Make a statement with a Persian rug, an artful clock and a ceramic and wood coffee table
By Holly Cowart
Built in collaboration with ceramicist Eliana Bernard, this wood coffee table is made from scratch by local furniture maker and vintage virtuoso Allie Launius. “Eliana’s eye-popping ceramic designs are one of a kind and fit in perfectly with my ‘statement piece’ philosophy,” she says.
Articulture is a charming South Austin boutique filled with even more enticing décor. Normally known for bringing interiors to life with their plant-based creations, these hand-painted skulls take Western vibes to the next level and are sure to stand out.

A perfect accent to any coffee table and a valuable source for modern design inspiration, this stunning body of work from author iO Tillett Wright and photographer Casey Dunn shines a light on the exquisite details of the world’s most enchanting desert homes (including a Marfa masterpiece).
“Matr Boomie was created to be a leading fair trade brand and innovator in the ethical and sustainable space,” says founder Manish Gupta. Masterfully handwoven by artisans in Bangladesh, these sturdy nesting baskets help contain the clutter while adding a playful pop of color.
Add warmth to your space with this pendant light, handcrafted from white stoneware and finished with chalk paint by talented ceramicist Megan Leihgeber of Maya Blu. Subtle yet refined, these shades will effortlessly blend with a variety of décor styles.
Your personal space should be something that inspires you, and the right piece of art can do just the trick. Specializing in mixed media, oil and acrylic paintings, artist Arielle Austin offers original works, limited-edition prints and home décor through Society6. “In allowing
myself to be present in the process of creating,” she says, “my hope is that others would be courageous enough to graciously do the same in their life—whatever that may look like.”
Plant + Vessel
One of the best ways to brighten your everyday landscape is to mix in houseplants. These turquoise-and-white speckle-glazed clay planters are expertly crafted with love by Traci Ward of Plant + Vessel. Each creation is completely unique and made to be absorbent, meaning healthier roots and a happier home.
The Southern Loom
A deep love of hunting for antiques led Laura Branson to harness her eye for design and establish her very own vintage rug shop. The yoga instructor and Wild Flower Swimwear owner personally selects each handwoven pattern, forming a distinct collection that delivers a new layer of character to every room.
Vintage-hunting connoisseurs likely need no introduction to this Austin gem. Moving to a brand-new North Lamar location this January, owner Sonia Rife curates a range of preloved items from trendy clothing to large furniture for local pickup. We’re still dreaming of this gorgeous wicker peacock chair!
