For the Home – Summer 2018 Highlights

May 2, 2018

Innovations for the Kitchen

Do you enjoy spending hours preparing fine gourmet meals? Or are you more heat it ’n eat it? Either way, you’re sure to find products that’ll improve your life in our Housewares Dept. For example... What will you stash in your Stasher? This plastic-free reusable storage bag is a healthy alternative to plastic bags and containers. Made of food-grade silicone, it can go from freezer to stovetop, microwave, or oven. That’s right—you can cook in it!

Novelty Craft Carriers from NOD hold 6 bottles of beer or soda. Each comes with a bottle opener. Also check out wine bottle bags with either wine charms or a bottle stopper attached and sassy sentiments, like: “I am woman, hear me pour.”

For your summer al fresco dining, see our beautiful new acrylic dinnerware and serveware, including a blue Mediterranean-inspired pattern. Oprah’s favorites: Floral Sketchbook poppy plates and Beatriz Ball’s VIDA Alegria serveware in soft butter, blue & white.

Hydration Station

In our Housewares Dept., you’ll find an amazing array of smart beverageware to keep your drinks hot or cold for far longer than it will take you to drink them. They make staying hydrated easy & fun. Watch the video below to get an idea of the large range of different styles, brands, and colors we have for you to choose from, including S'well, Swig, and Tervis.

Nora Fleming

We're proud to carry Chicagoland's largest selection of Nora Fleming serveware and interchangeable minis! Stop in to see our remodeled Nora Fleming corner, featuring all of Nora’s latest & greatest additions.

Outdoor Living in Our Conservatory

Looking for inspiration for your outdoor living spaces? Stroll through the tranquil displays in our Conservatory to find outdoor benches, bistros, statues, stakes, spinners, and other garden decor. NEW! Colorful indoor/outdoor rugs & mats in 4’x6’ or 5’x8’ sizes. They’re made from recycled plastic, and no worries—they’re also mildew-free. Planters are trending this season, and we have a variety of styles. They’re great for lawn and patio decor.

Be sure to visit the large garden section in the Swedish Days tents (June 19-24): spinners, solar-powered stakes, collapsible planters, watering cans, weathervanes, etc.

Summer Linens and Home Decor

Sometimes all it takes is a small change to give your decor an updated look. Throughout the store, you’ll find wall art, mirrors, chandeliers, lamps, and ceiling fans in enough variety to fit every style. You’ll find an even larger selection of new home lighting options in the Linen Room, including bath & outdoor fixtures. Seasonal linens are an easy way to bring summer into your living spaces.

One new addition we’re particularly excited about is the hanging chair swing & cushion sets you see pictured here. We have it in four different designs; all of them are mildew and fade resistant. Each comes with a tote so you can bring it to the lake house with you.
