THE TEAM

Our Team

EMILY PINON
PARTNER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Growing up in New England’s countryside, surrounded by fragrant lilac, lush peonies, and delicate lily of the valley, Emily Pinon developed a love for flowers and design. Later, she flourished in Paris where she worked alongside some of the city’s most renowned designers. Immersed in a world of luxury and fashion, she returned to New York City and established herself as a preeminent force in the design community. Before long she was lauded for her dynamic and inspirational designs, and she quickly acquired a loyal and sophisticated clientele. Emily and the team enjoy traveling all over the globe producing exquisitely crafted and one-of-a-kind events. Emily currently lives in Manhattan with her husband and son.
