Local Favorite Juliska at the New York Gift Show

Located not far from me in Connecticut, Juliska is a local design favorite. Their store in Stamford is a constant source of style inspiration. Beautifully merchandised, it always features tempting treats as well as creative entertaining ideas.

In addition, they occasionally sponsor interesting events, and I recently attended a flower arranging class led by talented Design Manager Christine Keane, below right, instructing me on how to get my arrangement to even remotely resemble her beautiful example. You can read more about the evening at fellow attendee Ridgely Brode’s blog here.

Having spent the weekend walking the New York Gift Show, I made a point of visiting Juliska’s spacious booth in the Javitz center. Not surprisingly, it was an outpost of artfully displayed table top delight. Christine created all of the gorgeous arrangements and I noted a perfect example of what we learned in class in this lovely new Ines vase. Note how she wrapped the leaves.

Besides merely perusing merchandise, there are many entertaining and styling tips to be gleaned from visiting the gift show!

Their popular Country Estate collection is being offered in a seasonal ruby hue for the holidays as well as with a red Winter Frolic candle, both made irresistible with the enchanting packaging.

Even man’s best friend was well represented at the booth!

As we saw at the Las Vegas World Market, neutrals are continuing in a luxe way for fall. See how the rich combination of leather, woven paisley and fur combine for a sumptuous winter scene.

Their handsome pewter stoneware is perfectly suited to this extravagant yet understated tablescape.

If you are in the area, I recommend a visit to their chic retail outpost, equipped with a charming cafe, a short distance from the Antique and Artisan Center.  Otherwise, their website is a wonderful resource. Stay tuned for many more updates from the New York Gift Show!!

  1. Sooooo pretty! I love Juliska! I’m chuckling at the dog bowls, though. Coco Zeller would like the world to know that she’s been eating out of Juliska for years. A regular ramekin makes a perfect bowl for a Maltese! ;-)

  2. Have always loved Juliska. So easy to layer their beautiful pieces!
    Happy Tuesday, Stacey.

    Honestly…you’re giving my heart a “work out!” These arrangements are just….fabulous. And…here I thought I’d “go easy” on holiday decorating this year…not happening. franki

    p.s. More, please.

  4. I love seeing all the new things from Juliska. The dog bowls will be on my Christmas list and I have to say that I agree with you – normally I don’t go for holiday themed plates, but these are really beautiful. Especially with the plaid and red accents. Thanks for the shout out to RidgelysRadar.com
    I cant wait to see more.

    Stacey,
    What a gorgeous display Juliska created! I’m so happy that you were able to attend the flower arranging class…can’t believe I missed it by one day b/c I was on my way to Texas. It looks very well attended, so hopefully they’ll host another!!!
