Empiric Included In Taxidermy Article in Collectors Weekly

Collectors Weekly posted a long article on taxidermy today. Empiric was featured, and our own Annie Crowninshield gave her two cents on the topic.

It's really an interesting article about the evolution of taxidermy and its current popularity. Here's their little snippet about us.

"... Empiric Studio, which print maker Michael Towey started in L.A. in 1997, sells taxidermy and science-themed decor, often with a ’60s space-age edge. “An early tag line we used for Empiric was ‘Furnishings for the Home or Lab,’” says Empiric spokeswoman Annie Lockwood Crowninshield. “Our values focus on measurable attributes before fashion and trends; it’s a scientific perspective. The taxidermy falls within the category of ‘things you might find in a laboratory or academic environment.’ It shows respect for knowledge and nature.

“It’s amusing to have a store with an aesthetic theme that is so out of sync with the popular perception of Los Angeles,” she continues. “Our clients love to use science objects for decorating their homes as well as for TV and movie sets. We don’t feel the Mid-Century Modern and Victorian aesthetics are mutually exclusive. Most of our clients are attempting to reconcile their appreciation for diverse periods and styles. It’s challenging, but amazing when successful.” "

We obviously love taxidermy, but we love using glass display domes in our showroom too. It's a great way to feature your favorite specimens and curiosities. We carry an assortment of domes and jars which often become homes for some of our small creatures. To check out some of the great creatures on the floor right now take a look here!
