Back to School Idea Board

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

There are a couple more weeks left of summer vacation for students and their families here in New England, but the time for back to school shopping and planning is now. We’ve put together a back to school idea board for the home, which includes suggestions for keeping kids and the entire family focused and productive when they have homework, special classroom projects or need a space to take a breath and relax.

Get the Look: Timeless Rustic Entryway

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Today’s inspiration comes from a beautifully rustic entryway that offers exceptional function and the down home comforts you might find at a multi-generational homestead. You can get a similar look by shopping our catalog and looking out for antique or flea market furniture that fits the style.

The Drop Leaf Table in the room above (via Houzz) is gorgeously designed, so for a look that is both exquisite and rustic, our Harper Leaf Table fits the bill. For a larger footprint (and more tabletop functionality) our Square Drop Leaf Table offers just enough tabletop space while still fitting in a smaller room like this entryway.

While the table is the object in the center of our line of sight, the second home accent in this space that caught our eye was the Ladderback Chair.

Our Ladderbacks are handcrafted in North Carolina and we recently added an Arm Chair to the collection – just in time to create this beautiful entryway look!

Seeded Glass Hanging Lantern

Adorn yours with one of our 28 Braided Chair Pads (most in multiple colors and differing fiber content) to add a little more comfort to the chair and decorative appeal to the room.

Onion Lanterns are staples in historical farmhouses and rustic homes, and our Seeded Glass Hanging Lantern offers similar charm as the Lantern above.

Below the lantern is an Area Rug boasting rich colors and handwoven charm. Many of our Area Rugs have similar qualities, but perhaps best for this space is the Crimson Folk Art Family Rug. Its warmth is apparent even in a photo, and tells a tale of hard work, family values and natural beauty exemplified by rural life.

What is your favorite part of this entryway? Have you found the perfect pieces to make your home a rustic charmer? Share your inspiration and stories in a comment below, and if you’re interested in any of the Sturbridge Yankee Workshop home furnishings shown here, just click on their pictures.
