A visit to the Napa Home & Garden showroom at this market will reveal the company’s return to the garden where KC and Jerry Cunningham started their business.
The new Weathered Garden line features authentic finishes found in cement pots styled like baskets with metal handles.
Lightweight planters, a category in which Napa excels with design and selection, are spotted throughout the showroom as vessels of their high-quality faux florals. Glazelite is a new lightweight family of planters large in scale with the ceramic look. These planters are highly durable yet easy to work with and move, said company officials.
In a striking front display, Plumbury Hall is an eclectic, feminine collection with white glass, faux bois vases and gold accents that add luxury. Shown with faux peonies, the collection conveys a traditional look but the white finish gives it versatility for any setting.
Additions to the Barclay Butera line introduces tangerine orange as a rich contrast to Butera’s signature blue and white. New accents of silver, mirrored trays serve as bridge and reflector of the vibrant colors as this collaboration with Napa expands this season.
New in wall art, a top-selling category for the company, Napa has a new collaboration with local artist Whitney Wolf and expands offerings from Nancy B. Westfall (an artist from Atlanta, GA) with new hand-embellish prints that offer a unique texture and quality to the art.
A new influence at this winter show is Andrew Palm, Creative Director, who brings a pure and modern aesthetic that will be reflected in future introductions as Napa’s assortment incorporates the simplicity found in contemporary style.
A small yet impactful example of the new creative direction can be seen in the Somaloft area of the showroom, where Palm punches up the vignette with a strong solid yellow wall as a dramatic backdrop to an urban metro look of recycled metal scraps, industrial elements and muted tones.
Palm’s contribution has also been to pare down Napa’s holiday line to four distinct collections – Snow & Ice, Enchanted, Timberline Lodge and Merry & Bright — that offer “something for everyone,” according to Kerry Chope who handles Napa’s marketing and social media.
