Show "business"...

We are fresh off our tour through the New York Gift Show and have a few things to report. Among the many new launches of children's home decor collections (i.e. Jonathan Adler Junior & Oly), we left feeling warm & fuzzy over Working Class Studio. WCS is not specifically for kids but their creative home accessories radiate a playful, youthful vibe and are part of a "mentoring" business model that gives future design moguls their first shot. As a division of SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design), the studio is a product development venture that cultivates & promotes the work of it's students, alumni & faculty. Their Puffy Frames & graphic pillows are perfect for surrounding your kiddos while daydreaming about what they might become: an Artist or an Entrepreneur? ... perhaps both?!

Read up on Working Class Studio's original designs, and be sure and visit the wonderful town of Savannah if you ever get the chance (which was part of our inspiring road trip over the holidays). The area close to SCAD and it's namesake ShopSCAD has a creative energy that definitely feeds your spirit and when more than your spirit needs feeding head to the Gryphon Tea Room (housed in an ancient former pharmacy) and chat with your student waiter about off the beaten path shopping & sight-seeing.
