in the news: anthro steps up its home game

March 10, 2011 in fashion by Lauren

I woke up this morning to discover some very exciting news through design blog decor8 – my favourite store, Anthropologie, is launching a decorator concept!

That’s right – following the success of the accessories concept store in DC and recently launched shoe store in London, it’s now time for home wares to get a look in.

According to decor8, the workshop-style decorator shops will roll out in twelve existing Anthropologie locations in the US and UK later this month and – here’s the best part – their website will mirror their offerings.

New features include design books and magazines, decorating tips and tools (like wallpaper calculators and a glossary) and even the ability to request fabric swatches.

The new “For the Decorator” section on the website will launch in one week on 17 March. This news couldn’t come at a better time for me because I just picked up the keys for my new apartment last night! I can’t wait to deck it out with all the beautiful new offerings.

Head over to decor8 for the full details.

Also, if you’re an Anthro fan like I am, make sure you come back on Monday because I’ll have a little something you might be interested in…
