These were the words our creative team kept returning to as they developed the look and mood of the holiday story to be on display during the summer market season. The words, part of a larger essay on the holiday season, seemed to encompass all that the season brings to life in the hearts of many.It further inspired the team to cling to the idea of lightness and darkness at play together, the quiet mystery of wintry scenes, and the return journey home.
At its heart, the story showcases a child’s tale about a fox, Eloise, and a hare, Eric, two unsuspecting friends that relish in the innocence of imagination and the joy of being home again. Illustrated by our creative consultant, Jessica Hiemstra, the concept brings a quiet playfulness to the magnificence of winter, and the clean whites of our new holiday pieces.The following illustrations are used as larger than life storybook displays in the showroom, serving as a playful backdrop to the holiday collection.
With a modern spin on holiday display houses, candle holders, and christmas trees, the 2016 holiday collection sings of minimal shapes, Scandinavian-inspired design, and moody neutrals.
