Booth Flip with Mo from the Remontant: 10x10 Candle Bar


In the ever-evolving world of artisanal markets and pop-up shops, creating an inviting and memorable booth is crucial for success. Founder Sydney White of Vertical Ledge understands this perfectly. Every other year, Sydney runs a mini-series on YouTube, where she collaborates with local artisans to revamp their booths, showcasing the power of thoughtful design and high-quality displays. This year, Sydney teamed up with Mo from Remontant, a luxury candle maker, for an inspiring three-part video series. Let's delve into the details of this transformation and explore the importance of effective merchandising for luxury brands in a limited 10x10 space.

Part 1: The Original Booth

Mo’s original booth setup was simple yet functional, consisting of a single table, two bulky white metal racks, and a few bamboo table risers. While these elements served their purpose, they lacked the sophistication and cohesiveness that a luxury brand like Remontant deserved. The white metal racks were clunky, and the bamboo risers, though charming, didn’t quite align with the premium image Mo wanted to project.

Part 2: The Transformation

The transformation of Mo's booth was nothing short of remarkable. Sydney and her team at Vertical Ledge replaced the old setup with modern, bespoke displays designed to elevate the brand's presentation. The new design featured versatile, inviting, and innovative elements that created a comprehensive candle bar experience within a compact 10x10 booth.

Key Elements of the Transformation:

  1. Modern Displays: Vertical Ledge's sleek displays, made from high-quality Baltic birch, provided a cohesive and polished look. These displays not only showcased the products beautifully but also enhanced the overall aesthetic of the booth.

  2. Brand Colors: Keeping brand colors present is essential for brand recognition and consistency. Remontant’s brand colors were seamlessly integrated into the new setup. The primary color of Baltic birch was complemented with black accents, aligning perfectly with the brand's sub color.

  3. Multiple Points of Contact: The new booth design featured four different points of contact, allowing customers to experience the full range of Remontant’s offerings. This strategic layout ensured that visitors could engage with the brand from various angles, enhancing their overall experience.

Part 3: Customer Experience and Logistics

The final video in the series focused on the logistics of the new booth, the differences in customer experience, and the highlights of the various stations.

Enhanced Customer Experience:

  1. The A-Frame Display: This elegant display held a majority of the candle scents, allowing customers to easily pick up and explore each one. The A-Frame's design encouraged interaction, making it easier for customers to engage with the products.

  2. Candle Bar: The candle bar served as both a purchase area and a demo station. Lit candles showcased their even burning, while the inviting aroma drew customers in. This setup not only highlighted the product’s quality but also created an immersive sensory experience.

  3. Strategic Layout: By creating distinct areas within the booth, Sydney and her team ensured that the space felt open and welcoming despite its compact size. Each station was thoughtfully placed to maximize flow and encourage exploration.

The Importance of Effective Merchandising

For luxury brands like Remontant, effective merchandising is key to standing out in a crowded market. In a limited 10x10 space, every element must be carefully considered to create a cohesive and compelling presentation. Here are some critical points to remember:

  1. Consistency in Branding: Consistent use of brand colors and materials reinforces brand identity and makes the booth instantly recognizable.

  2. High-Quality Displays: Investing in high-quality, aesthetically pleasing displays elevates the perceived value of the products. Materials like Baltic birch add a touch of sophistication and durability.

  3. Customer Engagement: Creating multiple points of contact within the booth encourages customers to interact with the products, leading to a more memorable and enjoyable experience.

  4. Sensory Appeal: Incorporating sensory elements, such as the scent of lit candles, enhances the customer experience and creates a lasting impression.

  5. Efficient Use of Space: Thoughtful layout and strategic placement of displays ensure that even a small space can feel open and inviting.


Sydney White's collaboration with Mo from Remontant showcases the transformative power of effective booth design and merchandising. By utilizing Vertical Ledge's bespoke displays and focusing on brand consistency, Sydney created a sophisticated, engaging, and highly functional booth that truly elevated Remontant's luxury candles. This transformation serves as a valuable lesson for all artisans and small business owners: with the right design and strategic merchandising, even the smallest spaces can make a big impact.
