Our Story

Terry Furuta Designs fuses the exotic and the sustainable into imaginative and long lasting arrangements of orchids, mosses, air plants and other locally sourced accent plants. These inspired creations honor principles grounded in Japanese ikebana design and sustainability.

Unique floral designs are showcased in containers hand made by local artisans – glass blowers, steel welders, wood carvers and potters – all created exclusively for Terry Furuta Designs. Masterfully, Ms. Furuta incorporates the container, the plant material and the negative space created by each to make one-of-a-kind living, lasting sculptures for the home or work space.

Orchid floral arrangements can last for months with surprisingly minimal care. That’s why Terry Furuta Designs floral arrangements make special gifts – combining the emotional and sensory experience of traditional flower arrangements with the long lasting benefits that the gift of a house plant affords.

It all started when...

Terry Furuta Designs has grown from Terry's 30 plus years in the floral design business. Terry is a certified Professor of the Ikenobo School of Ikebana with over 20 years experience studying under Senei Ikenobo. Her arrangements have received numerous awards at the Southeastern Flower Show including the prestigious Rebecca Wight Cherry Sims Trophy. Terry has won the People's Choice Award trophy in 2015, 2016 AND 2017 at the Atlanta Orchid Society.

Seeing an unfulfilled need in the floral industry for sustainable floral arrangements and floral design, Terry started Terry Furuta Designs. Today the array of orchid and botanical arrangements, terrariums and faux floral arrangements she designs and sells are created for lasting beauty while reducing the industry's drain on our environment.
