Since 1991, the Friends of Longue Vue have presented the Essence of Style
Design Symposium featuring top speakers in the fields of design,
horticulture, and art.
Each year the Symposium raises funds to support the preservation
of Longue Vue as one of New Orleans’ historic gems, and its role as
a cultural center that provides dynamic programming for the
New Orleans community.
Our featured speaker for the 2018 Design Symposium is Lewis
Miller, Master Florist. Miller studied horticulture and
landscape design in Seattle, Washington before moving to
New York to work for a top floral boutique.
In March of 2002, Miller created LMD New York City (Lewis
Miller Design) to showcase his talent and love for detail.
He has the beautiful ability to combine luxurious and
simple materials in a single and stunning arrangement.
Miller is also known for his “flower flashes”: spontaneous floral
designs that pop-up across the New York City landscape.
