Let’s Get to Know Easy, Tiger, Floor 9 and J.C. and Rollie!

OneCoast is honored to now be representing J.C. and Rollie, Floor 9, and Easy, Tiger, three strong lifestyle brands that represent a comprehensive home decor and gift portfolio for the independent specialty market. Together, the brands bring artisan quality, premium materials, and hand-crafted products that will provide independent retailers one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be found anywhere else. With key categories like home accessories, serving and entertaining, stationery, kitchen, holiday, pet and men’s, this family of brands is one stop shop for home and gift. Read on to learn more about these unique brands:

Q: Tell us a little about your company, how long in business, how you got started, etc.

A: We’re a family of brands, each with their own personality. Together, our branded collections encourage discovery by offering a great range of new-to-market products with unique finishes, forms — and an almost embarrassing attention to detail.

Of our three brands, Easy, Tiger started off about five years ago, selling fun, sarcastic greeting cards out of refurbished vintage vending machines. They have since expanded to offer a ton of fun gifts and home décor. Soon thereafter, our group of passionate designers and merchants dreamed up Floor 9, establishing an artisan brand for the specialty market. And finally, our newest addition is J.C. and Rollie, a heritage brand of quality décor and gift products for today’s lifestyle which is debuting in Atlanta.  We couldn’t be happier to have these three brands all coming together as we head into 2019.

 

Q: What are your product offerings?  What’s unique about your products vs. other manufacturers?

A: Our brands offer unique home décor and gift products ranging from home accessories, entertaining, and kitchen — to stationery, pet and men’s, However, each has a unique perspective that’s perfect for today’s market.

At Easy, Tiger, we take vintage design, add a modern twist, and shake with sarcasm. We firmly believe our homes, and the things we surround ourselves with, are expressions of who we are (witty, clever, and obviously not full of ourselves at all). We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we’re passionate about vintage design, top-shelf materials, and expert craftsmanship. Like, to the point of being annoying.

For Floor 9 team, we believe life should be slightly eclectic, unexpected, and always well-made. We’re a brand built on artisan intuition, bringing worldly design and unique finishes to timeless, current forms. Every creation feels free-spirited and visionary because it comes from the mind of a maker.

Finally, J.C. and Rollie is inspired by a time when work was a craft and every detail was purposeful. We make products that are authentic, casual, and at the same time, beyond the ordinary. Our collection of home décor and gifts are heritage-inspired, but re-imagined for today’s lifestyle. We believe every home should feel uniquely gracious, always inviting, and confidently designed.

But most important is what these brands create together. Every product we make is individually designed and never off-the-shelf, with unique artwork, editorial, and on-market trend. And because we’re one big family, buyers can meet all their needs on a single order, with a selection of brands as unique as their customers.

Q: Where do you get your inspirations and trend direction from for new products?

A: For us, trend is an immersive experience.  We travel all over the world to identify emerging trends and find the most unique materials, finishes and forms. In addition, we are constantly watching and engaging in the world – monitoring market trends, studying social and economic behaviors and more.  However, the real magic comes when our team of skilled designers and merchants takes all of these trend touchpoints and interpret them to make brand-right, on-trend products right for our consumers.

As for inspiration? It’s all of the above… but happy hours don’t hurt either.

 

Q: What do you love most about attending the markets?  

A: Definitely the best part about attending the markets is interacting with customers and our sales partners. There’s no better way to take the pulse of the market than to talk with owners, vendors, and sales associates. We like to be on the front lines, to see how retailers and consumers interact with our brands, and how our products impact their businesses and their lives.

 

Q: Why do customers love your products?

A: Our products are unique, never off-the-shelf, and made for today’s market. We offer thoughtfully designed, trend-right product with high-quality materials and finishes – all at accessible price points. We strive to create tailor-made products to fit her life and offer solutions she just can’t find anywhere else.

 

Q: What does the future hold for J.C. and Rollie, Floor 9, and Easy, Tiger?  Maybe a small sneak peek into future product expansions, ideas, etc.

A:  As we look into the future, we couldn’t be more excited to be partnering with OneCoast to expand the overall reach of our brands.  They are the perfect fit for linking our brands with the right customers. As for future product expansions, we are excited to debut our expanded holiday lines in March of 2018, as well as our new Q3/Q4 product introductions for summer shows. Be sure to check us out!

We love to Host It and Post It so we are sooo excited to announce the launch of our new “Happily Ever After” wedding and “Brunch ‘over’ boys” collections for Spring 2017.  Both offer a fresh take on stemware, dessert plates, and of course we didn’t forget those gifts with a hint of wit.  Be sure to check out our “So you don’t get cold feet” socks.”

 

Spring ’17 continues with the additions of our new print and color collections.   We are bringing more of the outside in with our “Think Pink Botanical” collection offering botanical printed dessert plates, trays, and unique pineapple home decor.

 

Blue please!  This trending color just simply makes us…happy.  That is why we launched a “Double Happiness” printed collection with blue as the leading color.  From trinket dishes, ginger gars, pillows, trays and more.  Every home will just be just…happier.
What would make any party more Pinterest perfect than the perfect home?  We agree, … nothing!  So with that we added and further expanded our Room Décor by adding lamps, pillows, bar carts, room décor objects, and wall artwork.

 

We are already counting down to Holiday 2017 with the expansion of clever holiday gifts, tabletop, tree trimming solutions, and more. Our “You make me blush” rose gold holiday story features a signature four foot rose gold nutcracker. He will make you say “Rose all Day” and is the perfect sidekick to our rose gold platters, coupe champagne glasses, ornaments and more.

 

Our “Trim a Tree” with evergreen story features an evergreen branch print that mixes seamlessly with our current plaid stories while adding a touch of newness. New additions in this collection include our new Santa and friend’s cookies trays, gold Mylar balloon style ornaments, dessert plates, platters, and much more.

 

Oh, and for those of you who loved our donut ornaments, our junk food cravings just got well..…bigger so we added a pizza by the slice ornament boxed set. Hey…WE’RE PIZZA PEOPLE.

 

It’s life at 8 Oak Lane and it’s still just the beginning….

This season Mad Style is all about “Curated Consumption”. Curated Consumption is the emerging trend behind magazines morphing into catalogs, it’s behind the new popularity of DJ’s, Restaurant Critics, Opinionated Bloggers and Influencers, Celebrities giving access to their music playlists, their homes, their favorite things and of course – their fashion.

 

Offering items in an array of seasonal colors is redundant when consumers only need one color – THE RIGHT ONE. This season, we find ourselves focused more on story-telling and discovery. Creating the right LOOKS for a new consumer that invests in things that speak to them emotionally. They value authenticity and self–expression. Fashion and Lifestyle – never sit still. These are indeed interesting times.

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!
