I recently had the exciting opportunity to talk with Monya, the owner and creator of Plush Pumpkin. What an inspiring and super talented gal! She is based out of St. Paul, Minnesota and her company Plush Pumpkin was established in 2002. Her idea was to create gorgeous table designs and from this she has turned the concept of a simple pumpkin into a masterpiece.
I was first drawn to these amazing, plush, velvet pumpkins when I discovered them in my favorite season, Fall, at Roger’s Gardens in Newport Beach. Then I learned that Monya not only designs gorgeous velvet pumpkins yet she has added velvet acorns, mushrooms and hearts to her collection. She really won me over when I saw her stunning Metallic Linen and Italian Lambskin Collections. I cannot describe how much I love her work, each pumpkin is a work of art and they make me SO HAPPY…okay, so maybe I am obsessed!!
For those who read my blog, you are aware of the upcoming event “Chairs for Charity” supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities, Orange County. I do not want to give too much away about the chair I designed for this event but let’s just say Plush Pumpkin adds the perfect kiss to my overall design and concept. Monya, generously donated or should I say “gifted” us with some of her GORGEOUS metallic linen pumpkins that perfectly complement our Chairs for Charity chair design.
More photos to follow!
A big thank you, again, to Monya of Plush Pumpkin, we are so thankful for your generosity!
