A Few Of My Favorite Things: Canvas Home Accessories

As we did not do Thanksgiving at home, I am looking forward to entertaining friends at Church Street during the coming weeks. Canvas has been one of my favorite resources for tableware and home accessories since I saw their booth at the New York gift show a year ago, and here are a few things available in their online shop that I currently have my eye on for the season ahead.

The matte-glazed porcelain Gold Pebble Dishes, elegant small vessels for pre-dinner nibbles.


Hand-hewn Holey Boards, cutting boards good-looking enough to double as cheese plates or serving pieces.


Made in Lithuania where traditional flax growing and linen production methods are thriving, Canvas's 100% linen Napkins and Placemats are available in neutrals and jewel tones - I would mix them.


Shimmering Syrian Glass Ornaments are mouth blown using recycled glass and look just as beautiful on the tree as they do grouped in a centerpiece.


The chic Polished Aluminum Tray organizes bar-tending supplies in style whether one is shaking or stirring.


A versatile shape, the Soto Straight Stemmed Goblet can be used to serve wine, beer or the holiday punch I like to make.



Hand-carved, soft black Soapstone Bowls. Included here because this is what I want for Christmas in case anyone bumps in Mr. H and can casually mention it.


The hand dyed linen Dog Bed with Running Stitch, a dog bed I wouldn't feel like I had to stash in the garage when we have guests.

  2. Phyllis, this was incredible! I want and NEED everything you just posted about! I cooked all of our dinner tonight in my La Chamba cookware that I got LAST Christmas but now I need these black soapstone bowls to go with it! So beautiful! What a fun and great post with lots of wonderful ideas! You always inspire me and I so appreciate that!

  5. What beautiful stuff!! I have a friend who imports Lithuanian linen into South Africa and it is the most exquisite linen I have ever seen. I also love the shape of those goblets, and, as you say, so versatile. I think I need to hunt some of those down. Happy entertaining! x Sharon

  6. Very nice!! I'm off to check out the dog beds. They look like just what my two pooches need. Plus they would be a respite for my poor eyes from all the usual doggie stuff around here. :)

    Thanks for featuring this!

  9. Phyllis,
    So many pretty things and I love to entertain year round, the napkins will have to be added to my list. The cutting boards are so simple and yet, the way the edges are cut, so unique.

    I wasn't familiar with that company. They have beautiful things! Thanks for the introduction. Beau does need a new bed...the question is...could he keep it clean enough that we could keep it out in the open!!

  30. Hi Phyllis, I came by to tell you Happy 16th for your daughter. Wow, where does the time go??! I remember being 16 myself, like it was yesterday. haha. I am sure you do too. I hope she has a wonderful birthday and yes, when there is an early December birthday, it is nice for them to wait until after to start with Christmas. Can you imagine those poor souls born on Dec.25?

    I just noticed your Christian Louboutin quote below this post. Love that. Words to decorate by, for sure.

    Talk later,
    xo Terri
