All-season décor Products that have year-round appeal are indeed big sellers when it comes to lodge-cabin-rustic products, says Brianne Skien, marketing coordinator at Melrose International, a Quincy, IL-based manufacturer. “With the nature and natural collections that go with


everyday décor, you can keep them out longer,” Skien says. “A lot of the stuff you can put up in October—a lot of the natural trees and things that can go up and be accent pieces—and these can be out until summer … it’s nature, it comes easy. You can put it in your house—there’s simplicity to it. With that rustic, even if your color scheme is red and white in your kitchen, a natural brown goes with it. You don’t have to worry, ‘Does it match?’” Among their best-selling items are pillows embroidered


with trees. These are gray with white contrasting stitching, and can be used as an everyday piece, Skien says. A set of two (one is 14-inches and another is 16-inches in size) retails for about $55. Melrose International also has candleholders that customers have used for, well, candles as well as for holding fruit like apples and oranges. “It’s a basic everyday staple piece and they look rustic—there’s a brown metal scroll base. You can do a lot of things with them—you could use them for anything,” she says.


Artistic home furnishings For Bev and Lee McDowell, owners of Cripple Creek Creations in Bandera, TX, designs are “a little bit chic western and lodge.” “Our products are from natural sources,” Bev McDowell


says. One of Cripple Creek’s mainstays: antler art, made from


antlers that have naturally shed by animals. These items may be adorned with fur and leather. “You can display them on the wall, you can display them on tables,” she says. “The size varies—there are long, skinny ones and an elk one can be close to 40 inches long with shoots of antlers off it. It’s all kinds of fun.” “We try not to do the same thing that everyone else


does,” McDowell says. “We try to make things that people haven’t seen—sometimes it’s a little far out, but not always.”
