Design-friendly pineapple decor

For centuries, pineapples have been a symbol of friendship and welcome. Since Europeans discovered them in 1493, pineapples captured hearts and taste buds and so began the love affair. This quintessential warm weather fruit became prized for its rarity and anyone having one or feeding them to guests was seen as hospitable. They have since made their way onto front door steps, lamps, bedposts, and other home decor items and bringing a bit of hospitality to your home is easier than ever. I’ve taken the time to round up a few of my favorite pineapples themed home goods so you can warm up your home.
