Product copy for Arhaus Furniture

“Early mornings on the pier, sunlight hits the dock a certain way. The Gulf shimmers and breaks. Even barnacles become gems, glittering with golden light. Inspired by these visions, we created our Soleil Wavy Shell Chandelier, a piece accented with layered shells and winding scrolls that capture the warm tones of those early mornings. Set at the center of a room, this chandelier reflects the transporting hues of a secluded coastal escape.”

“Une Génération Perdue. They lived in extravagance—felt the sweep of silk, the flow of champagne—and rose each day with beautiful and reckless abandon. Yet they were lost, disillusioned by their times. And where do the lost go?

Fashion Blog Post

Post advertising new collections + trends for independent retailer Substance

“In 1666, inspired by Persian court fashion, England’s Charles II introduced the vest through royal proclamation. A monarch with a fashion agenda! We like it. But the reason, as always, was a political one. The king wanted to present England as the wholesome repudiation of Versaille’s continental extravagance.

Imagine a solemnly-vested Charles II turning in his grave.”

“There are the fashion wallflowers and then there are the bold. The unafraid. Those who fly ahead of the flock. A little gothic and a little avian, this shag bag is as original as its wearer. Hundreds of hand-cut and individually sewn leather pieces spill from sturdy straps onto a round and roomy base. What will you stash inside? A weather-worn book of poetry? A skeleton key to mysterious rooms? Keep your secrets. This bag can hold them all.”
