As some of you may know, we provide Hotel Ella with our custom bathroom amenity line. We first met the owners of Hotel Ella, Ana and Bill Stapleton, in our spring 2014 antique booth in Marburger Farm. A few weeks after the show, I received an email from Ana saying she had bought some of our hand-poured candles and was interested in using and carrying them in the hotel. She also asked us to assist in sourcing a few pieces for their outdoor spaces.
As Smoot and I began to build a business relationship with the Stapletons, we also became really great friends. They're wonderful people that we love and admire. During the time we were getting to know Ana and Bill, we had also started developing our hotel amenity line, which ended up being a perfect fit for Hotel Ella! Our modern vintage style blends so well with the hotel's classic, yet modern feel. The Texas Sweet Grass name and scent sealed the deal!
Since opening Hotel Ella, the Stapleton's also opened South Congress Hotel, one of the hottest hotels in the country. They work so hard and always execute their impeccable style to whatever they are a part of.
Looking back at this story, it's a great reminder to always be kind to others and open to forming genuine relationships because you never know where they'll lead. We're so thankful for the opportunity we have with Hotel Ella, and we're so proud of Ana and Bill and all that they have accomplished.
