The fall collections have hit our favorite retailers! This summer we gave you an autumn preview of the new items that were starting to trickle in, and we recently covered fall trends, from marbleized patterns to the use of vivid colors. Today we zone in on 12 unforgettable fall decor items that have caught our eye. Part of what we love about fall 2013 is the way retailers have resisted the old and ushered in the new.
Sure, we all love traditional fall colors such as gold, rust and brown. But sometimes a new season is about a fresh start, including a departure from the tried and true. After all, nothing is fresher than a new batch of decor in gorgeous tones, from the brightest to the richest. Check out today’s featured finds–they come in all shapes and sizes! Then tell us about your favorites at the end of the post…
New Furniture Finds
Let’s start with furniture! The mustard color of this Cody Side Chair from Crate & Barrel can’t help but scream vintage, and the simple lines of the piece keep things classic and elegant. Plus, you’ve gotta love that padded seat!
Inspired by Chinese lacquer tables, the Fretwork Console from West Elm adds a modern twist to a traditional design. A weathered oak finish creates dimension, giving the piece a wonderfully worn look. Use this item as an entry table, a sofa table, a console, or a dining room buffet…

New Lighting Decor
Equally enticing this season has been a range of new lighting options. How stunning is this Lubna Chowdhary Tiled Table Lamp in Cracked Teal from West Elm?! Named for the British designer who put her stamp on this piece, the lamp features tiles that are hand-painted with a reactive glaze, creating a vintage look that’s enhanced by a natural linen shade:
Ornate lamp bases are in! The geometric detail continues with the Emery Laurel Table Lamp from Crate & Barrel, complete with a faceted ceramic base finished with a green glaze. Are we sensing a trend here? Once again we see the magic of an off-white linen shade…

From lamps to bathroom lighting… Anyone else noticing how many of 2013′s fall finds add a bit of glamour to the interiors they inhabit? Yet rather than being formal and stuffy, the elegance veers into other directions that bring it back down to earth. For example, there’s something a bit industrial about this Mercer Vanity Panel from Pottery Barn, thanks to four exposed bulbs and a polished nickel frame:
