Based in the Mississippi Delta, John Richard crafts quality furnishings for those who love to antique but haven't got the time.

They're the kind of objects that satisfy the discerning eye — and make a room unforgettable. Group several for maximum effect.
This winter, flank your mantel with a pair of terracotta finials or faceted candlesticks with crystal drops. Down below, cluster vases and cachepots and above it all hang a mirror, like the round rustic-chic design we tracked down from Barreveld. If you don’t have a flue, try one of Eco Smart Fire’s sleek, portable designs. And don't forget, as a final touch add plenty of cashmere throws.
Warm tones, luxurious textures, and classic lines that recall the past: These are the building blocks of a library with Old World style. A good desk should be one of the anchors in the room (some of the most exquisite are by Martha Angus). A stately open bookcase is another. And luxe accessories — woodgrain frames by Eccolo, trays in exotic materials like cobra and python by R & Y Augousti — are essential for finishing this timeless look.
Want an instant room refresh? Start with a new table lamp; you'll be surprised how one can singlehandedly transform the feel and personality of a room.

“In the summer, many of us create clean, open space indoors,” says Gilt Home editorial director, Tom Delavan. “But the onset of fall is the time to re-fill your room and create a nest-like atmosphere.” Warm colors like orange and rust, he notes, “heighten that inviting effect.” To that end, this huge selection, from tabletop items to furniture, is as autumnal as apple pie.
