Mushroom Home Goods for Spring

While walking to a friend's house in Lincoln Park last month, I stopped by local boutique Tabula Tua to browse. I ended up impulsively buying the mushroom sculpture pictured above — a pretty, much more reasonable option to the Lars Bolander sculptures I've long admired.

Then two weeks ago, I ended up in a conversation with some amateur mushroom hunters about how it's almost morel season here in the Great Lakes. Now, I keep seeing mushroom-bedecked products everywhere. So, in honor of spring mushroom season, here are 12 lovely options for your home:

1. The sculpture I bought is carved from fallen trees by artists in Provence. $30-$115, in store only at Tabula Tua.
2. Mushroom silhouettes dance across this neutral-colored tea towel. $26 at MakeLike.
3. A festive tray for alfresco springtime lunches. Approximately $42 at New House Textiles (part of their Wild Mushroom series).
4. Elegant, handpainted china for true mushroom aficionados. $280 a plate at Tabula Tua.
5. A woodsy terranium kit full of golden mushrooms. $20 at Terrain.
6 Quirky mushroom bedding, perfect for a cabin or woodland-inspired room. $30-$98 at Garnet Hill.
7. Shimmery, mercury mushrooms for your bookshelves or tabletop. $10-$24 at West Elm
8. This doormat would look great on a small city deck, surrounded by a container garden. $35 at India Rose
9. These nickelplate mushroom pulls could work anywhere from an old dresser to a desk in the kitchen. $6.45 at Michael Aram.
10. Playful, brightly-colored fabric from Alexander Henry. $25 at Duckcloth
11. If approximations won't do, grow your own shiitakes on this mushroom log. $32 at Terrain.
12. Serve your sushi on these unexpected, low-key dishes. $32 at Bailey Bowls' Etsy Shop
13. Colorful, vintage-inspired coasters would look great on a midcentury table. $13 at Little Coaster Gnomes' Etsy shop.
