Born and raised in California farm country, Lewis Miller developed a respect for nature at a very young age. After years of successfully pursuing his interest in design, flowers and event planning, Lewis moved to New York City in 2000 where he worked for one of the city’s top floral boutiques.
In 2002, Lewis launched his own company: LMD New York, Lewis Miller Design. It quickly became one of the premiere floral design houses in New York with clients including Bulgari, Carolina Herrera, Richard Meier, Mayor Bloomberg and JP Morgan Chase, just to name a few. With over a decade of experience, LMD has grown into one of the most sought after and well-respected multi-event production houses in the world. His most recent projects include securing the highly-coveted Central Park Zoo gala and writing his first book, Styling Nature: A Masterful Approach to Floral Arrangement.
Miller is also the creator of ‘The Flower Flash’, street art installations made of flowers. Miller repurposes flowers from events when he can to create pop-up street installations. These floral works of art are created under 15 minutes and all made before dawn. Miller’s business focuses on flowers and fantasy, transforming key life moments in his client’s lives into magical, everlasting memories. The impetus for the flower flashes was to recreate just a sliver of that sentiment and offer it to everyday New Yorkers and the tourists that visit this great City. His main vision is to create an emotional response through flowers.
