Fewer and better, useful and beautiful are the concepts behind the luxury loungewear offered by Nine56 Studio, which owner Meg Floersch founded in 2016. Now, she’s bringing those same ideas into homeware. The line launches today, November 16, with selected items sourced from Midwestern materials and makers. “Each piece was designed to pair with your holiday décor and bring warmth to your home all year round,” Floersch says.
The handwoven fabric for the throw pillow and table liner comes from a maker in Madison, Wisconsin, where Floersch is based. The wood used for a centerpiece that can hold candles, jars of flowers, holiday greenery, or other domestic items was salvaged from an old barn in the countryside. The beeswax candles were made by a retired local beekeeper. “Every piece in this collection has such a unique story,” she adds.
The intention behind the pieces, which are neutral in tone, is to provide customers with items that can be used throughout the year. “The idea is to layer them with specific holiday pieces and décor that bring warmth and festivity into the home without the extra clutter,” Floersch explains. “You can keep using the pillows, table liner, and other items throughout the year and pair them with seasonal things.”
Having been born and raised in the Midwest, “and having found an affinity for the rolling hills of Wisconsin since moving here with my husband,” she adds, “it’s important to me to showcase the depth and richness of the Midwest in the materials I use.”
