Vogue.com this week featured a few of our whimsical pieces in their most recent post inspired by Happy Menocal’s fab collaboration with Paperless Post. This creative story is all about entertaining with the colors of the artist’s adorable designs and it just so happens that our Orbix Hot Glass hand blown jug and August Morgan “Thirsty” camel cocktail napkins fit perfectly!

 

See below for the combination of product they placed together and if you click through to the story, be sure to click to the second slide to catch our products:

 

 

So a huge thank you again to our friends at Vogue.com – we love that our pieces inspired you! And to all our readers, enjoy!

This month, we’re feeling tribal and so is Traditional Home. In their digital issue, there is a beautiful array of tribal inspired fashion and home finds, and guess who is among the crowd? Taigan’s own Imperio Vida 100% Thai silk pillow. See below for more info and the actual spread.

 

 

These gorgeous pillows are painted as they are handwoven in the old tradition of Southeast Asia while also adding a modern, edgy yet elegant flair. They are all limited editions as only 10-20 pillows per textile roll are made. This makes each pillow unique as the materials are not manufactured. And as you can see, the colors in this pillow are vibrant and will brighten up any room in your home just in time for summer.

Happy shopping!

 

 

 

There’s no better way to celebrate the upcoming summer season than with shopping and treating yourself to new additions to your wardrobe. And we did just that last week thanks to the participation of 15 of our amazing designers in Nashville!

The gorgeous pop up shop was hosted at our CEO (and avid party thrower) Elizabeth Nichols’ home in Belle Meade and it was certainly done up to the 9’s with her fabulous taste, our stylish and welcoming designers, a Julia Reed book signing and of course Rosè and Mint Juleps! What could have been better??

See below for a round up of photos and stay tuned for our next big event – if you couldn’t make this one, we’d love to see you at our next one and if you did come, thank you.. we couldn’t have done it without you. Until next time!

Thanks again to everyone who participated with us and in the mean time, continue to follow our wonderful designers throughout this quickly approaching summer filled with parties, vacations, weddings and more. See below for all the fun!
