A-door-able Headboard

I love this idea of creating a headboard using a backdrop of vintage doors. We often carry old doors at Harvest (available for sale from our displays). Stop by and see what's in. We may be able to help you recreate this look at home!

Introducing...The Cricket Table

The latest addition to our Old Lumber furniture collection is the Cricket Table. This historical design can be recognized by its characteristic round top over three leg base. Available in custom sizes and a variety of finish options, this table is the perfect bedside accent or armchair perch.
Old Lumber Cricket Table

A little history on this design...
The cricket table was originally introduced during the Jacobean period, (1600-1688). Jacobean furniture inspired many early American styles. Its massive, sturdy characteristics and simple construction methods have been replicated for centuries.

Rain, Rain, Go Away! Come Again Another Day!

This rain just doesn't seem to be letting up. But, don't let it get you down. Sometimes rainy days are the days when we enjoy our homes the most, snuggled up indoors, under cozy blankets, watching the fire crackle and sipping soup. If your home is lacking the creature comforts you crave, stop by Harvest and let us help you create a home you'll love, rain or shine.

Inspiration Board: White Bedroom

Many of my clients are often surprised to learn of the vast resources we have to offer at Harvest. Because of our limited showroom space, we are only able to show a small sampling of the lines we carry. Working one-on-one with clients and listening to what they envision for their home often opens the doors to many more design ideas and available resources.

To give our blog readers a better sense of what we have to offer, I've decided to create a regular post of inspiration boards with room ensembles that showcase the Harvest resources you might not have known about. Aside from a few items here and there, most pieces pictured will be available for order through Harvest.

If you are interested in any specific products or ideas, please don't hesitate to contact me for more information. Thanks for reading, and I hope these boards will inspire you! -Jaye

Old Lumber Showroom in Las Vegas

I recently had the privilege of designing the Las Vegas showroom for our favorite vendor, Old Lumber!

It was so much fun to create unique vignettes to showcase this incredible collection of reclaimed wood furniture. To help tell the story of the Old Lumber collection, we enhanced each vignette with salvaged and vintage goods. Old windows and doors became interior backdrops, while vintage books and rusty, old toolboxes lined the shelves. We made light fixtures from old wine barrel straps and sculptural driftwood, we re-purposed old frames as chalkboard signage, and we softened the whole look with burlap and grain sack pillows atop natural, linen sofas. Many of our traditional "Harvest" signatures could be found throughout the casually elegant space.

We enjoyed a fantastic response to our design and had such a wonderful time sharing this amazing resource with retailers from around the world.

Here are some of my favorite highlights...

I can't wait to integrate these fabulous new looks into the Harvest stores!
