Weekly Spotlight: Fall 2019 Lighting Under $100

Wednesday, July 24th, 2019

Our Fall 2019 Lighting Sale is underway, so for this edition of Weekly Spotlight we’re featuring five new illuminating accents from our catalog. Since we are in our Fall season, we’ve selected two pieces of lighting that are specifically for harvest (and Halloween) decorating, but hey, if you want to decorate with them all year long – do your thing! Did we also mention that everything featured here is under $100?


Sunflower Pillar Candle | $12.95 – 16.95

Available in three sizes, this USA-made miniature pillar candle is beautifully decorated with country sunflowers.

Get the Look: Timeless Rustic Entryway

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Today’s inspiration comes from a beautifully rustic entryway that offers exceptional function and the down home comforts you might find at a multi-generational homestead. You can get a similar look by shopping our catalog and looking out for antique or flea market furniture that fits the style.

The Drop Leaf Table in the room above (via Houzz) is gorgeously designed, so for a look that is both exquisite and rustic, our Harper Leaf Table fits the bill. For a larger footprint (and more tabletop functionality) our Square Drop Leaf Table offers just enough tabletop space while still fitting in a smaller room like this entryway.

While the table is the object in the center of our line of sight, the second home accent in this space that caught our eye was the Ladderback Chair.

Our Ladderbacks are handcrafted in North Carolina and we recently added an Arm Chair to the collection – just in time to create this beautiful entryway look!

Adorn yours with one of our 28 Braided Chair Pads (most in multiple colors and differing fiber content) to add a little more comfort to the chair and decorative appeal to the room.

Onion Lanterns are staples in historical farmhouses and rustic homes, and our Seeded Glass Hanging Lantern offers similar charm as the Lantern above.

Below the lantern is an Area Rug boasting rich colors and handwoven charm. Many of our Area Rugs have similar qualities, but perhaps best for this space is the Crimson Folk Art Family Rug. Its warmth is apparent even in a photo, and tells a tale of hard work, family values and natural beauty exemplified by rural life.

What is your favorite part of this entryway? Have you found the perfect pieces to make your home a rustic charmer? Share your inspiration and stories in a comment below, and if you’re interested in any of the Sturbridge Yankee Workshop home furnishings shown here, just click on their pictures.

Lantern Lighting in Every Room

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

Incorporating lamps, pendants, sconces, even night lights into your home goes beyond just satisfying your lighting needs. Style and design are also important to think about, especially if you want a complementing look to take you from room to room. One of our favorite styles, the lantern lamp, works best to differentiate your lighting in each room while maintaining a similar look and offering the perfect amount of lighting. Below, we identify the most appealing ways to decorate and illuminate your home with this type of lighting.

Perhaps the most classic kitchen lighting option, one lantern pendant (or multiple) over a kitchen counter, island or table offers the best overhead lighting for preparing meals, writing down a recipe or chatting with guests. Choose a finish that matches your cupboards, counters or one that makes a colorful statement.

In place of a single chandelier, use lantern pendants in the dining room over your table. The rustic frame and glass panes complement both traditional and more formal rooms (and if they happen to match the lanterns from your kitchen, that’s an added bonus!).

This is a more primitive style lantern lamp than those above, but that’s exactly why it works in this simple, cottage-style bedroom. Its old-world feel resonates beautifully with the furniture and color palette, drawing the eye upwards to the raised ceiling and creating wonderful mood lighting in conjunction with the table lamps on each night stand.

This space exudes rustic charm, but it also shows that lantern lamps are a practical choice for lighting around a focal point in a room, like a mirror in the bathroom or a mantel in the family room, and also serve as wall art whether they are in use or not.

What better sight to see upon walking into your home, or to welcome your guests with than an elegant lantern lamp? Place one in an entryway or front hallway for the ideal amount of accent lighting and embellishment (candelabra bulbs are a nice touch).

Take your lantern lamps outside and accent your country porch or front stoop with antiqued charm and plenty of lighting. For both indoors and out, decorative or nostalgic bulbs give lantern lamps extra personality and enhance the long-standing comfort of your home.
