Anthropologie Flagship Store - 2015 Holiday Displays and Windows

I've posted several times in the past about Anthropologie's hand crafted decor that varies from store to store - it never disappoints. The metallic trend was definitely taken into consideration when planning 2015's holiday display at the Philadephia flagship location. I visited the weekend after Christmas and delighted in seeing the dramatic arrangement of shining folded stars and snowflakes suspended in the circular stairwell.

The store, just off Rittenhouse Square in center city, is located in a beautiful old mansion with four floors of merchandise.

They don't build 'em like this anymore holds true at this location!

From ornate stonework outside to an amazing ceiling and wide crown molding inside, it's a feast for the eyes. There were pretty things to see in every direction... leafy shapes cut from lightweight metallic paper festooned large hanging structures.

My favorite display was this one... embroidery hoops filled with all sorts of gold and white decorative papers and perhaps some fabric too.

As we were leaving, I caught a glimpse of the windows from outside. The deep sills were snowy landing pads for festive carousel animals.
 Anthropologie Holiday Window Polar Bear

A polar bear and reindeer were displayed against cut paper backgrounds. Their bodies appeared to be made of paper maché.
