Language of the GardenTM Collection blossoms with New Introductions by NDI at International Home Furnishing Market

Natural Decorations, Inc. (NDI) introduced the “Language of the GardenTM” WILLIAMSBURG® collection here today at the International Home Furnishings Market. The new permanent arrangements – more than 80 pieces inspired by the world-renowned gardens of Colonial Williamsburg – complement the holiday collection that debuted in the spring, and provide color and beauty throughout the year.

Today’s home reveres and continues the heritage of early America reflected in the numerous 18th-century gardens of Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area, the restored capital city of colonial Virginia. Then, as now, gardens were an essential element to elegant, civilized living. NDI’s newest creations provide ample opportunity to bring the exuberance of nature into the home, enlivening any room setting.

The saturated colors of the new arrangements lead today’s hottest color trends. Glorious roses flourish in shades of pink, yellow and salmon. Sunflowers light the way from spring to fall in rich hues from vibrant yellow to deep cinnamon. Herb gardens blossom with soft shades of sage, lavender and rosemary, while a blue-white collection features white tulips, forget-me-nots and larkspur.

The new introductions reflect extensive research in Colonial Williamsburg’s gardens by NDI designers, capturing the eternal essence of the Historic Area’s breath-taking gardens.

“NDI has captured the spirit of Williamsburg’s gardens and historical plants with a tremendously varied collection,” said Lori Williams, Colonial Williamsburg product manager. “Customers are going to be thrilled with its breadth and beauty.”

“We are extremely pleased to introduce the WILLIAMSBURG collection,” said Joe Gordy, NDI president and director of product development. “It is a timeless look into the wonder of the gardens of Colonial Williamsburg.”

Gordy, a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) and one of the foremost floral designers in the U.S., ensures that the company uses only those flowers and colors found in nature. Headquartered in Brewton, Ala., NDI was founded in 1964 and has since diversified its product line to include fabric botanicals, permanent trees in natural wood and fabric floral reproductions.
