I Met My CRUSH !

What a week I'm having! First I posted about my new crush that I have on SEMIKOLON earlier this week, but since I did not have my camera with me, had to rely upon lack-luster pictures I found on the web. Well.... while attending Atlanta's Gift Market this week {you will definitely see a later post about this humongous show} you can imagine my surprise when I found SEMIKOLON actually has a permanent showroom, here in Atlanta! There I was perusing the showrooms and the bright hues of SEMIKOLON was calling me, like a moth to the light:)


The showroom is merchandised exactly the way Sam Flax has their new SEMILOLON department set up and it is STUNNING!!! The people were very nice as I started snapping pictures like a mad crazy paparazzi person. I met Richard Waters, the Coordinator for Sales and Merchandising for US and Canada, the man who helped Sam Flax get their department up and running. He said the US just got SEMIKOLON in January, but the company has been around for approx 25 years. They are owned by Pierre Belvedere, which as many already know, is also a premium line of journals, and paper goods.

The products are of German design and there really is no website where you can simply go and actually purchase SEMIKOLON products, at least right now - but he did say if anyone wanted to know where they could buy these little luxuries close to where they live, feel free to send him an email - richardwaters@sympatico.ca

If you love lively color and pattern the way I do, you will love SEMIKOLON - and NO I do not work for them in any way, shape or form. Just have a huge crush:)
