Wisteria’s Best of 2016

Before we go into the new year, we’re showing off our 2016 most-loved new arrivals. Take a look back with us and fall in love all over again.

 

Top 10 New Arrivals for 2016

1. EMERSON COUNTER STOOL – BRASS

t14485_01Inspired by this evolutionary time in American design, we designed our Emerson Counter Stool in-house, a modern interpretation of this evocative period. High seating is framed in brushed stainless steel with a white linen cushion, lending a stylish, updated retro complement to any counter or bar.

 

 

2. DISAPPEARING COFFEE TABLE – RECTANGLE

t11914_01-3Our Disappearing Coffee Table is an example of an antique made modern. It was designed after an early 20th-century coffee table. We’ve taken that and turned it into a modern treasure as a sophisticated and useful acrylic table with a glass top. A functional design that will look great in any room.

 

 

3. PIER MEDIA CONSOLE

t14383_01This simple, rustic Pier Media Console adds function without forfeiting style to your living space. With two shelves behind sliding doors, this piece features an all wood construction complemented by a lime wash finish. It reminds us of walking along the pier, bringing the essence of the shore to you (minus the sand!). Its slatted profile allows circulation, so we’ve fitted this console with cutouts for cables—making it a perfect platform for media components. This versatile piece also functions as a curio cabinet or an entertaining buffet.

 

4. EMERSON BAR STOOL BRASS

t14484_01Inspired by this evolutionary time in American design, we designed our Emerson Bar Stool in-house, a modern interpretation of this evocative period. High seating is framed in brushed stainless steel with a white linen cushion, lending a stylish, updated retro complement to any bar-height station.

 

 

5. HAIR-ON-HIDE COUNTER STOOL

A lovely showcase of materials, this stool features a real, hand-stitched cowhide cushion fashioned to a slender stainless steel frame, offering a modern yet rustic appeal. Designed in-house, this piece offers stylish seating alongside your kitchen counter and makes a sophisticated statement in any setting. Due to the nature of the materials, variances in color and design can occur.

6. EMERSON COUNTER STOOL – SILVER

t14486_01-1Inspired by this evolutionary time in American design, we designed our Emerson Counter Stool in-house, a modern interpretation of this evocative period.

7. ACRYLIC COUNTER STOOL

t14488_01Combining form and function, our Acrylic Counter Stool clearly suits any style in any setting. Thick acrylic is molded to create this minimalist design, delivering an airy aesthetic that reduces visual weight in a space. This smooth stool is fitted with two footrests on either side, so you can easily rest your feet while you’re seated. Versatile, this transparent piece will deliver a sleek, very modern look to a counter or bar station.

 

8. SMALL LACQUER CHEST

t14741_01Update your space with the clean, minimal lines of our Small Lacquer Chest. This sturdy and stylish storage solution features two deep bottom drawers that will fit just about anything and a slim top drawer for loose jewelry or smaller miscellaneous items.

 

 

9. MARBLE COFFEE TABLE

t14483_01

Deliver a luxurious element to your living space with our Marble Coffee Table. Designed in-house, this sculptural table features a sleek marble top and an architectural metal base. Its construction creates the illusion the marble is floating, delivering an airy aesthetic, and the striated details delicately dance on the tabletop, creating visual texture. It’s sleek enough to fit into a strictly modern home or among traditional decor. This visually pleasing piece establishes modern luxe when showcased in any setting.

 

10. MODERN FRETWORK CHEST

t14225_01Though little is known of him, Luke Lightfoot is associated with the extraordinary carvings at Claydon House, Buckinghamshire, built by Lord Verney in the 18th century. A skilled artisan in carving wood and stone, Lightfoot’s fretwork—an ancient carving technique that began over 3,000 years ago—inspired our Modern Fretwork Chest. This hand-finished and -carved chest features a two drawer façade with mirrors and intricate fretwork detailing. With carved grooves on either side of the drawers, this piece caters to easy opening and a very contemporary aesthetic. Due to the handmade nature, slight variances in color and design can occur.

Going Coastal All Year Round

leslie-rascoe“I am a firm believer that any day at the beach is…well, it’s better than just about anything!

I wish I could bottle the feeling of excitement, waking before dawn with the realization that I’ve made it to my peaceful place. Before the sun even thinks about rising, I bound out the door, headed straight to the sand for a walk and exploration. I’m constantly inspired by nature, but especially by coastal areas.” – Leslie Newsom Rascoe

Over the years I’ve amassed quite a collection of artifacts from beloved beach trips. I keep these objects close to me…so close, in fact, I’ve started decorating around them!

  Going Coastal - 1

You would be hard pressed to find a room in my home without some sort of shell, rock, sea glass or driftwood. I treasure these objects for the memories they recall, but also because they invoke a feeling of organic, light-filled spaces I associate with living on the water.

Going Coastal - 2 Going Coastal - 3 Going Coastal - 4 

We are hours from the coast, yet our home could easily be transported to Nantucket, the South Carolina Lowcountry or Catalina Island. I tend to keep the interior palette white, layering in furniture pieces that complement a more relaxed, coastal feel.

“A home should be a reflection of who you are no matter where you live, so for this beach girl, ‘Going Coastal’ is a way of life!”

A Classic Collection: Our Blue and White Pottery

A Classic Collection: Our Blue and White Pottery | Wisteria

Blue and white is a classic palette we love to work with here at Wisteria (besides purple, of course!). And when this color story is showcased on traditional Chinese pottery, well, we just can’t get enough!

SHAPING HISTORY

The earliest known origins of making blue and white pottery are rooted in Persia many centuries ago. Making its way down the Silk Road, this process was perfected and popularized by Chinese artisans. During the 17th century, these prized pieces became a hot commodity among well-to-do Europeans—shipped extensively to the markets for years to come. The most popular ceramics sent over were hand-painted with scenic designs, a snapshot of the exotic culture and lifestyle of Asian society.

KEEPING THE TRADITION

Depicting traditional Chinese life, among flora and fauna, each piece in our collection is thrown and painted by skilled artisans who practice the very same techniques used by their ancestors over 2000 years ago. Though a tedious and time-consuming process, artisans are able to shape what was once a dull ball of clay into these incredibly beautiful pieces—and we fall in love all over again every time a new piece enters our collection. Whether it be a vase, jar, a lantern, or a pot, our Blue and White Pottery Collection possesses an heirloom quality and delivers timeless style to any setting.

A Tabletop Worthy of Cheers!

It’s the time of year again where we’re eager to entertain. The sun is shining bright, the weather is perfectly warm, and everybody’s feeling refreshed. We know you’re thinking “bring on the backyard barbecues and pool parties!” So, we’ve got a few ideas of how to set the stage for a bright and impactful soiree that’s centered around every get-together’s highlight: your tabletop.

We’re all about a bold palette this season. Set your foundation with a solid tablecloth in your favorite color. Keep in mind, a good tablecloth is a staple for every entertainer so select one that you can imagine living in other areas of your home. Check out our sturdy Burlap Tablecloth that’s available in 6 versatile colors.

Why not throw down an additional layer of interest with a Get Geometric Tablecloth or maybe an Ombre Table Runner? These textiles are sure to catch your guests’ eye!

Now let’s bring in some texture. People typically pay a lot of attention to the color and design of their chargers. But we suggest a neutral option, like these Rattan Chargers, to introduce an organic texture to your tablescape. These chargers are perfect for any casual get-together and versatile enough to live on your everyday dining table.

While we love the idea of timeless white plates for every other occasion, your party deserves something fun and fitting for the season. We’re crazy about these Scallop Plates for so many reasons. For starters, these plates are the creation of our Head Designer, Marlene, who was inspired by a favorite watercolor. She chose blue because, “it works so well in many situations.” We couldn’t agree more! Additionally, these plates are lightweight melamine and dishwasher safe—making them perfect for any entertaining.

Polish off your tabletop with a couple brightly colored bouquets (we love hydrangeas) and maybe even a hurricane or two—and cheers!
