New Arrivals from the Wisteria Catalog

The Wisteria catalog, known for having less expensive versions of many of the stylish pieces we love, is constantly unveiling new stock of cool furnishings and accessories worth snagging for their on-trend looks great prices, which makes it one of my go-to sources when shopping for my own home. Here are a few of my picks from the latest edition and why I love them:

You may recall our editor Heather J. Paper’s post on chic acrylic side tables last month and why she loved their crystal-clear look and awesome utility: providing a spot to set down a drink while taking up little to no visual space. The traditional silhouette of this new 18th-century inspired table is just as fantastic at $699. Antique cage light fixtures are all the rage in new modern design, but if my weekend hunts through vintage stores don’t reward me with the perfect, affordable fixture, I may spring for this one at $129. Just think how pretty this pendant would look with a hand-blown, exposed-filament bulb!

I was really happy to see this new artichoke finial because of how much it reminds me of the cast concrete garden element by designer Ryan Gainey that we included in the Outdoor Living special in our May issue. Remember its pairing with a refined English knot garden also designed by Gainey? While the cast concrete version from Elegant Earth is priced at $82 through Pollen in Atlanta, the metal Wisteria finial is priced at an even more affordable $34! This set of three jewel-topped bottles, at $49, looks strikingly similar to the quad of Anthropologie vases Sales & Editorial Assistant Sejal Bhima posted in her own blog last week. Anthropologie’s Aughra Bottles are priced at $28-$44 each.

Lastly, if you admired the blown glass jars and Asian pool floaters used in Cheryl Womack and Alison Womack Jowers‘ cabana at the 2010 Decorators’ Show House & Gardens, then you’ll be as delighted as I am to snag these similar Glass Fishing Floats at $39 each.

Of course, an original antique or reproduction is always better, but for the frugal decorator willing to cut corners, there are always beautiful objects and furnishings to discover at
