Anthropologie Windows Feature Quilling and Paper Flowers - Spring 2017

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
So what if we're in the midst of a windy snow day here in Delaware? I'm thinking spring thoughts, thanks to quilled flower displays that are already blooming in Anthropologie store windows.

This beauty was shot by Aspen Vo, a display coordinator at the Carmel-By-The-Sea location, and shows an impressive combination of rolled tight coils, fringed flowers, and linear quilling that resembles quilled teardrops as leaves. Aspen told me her window elements are composed of chipboard, and she used wire and floral tape to install the individual pieces onto a base structure made from a bent electrical conduit pipe. Such creativity!

I follow Helen Hiebert on Instagram and a photo she posted of the Palo Alto window is what launched my internet journey to find other Anthropologie quilling examples around the country. Store artists are given a common theme each season and go from there. As evidenced by these pics, none are exactly the same and all are remarkable.

Those of us who are familiar with traditional quilled shapes will recognize quite a few. I'm impressed - the designers clearly did their homework. Just look past the glass reflections to enjoy the details.

To be perfectly honest, I can't say with conviction that all of the quilling was done with paper. After all, roofing strips have been used in the past, but no matter, it's fantastic to see the precise attention that has been paid to quilling techniques.

Have a look at the Instagram #anthrowindows tag where more photos are popping up daily, as well as Anthropologie Facebook photo albums to see many more examples of current windows and decor from past seasons.

And needless to say, get thee to the closest store this weekend to see its particular quilling style in person - that's what I plan to do! If you find some beauties, I'd love it if you would link to them in the comments or send them to me to post.
