CFD’s Flowers at Ralph Lauren’s New Flagship Store

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Our friends at Ralph Lauren Creative Services have successfully put together yet another dramatic stage set with their new Flagship store at 888 Madison Ave. This recently opened 22,000 square feet palace is devoted to Womenswear and Home, and is located across the street from the Rhinelander Mansion, that is now a companion Menswear only store.

We went to visit the store for the first time yesterday to check out our Silk flowers that were ordered for the exterior window displays. We were amazed at each of the windows and felt that the Ralph Lauren team have outdone themselves. No detail was spared. Each of the window displays could have stood alone as a three dimensional painting.

When we stepped into the store, we noted that every inch of the space is staged comprehensively from floor to ceiling with carefully chosen rugs, furniture, and props. Candle scent permeated the whole store and we felt as if we were at home, a very opulent home. The large space was broken up into a number of masculine dens, feminine canopied bedrooms, and formal dining rooms. It was a delight to wander in and out of this work of art. We are more than excited to visit again for the Holiday displays.

Fall Season Notes

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Fall is usually a pretty busy time for us. It is the peak time for holiday orders as well as the time for us to put together products for next year. It is especially fortunate that we work right next to fresh flower and plant suppliers. Everyday, we walk past brilliant seasonal flora on our way to our store. One of our most recent projects is to capture this Bittersweet berry color below in artificial form.
