Probably my favorite part about working at Anthropologie was creating the window displays. My store had such a huge window space. . . there was incredible opportunity to make an amazing statement! And that’s what Anthro and what I am all about. . . eye catching, jaw dropping, inspiration giving designs!
Have you seen the new “sea inspired” windows Anthros all over the US are sporting right now? Many of them chose to focus on a coral like display, but there were some that went with a little different approach. Let’s take a look!
This store in Alexandria, VA went with a coral reef look. The hodge podge of different “corals” could look like a big mess, but it doesn’t. It is incredible. I could only wish for a little more color.
This window in Troy, Michigan opted for an oversized coral-like look.
I love how delicate and light the pieces look. Very nice job indeed.
This store in Indianapolis, Indiana decided against coral and instead inspired with a school of jellyfish.
In Princeton, NJ, the store’s artist created a huge octopus sculpture. Not my favorite display, but still very impressive!
Of course New York has some amazing displays to drool over. This window in Upper East Side store has another incredible coral feel. . . plus a fun hanging chandelier of sorts.
I also found this coral made from q-tips and wax to be particularly inspiring! 🙂
For those of you wondering. . . every Anthro store display is different. Each store has their own in-house artist (called the Display Coordinator) who is in charge of creating the amazing displays. Anthro comes up with new window concepts every couple of months or so and sends these concepts to each store. Along with the concept comes a few photos from stores that have been asked to take the concept and create prototypes to serve as inspiration for the rest of the stores. Depending on the artist in the store, he/she may choose to copy the prototype or come up with something a bit different.
So, do you like the “sea inspired” windows?! I’m definitely a fan! 🙂
