We are now in the second week of our Summer 2017 catalog, so today we are shining the spotlight on five home accents from our cover. which you can shop here, that are all made in the USA. Take a look below.

Sturbridge Yankee Workshop Summer 2017 Catalog ILadderback Seating

Our classic Ladderback chairs come in five colors, and the twisted paper seats enhance their farmhouse appeal. They make perfect accent chairs, dining room chairs, and are even available as bar stools and counter stools.

Sturbridge Braided Rug Collection

These rugs share our namesake, and are designed to add softness to your floors that lasts a lifetime. Beautiful color combinations allow you to pick the perfect one, and with a variety of complementing braided accents, this USA made braided rug collection can furnish and decorate your entire home.

Punched-Tin Cupboard
(Rustic Country Collection)

Our Rustic Country Collection brings primitive home furnishings with functional appeal into any room of your home. The Punched-Tin Cupboard (seen in Red on our cover) has three shelves inside for storing dishes in the kitchen or dining room, or knick-knacks and belongings in a bedroom or family room. The punched-tin features a wheat-grass design for an Americana farmhouse look, and is reinforced with beadboard backing.

Americana Tapers Summer 2017Star & Stripes Table Lamp

This lamp is the perfect addiiton to your Independence day decor, as well as an ideal lighting solution for an Americana styled room. The pottery base features a charming glaze with red and white stripes accented by blue and a white star. Its 3-way function also allows you to control the amount of light filtering through the woven fabric drum shade.

Americana Tapers

While this is really three items, these tapers look so great together we are grouping them here. Featuring 1776, an American flag and the red, white and blue, these flameless tapers have waxy exteriors and flickering light just like authentic taper candles, and they are made in the USA.

Seville Giraffe Rug Collection

Seville Giraffe Rug

Our Country Windsor Chairs come as a set of two, and are a must-have in a farmhouse dining room. The black finish is exclusive to SYW, and their beautiful aesthetic and durability willl never go out of style. The Captain’s Dining Table features straight, clean lines like those of Shaker furniture, while creating a comfortable and lived-in look for your dining room. We love the dark look of the rug in the New England farmhouse above; it breaks up all the wood in the room and draws the eye to the beautiful details of the furniture. The Seville Giraffe Rug can work in the same way, and the pattern is not too complex as to take away from the furnishings – it only serves to amplify their classic style.

In our model farmhouse above, the country red cabinets create a charming contrast against the dark furniture, rug and the stains of the wood. Our made in the USA Rustic Country Pine Hutch is ideal if you have a space like the one shown in the photo, as you can bring in more storage while finishing the farmhouse look.

We can’t end this without mentioning the chandeliers above the dining room table; suspending two means you get optimal lighting and enhanced elegance. Our Five Arm Chandelier and Weathered Hartsville Chandelier are both ideal options for recreating the look above.
