One of the best parts of my job is getting to work with talented artists and makers; either selling their goods, introducing our customers to them at events, or (and especially) collaborating with them to create beautiful things.
Among the sea of talented women I love and admire for their creativity, none impress me more than Lora and Emily of LOREM. As the team who I’ve worked with from the start to bring both boutiques to life, I couldn’t wait to get started on a brand new collab of Prism-inspired pieces. From fixtures and displays to complete build-outs, our stores are literally filed with their gorgeous handiwork and I’m so excited to give our customers the chance to bring their work into their homes.
After working with Emily and Lora on a successful collab in 2017, we knew we wanted to continue making pieces that incorporated plants, but more elevated so customers really felt like they were bringing some of Prism home with them.
By creating a cohesive collection that not only includes plant hangers and stands, but small furnishings and art, you can bring several pieces together to recreate the feel of Prism in any home. And because they’re so versatile, they look great anywhere - no matter the design. Lora describes the pieces best as a “modern take on the laid-back, California-cool vibe. We stuck with the raw plywood that is integral to Dayna’s aesthetic. We brought in the raw leather and rope from our previous plant hanger installation, and we kept to a mostly neutral color palette with her favorite golden yellow and a light sage to play off the plants. The arches in these pieces are inspired by Prism’s fixtures and fitting rooms.”
And since we’re still not over plants (plants, plants, and more plants please!) I really wanted to create a few new stands with a whole new look. Lora says, “Plant stands have really become popular since our first collaboration, to the point that you can find the typical plant stand/hanger in just about any big retailer now. So we really wanted to push the design of these pieces to truly echo the vibe of Prism. Inspired by the classics, but modernized using materials in unexpected ways.”
I’m so proud of the newest collection of home goods and beyond excited to see our vision come to life through their hands and into your homes.
