Conran Store Spring 2017 – Michelin House London

I love popping into The Conran shop when I’m in London, there is always so much inspiration to be found.

This spring they have turned their windows into rooms by adding in a sub shopfront as you walk through the doors, it also acts as a backdrop to the windows.conran-brompton-road-londonimg_1390

I have noticed a trend building over the last year for using Critall style metal window frames in many stores. But conran have also added simple blocks of colour to some of theirs, i saw  lots of stores using colour blocking whilst looking around London.

Conran have continued the colour blocking theme inside their store, using it to great effect on walls, architectural features and fixtures.

They are using it for way finding as well, helping to lead customers on their journey through the store.

I love this trend/style wall they have created in their furniture area, it really stands out and offers customers great simple information.

Love the clash of bright ribbons against this royal blue wall.

Where they do not have a surface to paint they have been inventive and used plants to add the colour.

Visual Merchandising Expertise for Farm Food Stores

Here at International Visual we spend our days making shops look good and getting them to perform better. We specialise in giving shops ‘make-overs’. Our input can make a visible difference in a very short timescale and often without the need for expensive shop fitting.

We have worked closely with several Farm Shops recently to create the right environment and promote their produce in the right way to get those extra sales. The photographs show the results and we take pride that we also get invited back because our ideas work!

Add visual theatre to your perimeter walls that reinforce your key messages and provide information, customers will read these whilst waiting to be served.

Add visual theatre to the exterior of your store by using visual props that make a statement and attract attention.

Invisible thread chandelier

Love this chandelier in Heathrow’s T5, it’s all hung from invisible wire, it must have taken ages to get the shape perfect.

Catering to ones customers!

Fortnum and Mason have struck upon a neat idea to increase sales in their Heathrow Terminal 5 boutique store.

They have just started selling mini hampers to take onto flights, quite clever as airlines don’t have the best reputation for their in flight cuisine.

They are using the tagline “Upgrade your In – Flight dinning”

Offering a lovely mini hamper which can be used again

Customers can choose from 5 menus, all stored in a fridge just inside the entrance.

Although i knew the quality would be good i thought the portions may be light, but having looked i was quite surprised by the amount of food they give you.

This is a great example of coming up with an idea for their captured shopper.

 

Club Player Nice – Facade foliage

Im in Nice for a few days holiday, but am still always on the look out for inspiration and great things that catch my eye.

This fashion store caught my eye as they had covered the top part of the shopfront with plants, now i did think that it was a real living wall from afar, on closer inspection they had used artificial foliage, but it still looked good and it shows that if you dare to do something different you do attract people.

Jo Malone – New interior design

Nice to see the Jo Malone shopfit design moving on, even if only slightly.

I like the introduction of real plant/flowers installations, loving this huge stone trough.

The simple use of colour is very effective.
