Larisa Designs: A Rose by Any Other Name
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

Larisa Shlahet counts among her loyal clients "Sex and the City's" Cynthia Nixon and corporate biggies like HBO, JPMorgan Chase, Citibank, and the Corcoran Group. They all know a good thing when they see (and smell) it, and Shlahet manages to provide a very good thing: solid value at a good price. Because she doesn't maintain a storefront shop, she can create not only exquisite floral arrangements, but also deliver price-conscious style -- and she's got quite an artful eye and a polished flair for design. Her jobs span smallish dinner parties to large-scale events, and her $100 arrangements look more like what you'd get from a "fancy" florist for much more than that. (Her minimum job is $300.) She loves to mix fruits and vegetables in with her bouquets as well. At holiday time, she might surround an arrangement of red blossoms with candy canes, or immerse green limes in a clear-glass vase below the water line, among the stems. By appointment only. 212-877-8733; www.larisadesigns.com (This article originally appeared in the 10/05 issue of Manhattan Living.)
