A few weeks ago, I read a post from Atlantic Pacific on how to wear a chunky knit fisherman sweater and it inspired me to look for ways to incorporate knitwear into my home with small touches.
Perhaps the easiest seasonal knitwear home item is the knitted throw. I found one for just $40 from JCPenney, and it comes in several colors. Best of all, it’s made from cotton so you can keep using it even during the warmer months. If you want to be really daring, you can purchase this throw in the deep burgundy and add Fall’s hottest color, Oxblood, into your home.
Another easy and inexpensive way to incorporate knitwear into your home is with a pillow cover, such as this one from West Elm. Each one retails for $39 and accommodates a 20″ square pillow that is sold separately.
Poofs are popping up everywhere these days and why knot get one in a knit ? This graphite knit poof from CB2 is only $89 and can be a comfy foot rest or a place to sit in a kids room.
Another fun, easy and inexpensive way to add a little knitted whimsy to your home (or to a friends) is with these fun knitted vase cozies, from Melanie Porter.
If you are ready to be more daring and committed to knitted furniture, you can incorporate this knitted bench from Claire O’Brien into your home.
Or this knit chair from Melanie Porter which is made of 100% merino wool.
Here are a few pretty inspiration shots of homes styled with knitted objects. Now go get cozy and leave a comment to let me know what you think of a sweater chair!
