sitting on the Loops of Luxury

24 Jan

Sittin’ in the lap, sittin’ in the lap,
Sittin’ in the lap of luxury, sure feels good to me.
Sittin’ in the lap, sittin’ in the lap,
Sittin’ in the lap of luxury, sure feels good to me. – Louie Louie

Luxe Loop is a yarn-dyed double construction fabric woven with 100% cotton bouclé on the surface and tightly twisted cotton yarns beneath it giving the surface a “nubby” texture. This combination gives it exceptional structure and feel. You’ll love these designer-quality Maine Cottage Luxe fabrics: Loop, Waffle, Wale, Yuri and several Neutrals. Available on our furniture and by-the-yard for your home projects. Imported from Italy through an exclusive arrangement, Luxe fabrics are custom-dyed in richly saturated and neutral Maine Cottage colors alike.

ode to an Artichoke

29 Nov
Artichoke Lamp by Stray Dog Designs at Maine Cottage

Did you know: artichokes grow only along California, Chilean and Mediterranean coasts? And that they are giant thistle buds? Horticulturally, that struck us as a juicy bit of trivia. Anyway, an artichoke is best known as a garden fresh treat. Round and prickly, richly bright green leaves reveal its deeply sweet ripeness. Our friends at Stray Dog Designs created a striking Artichoke Lamp in this unique vegetable’s honor.

Like many things from Stray Dog Designs, the Artichoke Lamp was designed in the USA and is made using recycled materials by artisans in Haiti. A painted paper shade and sparkling glass finial give the lamp added artful appeal. Not to mention great color and fun! To appreciate the generous scale of these table lamps, we’ve included an image (below) from one of our stores. At 32″ high they have presence and personality, especially in a pair. And they look fantastic with colorful Maine Cottage furnishings.
