Meet Madelynn

We're crushing on Madelynn Furlong, the voice behind minimalist-chic style blog Wide Eyed Legless and assistant designer for Target. We sat down with the creative prowess to discuss the spring trend she can't wait to post about and what to expect on Target's apparel racks this fall.  
 
You're an assistant apparel and accessories designer for Target. Describe the corporate culture there in three words. Fast, fun and friendly. 
 
Everyone's buzzing about this week's Target collaboration with Peter Pilotto. What's your favorite designer collaboration of all time? Back in 2008 Target did a collaboration with Alexander McQueen. Needless to say - it was amazing. 
 
Best piece you've ever designed? The pieces I am working on now - all I can say is that next fall [at Target] is going to be amazing! 
 
We've loved your blog posts about your loft in Minneapolis, where Target is based. Simply put, what's your decorating style? Simplistic, raw. 
 
Are chandeliers always a good idea? Depends on the chandelier! I am not usually a fan of anything too glitzy. 
 
How do make your home cozy when it's cold? I light lots of candles, put on a good record and drink a cup of tea.
 
Your all-time favorite furniture find? My bludot Toro Lounge chair
 
Spring trend you're most excited about? Monochromatic dressing.
 
Do you shop the Dollar Spot at Target? Not usually. I try to buy only what I need.
