Studio M
At Studio M (formerly Magnet Works) we are dedicated to creating unique, artful products for the home and garden. Each season, we collaborate with talented artists to bring you and your customers the best designs in the industry. From mini garden items and garden flags to Art Poles and Art Pots, there is something new in every category for spring and summer 2016!

Kaleidoscope is an exciting new collection designed by artist Carol Roeda. The carefully crafted design of the line’s dimensional, kinetic sculptures allow each one to respond to subtle changes in the wind. Each sculpture is made of a heavy-gauge metal that won’t fade or rust. Kaleidoscope’s bright pops of color and hand-painted details will turn any outdoor space into an art gallery.

January marks the launch of two new garden collections for spring and summer! Each includes coordinating Art Poles, BreezeArt flags, Art Planters, MatMates, and more. Capistrano, designed by artist Jennifer Brinley, is full of her signature bold florals, brightly colored butterflies, and rich textures. Signs of Spring, by Susan Winget, is an artful blend of the newness of spring and the weathered, worn look of vintage elements.

The mini garden category has done nothing but grow over the past several seasons, and Studio M’s offering has expanded right along with it. We are thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new miniature gardening line, Merriment, designed by Mary Engelbreit. This adorable collection stars five fairies, each with their own unique interests, hopes, and dreams. Unlike traditional woodland or pixie fairies, Merriment’s fairies are relatable, contemporary characters that are full of personality. The line also features charming animals and accessories to create a mini garden that is full of fun! With bright colors and classic patterns, this is a collection you just won’t be able to get enough of.

Our wildly popular Gypsy Garden collection took the industry by storm when it debuted in spring 2013. This mini gardening line continues to grow each season and has more than tripled in size. There are many exciting new themes like county fair, lake, and gypsy/boho. New items include a dock, rowboat, Ferris wheel, and lots of new animals like ducks, goats, and sheep!

At markets in January, Studio M will release four new Custom Art Poles as an expansion to our popular Custom Address Poles. Now you can offer your customers something truly personal and special with this collection of special-ordered, custom-made poles. Designed by Stephanie Burgess, themes include family, marriage, patriotic, and more!

This season, we will debut 12 new Greek-themed Art Pots featuring the name, colors, and Greek letters of different sororities. With fashionable graphic prints and bright colors, these 6” pots are the perfect gift for Bid Day or for alumnae!

With exciting patterns and colors that will stay vibrant for years, Art Planters are the most unique and beautiful planters on the market. This season, we have more than doubled this collection, which now includes over 75 Art Planters designed by 14 artists. New for spring and summer, each planter set now has a coordinating MatMate for a truly remarkable front door greeting!

Pantone Colors of the Year 2016

Pantones of the Year

While we may be consumed with the holiday season at the moment, we took a bit of a break late last week when Pantone announced its color of the year. Every year Pantone sets the tone for color with this momentous announcement. Any and everyone in the industry takes a listen and spring collections get scrapped, edited, or lauded. This year the announcement came with a bit of a surprise. For the very first time Pantone announced joint colors of the year in Rose Quartz and Serenity. We were huge fans of these hues before the announcement hit, but now that it’s out we’re officially obsessed. They both translate perfectly through all seasons and will be big hits this spring.

Now that we’ve turned your attention to spring – hooray for warm weather! – let’s talk about the All For Color Resort 2016 line. First off it’s colorful. Bright cheery colors abound in an array of prints. Our Resort and Spring 2016 lines are suffused with Rose Quartz and Serenity and hints of our signature pops of color. What more is that it’s completely trend-right and is available in tons of styles and silhouettes. We’d like to say there’s something for everyone in this line especially if you’re a fan of the Pantone Color(s) of the Year.
