10 years


10 years, dieci, a decade.  You all know the tag line, in 2005 I packed up everything I owned, including little Ciccia Maria (who is now 11 1/2 I might add), and set out for the adventure of a lifetime, I moved to Italy.  Wow…what an adventure it has been to say the least in my little house on the hill.  I have lived life in a new language, culture, landscape, time zone…the list goes on and on.

Apparently the symbol of the tenth anniversary is tin or aluminum and I have to say that the pliability of both is the perfect metaphor for not only my life here in Italy, but my Laura Fair designs as well.  As with all things in life, we must be flexible, able to bend without being broken.  Anyone who knows me will say that one of my favorite words is compromise…isn’t that just a synonym of pliability?

This year is not just the anniversary of my move, but also of Laura Fair.  What would be the perfect way to celebrate 10 years of business designing and licensing?  How about we are now at Target.com.  Yes, you heard me, Target my friends!  What an absolutely excellent way to savor the anniversary and all the hard work up until now.  They will be carrying 4 different Laura Fair Pillow Collections from Rizzy Home. 




Be sure to visit www.target.com and search for “laura fair” to check out the pillows and let me know what you think!

With 10 in mind, I am currently working on a look back over the last decade of life and business and will be updating here more often with my thoughts.  Stay tuned...Ciao!

Gennaio 2015

As tradition here in Italy, most homes have a nativity scene and ours is no exception.  We have been patiently waiting for the arrival of the Magi on the 6th.  Then again, silently not wanting their appearance as it signifies the holidays are officially over in Italy.  Well, the wise men traveled to adore Jesus and the holidays are done as of today.   
However, my tree is still standing...not ready to let that go!

Gennaio January, the month of beginnings and resolutions and debuts and promises.  Every year for me, January has meant a trip to the United States...most importantly to the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market at Americasmart.  For the first time in 15 years (gasp), I will not be scaling the escalators or walking the floors between 4 massive buildings.  Instead, I will be quietly working away here in Tuscany in the studio.  Now, this does not mean that Laura Fair product will not be represented throughout the market...don't get me wrong!  

Golden Rabbit is showing my Laura Fair Chirps and our continuously popular Damask patterns in Red, Blue, and Green.

Rizzy Home continues to showcase my Laura Fair indoor pillow collections with almost 40 designs in which to choose, NEW rugs, and my quilt and bedding collections.  (More on these designs to come...we have some BIG news to deliver in the next couple of weeks!)

And last but certainly not least, Evergreen Garden is featuring both the Spiral Bouquet Garden Collection and the best selling Woodcut Collection in their showroom.

If you happen to be visiting the market, please stop by and see these wonderful showrooms.  If you do, be sure to find me on Facebook and let me know your thoughts as well.
Buon Anno...Happy New Year...and Happy Gennaio!

Chickies-Baby Chirp

This weekend we will be sipping some bubbly and celebrating the launch of my new Laura Fair Baby Chirp Collection for Golden Rabbit enamelware in Atlanta at Americasmart.  If you are there...come and join us on Saturday, July 12th from 4-6 pm in Building 2 #835A.  We all know some little ones who rule the roost and these were made with lots of love just for them.

I am the King around here for our boys

and I am the Queen around here for our girls.


 The best part...they even come in a cute box set complete with a plate, bowl with lid, and these tiny mugs.  How perfect is that?
