Behind the Booth

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the invitation below. We were so excited to participate in the Southern Ideal Home Show last month and walk away with 1st place!

Today I thought I'd give you a behind the scenes look at the preparation for our booth. We were challenged to take a 10 foot by 10 ft concrete square and make it something dynamic enough to attract the attention of 1000s of ticket holders. Emily, our Operations & Marketing manager, did and amazing job taking our vision from idea to reality. We were so inspired by this Eykon wallpaper that we based everything around that, even the invitation! 

We had wall built to surround our booth and had this amazing Eykon wallpaper installed. It made such a bold statement & the installation was complete in about an hour!

Next, we laid down a really cool vinyl flooring by Mannington. I wish that I had a better shot of it because it has a good shimmer to it. It was beautiful underneath cream velvet + brass chairs!

Emily sent us this short video the night before the show, before everything was in place. We partnered with Finds here in Raleigh to create a custom credenza that anchored the space. The lamps are from Z Gallerie, and the bar cart is from one of our wholesale vendors!

It was cool to see our logo loud & proud in this laser-cut acrylic.

FINDS specializes in creating a high lacquer on vintage pieces, and they were so gracious to create this one for us in Sherwin William's Adriatic Blue

And here's how it all came together! We couldn't have been more thrilled.

We had no idea that there would be prizes for the best booth in each category, so we were pleasantly surprised when one of the Southern Ideal staff approached us with this pretty award!

It felt awesome to be recognized for our hard work! And we're looking forward to working with the clients we connected with that weekend too. 

It felt awesome to be recognized for our hard work! We couldn't have done it without our partners at Eykon, Mannington & Finds! Thank you so much.

And we are most excited about working with the clients we connected with that weekend too. Thank you to everyone who came by and said hello!
