welcome to world of Bukiety Floral

Bukiety Floral was originally founded in 1996 by two passionate individuals who saw an opportunity in the market for a unique brand to be built offering stunning, unique, high quality floral arrangements that delivered not only a product, but an experience. We now call this the “Art of Floral.”


This artisty and passion is even demonstrated in the company name itself, “Bukiety”, which in Polish means bouquet or bunch of flowers and pays homage to one of the founders’ own Polish heritage. 


Over the last nearly 30 years, Bukiety has built a strong brand reputation for being Chicago’s Premier Custom Floral Design studio. It was a company built by its people, and dedicated to creating “Uroda,” the Polish word for beauty.

the "ART of decay" philosophy

As we create and deliver beauty/beautiful things and experiences through the Art of Floral, we also recognize the temporary and delicate nature of floral and encourage everyone to also appreciate the Art of Decay:

Whether it be the timeless changing of seasons, nature reclaiming lost civilizations and creating new forests, fields, and flowers, or the ephemeral beauty of floral arrangements, the “Art of Decay” reminds us all that nature is beautiful, powerful and fleeting. Flowers germinate, grow, bloom, and fade.  Their freshness cannot be embodied in any lasting work ever to be shown in a museum or gallery, and that is what makes them so special – it is a moment in time.

Beauty can also be found in the aging and fading elements of nature, creating something new & amazing even in their decay – the wilting, morphing petals and changing hues are part of that exquisite cycle. Our philosophy honors the temporary charm of each floral piece, from the stunning beauty of the freshest florals of new arrangements, to the beauty found in every slowly fading moment thereafter. This process doesn’t signify an end, but rather an opportunity for renewal, making way for a new floral masterpiece to be created and enjoyed, and the cycle repeated.

Embracing the “Art of Decay” allows everyone to cherish the temporal beauty and transient elegance unique to each creation, always with an anticipation of the joy of a new stunning unique creation once more.

In the “Art of Decay”, author Bruce Hopkins reflects on the truth and beauty in nature, concentrating on how important it is to listen to the voices of nature, and to live our lives accordingly.  Decay is part of that cycle of nature, and as he writes “it is not silent.”
