The Pulse homewards and accessories show has just finished at Earls Court in London, and although this show is aimed at store buyers the suppliers always create great displays.
This year the main visual trends i saw were the use of upcycled furniture, bold colours and blackboard paint with chalk outlines.
Here are a selection of photos for you to peruse and borrow ideas from.
As designers we add graphics to architecture to bring life, excitement and impact to our retail and hospitality spaces.Infused Veneers, a new line of panels from B&N, gives designers a library of 100′s of images to work with.
Digital images are printed onto various species of wood veneer, including maple, cherry and walnut. The panels are available in 48”x96” and can be used with any of the B&N merchandise display systems including the Puck system.
I really appreciate the seemingly randomness, or rustic quality of these images. We’ve seen more and more of these large format murals from other product lines, including Maharam’s Digital Print collection.

After popping into Williams Sonoma I went next door to see how sister company Pottery Barn was looking and I wasn’t disappointed. The store was looking great lots of visual displays and great products.
Whilst in the big apple the other weekend I popped into my favourite bookshop Williams Sonoma.

Firstly apologies for no post yesterday, I have had problems with my internet connection.
Todays post is about one of my favourite retail companies Anthropologie. I was in Edinburgh the other week and popped into their new store, which is their third in the UK.
As usual they did not disappoint, the store was packed full of visual features and fabulous ideas.
I’ll let the photos do the talking.
Thank you Anthropologie for creating truly amazing stores, I look forward to seeing your next one.
Love this new modula design system could make great feature wall sin stores.
IXXI is a modular hanging system that joins cards together in a pattern to create wall art. The Dutch company lets you enlarge a single image, create a collage, or create an abstract pixelated piece of your choice. You can upload your own image or choose from their catalog of images. The image is then enlarged and divided onto the high quality matte ixxi paper. Each printed card is 20 x 20 cm (close to 8 inches square) and joins together with their x’s and i’s to produce a wall piece or room divider.
