International Women's Day
Celebrating Women Worldwide
Women around the world are celebrated on March 8, 2017, during International Woman’s Day, and at GEARYS, we couldn’t think of a better way to support women worldwide. International Woman’s Day is about supporting social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world and GEARYS is honored to have more than a few beautiful products from female designers around the globe.
Created in the early 1900’s, it is a celebration that has been going on for over a century. The world has shifted significantly in the past century when it comes to women’s rights, careers and views, which makes this day even more special.
Each year the event has focused on a particular theme, a message to promote the world. This year’s theme is #BeBoldForChange. Whether you start a new business venture, are entering into a new stage of your life, or just want to make a change in your home, GEARYS supports you in all your #BeBoldForChange activities. Make 2017 your year and make your voice heard in whatever you do.
One of the best parts of our company is the ability to carry beautifully made products from some of the most prolific designers—and of course, there are many inspiring women amongst them. From Marie Daage to Zaha Hadid, our designers have done so much more than simply make beautiful works of art—though that would still be enough to celebrate them.
Marie Daage, a world-renowned French designer, has set the world on fire with her beautifully intricate and inspiring hand-painted porcelain dinnerware. It’s about more than simply designing fabulous pieces; it’s about setting a wonderfully unique dinner table as well. With works in the VIP Chanel Rooms in Paris and Hong Kong to the Marlon Brando Hotel and even a Scottish Castle, and winning the Legion d’Honneur in 2012, she is certainly a woman to celebrate. GEARYS is honored to carry two of her stunning, embolden collections, Horizon and Panache. The subtle colors of the horizon are an elegant backdrop for any meal. In beautiful pastels that represent the four elements, one can create a setting suited for their personal favorites. Where Horizon is a more delicate and understated feel, Panache provides a bold pop of design. This collection plays with brush strokes, creating a vivid circle extending outward from the center of each piece. Both the deep black and golden tone design sparkle against the iridescent base color.
Zaha Hadid is known worldwide for her brilliant architectural designs. Hadid is a wonderful display of the great works of women with her numerous achievement awards, including being the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004. Not to mention in 2012 she was famously made a Dame by Elizabeth II for her services, and in 2015 she earned another first for women architects, the Royal Gold Medal Award. It seemed only natural to take her skill with structure and create delightful designs to grace homes across the world. Teaming up with Lalique, she has created elegant pieces, such as The Manifesto Vase, which are sure to inspire great things.
An exploration of still movement through stunning transparencies and mysterious depths are embodied within the instantly iconic Manifesto and Visio vases. Paradoxically beautiful, the vases’ gentle curves evoke the limitless fluidity of running water and sweeping currents of air, rendered immobile in a sleek hourglass of LALIQUE crystal. The result is nothing short of art.
