Home Accents Today spoke with Michigan-based retailer Leon & Lulu to get an update on the wall décor category.
Q. How important is wall décor to your product offering?
Designing spaces for our customers to enjoy is a key part of our business. This not only assists in selling furniture and décor but also gives guests new ideas for their own homes. We choose wall décor that sparks conversation amongst customers as well as between our customers and our designers. If we don’t love it, we don’t buy it. Our goal is to ensure that everyone who enters Leon & Lulu leaves with creative inspiration and a smile.
Q. Do you merchandise your wall art with other décor? And how so?
Wall art is incredibly personal and should be the center of a home’s design. Our talented designers begin every vignette by analyzing the art of choice and building the room concept around the piece. This process can involve one piece of large artwork as the star of the show or by complementing the piece with additional décor pleasing to the eye. Think of wall art as being the perfect shade of red lipstick to complement a fabulous outfit.
Q. What size, theme, price point seems to be doing well with consumers?
Our best-selling artwork tends to be larger pieces ranging from $300-$800 that easily fill wall space while adding interest. Diptychs continue to fly out of our store – the most popular being designs from our friends at Sugarboo & Co. and Spicher & Co.
