Above, the rich colors of the floral print sofas in Liza Pulitzer Calhoun’s home would look fabulous for fall. 

Though most think of florals for spring, fall’s color palette extends the botanical trend for another season. When translated into reds, golden yellows, and warm neutrals, florals get a renewed sophistication that have a cozier feel than pastels. You can also easily mix the motif with the knit throws, darker woods, and heavier fabrics that we bring out starting in late September. Here are just a few of our favorite pieces that’ll help you transition from summer to fall.

Duralee Jameson Floral Print Chair


Why we love it: Instead of just focusing on florals, the upholstery on this versatile accent chair features a variety of botanical motifs. Its dark frame also makes this just right for fall.

Glen Cove Sari Area Rug

Why we love it: Florals mingle with abstract forms in this brilliant area rug, which takes its design cues from traditional saris. Whether you’re going for the boho look or want to energize a room with an eye-catching pattern, this is the rug you need.

Kindel Furniture Crescent Channeled-Back Sofa

Why we love it: It’s all about quality with this sofa. The American-made, bench-crafted piece will be a favorite for years to come. We particularly love the upholstery: the white background of the motif beautifully sets off the mulberry, golden, and muted greens within the pattern.

Gina Berschneider Ladderback Floral Print Chair

Why we love it: Like the Duralee chair, this design pairs gorgeous wood with a floral print. Instead of a golden-tinged colorway, the upholstery features cooler red and blue hues.

Asian Decorative Arts Chinese Red Lacquer Garden Seats

Why we love it: The brilliant red background of these garden seats recalls the blazing red hues of autumn leaves. Finely detailed flowers decorate the sides of each stool, adding interest from every angle. Use the pair as side tables for instant chic.
