Weekly Spotlight: Summer Pillows

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

The official or technical start to summer hasn’t even arrived yet, but we are deep into summer at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop! As part of our summer sale, we offer special savings on all of our pillows (not just those made in the USA) and this week we are featuring five new ones to add to your collection and summer home accents. You can find these and more in our print catalog and online – happy summer shopping!

Tulips & Daffodils Hooked Wool Pillow

Tulips & Daffodils

Bright blooms are beautiful additions to this red watering can, portrayed wonderfully in hooked wool. This Sally Eckman Roberts pillow is perfect on a bench or chair to greet summer guests in an entryway or for creating a cheerful statement in a sitting room this season. Display throughout the year as a summery reminder or to coordinate with floral decor.

Seagull Captain Skipper Indoor/Outdoor Pillow

Captain Skipper

This stylish seagull won’t bother you on your summer days, but he will add comfort to both indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the season. Crafted out of Climaweave™ polyester, this home accent is mildew and water resistant, so even after the occasional summer storm he will still look like new on patio furniture or a country chair. Keep Captain Skipper company with Sailor Gill, or simply coordinate with beach decor and coastal home furnishings.

Portland Head Light Hooked Wool Pillow

Portland Head Light

Speaking of the coast, our favorite locations to decorate with in the summer are those that sit on the rocky Maine border with the ocean. One of the many prides of Maine is the Portland Head Light, and Carolyn Bucha has beautifully adapted the scenery to hooked wool for adding a Vacationland look to your chairs, a sofa or bed this summer.

Folk Art Flower Hooked Wool Pillow

Folk Art Flair

A classic look for any home, this folk art inspired hooked wool pillow is the perfect addition to your most comfortable rooms. Its summer blues, greens, reds and yellows provide a pop of color among other cheerful home accents throughout the season and throughout the year. The vertical shape enhances the visual appeal as the hooked wool complements timeless country furnishings and decor.

Americana Bunny Hooked Wool Pillow

Americana Bunny

While many of our new pillows follow our USA summer theme, this bunny pillow is a charming way to express your patriotism in a more subtle way, if you decide to incorporate different styling aspects into your home decor (like vintage carts, animals, and so on). The brown bunny cheerfully sits in a garden cart, as the American flag waves beautifully above – a charismatic expression of American spirit and style throughout the summer and all year long.
