You know how sometimes you discover something that is so awesome, you want to share it with the world, but you also selfishly want to keep it all to yourself? Well, after great internal struggle, I’ve decided to put my selfishness aside and introduce you to one of my absolute favorite local brands: Eric & Christopher.
The truth is, you’ve probably already heard of Eric & Christopher. Recently highlighted on philly.com, finalists in Martha Stewart’s American Made contest, and available in stores nationwide (including a trio of custom designs available exclusively at NYC’s Plaza Hotel), Eric & Christopher is making a huge impression in the world of home decor – right from Perkasie, PA! Specializing in screen-printed pillows, tote bags, and stretched-canvas prints featuring animal-themed designs based on their own stunning photography and illustrations, Eric & Christopher is truly a one-of-a-kind brand.
In 2011, award-winning artist Eric Fausnacht met another award-winning artist (who also happens to be my cousin), Christopher Kline. After teaming up for a collaborative art show, Eric and Christopher realized the power in their partnership and Eric & Christopher, LLC was born. Today, Eric & Christopher’s gorgeous products are available in more than 800 stores across the country, and lucky for you, about twenty of them are right here in Pennsylvania!
Whether you’re in the market for a flying pig pillow, a lobster tote or a stretched canvas printed with the wisest sheep you’ve ever seen, Eric & Christopher is guaranteed to have something that suits your fancy. Check them out online and follow them on Facebook for updates on upcoming appearances and pillow signings.
And in the continued spirit of sharing this wonderful brand with the world, we’ve teamed up with Eric & Christopher to offer you an extra special summer giveaway! Enter below for your chance to win a gorgeous lobster tote.
Emily’s Tip: Eric & Christopher also makes amaaaaaaaaaaaazing Christmas and seasonal items around the holidays. Check Facebook for updates!
Emily’s 2nd Tip: My birthday is in early October, but I will happily accept Eric & Christopher gifts year-round. I’m partial to the flying pig, the llama and the goat. My husband hasn’t picked up on my not-so-subtle hints over the last three years, so I’m relying on you, dear friends.
