So I was asked to submit some designs for JoJo but she and Etsy did provide a starting point. Both for the collection and for the lantern in particular. Once I saw the lantern ispo document I could understand why I was approached.... I'm pretty sure the mid-century modern lantern clinched it. II was also pretty excite because I felt my product held its own against West Elm, Serena and Lily, Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn and this pretty much confirmed it. I was also pretty tickled to see the Orla Keilly lantern there as well..... my floral lantern gives a nod to Ms. Keilly for sure.
There is still more with respect to the mood board of the collection but I'll get to that later. What I really wanted to ensure was that the design should look as great whether the lantern was lit or not.... so that it was a statement piece throughout the day as well. The design I came up with does just that due to the shadowing of the detail. Here's a close-up of the detail on the lantern.
More on the mood later.
