The Bouquets of Chenonceau, Hardback Book

The Bouquets of Chenonceau Hardback

Hardback

Description

After twenty years in his flower shop in Saint-Avertin, florist Jean-Francois Boucher left the family business to follow his heart and focus solely on his art, without having to put energy in the obligatory commercial flower work. And where better to do this than at the stunning Chateau de Chenonceau, one of those fairytale type castles in the French Loire Valley.

Since 2015 Jean-Francois has been floral scenographer of the estate.

Together with his small team he creates new floral compositions for the castle's rooms every week.

These 'staged' flowers emphasise the history of the estate just like any other piece of art or furniture does.

Their designs blend in perfectly with the interior and decoration and are in beautiful harmony with the room's colour code, its perfume and its function.

Sometimes they even wink at poetry, art or the historical events that took place in these spaces.

The Bouquets of Chenonceau is a magnificent coffee table book that will please both lovers of history and fans of floral design. Text in English and French.
