Happy first week of fall! Maybe it sounds contradictory, but we love that “new beginning” feeling autumn brings. From the start of the art season to back to school, we don’t think we’ll ever get tired of what we would dare to call nature’s chicest time of year.
We’ve been busy these past few months at the Hyperallergic Store, trying out intriguing new art-inspired products and continuing to enjoy classic customer favorites. We can’t wait to show off what we have in store for you, so without further ado, read on for our latest and greatest accessories, home goods, games, toys, and more.

Now that it’s officially fall, we can finally show you our favorite new art-inspired footwear: Hieronymous Bosch’s triptych comes as three exquisitely knitted pairs of socks, each featuring symbolic elements from the panel it represents.

Speaking of functional artsy decor, these cloth napkins, based on one of American textile designer Marguerita Mergentime’s bold patterns, are formatted so that four different graphic effects can be achieved depending on how the napkins are folded. Available in both cool and warm colors, the set complements any of the items in our Home Goods collection.
We’re simply dotty for this fine bone china plate that features a design from Louise Bourgeois’s fabric book Ode À La Bièvre. Three more plates at the store are also decorated with stunning imagery from this work. You can feast your eyes upon them all, plus even more elegant homeware, in our Louise Bourgeois collection!
Immerse yourself in a world of abstract equilibrium with 57 tiles inspired by modernist visionary Piet Mondrian. Arrange the tiles to create table-top compositions of perfect balance, large or small. It’s a great coffee table activity but if you’re looking for a more traditional puzzle, we have a whole bunch of good ones!
Just a scant few decades after Mondrian, René Magritte pushed the boundaries of the art world even further with his philosophical surrealist paintings. Today, this famous artist makes an adorable desk or studio companion in figurine form, accessorizing with his signature pipe, a bowler hat, and a foot-shoe inspired by “The Red Model.” And yes, he really does smell like apples.
