On the Launch of
Fixtures Close Up

“This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.” (Navin R. Johnson aka Steve Martin in the movie “The Jerk“)

The Goal of Fixtures Close Up Posts

The Devil is in the details.

This site is a 22,895+ Post, 1,115+ Page, 950+ category, 82,973+ image pictorial inventory of unique or otherwise interesting small-scale fixtures, displays, and visual merchandising strategies seen across the entire range of retailing (WordPress, Jan 1, 2023).  Just as a cityscape is built up of individual bricks, beams, and boards, so a store is constructed of small-scale outfitting and merchandising that combines to help create the selling-floor environment. Many of these small elements are unsung heroes in creating an effective, functional, appealing space for merchandising goods. Because of the wide-ranging creativity of designers, similar display problems are often solved in unique ways.  This site attempts to document these varying solutions … and provide a source of ideas and inspiration for additional new solutions or new applications of existing fixtures.  FixturesCloseUp targets a “purer” fixture readership than that of old-guard publications like Design:Retail Magazine, VMSD Visual Merchandising and Store Design, and Shop! Retail Environments, bypassing “waste circulation” to retail finance, site selection, architectural design, operations, flooring, lighting, HVAC, and other non-fixture focuses.
