Accessories for the Home

There are many elements involved that make a home seem truly lived in. Beds, sofas, and other furniture last a long time and aren’t easily exchanged. To make your home welcoming to guests, or make it ready for the next coming season, or to keep your home from feeling stagnant: home accessories are your interior design solution.

Home accessories add personal and current touch to your home. A throw draped over a couch gives it a comfortable, boho feel. A patterned pillow on an armchair breaks up the monotony of a living room. A simple glass vase can be a subtle, elegant element in sunrooms, and rugs protect your feet from cold floors. Home accessories decorate your home with color and shape to make your rooms more individual to you. At Unusual Designs, we sell new, unique home accessories that keep up with your ever-changing life.


Accent pillows are the easiest way to shake up any room. Change them with the seasons, for company, or even just depending on how you’re feeling. Juxtapose a solid pillow with a patterned one, a square pillow with an oddly shaped one, a smooth fabric with a rough or fuzzy one. Don’t feel compelled to have your pillows match exactly - the point of accent pillows is to add a pop of visual interest to your room. Layer a geometric pattern with a floral pattern, and tassel covers with basic ones. Use an even number of pillows to balance out your couch or an odd number for a modern look. There are countless ways to decorate with accent pillows - you can never go wrong!

True to their name, throws are often “thrown” (or artfully arranged to look thrown) over pieces of furniture like beds, sofas, and ottomans. For a more put-together room, fold your throw and drape it straight over your sofa. For a more carefree feel, leave your throw unfolded and drape it over a couch or chair arm. Throws can be used to bring old pieces of furniture back to life or to cozy up dining and outdoor seating areas. Hang a throw like a tapestry as wall art or coiled neatly in a basket as room décor. Like throw pillows, throw blankets are versatile home accessories easy to coordinate with the rest of your room’s décor.

Wall Mirrors and Wall Art

Break up the monotony of solid walls with a wall mirror or wall art. A wall mirror can act as a focal art piece in bedrooms and living rooms or as functional art when placed near the door for last minute touch-ups. Other wall art includes decorative tapestries, canvases, and stickers.

Sculptures, Vases, and Other Decorative Objects

Liven up your home guests with interesting pieces like small stone and metal sculptures. They give rooms emotion with their curves and jutting angles that invite conversation. Artisan glass vases can be art pieces on their own or act as their conventional counterparts when filled with water for plants. Bookends make for elegant pieces at the end of bookshelves while keeping your books straight and in order. Plant stands emphasize the chic organic elements of your room. Decorative objects are your chance to show off your personal and artistic tastes!

Decorative Trays, Plates, and Bowls

Decorate ottomans and tables with color in the form of decorative trays, plates, and bowls. Use them as safe places for keys and other small personal items. Set a tray on your ottoman as a place to safely put glasses and coffee table books and fill a decorative bowl on a side table with small candies. Stand up a plate as its own art piece.  While decorative trays, plates, and bowls aren’t to be used as normal dishes, their beauty serves its own function in the household.
