Here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we love our family pets just as much as you do, and we know how important they are towards making a home truly feel like “home.” Your dogs and cats might even play an intricate role in how you decorate various living spaces as well. So here are just some of our ideas for how to use pet themed items in a functional manner, that will also enhance your home decor. Today’s focus, none other than man’s best friend: Dogs.
Wipe Your Paws
Pictured here to the left is our new for winter, Wipe Your Paws Wall Shelf. Handcrafted of solid knotty pine, this wall shelf is a Sturbridge Yankee Workshop exclusive design. The shelf doubles as a rack with its three square head, rustic iron nails. Ideal for hanging leashes, keys, scarves, and more in the entryway, its pet themed nature is actually suitable for either cat or dog owning families. The words “Wipe Your Paws,” and tiny paw prints are painted in white on a black base. Rubbed edges add to its handmade appeal. You might also consider hanging the shelf in a garage or hallway, where extra storage space is always needed. Customers should expect natural variation in the wood grain and finish due to its handmade nature, which is proudly constructed here in the USA.
Dogs in All Shapes & Sizes
Highlighting the family dog within your home decor can be done so in a variety of ways here at Sturbridge. We have everything from the wall shelf shown above, to pillows, wall decor, and such decoratives as our new Metal Dog Sculpture shown here to the right. Home accents, especially in our dog category, offer a unique appeal to many different home decor styles. For example, this dog sculpture is hand chiseled and shaped from recycled steel drums; appealing to both the Eco-minded and artistically inclined households.
Distressed to resemble an antique decorative, the finish and detail will vary on the piece, due to its handcrafted nature. Display in the mudroom to have him greet your guests as they walk through the door, or decorate a mantle shelf and admire the dog as a piece of sculptural art. And we cant forget about our large selection of dog wall decor, as mentioned above. Our new Sunshine on a Cloudy Day Sign, shown below is a good place to start. Hang this made in the USA, white pine wall sign on any blank wall to let your dog know (and everyone else), how appreciated they are in the home.
