Fire Extinguisher Vases

Things are heating up here at StableHouse. We just received some recycled Fire Extinguisher Vases from artist Valentino Llegada, and they are hot!

We love it when artists take objects that are at the end of their life and remake them into something new and different, giving them new purpose and a second life. We have quite a few different color choices and textures here in the store, and we even snagged a couple of rare vases that date back to 1972!

Come in to see the rest of our unique recycled fire extinguisher vases!

Stress Free – Coasters

Planning on hosting any holiday parties this year? We just got in these beautiful felt coasters that will protect your furniture and help your guests remember which glass is theirs.

Slip these on before you fill your guests glasses and they can carry their drinks around and put them down on your favorite piece of Simply Amish furniture or wherever they want without causing you any stress. Your guests will find their drinks easily and the you can relax and focus on more important things (like enjoying your party!).

Not only do these coasters add a beautiful accent to dinner parties, but they serve a really practical purpose. Felt is super absorbent and these coasters will soak up any minor spills and condensation protecting your furniture no matter where your guests place their glasses.

You will also be doing your bit for the environment by purchasing our coasters. Unlike paper coasters that are thrown away, these coasters can be used time and time again. They will stay looking beautiful for many years to come. You can simply wash them in cold water with a little soft soap and dry them flat. Because felt is so durable, your coasters will last you for many years to come.

We have sets with multiple colors, and single-color sets with different designs for standard and large wine glasses. Stop by and see these unique coasters/taggers on our Simply Amish tables!

Mix it Up with Pillows

Need something to freshen up your living space without making a huge re-decorating commitment? Come by and check out the new pillows we just got in at the store and see our new designer pillows. We have strategically placed some of them on the beds to give you an idea of how to pair pillows, and the rest are upstairs in the new StableHouse Decor room next to the stage.

Below are some of the pillows that we have here in the store, along with some helpful tips on how to decorate with them.
Create interest with textures and patterns.

When adding new pillows to your couch or bed, try to select throw pillows with different textures and patterns that will add interest to what you already have. Right now the iKat pattern is very popular, and it provides a nice rich pattern to the bed below.

Use odd numbers.

This recliner has several great things going on.  There’s a nice mix of textures: wood (quartersawn white oak to be more precise), leather, burlap, and fabric.  Secondly, we’ve added just one pillow for a big statement piece.Soften up the Outdoors

Fall is in the air, but that doesn’t mean that our outdoor spaces aren’t usable for a little while longer! Warm things up with some large overstuffed pillows and enjoy spending these cooler evenings outside.

Fall in Love with Fall Wreaths

Check out these new arrivals! We just received some beautiful (and unique) handmade wreaths for the fall. Bring autumn indoors with our generously sized wreaths in the warm hues of the season.  One of these fall wreaths for your entry way front door is the perfect way to welcome the beautiful autumn season.

We really love the heart-shaped wreaths, and have them here in two colors: red and yellow.Rustic stars give these wreaths a fun flare.

There’s just something special about a wreath hanging on the front door of a house.  It makes a home feel warm and welcoming, wouldn’t you agree?

This past year Simply Amish added a Rustic line of furniture to their collection, and it has inspired me to bring some Rustic Decor into the store to accent it. Isn’t that a gorgeous rustic table? Inspired by Simply Amish’s furniture, and natural objects, these handmade Rustic Oil Lamps are made out of Deer antlers […]
