Mercantile Style: October at GVM!

It's Halloween at the Mercantile!

October is here, and we've been decorating for the holidays! Check out what our visual team has been doing with our new arrivals for some spook-tacular displays.

At our entrance, we’ve created a compelling dining room scene by pairing the ARHAUS 84” Nika Dining Table in Spalted Oak  with Set of 6 Distressed Black Frame and Cognac Leather Dining Chairs. Art with dark, moody palettes set off the artisan-applied resin within the light wood of the tabletop. 

A tablescape is created on white tool with tufts of “cobwebs” to bring a lightness to the scene. Anchored by a cast iron candelabra at the center, neutral and metallic accessories are clustered at the center for a dynamic composition of material, texture, and size. 

Storage pieces on either side of the table add some brightness, with ornate hardware to keep the gothic theme. A tray of glass decanters is a fun addition to any entertaining space! Funky white decor add consistency with your own personal flair. 

A black candelabra-style chandelier overhead, whimsically draped with cobwebs and decorated with bats, adds to the mysterious mood of this room.  

In one of our window displays, we took a more subtle approach. We created a dark focal point with the VANGUARD by MICHAEL WEISS Burroughs Dining Table surrounded by Set of 4 THAYER COGGIN Leather Dining Chairs. We put green bulbs in the two SLAMP Goccia Pendant Lights to complement our electric and eclectic uranium glass accessories. A matte and gloss black accent with an original oil on canvas painting by Eric McDonough adds to the dark palette of the space. 

In our other window, we’ve crafted an exhibition in maximalism with moody mystique. This Victorian Empire Style Velvet Sofa adds great allure, especially when surrounded by eclectic décor from around the globe. A room divider such as this one adds functional, versatile beauty.
