Monday Must-Haves: Fall Table Settings and Decor

Monday, August 7th, 2017

While there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the rest of summer, we don’t blame you for thinking ahead to pumpkins, turkeys, leaves, gourds and all things fall. Today, we are thinking about [fall] centerpieces and tablescapes, and the five must-have home accents to make any autumn occasion comfortable and well decorated (including some suggestions from our Fall 2017 catalog).

1. Table Runner: Forest Friends Table Runner, Crow & Pumpkin Braided Table Runner

A table runner keeps your table and dining room decoratives grounded; use similar colors and textures of the table runner in wall accents and other decor, and keep your table adorned with fall charm even when there aren’t guests surrounding it.

2. Placemats: Autumn Oak & Butterfly Placemat, ©Williamsburg Jacobean Placemat

Especially when matching or coordinating with the table runner, placemats can invigorate your place settings, and in many cases offer two looks in one.

3. Candles: Fall Leaves Pillar Candle

Set a romantic, lighthearted, welcoming, and most of all, cozy mood for Thanksgiving dinner and other events celebrating the harvest season. Add a warm scent or keep it flameless for worry-free accent lighting.

4. Dinnerware: Harvest Melamine Dinnerware

Durable, dishwasher safe and decorative; melamine dinnerware is a must-have for holidays and special celebrations.

5. Floral Touches: Mini Autumn Wreath, Green & Red Berry Stem, Faux Mini Sunflowers

Red and orange flowers, berries, candle rings and other natural touches bring any festive look together. Faux florals are ideal options for keeping a look throughout the fall months, but placing fresh picked flowers into rustic tin vases or a display bowl adds a personal touch that can be swapped out.

Monday Must-Haves: New Lighting Solutions

Monday, July 17th, 2017

These must-have lighting solutions are new to our Fall catalog, and offer multiple functions to give your entire home the light it needs.

For the family room. Our Parkside Floor Lamp lends plenty of light for reading, watching television and enjoying the company of friends and family. Its handsome bronze finish will enhance the warmth of the room and offer a look as timeless as family memories.

For the office. While it would also be a great lighting option for the family room, our Granger Adjustable Lamp is great for working or organizing the next family vacation in a home office. With a sleek design and crisp white shade, this no-fuss table lamp exemplifies functional lighting.

For an end table. Especially next to the bed or in an entryway, the decorative Edison Accent Lamp offers twinkling accent light and exquisite design. This battery-operated lamp is low maintenance and ideal for any home.

For the outdoors. String lights can turn any patio or covered porch into a charming outdoor escape, and our Caged LED String Lights add a rustic feel to yours. The plastic bulbs are extra durable for illuminating year after year. Also made for the outdoors is the Vintage Tin Lantern. Set it on the front stoop or along a walkway and give your yard a primitive, worry-free and decorative lighting solution.

Monday Must-Haves: Nautical Home Accents

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Industrial Oval Mirror

Get the most timeless nautical look this summer and throughout the year with a few must-have home accents combined with your personal style and tastes. For additional nautical inspiration and coastal decor, visit our website.

Walls

Nautical prints and landscapes are beautiful when hanging on your walls. We recommend being choosy about the art you display – don’t just throw something up for the sake of covering a bare space. So while you collect just the right piece or pieces, hang a stylish mirror like our Industrial Oval Mirror. Its industrial design and likeness to a ship’s porthole make it a great addition to a nautical room or home.

Sailor Cat Hooked Wool PillowPillow

You won’t be surprised when we choose a hand hooked wool pillow for a nautical must-have. This Sailor Cat Pillow by artist Mary Lake Thompson carries all the charm of a feline seafarer, and the hooked wool adds a
natural texture perfect for this style.

Adjustable Cage Floor LampLighting

When decorating your home with the sea in mind, you can almost never go wrong with caged lamps.

This Adjustable Cage Floor Lamp with a bronzed finish enhances the warmth of other home accents, and while the shade is decorative, it also allows plenty of light through to illuminate your nautical space at night.

Lobster on Stripes Accent Rug

Annie Soft SculptureAccent Rug

One of our favorite new web exclusive home accent just so happens to be perfect for nautical decorating. Blue and white are the nautical colors, and a bright red lobster reinforces coastal charm.

You can also get this Liora Manne design on an indoor/outdoor pillow.

Collectible

Joe Spencer is back with a pair of sailor soft sculptures. Shown here is Annie, holding a sailor’s knot and sporting a lovely sailor’s uniform. Her bottom is weighted, allowing Annie to sit on a shelf, mantel or table next to seashells, an additional sailor’s knot or her companion Avery.
