Hurricane Vase: Must Have Fall Accessory

Lois Butler - Saturday, September 27, 2014
Chances are you might already have this accessory for its ease to fit into just about any setting. But if not, a simple way to bring this fall’s design trends into your home is with hurricane vases – big, small and in between.

Hurricanes are candle holders with a glass surround designed to protect the flame from breezes. They add height to a centrepiece or vignette and the glass provides a shiny textural element.  Add a candle and you have a comforting warm glow. 

But above all, hurricane lamps are versatile.  Fill them with pebbles, shells, sand, nuts, leaves, pinecones, cranberries or whatever reflects your decor.  A candle, whether flameless or traditional, is the finishing touch. 

There are wonderful shapes, sizes, and styles.

Here are a few styles beyond the footed design.


This look is created with two hurricane chimneys, beautiful pillar candles, nuts, leaves and twine. It's a great neutral look for fall. 


Cylinder and square shapes can be added to the mix and repetition makes more of a statement.



Create symmetry by placing tall prominent hurricanes in a field of white pumpkins, gourds, and pillar candles.  Complete the look with a burlap, linen, or faux fur runner and neutral serviettes tied with twine.

Use one large hurricane and it automatically becomes  a focal point.  You don't have to limit yourself to candles, whatever you place in a large hurricane will become the centre of attention.


Enjoy the change of seasons as you create an ever changing vignette with the elegant hurricane lamp.     

Autumn Arrives

Lois Butler - Saturday, September 20, 2014

These perfect pumpkins are just waiting to be harvested.  I thought I would share this photo, taken by my sister-in-law Heather, on the west coast of Newfoundland.  It really put me in the mood for fall.  The seasons move along even if you are reluctant to let the last one go. 

For some outdoor fall decorating ideas, visit our latest post at Get Inspired and there are some great vintage styled candlesticks at What's New.  There are lots of delicious fall colours to enjoy everywhere.

Here is a taste of our new line of autumn napkins.

Ottoman to Coffee Table

Lois Butler - Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Many clients have asked for large trays that make their ottomans and footstools do double duty as coffee tables and side tables.  We listened and have severals sizes and colours on the way.  Sturdy, stylish, and sizeable, these wood and aluminium trays will fit the bill.  

There are two smaller sizes available in some of the finishes, so check our catalogues and we will keep you posted.  The larger sizes are 20 x 20 and 18 x 24.  Colours: brown, grey, stone.
