Little Things Mean A Lot!

Have you ever wondered how to easily accessorize your home with interesting antique accents that complement any décor? This blog is the first of several that will appear from time to time to highlight Le Barn’s special collection of smaller showcase pieces, which you can spontaneously select and take home with you as you browse their well-maintained inventory.

These quaint boxes can sit on a hall table and serve as a collection place for mail, messages, or keys. This toolbox would also work as a wonderful receptacle for multiple candles, dried flowers or faux fruit (or an artful combination of the three) for display on a dining room table.

Turkish bowls look great on a kitchen table or an island and can be used to hold tomatoes, avocados or lemons. The bowl’s vibrant colors and pattern add cozy warmth to any kitchen.

Use it as a water pitcher or as a part of a colorful tablescape for freshly cut flowers.
