Everyday Designer Kitchenware Window Display

 photo LASS2016SEPJJ_zpslyr18u6p.jpg
Complementing the Save the Bee display through the use of green and purple, this window story features kitchenware that is sleek and modern in design, including products from Joseph Joseph and Global Knives. Previously sourced prop garlic and artichokes add texture and context.

A new product - Joseph Joseph Barwise bottle opener - is supported by others from the same brand.

The beer chilling sticks had previously not been strong sellers, but once placed with a beer bottle prop in the window, sold out.

Fun, Modern and Feminine Kitchenware Display

 photo LASS2016AUGGiftsELECTRIC_zps522vtknv.jpg
A softly playful, modern, feminine colour palette of lolly pink, turquoise and crisp white - held in harmony with a purple background - highlights products of a similar taste. This display was installed at the same time as the Fathers' Day window, and thus balances that masculinity through being the opposite.

The Angry Mama and Cool Mama have both proven a hit, appealing to those who would also enjoy the Nessie utensils and tea infuser.

Fathers' Day Kitchenware Window Display

Imperial purple is not a conventional colour for Fathers' Day but it does bring out the warm natural tones of the featured products and adds a touch of luxury to the shinier ones.

'... a lovely bunch of coconuts...' Hand assembled coconut props were created especially for this display. They helped the client completely sell out of coconut yoghurt kits. This had not happened when the product was in the window previously, unpropped.

When displaying fun products like these, it pays to have quirky details to make them extra memorable.

The client has consistently sold through each shipment of this wine glass marker. Customers regularly ask about it because they saw it in the window - and not always when the shop was open.

Soft Sell - Gentle tones and warmth - Kitchenware Window Display

 photo LASS2016MAYRGmugs_zpsnkbrtieb.jpg
Featuring Hug Me mugs by Robert Gordon Pottery, bambooware, woodware, Plastic Free July drinking options by KeepCup and Oasis, and all white electrical products.

The colour scheme of predominantly natural tones and textures, accented with pastels and crisp, contrasting white makes a hero of the Robert Gordon Hug Me mug product and packaging (unglossed, unbleached board with pink, grey, black and mint graphics). Plain brown paper backdrops tie in with this as well as relate to the adjoining window displays. The client had difficulty keeping up with demand, with once abundant window mugs/sets selling out, and substitution required several times.
