Fiddle Leaf Fig

The design world’s favorite houseplant is also a recurring character in Home Town reveals, and it’s easy to see why: This West African beauty’s broad, architectural leaves are an ideal accent for decor of all kinds. As an indoor guest, it’ll eventually grow six to eight feet tall—and outdoors in a balmy climate, it can top 50 feet. How’s that for a dramatic gift?

Hand-Printed Table Runner

Stamped with dye-resistant mud and then bathed in vibrant indigo, each of these graphic cotton runners is one of a kind. They’re also the product of two family businesses: Sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman design Block Shop’s products at their Los Angeles studio, and the Chhipa family of fifth-generation master printers create them in Bagru, Rajasthan. Each year, Block Shop invests 5% of its profits in developing health care programs for the community in Bagru.

Vintage Fern Print Set

Erin’s eagle eye for old-school flora and fauna is gallery-wall magic, and Stacey Powell of Idaho’s Belle Botanica is similarly studious: She spends hours poring over historical texts, then enhancing and reinterpreting the antique images she finds. This beauty (sold in a set of 4)—printed on textured canvas paper with archival-quality inks—is ready to become an heirloom in its own right.
