BUUNCH.com, market leader in floral subscriptions expands to Long Island, the Hamptons and beyond
As COVID-19 has driven the demand for the weekly arrangements per rooms/spaces in homes, offices, restaurants, hotels to Long Island, the Hamptons and other areas outside of Manhattan, it has made more and more sense to "grow roots" out East with a Hamptons presence.
"We are beyond excited that our launching of Buunch as a subscription model, beyond gifts and individual orders has been conducive to the new normal of the Covid and even post-pandemic world," says founder Caroline Bailly. "We love that [it] has been embraced by clients, old and new- making their lives bright, colorful and easier, with one less thing to worry about."
Buunch continues to thrive under the international influence of ounder Caroline Bailly and Creative Floral Director Takaya Sato, known for their clients such as fashion institution Dior and the Michelin-starred Marea with a unique blend of art, ikebana and flower therapy using internationally sourced flowers of the highest quality.
Caroline Bailly: Before founding L'Atelier Rouge, famed NYC floral and event design company in 2010, Caroline worked under the tutelage of Olivier Guigni and developed a detailed knowledge of luxury floral services designing both large scale events and small residential intimate floral decor. Arriving stateside in the late 90's, Caroline practiced her skills managing events for Daniel Boulud and Geoffrey Zakarian, building off of her training from the prestigious Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne in Switzerland where she majored in the impact of environmental design and customer behavior.
Takaya Sato: Recognized as a classically trained ikebana master in his native Japan, Takaya is the craftsman behind Buunch's cutting-edge floral arrangements. After beginning his training back in Japan more than twenty years ago at his father's flower shop, Takaya has been designing for some of the most elite events in New York and around the globe and brings his refined sensibility to Buunch.
