terrain...amazing! {part 1}


Marissa and I took a trip over to Terrain at Styer's today (the 4th brand from Urban Outfitters previewed last week here)...and wow...all I can say is we were totally blown away. The fact that we spent almost four hours there says it alone. The new home & garden lifestyle concept turned out to be even more amazing than we could have imagined. The setting is airy, lush, and peaceful with a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces.


The greenery, retail space, and selection of products are incredibly well done. A mix of modern, handmade, organic, sustainable, imported, and simply beautiful items fill the indoor and outdoor spaces. Integrated into displays are pieces from Thailand, India, and Africa as well as locally found objects. The details are impeccable as is the merging of plants into the lifestyle space. The space was a true reflection of the amazing mix of talents that developed the concept and created this space.


A favorite of mine...beautiful packaging with photographic florals on kraft bags and faux bois gift boxes.


We also had a chance to have lunch in the café which happened to open today. Fresh, local food inspired by the current seasons were served in an airy and bright greenhouse style space.


Terrain does have plans to expand to other locations across the country...but for the time being, those of you outside Pennsylvania may just have to schedule a little weekend trip over to the Philadelphia area. You could seriously spend a whole day here alone. Although I took a TON of photos...Terrain at Styer's is even better in person. These are a few overview shots of the 11 acre retail space...stay tuned for {Part Two} tomorrow with more details and photos from this amazing new retail space.
