We are cover star's at SMH, Inc with our wreath making the Nov cover of CB2's latest Holiday themed catalog. We have featured some preliminary images already in previous drops and on the net, but this is it folks, The main catalog out for the season. This is where all our images styled for the season are featured.

Here you will see some new images that we shot in Chicago some months back with the wonderful Photographer, Jonny Valiant

All shot in-house at the Crate & Barrel studio, we get to work with an amazing team that pull out all the stops, All sets are designed and built on site, We spend a number of days designing the different sets for different spreads being conscious to mix up the look and feel of each set. this door on the cover was custom made and has a beautiful arch design which is very difficult to make. We hope you enjoy the remainder of the CB2 images SMH, Inc had the pleasure to work on.

SMH, Inc is happy to see some more holiday shots appearing online for CB2. We recently worked on the Holidays for CB2 in Chicago with the wonderful Photographer Jonny Valiant

These images appear largely in the new Gift Guide and online in banners on the site.

Holidays are always fun at CB2 with a new range of product available each year. My favorite thing is to see what nutcracker we will be featuring as the theme swaps out from year to year, This year he was a superhero so we got to come up with the concept of a superhero in his own custom mini metropolis. 

Pineapple motifs make a big splash this year and we had fun with pineapple print and planters.

With only 2 months left till Christmas day, It's time to start thinking about the season, Look for more images soon for CB2 from SMH, Inc in coming posts

For Fall this year, SMH, Inc travelled to New Hampshire to work on the latest catalog for The Garnet Hill Fall Catalog. It's always a pleasure to head north to work on these projects. This time we got to work with the very talented Photographer for the first time, Ryan Liebe which was a pleasure.

We have had a long history with the company and are very familiar with the product and customer. With a very edited approach and with the country of Italy as inspiration, we worked with beautiful stucco inspired sets and created warm and moody environments that co existed with the fashion element of the catalog that was actually shot in Italy (lucky them! ; )

We have since ventured up again where SMH, Inc actually art directed the next catalog due out next year for Spring, look out for that one soon!
