10 Best Holiday Decor Finds, Preview Edition


10 Best Holiday Decor Finds, Preview Edition

November 10, 2015

Like it or not, the holidays are upon us, and while we’re not keen on rushing into December, we do like the idea of being prepared: ordering decorations ahead of time and stashing the boxes for a couple weeks to better ease into the holiday season.

Here’s a preview of some of this year’s decor, edited down to our favorites.

Above: From Finnish design brand, Samuji, the Branch Candle with three branches of white tapers is $30 at The Dreslyn. For more on Samuji, see our post Style Counsel: Finnish Fashion from a Marimekko-Trained Designer.

Above: This year’s “it” holiday string lights? Terrain’s indoor Glass Globe Light Strand is a string of LED bulbs on a fine iron wire; $34 for a 6.9-foot length. A Smokey Globe Light Strand is also available for the same price.

Above: A flock of Handmade Sheep are made from recycled wool and virgin wool fleece; $29 per sheep from Alder & Co.

Above: An annual favorite from March in San Francisco, Handmade Basket Reed Woven Stars blends the tradition of Native American basketry with Scandinavian decor; $27-$32 each, depending on size.

Above: Anthropologie’s Bell & Tassel Garland made of wool, metallic thread, and brass bells reminds us of the decor seen at architect Johanna Molineus‘s house in Notting Hill.

Above: A Two-Piece Laser-Cut Wood Village from Crate & Barrel is $24.95 (more pieces available).

Above: A touch of Scandi from none other than Iittala, whose Oiva Toikka Mediator Dove is appealing enough for year-round decor; $375 from Tiina the Store.

Above: Painted glass for the modernist: a Set of 6 Shiny Opaque Ornaments is $19.95 at CB2.

Above: West Elm’s Felt Ball Wreath is the kind that won’t get sap on your front door. It’s on sale for $39 for the 12-inch size and pairs with the Large Felt Garland at $15 per strand. The wreath reminds us of a favorite holiday DIY, a Wooden Bead Wreath from Sweet Paul.

Above: New stockings for a new season from Schoolhouse Electric: the Holiday Plaid Stocking, the Heather Gray Stocking, and the Buffalo Plaid Stocking are $34 each.
