Monday Must-Haves: Storage & Organization (Winter 2019)

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Our latest Must-Haves list is all about storage and organization, and five new home accents from our Winter 2019 catalog. These items are decorative, but they also function as helpers throughout your home so you can stay on track, stay organized and keep your rooms as tidy as possible throughout the year.

USA Magnet Wall Art

This magnet board adds Americana charm and a place to hang important notes, grocery lists and even a photo or two on a wall of your home. The five star magnets are included, too.

Primitive Home Wall Organizer

This metal wall organizer coordinates with the above magnet board, although it will keep your organized all on its own. With five hooks and two envelop slots, this multi-functional home accent is perfect for a kitchen or home command center.

Kitchen Sentiments Tea Towel Calendar

With the start of the new year, it’s time for a new calendar. This one is designed by artist Susan Winget and includes everything you need to hang it on a wall – besides a nail or hook. Keeping track of the days and weeks will be a breeze.

This set of bookends may be smaller than these other must-have items, but their reputation for tidiness and organization is just as large. Crafted out of cast iron, these durable pieces will sturdily support your favorite books on a bookshelf, desk or mantelpiece.

Quick Tip: Limitless Bar Cart

Quick Tip: Limitless Bar Cart | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Bar cart functionality goes beyond storing beverages and displaying your nice wine glasses. In the bathroom you can organize toiletries, makeup, hair products and other item with ease. Corral your accessories in your bedroom or in a closet by keeping them together and easily accessible. Other great places in your home for a bar cart include the entryway, where you may need to add an accent lamp or set down your keys when you walk through the door; and the laundry room, for storing detergents or offering a space for folding. Wheeled bar carts are our favorite, because you can easily transport them out of a room and into another with ease.

New Furniture with Unique Functionality

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Are you looking for new ways to organize areas of your home? Do you want a furniture piece that not only looks great, but has additional storage space as well? Recently at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, three new items have been added to our assortment of Home Storage.


Slatted Solutions

Pictured here to the left is our new Slat Door Cupboard. Handcrafted of pinewood, this cupboard features a convenient magnetic closure and a slatted front door and side panels. With two interior shelves, we’re sure you can find something to store inside. If used in a casual living area, consider using for book, magazine or small blanket storage. If used in the kitchen, we suggest storing your serving dishes or handy tools that you might want at easy access, but that you also want out of sight when not in use. Or, use in the bedroom and place a table lamp on top to make an attractive bed stand. Its dark vintage stain highlights the beautiful wood grain detail and will enhance any room’s decor. The Slat Door Cupboard is also made in North Carolina, USA.

Triangular Motion

Our unique Motion Table will be your go-to when in need of extra table space . This portable, triangular accent table showcases striking wood grain detail. Ideal for your laptop while in the living room, or simply use it as a convenient side table that won’t take up too much space in a home office or bedroom. Its small size offers versatility as a plant stand or cute telephone stand as well. The solid wood Motion Table features three black, rolling caster wheels, to assist in easily moving around while cleaning. A bottom shelf offers space for display of books, decoratives or other personal items.

Shaker Simplicity

A final item we suggest for a new way to organize your home, is our Large Shaker Desk Organizer. While Sturbridge has carried the smaller size for quite some time as part of Shaker Furniture collection, this larger size provides 10 more inches of compartment space. Keep the home office, mudroom, or other personal desk area neat and organized with this all in one storage piece that is handcrafted in true Shaker style. Drawers to store office supplies or stationary, convenient slots or open compartments to secure mail and important paperwork, and other shelf space for journals, books or weekly planners. Proudly made right here in Maine, this SYW Exclusive Desk Organizer is available in a black or cherry stain.
