I know I’m guaranteed some boho home décor beauty when the seasons start to change and Anthropologie rolls out its new collection. Take it from me, this year’s spring home-decor offerings are a breath of boho fresh air.
I also know the door’s open in this photo, but let’s stay inside a bit and look around. After all, that’s what a lookbook’s for, and this one will have you ogling, drooling and spending before you know what’s hit you.
Comfort for living
I can’t begin to identify every new piece in each photo, but I’ll try to hit the highlights.
My absolute fave in this photo is that wild and crazy chair—the Medina-Printed Rivona Chair. The Medina print reappears in other new pieces. The inspiration for the fabric is Moroccan, but the chair is all midcentury modern. Love those legs!
Told you you’d see it reinterpreted on other pieces. Meet the Medina-Printed Tassa Sectional. It’s low-slung and pillowy, and if you fall asleep on it you’re liable to wake up in One Thousand and One Nights. Scheherazade never had it sooooooo good.
Here’s another view of the Tassa, paired up with the equally transporting Moroccan Wedding Ottoman. It functions as a coffee-table ottoman OR a bench for extra seating. I’m just wondering why it took someone so long to turn the ubiquitous Moroccan wedding blanket into multifunctional furniture.
Love those slender golden legs! I think I have legs on the brain, if that’s anatomically possible…??
Here are some other beauties that caught my eye (clockwise from top left):
- The Floret Occasional Chair (you caught a glimpse of it in purple earlier but it also comes in green) features cotton velvet upholstery on a rosewood frame. What more could you ask for?
- The Moussem Ceramic Stool, designed by Tracy Boyd, made of glazed white clay. It wants to cuddle up to a chair in my living room, but it would also work on a patio.
- The Zaylie Chair is inspired by Suzani applique and embroidery and sports embellishment all the way around, so be sure to place it where it can be viewed from a variety of angles.
- The Kezia Occasional Chair is upholstered in your choice of three printed velvets. ‘Nuf said, right?
- The Tanja Trunk makes a terrific coffee table or end-of-bed accent with its natural wood, incised eight-point stars and antique-iron accents.
- This collection of Sketched Safari Chairs, by fashion designer Edward Hall, is the perfect anchor for any global-inspired home. So many shapes, sizes, animal prints and colors! Begin your safari hanging out with the elephants on the Purple Holloway Chair and the Canary-colored Tillie, then run with the big cats in the Indigo Bixby and the bright Orange Tillie. The collection also includes a flamingo-printed chair, as well as elephant wallpaper and a tiger lampshade, but I’ll let you hunt those down on your own.
Dining with pleasure
Nothing tells a sweeter story, gathered ‘round a table, than Anthro’s Folkthread Chairs, reinterpreted this season in recycled silk in three colors to mix and match. I’m also in love with the plushy Kinza Rug beneath. It’s shown in ivory but also comes in a black-and-white version.
Dreamy boho bedrooms
The Premium Leather Rhys Bed comes in 13 colors and four sizes. Here it’s dressed in one of my favorite new duvet sets, the Kessabine, shown in slate but also available in orange. I love the embroidery, pompons and fringe against soft cotton, don’t you?
The striking Geo Brass Inlay bedroom furniture collection includes this platform bed with massive headboard in tropical hardwood, inlaid with brass, and the diminutive nightstand shown. There’s also a three-drawer chest of drawers to complete the sweet suite.
The Prana Bedroom Collection showcases the natural beauty of multi-hued, live-edge oak and includes the bed, nightstand and six-drawer chest shown. And there’s that Moroccan Wedding Ottoman again, this time at the bed’s foot. All items are sold separately.
If this rooms isn’t glamorous boho—glambo—I’ll eat my pompons. The Velvet Ainesworth Bed comes in 18 colors and two sizes, each and every one fit for a princess, a diva, a super-model, or glamorous, boho you. The Velvet Edilyn Bench comes in all the same colors so you can have a custom match as well as a comfy seat to take your shoes on and off.
Some of my favorite new Anthro bedding includes (clockwise from top left) :
- The Kerry Cassill Persica Quilt and shams, which call to mind lovely, gently worn bedding you might find in the Paris Flea Market. Here it’s paired with the Lulie Wallace Cascabel Sheet Set. I can almost smell peaches, can’t you?
- The Woven Sunset Duvet and shams is by LA’s All Roads Design and features standard, king and euro sham options. I love its happy pinks, and, of course, I adore anything that comes out of the All Roads’ workshop.
- I don’t often point out cute kid’s stuff (unless I want it for my adult self!), but the Wilderness Map collection of toddler and infant bedding is an exception. It’s perfect for your little cowboy or trailblazer or bronc-buster. Check out the buffalo! I bet there’s an antelope in there somewhere too.
- Ditto for the Cat Collective collection. Wish I had a young child so I could decorate with that, right down to the cute little bereted cat pillow. Turn him over and check out his stuffed tail!
Weave me some happiness
Nobody does textiles better than Anthropologie, and they’ve really outdone themselves this spring. There’s a vast array of new colorful throws, rugs and pillows….
…as well as designs in black, white and other neutrals. I just adore the detail and the workmanship in these pieces. I could look all day and touch all night if they’d only lock me in the store! (I keep trying!)
My favorite rugs will probably be sold out by the time this post appears. From left to right, my penultimate picks include the very boho Versify Rug with its all-over tassels, the William Morris-inspired Wyla Rug done in crewel embroidery, and the Embroidered Tiger Rug, available in either orange or teal.
Anthropologie’s unique, handcrafted rugs do often sell out quickly, particularly in the smaller, less pricier sizes. If, like me, you have wall-to-wall carpet and no good space for an area rug (and your budget doesn’t allow a bigger size) get the one you like in a 3-by-5 and hang it on the wall as art. But get it quick, before it’s gone, K?
I’m really into the look of a handcrafted throw at the foot of my bed since I redid my bedding with one of Anthropologie’s throws. But now they have plenty of new choices for me to drool over. Clockwise from top left, meet my spring collection picks:
- The Tufted Desert Throw, the latest from All Roads Design, which simply SINGS summer sunset.
- The Centrale Throw Blanket, which I simply MUST have for my living room.
- The Woven Poms Throw in mind-bending boho coral.
- The Textured Indira Throw in a cadre of neutrals.
- The rug-like Aldalora Throw in either neutral or blue.
- The Tufted Yoursa Throw with its sweet patchwork of soft stripes, outlined in poms.
And I could never forget throw pillows, especially these, with lots and lots of fringe, poms, tassels and embroidery. From left to right, shop the Marisol collection (which includes the 30-by-30-inch floor pillow shown at bottom), the Tufted Leyland collection, and the Tufted Yoursa collection.
So many textiles, so little time!!
Delicious décor to feed your (my) decorating habit
My storage picks, clockwise from top left, include:
- The Eyelash-Fringed Catchall Basket, handcrafted by women in Rwanda,
- Ditto for the Lidded Tassel Basket, in white.
- The Cassatt Woven Vessel, a delightful mix of glazed stoneware, wool roving, and manila and cotton rope, designed by mixed media artist Karen Gayle Tinney.
- Playtime Canvas Bins, which are just too cute in my book to limit to the kids. (I want that sweet alpaca one for my office.)
- The Cat Study Hook in orange, designed by Brooklyn-based Leah Goren.
- The Tasseled Pera Baskets, which come in in three colors and shapes (my favorite, a gorgeous gold, is not shown).
Fiber wallhangings have been making a big comeback from the 1960s and 70s, and Anthro adds to its collection each season. But when each style’s gone, it’s gone. Here are, left to right, newbies Ojai Fringed Wall Art in your choice of two motifs, the statement-making Macrame Woven Wall Art, and Salinas Fringed Wall Art in your choice of three motifs.
What would any Anthropologie catalog be without unique pottery? Clockwise from top left, meet my new best friends, Wild Alpaca Pots, Gold Accent Dessert Plates (hang them on the wall as art!), Arletta Coasters, and Simea Mugs.
Last but not least are two more woven wonders: the Tulum Hammock, which is embroidered but reminds me of mud cloth, and the Beadwork Hammock, designed by LA artist, sculpture and jewelry designer Julie Rofman to emulate the look of her intricate beadwork.
Here are some close-ups of each hammock. Can you guess the missing detail?
If you guessed me (or you!) lounging away a sultry summer afternoon therein, you’re on the winning track! Just 17 more days until spring, so summer can’t be far behind.
