‘It’s a Wonderful Life … In Your Home’

Today we are delighted to reproduce a blog post from one of our retailers in North Carolina, Furnitureland South. As we move further into December, Jillian McCool reminisces about her favourite films and subsequent interior inspirations.

When I saw this apothecary cabinet from Theodore Alexander, I could not help but to think about the movie, It’s A Wonderful Life.

I know that not a holiday season goes by in my household without the film.. Even with my hectic schedule, it is one of my favorites and a tradition I just cannot give up.

This apothecary in veneers of Argentinean walnut was inspired by a 1940s American original (same era as the film!) and features glass paneling in the drop-front cabinets and doors. This piece resonates the true meaning of timeless tradition and would make a beautiful display cabinet in any home.

This Argentinean walnut Apothecary or display cabinet has two tiers of four bevelled edge glass inset drop front cabinets, above four glass panelled cabinet doors below, on a plinth base. It is inspired by a 1940s American original.

A Christmas Story is another movie that is sure to play on repeat this holiday season. One of the more notable scenes from the movie is definitely the scene about the “leg lamp.” While you may not want this in your home … it may still be a good time to consider a new lamp to warm your home this holiday season, and one that you will treasure as much much as the prized “leg lamp” for years to come.

The Philosophical Lamp features an antiqued hardwood and brass body, coupled with a hand-sewn silk shade. The lamp is both captivating and substantial.

The Philosophical Lamp is part of our Castle Bromwich theme and has a hand sewn silk double shade.

This lamp, named Elegy in Green, is another gorgeous accent piece sure to draw attention with its hand painted body and hand sewn silk shade. Theodore Alexander puts detailed attention and care into their collection so it is sure to please.

Elegy in Green has a hand sewn silk shade with a brass and stone inset finial.
