When you look at a Knack furniture piece, it’s important to look closely. Take a step back, take in the whole piece. Take a step in, take in the sweet details. Great care is taken in our design process to enhance the beauty of the furniture’s form and to tell a complete story, from top to bottom. Hardware, color, finish, drawers, fabric – there’s beauty in every inch.
We are all about some pretty patterned paper here at Knack, and no one does it better than Spoonflower.
Spoonflower offers custom fabric, wallpaper, and gift wrap. There are thousands of designs to choose from on the site (including more patterns from the designers of our favorites above), and you can even upload your own patterns.
We recently tried Spoonflower’s newest product – peel and stick wallpaper. The rolls can be customized to whatever size you desire, and hanging the paper couldn’t be simpler. Not to mention the lush, woven quality of the paper – it looks and feels beautiful.
The possibilities are endless with Spoonflower at your fingertips. Check ‘em out!
What a week it has been, and it all started off with our final styled photo shoot on Monday!
Monday’s shoot was seamless, a quintessential representation of the creative partnership of these five women.
The locations, for example, have ranged from right here on Knack home turf, to our own homes, to the homes of generous folks around town. On Monday, we shot first at a charming and idyllic farmhouse – complete with chickens, turkeys, pigs, and bunnies – and were able to bring Audra’s (the homeowner) winning style into our shots. We then moved on to Jessica’s home, and ended the day at sunset right outside of our very own studio, next to the train tracks and old brick buildings.
This constant change of scenery is emblematic of the lithe nature of this team, and the ease and enthusiasm with which they have taken each turn and interaction during this knack book 2 process. We have learned, together, to take a vision and carry through to fruition, and that sometimes plans change and you just roll with the punches to the collective beat of the drum.
It’s hard to believe that this creative partnership has come to and end (for now).
#knackbook2 will be here before we know it. The only thing left to do is celebrate, and wait.
As you undoubtedly know by now if you’re a regular reader, our book two deadline is fast approaching, and so our photo shoots as a team are coming to an end. This seems like a perfect time to let you peek into a day at a styled shoot.
Mondays on set are always whirlwind of heavy-lifting, arranging, re-arranging, errands, photo-taking, heavy-lifting again, collaboration, and laughter. By 10:30 am, everyone has gathered and gotten down to business carefully unloading furniture pieces and props at the shoot location. From there, the styling team gets to work putting each set-up together, checking angles, getting Barb’s final approval, and moving on to the next set-up. Paige is always close behind with her camera and her professional eye, getting the shots we need to make book two great.
Wash, rinse, repeat until it’s done (which can range anywhere from 3 to 5:30 pm!)
These photos were taken behind the scenes at our most recent shoot, at the homes of Jennifer Bedenbaugh and Joseph Bradley. We can’t wait ’til we can show you guys the finished product!
We’ve been heralding fall around here for the past couple of weeks – stringing gilded leaves in our windows, sipping Pumpkin Spice Lattes, picking apples, the whole gamut. This past Tuesday, Fall answered. Cooler winds are blowing through Greenville, bringing that unmistakeable urge to be with folks you love, to share a meal, to gather.
In honor of autumn’s arrival, we’ve corralled some of our fall favorites from around the shop.
