The Vintage French Grain Sack look continues to have legs; great long legs. Target is the latest store to jump on this trend, which has been so popular for the last few years~
Target’s Vintage Charm Stool; $49.99 and out of stock online; you can find it at some stores~
Simple, but cute, isn’t it? I guarantee, made in China. I saw it recently in one of the décor magazines, prominently featured on a leading page; proof to me of the hunger for high-low design~
In the same line, Vintage Charm Lamp Shade $19.99; this is really cute! Link HERE~
Other stores have apparently done well with this look for several years, as they continue to show the merchandise~ Grain sack pillows ranging from 50-80 years old; $89.00 at Pottery Barn; link HERE.
Also at Pottery Barn, a more reasonable Circle Frame Pillow Cover at $35; the pillow is for the frame only, PB will monogram it for an extra fee; hand wash; link HERE.
Ballard seems to come up with endless new ways to use the grain sack look; here in their Moulin Burlap Cube “stenciled on one side to resemble a vintage French grain sack;” $269; link HERE.
And even their Monogrammed Linen Tissue Cover, $55 for set of three with free monogram; link HERE.
Restoration Hardware always has a selection; online, their Vintage French burlap pillow covers are $28-54; made of “natural jute” (read: Burlap); the website says artisans spend 24 hours creating each one. Spot clean only~
And others printed on Belgian linen; now on sale HERE for $28-32~
Where am I going with this post? Well, in the next week my latest magazine feature will be out; and I can tell you it has something to do with this look, only better. I began planning for this feature many, many months ago, long before any of these products were on the market. Love the look, not the price. Thinking of some really great gifts to give for Christmas, but something a little more personal…..hmmm….
Do you like this look? Do you already have any Vintage Grain Sack pieces?
Stay tuned; the issue should be out shortly; I can’t wait to show you!
