PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT

Introducing: Our Newest Collection

Lagom is a Swedish word that means “just the right amount.” Not too little, not a lot, but everything perfectly in its place. We love this word and the serene balance it conveys. We’ve used “lagom” and the Swedish sensibility as our inspiration for our newest product launch. The calming colors, relaxed design, and subtle beauty of this collection pay homage to this laid-back, no-hurry lifestyle.

Here are some of our standout pieces:

1. Burlwood Campaign Chest

The Burlwood Campaign Chest combines the organic beauty of burlwood with elegant gold accents that give it a contemporary update. This piece is a visual expression of two of our impressions of Swedish style.

2. Scandinavian Live Edge Table

This table is a spectacular testament to Mother Nature and her timeless beauty. The Scandinavian Live Edge Table is a solid piece of wood that finds style in imperfection and represents the easier side of Swedish country living.

3. Bubbles Chandelier

Blue is often associated with Sweden. The gorgeous, modern Bubbles Chandelier is a new take on contemporary lighting and the trademarks of Swedish style.

4. Acrylic Barrel Chair

This chair is modern without sacrificing comfort. The Acrylic Barrel Chair is our nod to modern Swedish living.

5. Amal Wooden Table

The Amal Wooden Table has the charm of the Swedish country side with subtle ornamentation on its pedestal base. Plus, it's extendable, so you can use it for an intimate dinner or a gathering of family and friends.

New Item: Cassis Bar Stools

Buyer, Tori Hunger, talks her favorite March new items – the Cassis Bar Stools (in red and blue). Here’s why she loves them:

Q: What’s your favorite thing about these bar stools?

A: It’s not often I come across a piece of red furniture that I’m drawn to because sometimes it might feel like too much for my personal style, but the combination of the diamond pattern and bold red color makes for a cool piece that is fun AND classic. Also, I love the fact that they’re indoor and outdoor safe. I think the initial thought might be to have them outside, but I love the idea of having a teak wood and rattan piece in my home as well because it gives the organic feel I crave for the inside of our house.

Q: What makes these pieces special?

A: Well, a lot of our items are hand-crafted, and these stools are no exception – they’re hand-woven in Indonesia, and when you see the rattan pattern, you can’t help but have an immediate appreciation for the detail that goes into something like that.

Q: Can you give us three ways you’d utilize these pieces?

A: Well, my husband and I want to buy them for our patio bar outside by the grill. They’re easy because they’re all you really need to use if you’re trying to bring an area of your home to life.  Another way would be inside, near our kitchen island. These pieces have enough character to simply be decorative against a wall and pulled over when you have company hanging out in the kitchen. Lastly, we have some friends who have high standing tables outside by their pool, and I can imagine two of the blue bar stools set up on each side of those tables with some pillows that have a pop of color.

The Bone Inlay Process

The Roman Empire made several contributions to past and present society, one being chair design. As the Empire expanded across Europe, so did its methods of craftsmanship. It was during this reign that curule chairs were first introduced, said to have originated in Etruria. These chairs, or stools, were reserved for magistrates holding imperium to sit on during court or royal gatherings. One of the earliest recorded examples of the curule chair dates back to 494 BC when Roman dictator Manius Valerius Maximus was awarded one as a result of his victory over the Sabines.

Majestic and Moorish: Our Bone Curule Stool | Wisteria

In Rome, the curule chair was traditionally made of ivory and had a wide x-base, no arms, and no back. Keeping up with this regal tradition, we’ve created our Bone Curule Stool in the same fashion but updated it for a more modern appeal. Combining 18th-century Empire Style with 16th-century Moorish design, this exquisite stool has the best of both worlds. Each stool is embellished with hundreds of pieces of camel bone that are carved and inlaid into a wood frame by hand—a meticulous and time-consuming process skilled artisans endure to create these imperial pieces. Fit for a king or a queen, this stool is complete with a durable white linen cushion, and is an ideal seat for a vanity or desk. Hint: Pair two at the end of the bed for even more regal ambiance.

Unraveling the Story: Our Zardosi Wall Art

Zardosi is an intricate Persian embroidery technique that dates back to the Mughal Empire under the patronage Emperor Akbar. Traditionally done in gold bullion wire (Zardosi is a Persian word that means sewing with gold), this detailed needlework was once used by Persian royalty to embellish their garments and accessories. Due to industrialization and loss of royal patronage, this unique and extremely detailed technique is now practiced by only a handful of artisans—a dying art we’d like to keep alive.

Zardosi Method 

The Zardosi embroidery process begins with the artisan sitting (usually cross-legged) around the wooden framework with their tools. These tools include curved hooks, needles, gold or silver wire, and whatever style beads or sequins they choose. The design is then traced onto the fabric and stretched over a wooden frame—the intricate embroidery then begins.

Our Collection

Unraveling the Story: Our Zardosi Wall Art | Wisteria

Our Zardosi Isaiah Crown Wall Art  is fit for a king and will deliver a spiritual element to a wall space. Profiled in a gold wood frame, this ornate crown features delicate, hand-sewn beads and is outlined with the verse from Isaiah 28:5, “In that day the Lord Almighty will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people.”

Zardosi Cross Wall Art | Wisteria

Our Zardosi Cross Wall Art fits with holiday or everyday decor. Featuring an ornate crown atop a cross, this intricately detailed piece delivers the message from Isaiah 40:29–31, “He gives his power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength . . .”

Zardosi Psalms Crown Wall Art | Wisteria

Last but not least, our Zardosi Psalms Crown Wall Art  features an ornate crown on a bed of laurel leaves above the verse from Psalms 149:4, “For the Lord takes delight in his people he crowns the humble victory.” This beautiful piece is embroidered on stretched canvas over a wood frame.

We can’t imagine how a wonderfully unique and traditional technique has become almost obsolete, and though it’s not much, we hope these pieces will help keep this dying art alive.
