NORWALK, CT – June 5, 2018  Diane James Home, today’s luxury resource for faux floral arrangements, orchids, plants and trees, is pleased to announce that it will be one of the elite Sponsor Suppliers at Carpathia’ s 2018 Hospitality Summit taking place this September at the Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa.

 Co-CEO’s Carolyn McDonough and Cynthia Matrullo will be attending the event to present their company’s designs to decision-makers from architecture, design and hospitality firms through one-on-one meetings and adventure-networking excursions.  “We’ve shown our collections at so many trade shows over the past 20 years and are excited to try this new way of building lasting relationships. Carpathia promises to revolutionize how businesses network and we look forward to connecting with new clients at this summit.”

Founded in 1996 by Diane James, Diane James Homeis a family owned and operated faux floral design and manufacturing business based in Norwalk, CT.  Diane developed her passion for flowers while living in Europe, mastering the art of floral composition in England and France.  She turned to "faux" in the 1990’s when asked to create lasting arrangements for her clients' vacation homes and corporate offices, and perfected her signature "just-from-the-garden" style.  

With the help of her twin daughters, Carolyn and Cynthia, Diane designs two seasonal collections a year, inspired by the latest home décor trends. Handmade to order from the finest materials in the company’s Connecticut studio, the designs look so real, they are the accessory of choice for top designers such as Michael Smith and Celerie Kemble, and for high end hospitality clients like The Four Seasons, BR Guest and Turnberry Resorts.  The collections are also available worldwide at luxury specialty stores including Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, and online at www.dianejameshome.com.
