Fall Preview: Modern Vintage

Wisteria – Updated Heirlooms

As we head into New York today to put the final touches on our booth at the International Gift Fair, we thought you might enjoy a sneak peak at our new Fall/Winter collection – Modern Vintage.  We all know that mixing the old with the new is not a recent trend in fashion or home decor but with the current popularity of the Fiat Abarth 500 and the “flea market meets loft chic” vibe of Restoration Hardware and Wisteria, we couldn’t help but design a collection that combines vintage and modern elements.  Juxtaposing different eras and styles provides both contrast and harmony in a room or in a home accessory and the more surprising the mix, the better.

Amaryllis and Orchid Bouquet in Crystal Bowl

That’s why we paired a contemporary bouquet of vibrant green hydrangea mixed with ranunculus and passion flowers with a textured cream vase, reminiscent of Laguna vintage pottery…

and a classic white phalaenopsis orchid in an orange porcelain planter with clean lines (hello, Tangerine Tango!)

Phalaenopsis in Tangerine Scholar Vase

Homes need a history and a truly modern space would look cold without some vintage charm and the opposite is equally true, since contemporary elements help vintage decor stay relevant.

Dahlia, Rose and Orchid Bouquet in Cane Vase

Luckily our designs complement both modern and traditional spaces, adding life and pops of color where needed.

P.S.  If you’re walking the show, please stop by our booth on Pier 94 – #42059 and say hi!
