, an L.A.-trained designer who turned his creative energies towards the tabletop all the way back in 2004.

To no one's surprise, Elad knows a thing or two when it came to the NYC flower scene, digging up the deets on his favorite local florists and sharing tips on perfecting the self-arrangement.
