Running with Scissors Studio Amazing Gift

Yesterday Running with Scissors Studio was our last appointment of the day and I have to say that it became a wonderful surprise when we received beautiful thank you gifts from Delores and Andrew, our clients. We received a stunning pillow and a box of Bernard Callebaut Chocolate Truffles that I don’t want to share!

Delores is an amazing artist and she custom-made and designed a very sophisticated pillow for us with Black Kravet Couture Crushed Velvet and Pewter Silk complete with beautiful embellishments such as Silk Shibori Ribbon, a beautiful Kravet Trim, and an image of my favourite photograph in the studio printed on cotton and framed with two layers of Silk Piping. Even the sides of the pillow are perfectly detailed with Pewter Silk and Silver clasps with silk ribbon.

Of course we had to place the pillow in the best seat in the studio Greg’s Barcelona Chair. All the details in the pillow blend perfectly with the studio.

I honestly got goose bumps – I was not expecting a present at all – but I am glad I did! We have been working with Andrew & Delores to develop the branding and the design for their new business Running with Scissors Studio – Art Quilting Supplies. This project was comprised of logo adjustments, a stationary package and promotional materials as well as our first e-commerce site.

All of Running with Scissors Studio printing materials were printed on 100% Post consumer waste fibre as part of their commitment to incorporate environmentally responsible and sustainable practices into their business processes.

thats a stunning pillow indeed - it looks fantastic on your chair...

i liked the IKEA post previusly also...

don't you think IKEA produce some amazing ranges now - their almost verging on the boutique-esque vibe with some of their products... which is great to see that the masses can afford and achieve that look.... but then where does that leave the boutique-esque style for us as designers...

where to now for our clients...

The lady in the picture is Salma Hayek - She did a photo shot for Vanity Fair years ago. I loved the picture and I frame it.
