Fall Into Pier 1

New for Fall... lots of affordable pretty from Pier 1 Imports...

The warm colors of the Round Leaves Rug (above) would welcome the season in a small entry or powder room

The Ikat Wing Chair makes a bold, but not outspoken, statement

Redbuds Tassle Pillow (personally, I would cut those tassles right off and have myself a Redbuds "Applique" Pillow)

Where wouldn't a Sunflower Mirror look great?

Peacock Tufted Dining Chairs would be lovely as host and hostess at the dinner table

Bubbles Green Glass Vases are right on trend

Wouldn't your holiday guests feel extra welcome with a Josette Chair in their very own room?

Antiqued Oval Clock for your wall (16"x16")

A pair of Chryssie Chairs would look so warm and cozy in front of the fireplace

At $2.95 each, you can fill a basket or bowl with Seagrass Balls and get a lot of texture for only a little cash

Stoneware Canisters are filled with character and charm
Vintage Inspired Trays will brighten your day and your decor

I think the whimsical jacquard upholstery on this Ashlyn Dining Chair is so pretty and might be nice at a girly vanity

The Suzani Fringe Pillow is bold and bright and warm

Sanctuary Serving Pieces look great even when they're not working

These Curved Back Dining Chairs in Ivory could help you pull off the hot new Belgian look without breaking your budget


Pier 1 has recently become a surprisingly great source for affordable accents and cost-effective seasonal updates. If you haven't already, give them a look.

I'm partial to the vintage trays and the oval wall clock and the redbuds pillow (without the tassles, of course!).

Which one of these pretties has caught your eye?

Love it all, but the peacock tufted dining chairs are my favorite. Love Pier 1. Hope the rumor that they're closing is not true. I would truly be sad to see them go.

This makes me sad because both of our Pier Ones just closed. I used to go all the time and am not sure what I'm going to do without them!

Wow, I haven't been in a Pier I in ages. I would really love a pair of those peacock chairs! Thanks for the info.

I always love a good snuffle around Pier 1. My only complaint is they don't have a restroom, so my visits are often hasty!!

I'd love a chair like the Josette and yes, the corner of my guest room could probably work very well.

And I'm a huge clock fan - I'd have them everywhere if Beloved Husband would allow it!!

Wow. Haven't been there in so long, but looks like they've gotten with some trends and gotten rid of that same old style (morrocanish?). Too bad I'm living in Europe now!

I love all those tufted chairs that are suddenly everywhere! Pier 1 is so colourful, I love to go in there!

I love the rug in the first photo, the Ikat wing, and that curved back dining chair!
I so hope the rumor of them going out by the end of the year isn't true....I remember Pier 1's of my youth-- all incense and unusual international items! Boy have they evolved!

Struggler said...

Wow, I had no idea they might be in trouble and are closing stores. That's bad news and I'm surprised...

I haven't been into Pier 1 for a long time - I am definitely stoppin in - loving the vintage.
