In mid October we packed up our Coral & Tusk goods and headed to Houston for our trunk show at Kuhl-Linscomb! Our first store visit and trunk show of the season coincided with Kuhl-Lincomb’s annual Holiday Shopping Card Event, where participating businesses donate a percentage of sales to the American Cancer Society. We felt so lucky to be included in the Holiday Card festivities, as one of many trunk shows and events taking place for the ten day fundraiser. We had a blast connecting with customers and fellow designers!


Kuhl Linscomb Coral & Tusk

Kuhl-Linscomb’s sprawling campus is comprised of five buildings filled to the brim with furniture, antiques, bedding, table linens, apothecary, jewelry, baby, kitchen, garden and so much more! It’s impossible to see everything but was such a treat to try! We set up shop in the Main Building, displaying the entire C&T home line, including our brand new Framed Artwork!

Here at Coral & Tusk, we are proud to have our products stocked in independently owned shops both near and far. Visiting our stockists in person and meeting our customers is always an exciting experience! The partnerships we’ve created with our wholesalers are unique and we are very lucky to have the opportunity to work with some of the most beautiful and truly inspiring stores. We are thrilled to share our store visits with you on our blog this holiday season!

Last week we joined k colette at their 5th annual Harvest Gathering, where we displayed our entire home collection for a trunk show! We’ve worked with k colette for nearly 3 years now, but this was our first visit to their beautiful Portland, Maine store.

With beautiful shorelines and idyllic small towns, plus a bustling food and creative scene, Maine has become an increasingly popular destination for travel. We jumped at the chance to explore Portland while we were in town for our trunk show last week at k colette, and then took an extra day to visit Southern Maine.

Read all about k colette and our trunk show HERE.

First, we spent a couple of days in Portland, seeing and eating as much as we could, then we traveled along the coast to visit a few of our stores and their surrounding areas.

We absolutely love to entertain here at Coral & Tusk and from throwing studio shindigs to large dinner parties, we wanted to share our our favorite ways to celebrate with friends and family. For our fall festivities, setting a beautiful table helps to create an inviting space for good conversation and delicious food.

Feathers Table Runner

Choosing the menu and the atmosphere of the party is a perfect place to start because it makes the larger decisions for how to set your table fall into place. For any table setting, we like to first spread out the table runner or table cloth and keep layering until it feels good! Begin with your linens, then decide your dinnerware setting layout depending on what you’re serving. If you’re sharing appetizers and drinks, keep it simple and buffet style with dessert plates, vintage cheese knives, serving spoons and cocktail napkins.
