We hope you will enjoy the AHS Summer 2012 Supplement. We have traveled far and near, by plane, train, ferry, bus, car, on foot, and by internet, to search for designs to meet your tastes and needs.
Along the way we picked up some interesting information on trends for 2012-2013 that you might find fun and even useful! Below are four distinctly different categories of design inspirations that we have been tracking.
This nod to vintage and shabby chic reflects a soft, feminine, simple sensibility featuring lovingly worn textiles, and finishes. Florals, pastels and strategically placed embellishments abound. See our new Cottage introductions to fulfill this customer's aesthetic.
These designs include updated interpretations of American and European traditional and country themes. Imagine natural, organic motifs featuring flora, animals, birds, water, soil, sand, and rocks in non-traditional color combinations such as purple and orange or grey and red. Let our new ceramic, weathered wood-looks and bird lamps bring an Up-Country look to your customer's decor.
Not to be confused with Nouveau Riche, Nouveau Lux could be viewed as it's opposite. Think simplified opulence, subtle luxury; luxury with a conscience. These designs reflect an appreciation for quality, nature, and the environment while maintaining an air of elegance. Introduce your customers to our super-value mercury glass lamps and scroll- work metal lamps.
Add punch, joy, and drama to natural, neutral, and gray interiors with hues of blues, reds and black. Let our custom lamp shades add splash to your customers' interiors. The Holidays will be here soon! Check out our festive new introductions on page B. And, as always, providing value priced gift and home decor lighting and lamp shades beyond customer expectations.
We look forwarding to working with you!
