Luna*Zorro is officially one year old. It’s been an incredibly cool year that has totally exceeded my expectations of a first year in business. I’ve grown and learned so much and with every passing day I’m left feeling more encouraged and ambitious about where Luna*Zorro is headed. I’ve always been a creative person who’s worked for myself in one way or another, but what’s occurred for me as Founder and Creative Director of Luna*Zorro is pretty bonkers. My business is growing so organically and at such a speed that I feel equally amazed, overwhelmed, and inspired.
One of the biggest things to have happened for us (myself and all of the weavers I employ) is a recent order from Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors. Honestly, if you’d asked me a few months ago who some of my target clients were, Amber Lewis would have been in my Top 5. In fact, if I’m totally honest, I remember looking at one of her Instagram shots sometime over the summer and thinking to myself “I will find a way to work with this person.” Not only do I love her style and adore literally every interior project I’ve seen of hers, but I have a deep appreciation for the go-getter that she is. It’s clear in the way she’s built her business, that she’s got vision, passion, and serious work ethic…not to mention she is a family person. As a mama of two tiny people, I can attest to the fact that it ain’t easy to have so many plates spinning. But man, Amber is doing something right, and I’m SO EXCITED to be involved in her creative process. I’d describe her work as a clean, modern palette with bold, warm, unique hardware + accessories – in particular her choice and use of textiles (new and vintage), wallpaper, and tiles (three of my favorite things). Check out the photos below, borrowed from her portfolio, to get an idea of what I’m talking about. She also has a clever way of naming each home she does based on the client – Client Freakin Fabulous or Client Cool As A Cucumber – for example. Well, let me tell you, she’s my very own Client Let’s Get This Party Started.
Currently, Luna*Zorro weavers are in full swing, weaving like the wind to complete the really big “Amber order” (our biggest to date) within the next 6 weeks. A huge variety of our pieces (mostly bedspreads) will be available for purchase from Amber’s online shoppe and also at her brick-and-mortar store. And while there’s definitely no guarantee, I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that in only a matter of a few months, I’ll also have the joy of seeing some of those Luna*Zorro pieces gracing the interiors of the client homes she reinvents with her magical touch.
So keep your eyes out for Luna*Zorro coming soon to an Amber Shoppe near you, and when you do, tell her Molly sent you.
