Meet Anne Mancuso, Cantoni‘s Creative Director, or “Visual Guru” as we like to call her. For the past 14 years, Anne has been conceiving and constructing innovative and inspiring visual displays at our Flagship Dallas store. From constructing a giant bird’s nest on a wall as part of a tree display, to designing an unconventional upside down Christmas tree, (now an annual holiday tradition and what Anne believes to have started a worldwide trend), Anne never ceases to amaze and inspire us with her dazzling and eccentric settings and displays.
In her own words…
“I’ve cranked out quite a few projects, had a handful of masterpieces and a flop or two, but I am constantly inspired to keep pulling ideas out of the other and make them happen. Along with every project comes a flurry of questions ‘where’d you get those sticks in that vase?, how’d you paint that wall to look like fabric?, are those blue pumpkins real?’ Ask Anne not only gives me the opportunity to share my ‘behind the scenes’ world with a broader audience but also functions as a place where I can answer and address all of those burning design questions while hopefully inspiring both our current and new Cantoni followers along the way!”
