One of my very favorite parts of this office is the prop library. I could spend hours in there just admiring all of the objects that Martha and all the stylists here have collected over the years. I couldn't begin to count the number of pieces we have there –– we've amassed all manner of objects and homewares, all organized by item type and color, cataloged, and stocked on metal racks. There is a bar code system to track and inventory each item, and employees have to sign out pieces in order to use them in photo shoots or television segments. In other words, the space is a literal library, with two librarians who help us find the items we need and keep things in order.
I thought I'd take you all on a little tour of the prop house and document just how colorful and inspiring this tiny corner of our office is. Enjoy your sneak peek into the world of props!
