Basic Necessities

Do you have what you need in your home? Maybe you just moved, maybe you are cleaning things out and need to re-new your collection or maybe you just have yet to get some basic items to make your house a home! Whatever the case, we have you covered.

Sometimes it’s helpful to take a second to think what you have and what you need. It’s best to keep things simple and clean, while also covering your bases for commonly used items.

It’s winter, it’s cold and you are using an old weathered blanket – get a new throw! Out with the old and in with the new. There’s nothing like a new soft throw to make you warm and cozy. Because Alpaca is a hollow fiber, it is actually warmer than wool- which has air pockets. It’s also almost completely waterproof and liquid just wicks off. Awesome quality and longevity!

Paper napkins are disposable but expensive if that’s all you use. For every day use, cloth napkins are a much better option! These napkins from Bodrum and Bllom & Give are colorful and beautiful! Some have matching table cloths, placemats and runners.

On the same line of thought is placemats- placemats (especially acrylic coated) are such an easy alternative to cleaning your tablecloth after each meal. Not only do they look classy, but they protect your table from water marks, stains and heat damage. These Le’ Jacquard Francais tablecloths are acrylic coated and come in so many different colors and patterns.

Blank walls are lame and local art is in. These days, everyone encourages shopping local and we are all over it! A piece of art really gives a focal point for any room and ties colors together. This is something that may have been on your list of things to do for a while now, but there’s just no time to search around for the right piece. The West Seattle Art Walk happens every second Thursday of each month and local artists are featured at shops on California Ave. CAPERS hosts a new artist each month and it is a great way to find local art without having to do an extensive search because we do it for you!

What pulls a room together? A rug! Rugs protect your hard wood and are colorful and cozy. It’s so much nicer to walk on a rug than on the cold, hard wood and these Dash and Albert rugs (currently 30% off) are the perfect pop to any room.

There are a few items like these that just get swept under the rug and forgotten. We have all of your essentials and are happy to help you find the perfect pairings. We also have gifts of all kinds, even for the person who is impossible to shop for! We have a friendly group of employees that are excited to help you find the perfect gift!
