Favorites from our Fall 2015 Catalog

Last week, we launched our Fall 2015 collection. Yes, it’s still hot outside, which is all the more reason we’re dreaming about cooler temperatures and cozy evenings by the fire. Our inspiration for this season came in the form of spice! We love to mix this warm, orangey-red hue with our signature spa, teal, and plenty of natural textures to create a layered and welcoming room that you won’t mind hibernating in once winter begins. We’ve also been captivated by the idea of blending glittery, glamorous pieces (like our Bamboo Mercury Glass Lamp) paired with textured materials like natural fiber rugs or our Pascal Rope Bookcase. All in all, that balance of colors and textures is what brings personality and that perfectly-collected feel we’re all digging this season.
