far away lands

I finally got some photos of the new store display! (scroll down a few entries to see what it looked like when the team was creating it) The inspiration started with our “Trip to Bali” theme for the last part of our Holiday collection. So a lot of elements of the display are Bali inspired, but then they expanded that idea to a broader travel theme. The above world map was embellished with sequins, glitter, even coffee beans…

These collages made of post cards and travel brochures decorate the walls.
And these tissue paper flowers were made by the display team. The idea was inspired by a flower offering ceremony performed in Bali.
The multi colored flags of dyed muslin were also inspired by decorations for festivals in Bali. You might recognize these flags from the holiday catalog or from the background in some product photos on our website.
Here is the front window display. The glare makes it a little difficult to see, but they used these really amazing fringed umbrellas, also used in the holiday catalog shoot.
These shots are from our store in Suburban Square right outside Philly. This store has an amazing skylight that the display team has made even more beautiful with flower garlands from India. If you’re near a store, go check it out for yourself!

So pretty… Haven’t seen the nearest one to me yet.. Just wondering.. Where do you get all the basic stuff in the stores, like the rugs and couches? (In Garden State Plaza) Is that handmade?I wanted to do something like that in my room at home.

kat–me too!!! I was thinking the same thing! I scouted out some nice pillows that reminded me of the Free people store’s pillows and what not but I want to just have all their rugs and couches and pillows in the store! So pretty… :)
