Shrewsbury, NJ (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
On Friday May 9, 2014, Chelsea Gifts will welcome Michael Aram to their New Jersey store at 635 Broad Street within The Grove at Shrewsbury to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of his design studio. Buyers placing pre-orders or making in-store purchases of Michael Aram pieces can have gifts personally engraved by the designer.
It marks Mr. Aram's second in-store visit to Chelsea Gifts. "His previous visit in 2010 drew a large audience, and created a loyal fan base of Michael Aram products at the boutique," said Chelsea Gift's owner Edward Cain. "Customers will once again have the chance to schmooze with the man whom they have been fans of for years," says Cain. The upcoming event is scheduled for 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
Michael Aram has launched a Commemorative Anniversary Collection to mark the important milestone. The Commemorative Collection features some of the designer's most personal and iconic works in the past two and a half decades. It is comprised of functional pieces, and decorations stamped with Mr. Aram's unique touch and artistry. The stunning works include 'Water Hyacinth Candle holders', 'Snail Bowl', 'Neptune Bowl', 'Medusa Serving Set', 'Cat & Mouse Cheeseboard', 'Adam & Eve Ring Catch' and 'Forged Scissors'.
Select pieces from the 25th Anniversary collections will be available for purchase at Chelsea Gifts. Michael Aram will inscribe a message on gifts purchased. The event occurs two days before Mother’s Day, giving visitors an excellent opportunity to present a top-of-the-line, hand-crafted gift to a loved one, and have a special message inscribed by a celebrated designer in the metalware niche. Those who are unable to attend the event can place pre-orders, and Mr. Aram will still accept engraving requests. Customers who spend more than $200 in purchases will receive a complimentary Michael Aram gift. The event will also feature a raffle, and the lucky winner will receive a beautiful piece of Michael Aram’s work.
Chelsea Gifts' catalog of Michael Aram products includes a variety of functional, decorative, festive, ritual and dinnerware pieces. Each work is infused with symbolism and has a meaningful quality that places it in a class of its own. Mr. Aram emphasizes old traditional techniques of handcrafting to derive extraordinary results. His versatility and vision have spawned one-of-a-kind collections, which Chelsea Gifts is proud to represent and sell.
