September 2019

This month we’re going to have fun with some must-haves in accessories and furniture that I’m excited to share with you.

I selected these pieces because they are bold, stand-alone, or, terrific accents. I also chose them because they are all available right now at retail. So yes, you can purchase them yourself, and they’re Lauren Jacobsen Design approved!  

Bone Burst Chest-Cerused Oak

Bone Burst Chest in Cerused oak from William D. Scott company

William D. Scott

This chest is by Emporium Home and sold at William D. Scott.  The introduction of a multi-drawered chest is an excellent addition to a room.  This one has a hand-pieced bone inlay and is made of solid wood that has a Cerused Oak finish (a process of rubbing a contrasting color into the pores of the wood to highlight the patterns of the wood grain), and solid brass hardware. 

Cheetah Pom Pom Pillow

Cheetah Pom Pom pillow from Furbish

Furbish Studio

Pillows!  We can always have fun with pillows.  So easy to replace and mix, so delightful in a room.  Having a fondness for felines, big and small, this one, a simple illustration, and somewhat reminiscent of a hieroglyph, is more graphic.  Furbish offers this little gem made of New Zealand wool yarn and cotton velvet back; this one would be handy to tuck under the neck while reading. 

Kasuri Woven Wool Rug by Mark D. Sikes

Kasuri wool rug designed by Mark Sikes

Furbish Studio

That moment when you walk into a room that has a featured throw rug can be a powerful thing.  I love adding rugs to a room for many reasons.  In larger rooms, they can be the piece that grounds all the furniture together, such as couches, chairs, and coffee tables. In a smaller area, they can create a beautiful vignette.  Mark D. Sikes designed this rug and is made by rug maker, Annie Selke.  Inspired by an antique  Kasuri indigo weaving, this wool jacquard rug is reversible.

Hampton Ottoman, Deer Hide

Hampton Ottoman in faux deer hyde at One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane offers this ottoman.  I like the x-shaped base and the nailheads on this piece. Not to mention the faux fur hide for texture and pattern.

“Summer Swim” by T. S. Harris

“Summer Swim” painting by T.S. Harris

T. S. Harris

This artist caught my eye.  The solitude at that moment is so peaceful, and the color palette is fantastic. The artist, T. S. Harris, was raised by two professional artists and currently lives and works in San Luis Obispo.  Local art is best when discovered.

Laredo Dining Table

Laredo Dining Table from One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane

This dining table from One Kings Lane is such a clean design.  It has a bronze metal frame and a quartz top.  It is very chic and perfect for a small space.  Round tables are usually my choice for small dining rooms

Devonshire Mirror

Devonshire mirrow by Chelsea House


Talk about a statement piece. The Devonshire mirror is by Chelsea House Inc. and is a very bright design. It is made of composite materials with antique gold details.  It would look good in a bath, bedroom, or entry.

Manor Born Madcap Cottage Wallpaper

York Wallcoverings’ Manor Born Sure Strip Wallpaper

York Wallcoverings

I love this wallpaper.  “Madcap Cottage,” by York Wallcoverings, is made of pressed linen paper that is washable, and pre-pasted — such a whimsical design, and great for a spare bedroom. 

Abstract Indigo Vases

Limited edition abstract indigo vases from West Elm

West  Elm

I love the blue and white motif.  These are limited edition vases from West Elm.  They are handcrafted and hand-painted by artisans in Thailand.  The modern textures and styles bring a gorgeous look to these classically shaped pieces.  They are watertight, numbered, and sold individually. 

Kenton 5pc Place Setting in Gold

Crate & Barrel

There is something about gold flatware that creates an elegant table setting.  These have a dual finish that contrasts matte handles with polished head and blades.  So sophisticated.  They are a Crate & Barrel Exclusive, and yes, they also come in silver and black.

Rider Pendant by Jonathan Adler

Rider Pendant by Jonathan Adler


Jonathan Adler does it again.  This 4-light pendant design, created for Perigold, has horse finials, brass medallions, and turreted edges.  The gold is hand-painted, and it has powder-coated brass.  A stately piece, and is one that would be beautiful in a foyer.  I think it’s terrific.
I hope you had as much fun looking at these treasures as I did sharing them with you.  Remember, the choice of a great accent can make a change that can freshen up a room dramatically.  If you need more help with your home design, please don’t hesitate to call. We will make your whole house amazing.
