Fresh for Spring: New Arrivals are Here

We’re feeling Spring in a big way… pops of pink, playful florals, warm neutrals, yep Spring is around the corner and ready to make itself at home.  It’s the perfect time of year to infuse a little freshness into your home and with our upcoming Spring Décor Sale you’ve got the perfect excuse to shop our newest arrivals.

We’re taking 15% off furniture, rugs, lighting, art & mirrors, pillows, throws, and florals March 5th – 9th, plus we’ve got some incredible artisan events while you shop. Here’s a sneak-peek at some of the fresh home accents that are making a statement for Spring:

Picture Perfect

One of our favorite new trends in wall-art has arrived.  Textured, hand-woven textiles beautifully framed to create original pieces of art that are dimensional, detailed, and different. Each piece is thoughtfully crafted and all assembled by hand.

For a clean, contemporary farmhouse look, you’ll love our collection of soft-nosed palominos, regal stags, angora goats, fury Icelandic ponies, and more loveable little creatures. Available in statement sizes or smaller pieces to mix and match, this collection will add a relaxed vibe to any space.

Plus, bold geometric collections with a mid-century vibe, the ancient technique of mud-painting applied to contemporary imagery, and more fascinating plays on texture, pattern, and monochromatic color.  All artfully framed and ready to show your walls some love.

A Touch of Texture

The art of texture is taking center-stage in our newest collection of textiles.  Rich materials and handwoven designs are thoughtfully combined to add the perfect finishing touch to your space.  From textured and tonal throw-pillows to accent your sofa or bed to hand-hooked rugs that will anchor any room. Our latest collection of vintage vinyl floor cloths has also arrived in rich colors and bold patterns. These gems are spill-proof, slip-proof, and will make a statement in any room.

Take it Outside

With the onset of Spring, we’re ready to embrace that artfully relaxed, outdoor entertaining vibe. To pull it all together, we’ve stocked-up on effortless entertaining essentials.  Our newest dinnerware pattern, Pacifica, has a modern, matte finish, perfect for a casual weekend gathering or everyday use.  These newcomers are available in 4 easy to mix colors; rose pink, vanilla bean, artichoke green, and seed grey.  For a kid-friendly option or something to take to the pool or cookout, our fresh new arrivals in fruity and floral melamine patterns have summer written all over them.  Top it all off with our gorgeous new colored glass barware, festive, fun, and sure to raise those happy hour spirits.

Special Events

We are thrilled to showcase three trunk-shows during our Spring Décor Sale. We will be celebrating with fabulous giveaways, gifts-with-purchase, and 15% off of each trunk show collection.

  • Thursday, March 5th, meet Pam Vincent of Maple Leaf at Home. Inspired by a love of entertaining and spending time with family and friends, Maple Leaf serving boards make a cherished personalized gift for all of life’s celebrations.
  • Friday, March 6th, Emme Siegall of Michael Aram will showcase Aram’s beautiful collection of handcrafted designs. A celebration of nature and ancient craftsmanship, these pieces are as much fine art as functional serving pieces.

Vietri: From Italy with Love

A celebration of all that is irresistibly Italian, Vietri embodies a love of life, family, and tradition through handcrafted, Italian artisan tableware. Preserving the history and craft of Italian artisans, Vietri brings a world of casual sophistication to your table. Made from the soil of the Italian countryside by artisans who know and love their craft…Vietri is designed to savor those moments that bring joy to our lives.

Their story starts in 1983, when sisters, Susan and Frances Gravely, traveled with their mother, Lee, to the Amalfi coast of Italy. The three women found themselves captivated by their hotel’s colorful, handcrafted dinnerware and, after meetings with the artisans who created it, returned home with suitcases full of ‘mix and match’ pieces. Stateside, friends and family fell in love with these unique designs and the Gravely’s recognized the treasures they had found and decided to import this iconic Italian dinnerware to the US.

Truly a handcrafted product, the authentic and imperfect charm is felt in every unique piece. Today, Vietri has become the largest importer of handcrafted Italian tableware and home décor products and has been an essential component of Homefest’s dinnerware offering since 1994.

We are thrilled to celebrate this tradition of Italian craftsmanship and beauty with our annual artisan signing event. Please join us Saturday, November 3rd from noon until 4:00 PM when we welcome Italian ceramic artisan Stefano Barbieri, creator of Vietri’s Lastra Holiday collection. Stefano will be available to meet with customers and inscribe (in English or Italian) your purchases*. An inscribed Vietri piece makes a wonderful wedding, anniversary or holiday gift.

We’ll be celebrating in true Italian style with food, beverage, and friends. The Vietri Pre-Sale begins October 15th and runs through November 5th.  Please take 15% off of all of your Vietri dinnerware purchases during the two-week pre-sale** leading up to our signing event.

*Signed merchandise available in-store only

**Vietri pre-sale available in-store and online

Jan Barboglio Visits Homefest

Wrapped in the mysticism, history, romance and the spirituality of old Mexico, the Jan Barboglio collection has been a cornerstone of the decorative accessories and table-top offering at Homefest from the day Jan released her first collection.  To say we are big fans of her beautiful designs goes beyond understatement.

Jan’s artisanry found its roots in north-central Mexico where she spent her childhood.  After many years designing clothes with her sister Christina, Jan turned to sculpting decorative accessories, furniture and serving pieces for entertaining at home.  Embellished with crosses and crowns, scrolls, guardian angels and symbolic bleeding hearts, Jan’s collection is well-known for bringing the spirituality of old Mexico and the casual sophistication of Western living to home décor.
