Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Well, nothing like waiting until the last minute, but on this Thanksgiving Eve, you may be so exhausted from cooking that you haven’t had a moment to put the table together. We’ve been scouring Pinterest to find some of our favorite Thanksgiving tablescape ideas to share with you.

These tall cylinders full of gourds work well with the long narrow table. They’ve also alternated vases with just a bloom or two in each with candlesticks. No time to forage at the grocery store for gourds? Go grab what’s left of the fall leaves off the ground and use those instead.

Clearly, you’re not going to have enough time to go saw down a tree, drill holes and fill them with tea lights. However, you can find a nice branch or two to run down the center of the table.

Yes, we love this rustic table and mix of glassware, but the best and easiest take-away is the thankful jar. All it requires is a jelly jar or mason jar, a tag and some twine or string. The way the kept the arrangements simple by sticking with sprigs of Eucalyptus. Just beware of how sticky your fingers will get when you handle them!

DwellStudio’s founder, Christiane Lemieux set up this table several years ago, but it’s still one of our all-time favorites. It shows the way you can play with those vases you may have tucked all over the house and no flowers are required!

So simple – Pillars, a few greens, cuties and pinecones. Easy-peasy. If you don’t have a mirror, use a simple runner or a few plain placemats butted together.

Even butcher paper can take on a chic placemat look when you pen a few words and lines down the side.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and wish you safe travels!

We have a lot of really good sales going on at Design Public right now and some of them are ending soon.

It’s a great way to get your Christmas shopping rolling ahead of schedule and save money while doing it.

Also, there is always an ever-changing inventory of stock in the Design Public Outlet. These are returns that are discounted for reasons like “opened box” or  the plastic wrap has been opened. In fact, almost every item I’ve purchased here came from the Outlet, because I watch it like a hawk! The outlet does not give you time to dilly-dally around, there is usually only one of each item shown, but if you’re sure you want something, get it while you can, like this Thomas Paul Flax Pine 22″ Pillow in Cocoa. I love that this is business in the front, party in the back (or vice-versa? you decide):

There are a ton of fantastic sales going on at Design Public right now. As we get ready for that dreaded “fall back” day when we’ll be in darkness an hour earlier, it’s time to cheer up the house with the right lighting. We’ve slashed prices on some of our new classic, most popular pieces from modern pendants to funky table lamps, so I thought I’d introduce a few of them to you.

David Trubridge Kina Pendant Lamp

Right now, all David Trubridge is 15% off (through October 31, 2013). This is the David Trubridge Kina Pendant Lamp. I’ve noticed architects and interior designers scooping up this beautiful natural bamboo pendant. The shape was inspired by the structure of sea urchins.

Kartell Bourgie Lamp

Now through October 27, 2013, Kartell is 20% off, including the ever-popular Bourgie Lamp. Now that warm metals are back in style, you may want the bling of gold, but you can also choose chrome-plated, white or black matte. This silhouette is something a modern-day Marie Antoinette would appreciate, like if Sofia Coppola remade her movie again, in present day.

Kartell FL/Y Suspension Lamp

Kartell also makes the FL/Y Suspension Lamp, which comes in a rainbow of bright colors and has become a design staple. The pendant light adds a classic modern shape, bubbly personality and a punch of bold color.

Pablo Tube Top Colored Table Lamp

Now through October 24, 2013, all Pablo is 15% off. Pablo is one of the very first brands we ever carried and it’s been such a joy to see the company take off and see the designs placed in so many gorgeous design magazine spreads. The Pablo Tube Top Table Lamp is one of the mot popular table lamps I’ve noticed in modern and contemporary rooms; it also adds an eclectic touch to more traditional and collected room styles. The photo above just makes me happy, like a roll of LifeSavers.

The Pablo Link Task Lamp

The Pablo Link Task Lamp has a personality that makes me want to give each one it’s own name, each a funky character and will illuminate your desk or your bedtime reading with adjustable style.

So that’s just a teaser of just a few of the great lighting (in addition to many other pieces of furniture and accessories) deals we have going on. October is a great time to adjust your lighting and cozy up for winter, and there won’t be a better time than now to save big. What are you waiting for?

On Sale: Coalesse

It’s the perfect time of year to spend time outside, enjoying the crisp fall air and perhaps enjoying the warmth of an outdoor fireplace or firepit. Next time you’re at the grocery, be sure to scoop up some graham crackers, Hershey bars and marshmallows so you’ll be ready to make some gooey treats.

As we head toward winter, it’s also a great time to scoop up deals on outdoor furniture. Now through October 14th, the unique and sophisticated pieces from Coalesse are 15% off. What I love so much about their lines is that while they can stand up to the elements outside, they also fit right in indoors as well.

Coalesse Emu Heaven Table

For example, the woven metal mesh of the Emu Heaven Table by Jean-Marie Massaud adds gorgeous modern style to a patio, but will also add texture to an eat-in kitchen, works as an occasional table in a living room and can serve as a unique nightstand next to a king-size or California king bed.

The Emu Retrouve High Back Chair has long been a favorite of mine; the first time I saw it in a shop window my heart fluttered. Is it weird that my heart flutters over chairs? I don’t care. Its eclectic wire shape mixes things up and makes it a standout; if everything you have is all straight-lined and modern, you need a few curved elements to create juxtapositions. I nominate Retrouve.

Coalesse Retrouve High Back Chair

By the way, it’s not all about outdoor furniture. While Coalesse has a lot of options for furniture that will stand up to the elements, they are also creating pieces that work for home and office and home office. These pieces make working from home feel nothing like working from a cubicle.

Coalesse Bindu Guest Chair

The Bindu Guest Chair,for example, is a chic and comfortable office chair, but also works wonderfully as a dining chair or as and occasional chair anywhere around the home.

Coalesse Denizen Side Tablet

The Denizen Side Tablet can tuck right in next to a sofa or chair and then swing across when you want some couch comfort while working on your laptop. It’s also perfect for a martini and almonds too.
