A floral designer with a penchant for found objects, Arthur Golabek’s two passions beautifully collide in his new East Hampton shop and studio. There, he lovingly creates arrangements, sells vintage wares and choreographs tabletop tableaus for clients and party planners.
While he personally leans toward an English style of arranging, where things are loose, mixed and “where each flower has its own place and feels special,” when it comes to clients, he looks to their home’s interiors to inform his individualized approach.
For a modern abode, a clean single flower arrangement is the ticket. For a more rustic space, perhaps something relaxed á la a Dutch still life. And for what’s surely going to be a busy entertaining season, Golabek wants you to remember these tablescape fundamentals: keep blooms low (as to not interfere with conversation) and scentless (as to not distract from the food).
