Setting the Mood: Autumn Edition

Autumn has awakened. There’s something ethereal about this season. The warm colors, the scents, the complex textures, the golden light that grows richer as we transition from summer to winter. There’s no doubt about it—the magic of Fall ignites the creative spirit.

My name is Mia and I am Porter’s Creative Experience Director. Celebrating culture and creativity is integral to the Porter experience. I want to invite you into the room with us and share an inside peek into the seasonal trends, inspiration, and decor that we love.

I’m excited to highlight some of our recent finds that embody that perfect autumnal je ne sais quoi. Some of the treasures we sourced are recent product launches, and others are vintage beauties that complement the season to perfection. Even better? Many of the items come from the wildly talented business owners in our Makers Program.

Inspiration awaits—and you just might find something to FALL for (sorry…I had to).

The Goal: Nesting

We are so excited about the new Marie Burgos lighting collection. The sleek bulbous shape is both sophisticated and unique. The amber color creates warmth in any space.

This amazing Swedish vintage vase with a brown mottled glaze was made in the 1970s by Claes Thell. We love the natural pattern, texture, and shape of the piece. 


 We’re loving the gorgeous, luxe shape of the Garsnas Dag daybed. Its versatile, plush design sets itself apart and is a true showstopper.

Miniforms has created a unique new collection of Pinto side tables. These one-of-a-kind tables are crafted in cement.

Effortless Composition created this fun, hand-crafted wood three-dimensional piece of decor that brings depth and a playful vibe into any space.

This Laun Bobbin Chair is an absolute work of art. Its round bolsters thread between aluminum rails to create a solid yet undoubtedly comfortable seat.

Elan Byrd has created a stunning collection of artwork that is a celebration of texture and the organic, natural forms found in nature. Her aesthetic is a representation of her journey of breaking free from the construct of perfection and embracing the beauty of imperfection.

Sun at 6 extended their Temi chair line into bar and counterstool options. We love the comfort, casual, and cozy feeling you get from the unique aesthetic.

We are in awe of this Vintage Rattan Harley Motorbike, created in Spain circa 1970. It is pristinely woven with style and is sure to make a statement in any collection or space.

The Moooi Knitty Lounge Chair’s unique combination of scale and softness will make you curl up with your favorite book or series and give in to ultimate relaxation.

Sun at 6 created the new, design-forward wave table, which has a silhouette that speaks for itself. It was designed with the sense of touch in mind and is meant for long, thoughtful gatherings.

Virginia Sin’s new wall mirror collection is beyond stunning. The free-flowing shape of the Mar Wall Mirror is formed by hand. A 12” round mirror acts as a reflecting pool in this organic form that appears to float on the surface of the wall.

These egg-shaped accessory boxes designed by Jaimal Odedra exude warmth and radiance. They can be layered into any space for a touch of glam.

This new classic Marie Burgos Casablanca chair is made to last for years to come. It has a sturdy yet slender frame and perfectly balances any space.

The Berta pillow in Tan by Bole Road creates visual texture and softness within a space. We love this classic pattern and quality weave.

We love the style of this Italian mid-century floor lamp with parchment shades. It’s the perfect balance of smooth and angular. It exudes light and warmth.

The Inspiration: Black Market Vintage

We have fallen in love with Black Market Vintage in Brooklyn. The inspiring material feels rich and endless. BLK MKT Vintage is a NY-based antique/vintage concept shop that specializes in collectibles, cast-offs, and curiosities—all of which represent the richness of Black history and lived experience. Curated by founders Jannah Handy and Kiyanna Stewart, the collection includes found items like vintage literature, vinyl records, clothing, art, housewares/decor, furniture, and other goods.

The Mood: Cozy AF

Spír Candle Co. is based out of the Ballard neighborhood in Seattle, WA. This is the perfect way to create warmth in your space while also supporting a great cause. Spír exclusively employs underrepresented youth—including those who have had periods of incarceration—to create their candles. Their business positively impacts the Seattle community(and the candles are amazing)! You can purchase them at The Shop by Porter.

‘Tis the season for stretchy pants and carbs! As professional Autumn connoisseurs, we recommend pairing your bagel with an Eastfork ceramic plate for the ultimate cozy-chic vibes. We love Eastfork not only for its beautiful pottery and home goods but also for the company’s commitment to community and the environment as a Certified B Corporation.

Stay cozy through the cooler months with this gorgeous Ezcaray tie-dye throw. It is expertly crafted from a sumptuous mohair and wool blend to ensure warmth and plush comfort!
