We first discovered Estelle Colored Glass this past spring and instantly fell in love with the exquisite pieces. While the products are magnificent, there is nothing more special than when a business is rooted in meaning that gives it heart and soul. Estelle Colored Glass is a Charleston-based business named after founder, Stephanie Summerson Hall’s grandmother, Estelle.
We previously partnered with Stephanie several months ago to create spring tablescapes and we were counting down until we could get the chance to collaborate again. We decided that a giveaway to kickoff summertime would be the perfect avenue to do so but amidst all of the uncertainty and now critical changes going on around us we decided that we had the opportunity to position so much more impact behind this giveaway. Simply put, we all could use a little bit of joy right now, but much more importantly, we must “keep our foot on the gas” when it comes to fighting for justice and equality. Given the platform both Estelle Colored Glass and Christian Ladd Interiors have, it would be irresponsible to be silent. Now more than ever we must use our platforms to voice our beliefs, specifically in advocating for inclusion. While we will remain a source for design and inspiration, going forward we will strive to also be a resource for causes for equality and overall meaningful content. And one way to deliver the promotion of awareness is by advocating for inclusivity in business. In our opinion, there is hardly anything more inspiring than a female run business, which is why we hope this giveaway will inspire others to support all businesses. Not only are Estelle Colored Glass and CLI female founded businesses but by two women both from different backgrounds, in different geographical locations fighting to bring awareness amongst all facets of life, including in business. Awareness is key.
With all of that being said, be sure to visit our Instagram account for more details and instructions on how to enter the giveaway. We are gifting one winner a set of 6 mint green stemless wine glasses and a Blue Les Touches Pillow. We will announce the winner on June 15th. Good luck!
