Jack is Back!

By Posted in - Fashion & Furniture PR on May 10th, 2011

We absolutely love our client Drexel Heritage, especially since we’re constantly getting new decorating ideas from them! Here is a trend we loved blogging about last week on the Drexel Heritage Blog — it’s one that we’ll have to incorporate into the Clairemont office somehow…

When it comes to furniture design, a royal wedding can mean only one thing: Jack is back….Union Jack, that is! In our first blog – Another British Invasion – we shared how we’ve been using the royal emblem in our new upholstery designs. Now, in the wake of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s recent wedding, there’s no doubt that the Union Jack is also making its way into showrooms across the country. Our proof? High Point Market.

In her recent trip to spring Market, Patricia Sheridan of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also noticed that the British trend has taken the country by storm. In her article, WhoWHATWhereWhy: British Home Furniture Invasion, she spotted the blue, red and white emblem on anything from clothes to bedding. Some designers, she wrote, took a bold approach, and some designers favored a more subtle approach. One of those was Drexel Heritage…

We opted for a more understated yet sophisticated look with our British-inspired ottoman/coffee table. The visual interest of this piece, our Connoisseur Ottoman featuring custom upholstery, was divided into four sections, each with an image of a British royal symbol, one of which being the Union Jack.

There is no doubt that in the coming weeks and months we will continue to see a celebration of British traditions. Be sure to share ways that you celebrated and/or decorated for the royal wedding in your home!
