Mod Box by Juliana Horner

We’re so excited to welcome our latest designer to our stores – Juliana Horner with Mod Box.


Juliana, the young Nashville-grown Horner, has country roots for sure, but an oh-so-city-sophisticate polish as well. Personally, she wears her mother’s beauty with Katie Perry flair and her fabric collection reflects that same inventiveness.

A fan of vintage films, Juliana gives a nod to those by-gone, faded images and glamour in her patterns. Her background in fine art had been deepened by her experimentation with applied art, sewing, crocheting and knitting.

Watch this video to discover her inspiration for her most recent collection .

Mod Box in store now.

Introducing: Belle & Boo

Think of this post as similar to the final scenes of "The Breakfast Club" - Brian pumping his fist in the air to the strains of Simple Minds' "Don't You Forget About Me".

That's me, pumping my fist in the air, because we're back! It's been a long an unexpected hiatus but we're sincerely hoping that you didnt forget about me (us)!

Okat that was messy but I can't get the song out of my head.


 We're very excited to be welcoming British lifestyle brand Belle & Boo to our shores! Belle & Boo was created by illustrator Mandy Sutcliffe and celebrates innocence, warmth and adventure through gorgeous, nostalgic storybook illustrations. Featuring Belle and her rabbit Boo, as well as a cast of their freinds, the brand has expanded to include clothing, books, homewares and stationary.

Cute kids aprons we made with some Belle & Boo fabric!

We've collaborated with the brand to develop some fabric ranges exclusively for us, as well as offering popular existing Belle & Boo fabric designs. Check out a preview of the range below:

Sooooo seriously cute. And it's in stores now!
