Fall is here, which means the air is getting crisper, the leaves are changing colors, and we’re bundling up for that cool sweater weather. Everyone is already unpacking their chunky blankets and queuing Netflix’s Yule Logs in the background. To dive fully into the cozy spirit, we’re bringing fall into your living room (or any spaces you love to lounge in) with these modern autumnal home decor finds.
A pumpkin patch (of sorts) in your living room
Let’s put a twist into your throw pillows. This sustainably crafted cotton throw pillow is made of recycled materials by the Ohio-based YaYa & Co. From their funky pumpkin-colored squiggle pillows to the comfy organic knit throws, YaYa & Co. offers a unique collection of goods made from 100% natural materials like organic linen.
With Yaya & Co., you’ll get heirloom quality pieces that give back; the company plants a tree in the Amazon rainforest with every purchase and invests in underserved communities (like in Punjab, India) through training and employment.
Meant for cozy snuggles
Slow down and snuggle up to binge-watch the latest season of your favorite show with this cozy throw blanket by Manifatura. Its reversible terracotta pattern captures the shades of autumn with natural dyes and it gets its extra soft texture from extra fine merino wool.
Manifatura was founded by two lifelong friends, Başak & Serdar, whose work is guided by their appreciation for lasting craftsmanship and their enduring love for the planet.
Smells like autumn breeze
Autumn is a nostalgic treat to the senses, especially when it comes in the neat (mess-free) form of a scented candle. In Freedom Studios’ case, they’ve managed to bottle fall into a candle that smells like all the best things: Spiced Apple, Cedar Leaf, Pine and Earthy Musk.
Freedom Studios’ candles and bath products are made by survivors of human trafficking. Founders Penny Klinedinst, Beth Gammel, and Christin Majerus sought to create meaningful employment for survivors and empower them financially by creating bath and body products for women by women.
A special place for treats
Trick or treat! There’s no better place for all your candy bars than these beautiful, hand-thrown ceramic bowls from LoQ. Not only do they fit right in with a fall-inspired space, but they’re also versatile vessels that can be used year-round for food or special objects.
Designed by ceramicist Perla Valtierra, these bowls are made by hand in Guanajuato, Mexico using local production techniques and food-safe materials.
Cottagecore dreams come to life
Add some rustic charm to your home with ethically sourced local materials and artisan-made creations from LIKHÂ. Their artisans are based in the Philippines and use traditional weaving techniques and modern aesthetics to create beautiful sustainable products. Fun fact: Likha means “create” in Filipino!
The brand’s pieces, like these rattan cylinder baskets, vibrant hemp baskets, and other handcrafted creations, are made from native materials that fit seamlessly within a cottagecore aesthetic, great for achieving that cozy look.
Bring out the magic this witchy season
Halloween is just around the corner and we can already feel the magic. Bring in some fantastical decor without announcing to the world that you love all things witchy. We’re head over heels for these magical circle coasters by Dispel Dice.
The pack comes with four coasters made of durable vegan leather featuring elemental, arcane designs. You’ll be worry-free from any damage to your table from stains, moisture, or heat.
Time travel back to the Viking age
Who doesn’t love a Nordic aesthetic? If the rising trend of Nordic-style home decor is anything to go by, then it seems like Vikings are having their moment—and we have a feeling that the founder of Norse Tradesman, Neil G, would agree.
Since his early childhood, Neil has had a deep love for fantasy and Viking history. This resulted in the creation of Norse Tradesman, a brand that offers Nordic-inspired goods honed by craftsmen using traditional Scandinavian techniques to replicate authentic goods from medieval Norse times.
Cozy lighting with a modern twist
Mood lighting makes all the difference in a space, and this portable light by Lumio is sure to make things cozy wherever it’s placed. Its unexpected design transforms from a book into a sculptural light source that emits a warm but bright glow.
Lumio began in founder Max Gunawan’s tiny San Francisco workshop and has since gathered over 10 design awards for their joyful yet functional creations.
A welcome knot for the muscles
Have you ever seen a stool that looks this cozy? I think Knot. This comfortable stool by Knot Studios comes in an array of colors, but this velvety copper hue captures the warm colors of the autumn leaves best.
Knot Studios specializes in modern homeware, making unique and comfortable pieces using their signature knot-tying technique. Plus, all of their wooden elements are handmade. Established in 2013 by their founder Neta Tesler in Tel Aviv, Knot Studios takes design inspiration from Mediterranean coastal community and city life.
Finally, the pumpkins
We’re cheeky enough to be on the nose with this one, because no fall-inspired space is complete without pumpkin decor. One should look no further than Nivas, who were featured in American Farmhouse Style and Apartment Therapy for their fall and Thanksgiving-inspired creations.
Nivas' pieces are handcrafted by Nepali women who are trained in the traditional techniques of embroidery, stitching, knitting, and felting. Nivas sources materials from local farms and only uses natural materials for low-impact production.
