Founder Jenny Davids, a native of North Carolina, was raised in a tradition of true southern hospitality and says “Nothing defined that experience more than our family gathering around the table to share a simple meal. We call it gracious living.”
I very much agree with her when she added that “It’s all about making the people you welcome into your home feel comfortable and cared for. (This includes the people that live in that home with you!) It’s that intangible that makes you want to linger at the dinner table or pull up a chair and visit. It’s about hospitality without feeling stuffy or too proper. It’s knowing that this time right now is special.”
The Hen House team of incredible women includes “in-the-Hen House” designer and creative director Katherine Poole (who also happens to be her college roommate and dear friend), her neighbor Lee (and inspired photographer), her intrepid office crew, as well her “supportive, creative, opinionated mothers, girlfriends, sisters, muses and stalwart friends that have graciously tested new product, modeled, opened their homes for photoshoots, found the perfect shade of red, carpooled my children and on occasion fed my husband“.
The 2013 Holiday Collection included the following design highlights:
Chevron Holiday: A familiar pattern that feels at once nostalgic and modern, the Chevron print gets a joyful update with shades of red and green. The fresh zigzag wakes up your home in the form of Chevron Holiday Placemats and Dinner Napkins that instantly transform a dinner into a merry party. Mix the prints with solid reds and greens or pair them with contrasting, subtler prints.
Ornamental Scarlet: Decorations aren’t just for evergreens—inspired by vintage glass Christmas ornaments, Ornamental Scarlet features a modern interpretation of retro ornament shapes, festively hanging and twinkling and spreading holiday cheer. The simple yet colorful print accents the table beautifully.
Garden Gate Ochre: A classic pattern looks ultra-lux in a dark gold Ochre, and adds warmth to any table. You get dressed for special occasions, and so should your table. The Garden Gate Ochre Table Runner sets the mood for a holiday dinner that brings everyone at the table together, and pairs sumptuously with red or green—just add soft candlelight.
Linked Up Scarlet: A simple pattern in a holiday-ready red grounds your décor and adds holiday spirit effortlessly. The Linked Up Scarlet Tablecloth is the perfect backdrop to contrast any holiday pattern from the Chevron Holiday to the Garden Gate Ochre for a Pinterest-worthy table setting.
