As we were assembling our first collection, Cloud 9 to 5, I couldn’t help but think of flying. In particular, I kept thinking about the movie Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. DiCaprio’s character impersonates a Pan Am pilot for a good portion of the movie, while the detective (Tom Hanks) continually searches for him. At one point in the film, DiCaprio’s character walks right past detectives in an airport, camouflaged by a barrage of Pan Am flight attendants in a sea of blue and white uniforms.
The new commercials for Pan Am, the television show, have kept the brand (and the blue and white color scheme) on my mind. Don’t you think our chair would have looked great in Pan Am’s corporate offices? (P.S. We only have one chair left!)
It’s not just the color scheme that has me “in the clouds,” but now we have a new item that would be perfect on your next air travel adventure! A turquoise Samsonite suitcase! I’m really loving this find and I took great pride in reupholstering the interior. The fabric I chose adds an unexpected pop of geometric goodness. We’ll be posting it to our shop soon (along with the lamp and platter), so be sure to check back with us!
