Three Tips for Choosing Lamp Finials from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Accenting lamps with the most fitting finial for your home d├ęcor need not be a science. The professional decorators at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop share their three best tips for finding finials.

Portland, ME, August 10, 2014 --( Often overlooked, lamp finials are the final touch on any well decorated lamp. When taking a look at redecorating any room, the multitude of lamp finials available on the market may be overwhelming. Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, the destination for country home furnishings for over sixty years, shares their three best tips for selecting lamp finials to decorate any home.

1. Coordination is Key

Choosing a finial should be just as important as selecting any other decorative piece for the home. Lamp finials should coordinate with current décor in the room. Woodland inspired bedrooms would benefit from lamp finials shaped like animals, leaves or trees. Sturbridge Yankee Workshop features several of this variety, including Bear Lamp Finial, Brass Bunny Lamp Finial and Leaves Lamp Finial.

2. Have a Theme

Sturbridge shared a little secret about home decorating: simple additions can make instant impact. Let’s say a living room features several simple black table lamps with woven cream shades. The overall décor of the room is full of rich colors alluding Colonial or federal decorating styles. Simple imagery and motifs, like Colonial Pineapple Lamp Finial or Pineapple Centerpiece Lamp Finial complete, complete the inviting early America theme. Pineapples have been used for centuries as traditional symbols of welcome and hospitality, due to their rare nature and relative difficulty to obtain.

3. Keep it Fun

We all need something fun to brighten a room and make us smile. Sturbridge makes it easy to add whimsical accents to any table or floor lamp with finials to enhance any decorator’s personal style. Choose from classic shapes such as Iron Starfish Lamp Finial, fitting for nautical and beach themed rooms, or Brass Butterfly Lamp Finial, just right for children’s bedrooms or any area with a nature inspired decorating theme.

By keeping it simple, fun and thematic, every lamp in the home can feature a fitting finial to bring an entire room together. Now through September 18, customers can save on all lighting and accessories during the Annual Fall Lighting Sale at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
