The Lakeside Collection in Country Sampler Magazine
If you crave a country Christmas, you aren’t alone. The cozy warmth of simple country styles is perfect for the holidays. The Lakeside feature in Country Sampler magazine showcases the best in rustic style for your home this season. When you order today, you’ll have everything you need to create these appealing country looks for your home this Christmas.
Get in the holiday spirit with a warm, cuddly snowflake throw. In holiday red or wintry blue with embroidered snowflakes, this throw will chase away the chills on snowy nights. They’re perfect for curling up with a good book and a mug of your favorite cocoa. Our hanging star candle holders were as popular with Country Sampler decorators as they have been with our shoppers. In festive holiday hues of red, green and gold, these wrought metal and glass holders sparkle on chilly winter nights. Each star-shaped holder opens in the back for a tea light, or compact LED candle. Simple stars are a popular country motif, and they’re also ideal for spreading radiant holiday cheer.
The professional holiday decorators who create glossy magazine spreads have a secret: yards and yards of colorful ribbon. With Lakeside’s 10 Yards of Ribbon, you can have the designer look in your own home. Wrap brilliant red ribbon around your Christmas tree, decorate your mantel in shining silver or adorn a centerpiece with shimmering gold. Each generous length of ribbon is wide enough to make a statement whether you use it as a decoration by itself or tie it into festive bows for packages.
Bear-skin rugs might call to mind a cozy, snowed-in cabin in the woods, but Lakeside’s Big Pine Lodge collection has a whimsical take on the classic bear rug. With its shades of brown and beige, our stylized bear rug fits with any country decor. The easy-care polyester rug is a handsome addition to a bedroom, den or library. Even if you don’t have a country lodge, you can enjoy a little bit of wilderness, especially when it’s as adorable as this fellow. This is one bear you wouldn’t mind inviting into your home for the holidays!
Candles are always lovely for a country Christmas setting. Their soft light creates a warm, welcoming ambiance that turns any room into a cozy retreat. With these handpainted candle jars, you get the appeal of country warmth in a safe, flameless decorator accent. The vintage illustrations of snowmen, Santa Claus or bright red cardinals call to mind the beautiful Currier and Ives images of yesteryear’s Christmas celebrations, but the LED technology is thoroughly modern. A gingham ribbon around the top of the jar is the perfect finishing touch.
It isn’t Christmas without a tree, and these 7-Foot slim prelit Christmas trees are favorites for designers because they add plenty of visual interest without taking up much space. The natural-looking foliage has 200 white or multi-colored lights to take the fuss out of tree-trimming and let you focus on the fun of it. String popcorn for an authentic country look, trim with sparkling glass ornaments or decorate your tree with hand-cut paper snowflakes. However you decorate it, your tree is sure to dazzle.
Country Sampler features the best in modern country style, and we’re proud to bring you a beautiful display for country Christmas fans. Bring the warmth and friendliness of classic country style home for the holidays with Country Sampler and Lakeside!
