The thing that impresses me the most with Anthropologie is the level of creativity and detail that goes into their merchandising and displays, including their use of found items as fixtures. I have had the special opportunity to help set up the new Ottawa store, and snapped some photos within to highlight the thoughtfulness that went into every last stitch and nail. Their merchandising complements their delightfully detailed products.
The glowing name and curious quilt draw the viewer in.
Stenciling on the exterior
The vintage door at the front is mounted on a barn door track.
One of the found pieces is this huge light green chest--lovely colour and distressed surface.
Can you guess what this gigantic quilt is made of?
The bright Pantry section with rough mustard walls
A mural made of chicken wire, string, and muslin
Vintage printing screens used for display
A chandelier made of rubber bands
Found cabinet and clock
This end table
This winding display of colour changing leaves is made of cut, scored, and dyed manilla tags.
This sign is edged with sharpened pencils.
Stunning necklace and kimono
The moody blue wall makes these glamourous vases stand out.
The wall behind the cash
Luxurious and cheery textiles
Every last cactus flower and prickle is in its place!

This appears to have been a cookie tin. The bottom is stamped: Dirk Eden--Fabrikation feiner Teegebäcke--Jever, Friesland. I love the painterly scene and the scalloped band around the bottom and lid.
