Wednesday Spotlight: Web-Only Lighting

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Set of 3 Harmony LampsRoman Bronze Mini PendantWe are nearing the final hours of our lighting sale and our fall catalog – that’s right, the holidays are almost upon us here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop! For this week’s Spotlight we’re showcasing some of our favorite and most interesting lighting options that have only appeared on our website. From the ceiling to the wall to the table, your lighting needs can be met by our print and online catalogs. Let us know below what you prefer for lighting, and if you’ve participated in our fall sale.

Technically this is three items, but since it’s a set we will consider it one for our Spotlight. That’s right, our Harmony Lamps come in a set of three: an accent lamp, table lamp and floor lamp. The black metal bases feature a primitive burnt gold hue, and are accented by elegant silk shades. Use in a family room, an office, or spread them throughout your home to incorporate regal and complementary lamps into your treasured home décor.

Woodville Floor LampPendants create a classic look in a dining room and kitchen, especially when used in multiples. The Roman Bronze Mini Pendant creates a warm and inviting look through the amber coloration on the shade, especially when the light is turned on. The bronze frame adds an antique look that will complement your country kitchen and home.

Metal Owl Night Light

Portland LampWe believe nightlights should be as decorative they are functional, and this charming owl is just that. The simple metal form will coordinate with any room, and the light shining from behind makes him look warm and friendly. During the daylight hours, he will sit proudly and add natural flair to an otherwise plain space.

The Woodville Floor Lamp is a little more whimsical than a standard floor lamp, but every home should include a little whimsy! The carved pinecone accent draws the eye upwards and to the rattan caged shade; a perfect complement to the brown column. The base features a regal look that draws this lamp away from being too informal, and it sturdily holds the entire piece in place. Recommended for a cabin or rustic home, this lamp will add country charm to any décor (and there’s a coordinating table lamp to complete the look).

Last but certainly not least, our Portland Lamp is a charming addition to any table. The antique oil lamp look gives any space a warm and inviting feeling, and although the black fabric shade appears quite dark, the amount of light that shines through will be perfect for reading or doing work at a desk. Use one as a conversation piece, or place multiple in a bedroom as bedside lamps or in a family room and coordinate with similar primitive lamps and décor.

Wednesday Spotlight: Birds

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Garden Delight Hooked Wool Pillow in Red

As one of your (and our!) favorite decorative accents, we couldn’t ignore some of our new favorite bird décor items that you can find in our fall catalog. For this week’s spotlight, we are illuminating a couple of these new favorites along with some great items that you’ve grown to love. Birds will complement almost any room décor; whether you have a nature-inspired design or a clean-line modern look, so fill your home with avian inspired accents and enjoy the friendliness and charm they bring to your home all year long.


We’ll start with an addition to one of our loveliest pillow collections: the Garden Delight hooked wool pillows from artist Katie McCrostie. Now available in red, this pillow features simple garden imagery complemented by birds resting among the leaves and flowers. The red background will make a statement on any sofa or bench, and looks great next to its Beige counterpart.


Bird Nest Tealight HolderThis cute little guy makes a perfect addition to any centerpiece or small table. Place a real or flameless tealight or votive in his nest; he’ll silently watch over it as you go about your day. Carved to look like real wood, the details on the bird’s body and the twigs of the nest create a rustic appeal that exudes charm as they are illuminated by candle light.


Speaking of light – one of the most colorful and charming pieces in our fall catalog has to be the Home Tweet Home Night Light. You’ll admire its bright, festive colors during the day and be even more impressed with the homey birdhouse and its avian inhabitants when they are illuminated in a hallway or bedroom at night.Home Tweet Home Night Light


Bird Trio Planter

Set of 4 Pedestal Birds

We know many of you keep beautiful and thriving gardens, so our next accent is a planter for indoor or outdoor use. Three bluebirds will keep your plants company, and give you extra space for growing more during the summer and spring. Place on the railing of a covered porch to welcome your guests, or display on a windowsill and allow your plants to get as much light as needed.


We end this week’s Spotlight with a new bird accent, or rather accents. These four avian companions will add regal charm to any mantel, bookshelf or table centerpiece, as well as pops of color and charming details. They look great next to plants, candles and other décor pieces, and with varying heights they will give your displays intriguing depth.

Bronze Desk Lamp with Outlet

Bronze Spindle Metal Lamps - Set of 3

The fall season has started here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, and to avoid wishing summer away, this week’s Must-Have list focuses on timeless home accents that you will use year round. When the September Equinox does come around and the sun starts appearing for shorter amounts of time during the day, you’ll be prepared with these functional and stylish lighting options – all of which are on sale.

Ultimate Function

Besides its obvious function of illuminating your workspace, this lamp provides further use with a built-in outlet on the base. Now you can charge your cell phone, laptop and other electronics while you work, and without overcrowding your wall outlet. The dark bronze finish will complement your office décor, and has three adjustment points for focusing the light right where you need it.

Capiz Rooster Night Light

Three are Better Than One

For matching lighting in your bedroom or a family room, we are excited to offer you this set of two table lamps and a floor lamp. With an eye-catching spindle design, woven shade and a complementary black metal base, each lamp makes a statement anywhere in your home, and creates a consistent and stylish look throughout.

Mason Jar PendantStylish Illumination

This isn’t an ordinary night light, but that’s exactly why it’s a must-have. The beautiful colors of the rooster make a lively and classic statement anywhere in your home, and you will enjoy the light shining through an authentic capiz shell insert. The combination of metal and shell create an interesting accent piece that will look just as good during the day as it does at nighttime.

Antiqued Cage Pendant

The Mason Jar is a favorite piece of country décor because of its simplicity and versatility. This Ceiling Pendant exemplifies these characteristics, as it can be used in multiples over a kitchen counter, individually in an entryway, or in a charming bathroom (as well as in any other room in your home!). The fabric cord gives it antiqued appeal, and the glass shade with the classic Mason Jar imprint complements other Mason Jar décor and lighting.

Industrial style and country charm come together in this caged pendant. Antiqued for primitive appeal, this pendant is just the right size for hanging above a breakfast nook, a small kitchen counter or in the entryway of your home. It complements other caged lighting, and you can add more style by using a decorative bulb or our Nostalgic Bulb.
