Details of Anthropologie

The thing that impresses me the most with Anthropologie is the level of creativity and detail that goes into their merchandising and displays, including their use of found items as fixtures. I have had the special opportunity to help set up the new Ottawa store, and snapped some photos within to highlight the thoughtfulness that went into every last stitch and nail. Their merchandising complements their delightfully detailed products.
The glowing name and curious quilt draw the viewer in.
Stenciling on the exterior
The vintage door at the front is mounted on a barn door track.
One of the found pieces is this huge light green chest--lovely colour and distressed surface.
Ladder shelves
Guardian beaver
Can you guess what this gigantic quilt is made of?
Leather? Denim?
The bright Pantry section with rough mustard walls
A mural made of chicken wire, string, and muslin
These plates
These knobs
These flowers made of twist ties, coffee filters, and paper tags.
Velvet kimono
Vintage printing screens used for display
A chandelier made of rubber bands
This necklace
Found cabinet and clock
This end table
This winding display of colour changing leaves is made of cut, scored, and dyed manilla tags.
This sign is edged with sharpened pencils.
Stunning necklace and kimono
The moody blue wall makes these glamourous vases stand out.
These jeans
The wall behind the cash
Luxurious and cheery textiles
Every last cactus flower and prickle is in its place!


  1. No way! Always wanted to get more interesting stores to Ottawa and now that I moved away from there, they come. Sigh
    Fantastic displays and I love your photos,

    1. Yes Mari, it's real and wonderful! Come for a visit! Thank you, I'm happy you liked the post.
