FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pier 1 Imports, Inc., the original global importer of home décor and furniture, is taking the holidays to new heights this year by creating a life-sized, pop-up book installation open to the public December 2 – 6, 2015 at 503 Broadway in New York City, as well as by creating an original, limited edition, holiday pop-up catalog.
To bring the life-sized, pop-up book to life, Pier 1 Imports transformed an open New York City storefront in SoHo into “Pier 1 Imports: Christmas Pop-Up Storybook.” At this immersive event, people will walk through a storybook to discover magical scenes and colorful vignettes from some of Pier 1 Imports’ favorite Christmas style stories, including Plaid Tidings, Frosted Noel, Home Sweet Holiday and Champagne Shimmer. As part of the installation, Pier 1 Imports teamed up with Mariah Carey, the Queen of Christmas and biggest-selling female recording artist of all time, to create a modern day holiday story featuring a nod to her iconic hit, "All I Want For Christmas is You.”
“Everyone knows I’m a huge fan of the holidays and there’s nothing that I love more than decorating my home,” said Mariah Carey. “That’s why I was so excited to join Pier 1 Imports on their fabulous holiday pop-up book installation. My song, ‘All I Want For Christmas is You,’ has meant a lot to me and people around the world and it was exciting that Pier 1 Imports was inspired by the anthem this holiday.”
To help further inspire customers with endless possibilities, Pier 1 Imports also partnered with award-winning paper engineer Bruce Foster to create a limited edition, holiday pop-up catalog, since the Company’s new holiday trends just couldn’t be contained in a traditional book. The pop-up catalog highlights some of Pier 1 Imports’ favorite Christmas style stories and is being mailed to select customers.
“Pier 1 Imports is at its best during the holiday season with the latest design trends and fresh takes on traditional favorites,” said Eric Hunter, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Pier 1 Imports. “Pier 1 Imports offers something for everyone each season, and this year we wanted to showcase our one-of-a-kind holiday merchandise in an extraordinary way.”
Both the catalog and the installation bring to life the best style stories of the season and are sure to inspire customers with endless possibilities.

Customers are invited to visit the living pop-up book installation December 2 – 6, 11:00 a.m. – 7 p.m. ET daily or visit their nearest Pier 1 Imports location for inspiration and to decorate their home this holiday season.
