Pom Pom at Home has become an instant classic at Layla Grayce with its lovely linen and gorgeous detailing. We are itching to know what makes the company’s creator, Hilde Leiaghat, tick. Welcome Hilde!
Linen is all the rage these days, but Pom Pom at Home embraced the trend at its inception. What was the inspiration for starting your business?
Pom Pom at Home was started in 2007 as a wholesale division for our retail stores, Pom Pom Interiors. I’ve always loved linens and designing. This was the perfect outlet for me to combine my passion. I started doing small things for the retail stores and then people started asking me to do more and more designs for them, so I thought why not. Now a couple of years later, here I am doing what I love.
What influences your design and color selection, and how would you describe your personal style?
Being a native of Belgium, I love everything linen. My idea behind the collection is to have colors and designs that can all work beautifully together. Our blues and pinks are very soft, allowing them to be mixed throughout any bed set up. My personal style is portrayed in my designs. Sometimes my clothes remind me of certain lines or vice versa. We actually joke about it at the stores sometimes.
With so many delightful Pom Pom at Home bedding options, what collection do you have on your own bed at home?
If you walked in my bedroom you would find the Belle mixed with the Mathilde and some Amour Bonheur pillowcases. When I started designing, I wanted most everything to be able to mix and match. My bed sometimes serves as the guinea pig for our designs. I like to know my designs can complete a certain look for a room and of course I have to feel if they are comfortable. I also like to test the durability of the linens, so I wash them frequently to make sure they are of the best quality. I like to know that my customers are getting the best.
Is there a favorite design concept this season?
Ruffles have been huge this season! We were actually thrilled to be featured in Country Living’s magazine article, “Ravenous Ruffles,” where a few of our products were recognized. I’ve always enjoyed using ruffles in my designs. I feel like it adds a feminine elegance to the design.
What’s in the future for Pom Pom at Home?
The whole organic trend has really taken off, which is great because it’s something that benefits everyone. At Pom Pom at Home, we’ve really noticed this and have listened to our clients’ wants and needs and have come up with some creative and eco-friendly designs. It is so great to know that people are being conscious about the lifestyles they are living and we’re happy that we can help be a part of that.
What key to success can you share with us?
Pursue what you love to do. Running the retails stores and wholesale business is very tough and time consuming, but if you love what you do and the people you work with it becomes fun. It feels great to work as hard as you can for something you really enjoy because the passion helps strengthen the company.
