Taking stock today of the work we'll be bringing to @thetinygreenhouse Pop-Up Shop this Sunday @westelmgreensboro. We'll be there from 12-5 with a collection of some our favorite pieces, including 'A Downtown Affair'--our limited-edition print inspired by our love of Greensboro! #greensboro #popupshop #shopsmall #shoplocal #westelm

Plants with personality. #airplants

Loving the air plants we have in the shop.

Our final partner is @shelflifeart. Shelf Life features an array of offerings, from new and used art supplies, to custom framing and classes. The @uncg_iarc designers embraced this diversity with the concept of 'Color Outside The Lines' . Using materials sourced from the shop, the group created a series of threaded color gradients that weave through and extend beyond a picture frame centered in the window. Installation by Damon Shelton, Logan Pate, Madeline Greer and McKenzie Morrison. #iarc #uncg #greensboro #windowdisplay

Students assigned the window of Loco for Coco faced two big challenges: 1) the window is heavily tinted and 2) most traffic is drive-by, meaning they needed to make a bold statement that could be understood from a distance. Mission accomplished! The designers highlighted the boutique's gift boxes while providing a high contrast/ high impact display that draws attention to the storefront. The group used a combination of lamp shades, bouncy balls and wallpaper to create the truffles, wrappers and ribbon. Installation by Clifton Woods, Lizzy Arey, Marie Lemmond and Victoria Canady. #locoforcoco #greensboro #triadlocalfirst #chocolatestore #windowdisplay #uncg #iarc

It was important to the designers assigned @onlyjustbe that their window display reflect Just Be's commitment to supporting local artists. Through their creation of larger than life vegetables and an oversized watering can they were able to tell the story of how Just Be cultivates local art, providing a nurturing place for 'homegrown& #39; and 'hand-picked artists' to grow. Installation by Addie Welch, Ashley Eubanks, Bailey Chu and Marie White.

Please allow me a moment to gush. This spring I'm teaching a studio course @uncg_iarc centered around retail design. For their most recent project, students were paired with local small businesses to create window displays from unconventional materials with a budget of only $100. First up, @vintagetovogueboutique where the designers embraced the concept of metamorphosis, transforming the pages of an old gardening book into a beautiful cluster of butterflies. Installation by Andrew Poole, Edythe Eddinger, Erin Redden and Pamela Liles. #greensboro #uncg #iarc #triadlocalfirst #windowdisplay
