Artificial Flowers Cheat the Seasons
Our flower muse is Fleur Cowles (1908 - 2009), the great writer, author, editor and diplomat. In a book about decorating with flowers, Cowles summed up how we feel about artificial silk flowers too. She says: "...silk flowers are now socially classless - found in castles and cottages and everywhere in between."
As a matter of fact, our artificial flower arrangements are made by Diane James whose silk flowers are used at The White House!

Diane James silk flowers are always in style. Diane James flowers are sold at stores like Bergdorf Goodman and decorators use them all the time. Mario Buatta, the famous "Prince of Chintz" had a room photogaphed for Architectural Digest with Diane James artificial flowers in it.
Decorating ideas for using artificial flowers are endless. Place a silk flower in your front hall to welcome you and your guests cheerfully; put one in your bedroom to add a pretty bedside accent; put one in the bath to add freshness. Nature's designs look beautiful everywhere and a home without flowers can be rather cold. Don't you agree?
Artificial flowers and decorative fruit from Diane James are a gift that lasts. Anytime you would give real flowers for a gift, but want something more lasting, think of giving artificial flowers. As Fleur Cowles said, though some artificial flowers are expensive to buy, they are long-term bargains because they only 'die' when dirt, dust and a considerable passage of time have wilted them.
