1. New Growth — New Growth features artificial flowers that are done so well they look real! Ed Glenn, the designer at New Growth, grew up in his family’s fresh flower business. As a successful business for over 60 years, Glenn has had ample sources of inspiration and it shows through his truly unique and spectacular arrangements.
Since we’re dealing with permanent botanicals, these flowers can stand up to the summer heat in your home or on your covered porch. New Growth even offers a handful of UV-tested products that won’t fade in the sun. We love the the pop of color from a hydrangea-filled vase. Place an orchid on a stack of coffee table books for a sophisticated and pulled-together look!
2. Kriss Lecocq Pillows — The perfect level of comfort and style all in one. This line of handmade 100% cotton products for the home stuffed with down + feather insert and has been washed for a livable and comfortable feel. With each piece, the black ink varies intentionally, creating a worn vintage look. Even better—the cases can be bleached and go through the wash cycle. That means they can be put to the kid-test!
These pillows are high on our favorites list because not only are they cute and some kitschy, but they can truly fit in with any style—traditional, contemporary, coastal, and anywhere in between.
3. Jan Barboglio — Jan Barboglio didn’t always start in iron work accessories, but rather in clothing with her sister. After years exploring the clothing industry, she transitioned into the accessory business and started with metal candelabras. Her work now incorporates glass, wood, mortar and wax. Barboglio is also widely known for her blessings crosses, each one as unique as the next. Her use of iron as well as her inspiration from nature and religion set her apart from other accessory lines.
We love the sentiment behind Barboglio’s items and think they make great gifts for the wedding season. We love to fill the glass vessels with fresh flowers or display the decorative pieces on a bookshelf.
4. JM Piers — New to our stores, JM Piers offers fun and whimsical accessories. Whether you are looking for bathroom trays or funky mirrors, they will have something for you. We recently received a shipment of vibrant Vueve Brut & Big Baer Cigars trays, match holders and cocktail napkin trays. The glass cork holders give a fun new way to remember a special event, date or occasion.
We are loving these items for summer because they make great host and hostess gifts, and even wedding gifts or favors. The pieces packed with style and personality. Bring one to your next party and you’ll see what we mean.
