Store Design Love

I was recently told by a friend that I had to check out the new Hobo flagship store in Annapolis.  So, on my next visit to downtown I made a point to stop in.  Well, let me just say....the store is super cool!  Next time you're in Annapolis, I highly recommend you stop by, not only to see the gorgeous purses but to see the store's design.

"Cool is when vintage meets modern" is Hobo's motto.  The motto is perfectly translated to their store design.

Outside it looks like many of the stores in downtown.  I'm guessing they were limited to the changes they could make to the exterior but the bold contrast of the red and white paint give a hint to what you will find inside.



You are met by an eclectic combination of beautifully crafted purses, polished concrete floors, back painted glass walls, exotic Matumi live-edge wood shelves, large black pendant lights,  and custom sculpted metal wall fixtures.

 

The center displays include their wallets and clutches.


Here's a closer look at live-edge wood shelves and sculpted wall fixtures.




Next you head up the stairs with great words to live by!


On the second floor there is a mix of sisal carpet, funky wallpaper and a real tree painted red.


The little red bird was painted by hand after the wallpaper was installed.


I love seeing a great example of translating a company's brand to their store design and giving a their customers a hip and fun place to shop!


The next set of steps tells the story of the company.  


An office on the top floor has a work table and inspiration boards.


Great girls night out alert!!!  Next Thursday, March 7th, you can sip some bubbly while you shop Hobo's new spring line.  Plus all profits on their new spring merchandise will be donated to a good cause...Foodlink!  Who's in?!?



Have a great week!

The display is so much more interesting than the usual store shelving, and makes you think about how you could display items in your own home in a fresh way. I love the planters and American flag out front!
