We are halfway through our Fall season, but there are still many great furnishings and vignettes available in our catalog to help you get inspired for autumn. Today we’re highlighting five of our newest pillows that will bring fall vibes and country charm to the rooms of your home.

English Appliqued Sunflower Pillow

This golden sunflower will last all year long, and it looks great when paired with the coordinating candle mat.

Remember When Hooked Wool Pillow

Artist Billy Jacobs never fails to create beautiful seasonal imagery, and his art is even more delightful when it’s reproduced on a pillow.

Summer to Fall Sunflower Entryway Idea Board

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

This idea board is inspired by our new Good Sunflower Jute Rug, designed by artist Suzanne Pienta. Its vibrant colors and eco-friendly braids are perfect for the floors of any home, and the sunflowers are a perfect transitional flower as we move away from summer decor to fall home accents. The sunflower motif continues with the Iron Sunflower Mirror, which is as much a striking piece of wall art as it is a wall mounted looking-glass.

The practical furnishings in this entryway idea board include the bench and floor lamp. Both are simple enough to carry from season to season, but provide maximum function in any sized entry. We also included the Blue Bird Print from artist Bonnie Fisher because its colors are complementary to the jute rug, and the imagery shows signs of fall on the farm.

We hope this latest idea board inspires you to freshen up your entry with decor that doesn’t let go of summer quite yet, but is completely welcoming to fall.
