6 Places for Pineapples in Your Home Design

Where are your manners? With walls, furniture and fabrics showing this welcoming fruit, they'll be easy to see around the home



 

Call me old school, but I've always had a thing for that most classic of home design motifs: the pineapple. This showy fruit has symbolized hospitality for centuries, and for me, seeing a pineapple on a lamp, wallpaper or planter in a home translates to a warm sense of welcome that I can't resist.

Although some people dismiss pineapple patterns as a relic of '80s prep, in truth they transcend trends. They're especially big here in the Southern U.S., where hospitality is a point of pride, but there's no region or design style with which they don't get along. From fabric to finials, they continue to show up in stylish new accents that suit all kinds of decor — check out the examples below.

Exotic flowers look just right for a pineapple-shaped planter. Its organic form contrasts with the geometric, angular lamps and console table.

In a space that recasts fishing lures as wall art and houses a blended family of accent pieces, a pineapple finial on the banister feels entirely appropriate.
