Scroll Saw Art

We are excited to announce that we have some new art in the store.  Made by local Kansan Kelly Siebert, this art is cut out of various woods using a scroll saw. It is very delicate work, and some of her pieces have incredibly small detail cuts. “Lightning on the Plains” Here’s a word from […]


Pottery Lamps

New pottery lamps are here in the store, and they are as beautiful as the handmade furniture they light up.

These Milk Can lamps, finished in pewter, have elegant black shades with golden interiors that really warm up a space.


Each of the lamps are hand-signed by the artist (just like our Simply Amish Furniture).P1020967

These lamps are made by Georgia artist Charlie West, who has been working with clay since 1986.  In 1998, Charlie began turning his handmade pottery into stylish lamps and this led to the beginning of Charlie West Lamps.  We think that they are beautiful with the handmade furniture, and unique pieces of art for any home interested in having one of a kind pieces.SH-CharlieWest-lava P1020963Notice the sparkle in this “lava” finish. This lamp is stunning in person!

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!



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.

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.
