Cue Britney Spears…
Oops I did it again.
After years of discussion, dreaming and planning, my partner in crime, Melanie and I finally launched our new globally inspired home decor line.
Allow me to introduce you to SmithHönig.
The concept for SmithHönig began probably 5 or 6 years ago. Melanie and I knew we wanted to join forces for a business but the timing wasn’t quite right for either of us. Years of conversations over coffee or booze and we would dream a little more, plan a little more, design a little more.
And then one day the conversation turned to ‘we need to be at Atlanta Market in January 2017.’
That was in June of 2016.
Ummmm, holy crap, ok let’s do it!
And we actually managed to pull it off.
So here’s Melanie…
Adorable, right? She’s the Hönig.
Melanie has a travel blog, Rover@Home. For all you wanderlusters out there, you are going to love it! It’s filled with fabulous locations, amazing destinations and great travel tips. Not only is she an avid traveler, she is a classically trained artist and photographer.
So we paired Melanie’s love of travel, art and photography with my love of travel, design and color and decided to create a home décor line that would bring global touches into your home.
So please check it out….
Here are a few of my favorites pieces…
Crespi Arch – Art on Leather
Simple, slightly abstract, almost neutral, yet still evocative of Moorish details and faraway places.
Sebra Stripe – Unique Patterned Pillow
A classic animal print, with the addition of an abstract bronze bar and drops of metallic paint to make it unique.
Forest Green – Luxurious Velvet Pillow
Elegant Velvet Pillow using exclusive SmithHönig fabric designs for contrasting welt. Removeable tassel included.
Vintage Gypsum – Unique Patterned Pillow
Centuries of peeling plaster on an ancient wall in Italy, layered with painted brush strokes and random stipples.
London Girl – Canvas Art
London was once known for its vibrant punk scene. The subculture still exists. We met Sheena on the tube near Kingâs Cross and asked her to pose.
All Love – Metal Art
This graffiti-like pattern embodies our global aesthetic and was the inspiration for our All Love Blog. (Check it out!)
We officially launched the SmithHönig line at the Atlanta Market in January!
Here’s a few shots from Market:
One of the elevators was designed with a few SmithHönig shots, how cool!
Here is one colorful corner of our booth at AmericasMart Atlanta – the largest wholesale marketplace in America!
Melanie and I were going for a rustic, bohemian vibe and by george I think we pulled it off!
A view of our booth from another angle. This chair MAY be my favorite!
We were honored to have been awarded the award for Visual Display in DECOR at this year’s America’s Mart!
We also had a fun photo shoot a few months ago to show off our recent SmithHönig collections.
Here are some of behind-the-scenes and final takes…
Everything you see below is SmithHönig!
So many textiles, patterns, and colour!
Isn’t this ginger absolutely gorgeous?
SmithHönig is still a work in progress. We are continuing to make upgrades to the website and add new products but there’s plenty to see!
We launched with art, pillows and fabric by the yard. We are adding furniture and jewelry, as well as one-of-a-kind items we find along the way.
Each and every piece and pattern has a story.
