I finally made it over to Furbish Studio last month and I just have to say “WHOA!” Situated in a turn-of-the-century warehouse in downtown Raleigh, this eclectic shop styled with unique furniture, inspired lighting, and modern artwork is a space I’d like to live in. Shop owner, Jamie Meares, has a design style that is a force to be reckoned with — just check out her blog, I Suwannee, and you’ll see. Keila Marino follows suit with her own funky flair, helping to curate this show-stopping collection and oversee the online shop.
Keila described Furbish’s style to me as “Eclectic, Southern, Preppy” and it is definitely that and then some. We’ve put together today’s inspiration board with hints of retro goodness, along with lots of color, pattern, and pizazz.
Brand Tip: Keep your eyes open for exciting, off-beat items that might inject some added personality into your wedding day. I found a frame and an old letter “A” at Furbish and, though I was on a strict no-shopping regime, I knew that they could be used for the wedding to add some detail to our decor.
That’s right, this month we’ve got one heck of an awesome giveaway featuring two brilliant items! We’re giving one lucky reader a pair of Mr. & Mrs. Cocktail glasses, hand-picked by Keila Marino of Furbish just for us, AND a coveted copy of Design Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney. Since we couldn’t buy and ship the whole Furbish Studio, we got the next best thing to help you style your new couple-y nest.
We’re switching things up this month — we want to hear what the funkiest part of your wedding is/was/will be. Leave us your comment below and we’ll pick a favorite Friday at noon (Eastern time). The winner will be announced on Sunday, March 11!
