Wednesday Spotlight: Decor Storage

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Boot & Storage BenchAfter the turkey is cleared and the final days of November have passed, winter and Christmas decorating takes over (if it hasn’t already in your home)! One of the best ways to avoid a decorating headache is preparation, which includes packing your decoratives neatly so when they come back out next year you don’t have to spend a majority of your time untangling, searching and sorting. Start with your harvest décor now; today we’re spotlighting five different home storage options – from accessories to furniture –  for organizing and keeping seasonal accents out of the way, and being ready to pull them out next year.

Black Hyacinth Cocktail Storage TrunkBench and Trunk Storage

We offer a variety of storage bench options that fit your lifestyle and space, and our Boot & Storage Bench is one of our favorites. A piece from our Rustic Country Collection, this bench is handcrafted in the USA and is available in a variety of colors. Store seasonal accessories like mittens, hats and shoes, or keep your décor out of the way and covered. The bench seat is roomy enough to sit on, and will fit your favorite pillows and seasonal accents. Storage Trunks are also stylish options, and can function as a coffee table or an extra surface at the foot of your bed. The roomy, enclosed trunk space is perfect for seasonal throws and pillows, as well as larger décor and accents.

For ribbon, craft supplies and other small items, our Vintage Storage Holder is perfect for keeping on a desk or counter – an organizer’s dream! Store these items neatly and within reach so you’re not scrambling for supplies at the last minute, and with the glass panel lid you can keep better track of what you have and what you need so holiday and special occasion preparation will be virtually seamless.

Simple Solutions

When in doubt, think of drawers! A simple furniture piece with deep or wide drawers can provide adequate space for almost anything you want to keep stored. Our Apothecary Stand is an ideal example of this; its simple yet traditional design is crafted from sturdy pine that will last through many seasons and keep your accents safely tucked away.

Braided Baskets

A classic braided look in basket form; whether you have their rug complements, these baskets are great for keeping seasonal pillows and other larger accents inside, as well as holding those knitted projects you’re working on as gifts. The possibilities are nearly endless, and with the convenient handles you can move them throughout your home to better suit your storage and style needs.
