Monday Must-Haves: Everyday Function from Fall 2018

Monday, July 16th, 2018

Pleated Bronze Adjustable Floor Lamp | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopOur Fall 2018 catalog is now live, and if you’re not yet ready to flip through pages of Halloween and Harvest decor, don’t worry! There are still plenty of items that can be incorporated into your home all year long. Today we’re featuring five of those items, which are not only decorative but also offer every day function.

First is our Pleated Bronze Adjustable Floor Lamp. Three of the best things about this lamp are its decorative pleated shade; its adjustable functionality; and its sale price (Fall = Lighting Sale here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop). Not only does this lamp adjust vertically, but the arm also swivels so you can direct light where you need it. The 3-way bulb socket also means you can adjust the amount of lighting in a room.

Home Magnet Board & Magnets | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Removable Tray Bar Cart | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe Home Magnet Board is a laser-cut home accent that is simple in design but highly functional in your home. The nine magnets are included so you can start organizing right away.

This next item is already a favorite among us here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. The Removable Tray Bar Cart is ideal for entertaining, but its multi-purpose potential gives it must-have quality. Both wood trays on the metal frame are removable, so you can easily serve guests or move food from the kitchen to another room. The wheels make it a breeze to move the entire cart, and they feature a locking mechanism that will sturdily hold this furnishing in place. The charming design makes it beautiful for displaying all year long, but since the trays are removable and the frame easily folds up, it’s a cinch to store, too.

What’s better than a rustic wood basket? Three of them! The three baskets shown below make up a set to give you more styling options in your home. Hang this Basket Trug Set up on a wall or place on a tabletop to hold fruit (liner recommended), flameless candles and collectibles within a centerpiece.

Last but certainly not least are the Black Cat Salt & Pepper Shakers. These whimsical kitchen accessories are perfect for any cat lover, and will decorate your table or countertops while offering extra seasoning for your meals. They also come in handy as a fun gift for a friend.

It’s only fitting that our Fall/Halloween catalog launches this Friday, the 13th. That’s right, we are saying so long to Summer and hello to Autumn – as far as our catalog goes, anyway. You will still see some summer-related posts here on the blog, on Facebook and on Twitter, but it won’t be long before we’ve fully transitioned into the new season.

For these next two days, though, you can still get special savings on pillows and made in the USA home accents by visiting our website or submitting any last-minute orders over the phone. And for even more savings, browse our selection of clearance items; five of which we have featured below.
