Providence, RI, November 13, 2023 – SEMIA Studio, the floral products division of SEMIA, one of the nation’s fastest-growing floral enterprises, announced today the launch of a partnership with The Paper Store, a Massachusetts-based, family-owned, gift retailer for more than 60 years.
The SEMIA Studio collection is inspired by the beauty of the seasons and brings SEMIA’s signature style of transformative floral artistry to The Paper Store just in time for the holidays. The collection includes several hand-picked dried flower arrangements personally curated by SEMIA Studio’s founder, Semia Dunne.
“The Paper Store is proud to shine a spotlight on local, female-powered brands by giving them a home in our stores,” notes Meg Anderson Lavoie, Chief Merchandise Officer and Owner of The Paper Store.
“We are thrilled to be able to extend the floral artistry of the SEMIA brand to this retail product launch featuring a collection that invokes the beauty, deep colors, and rich textures of fall and winter on the New England coast,” said Dunne. “And, we feel we’ve found the perfect partner in The Paper Store.”
Dunne and her team have grown SEMIA into a multi-channel business based on the success of her flagship floral design company in the luxury wedding space. The rapid growth of her business has been driven by her ability to bring inventive, thoughtful, and inspiring floral design to life for events both grand and intimate in scale. In addition to the wedding and events floral design firm, the company also operates a nationwide wholesale flower distribution business.
The SEMIA Studio collection will be available at The Paper Store’s Cranston, Rhode Island location starting in late November. For more information, follow @SEMIAStudio and @FlowersbySemia. Visit www.semiafloral.com.
