"By now everyone knows of the pineapple’s significance as a sign of welcome and hospitality in Hawaii and other parts of the Americas and Europe. However, in Chinese culture, the spiky bromeliad is also a symbol of wealth, luck, and good fortune—in other words, the perfect motif to bring style and grace to any room in your home. To channel the tropical theme this summer, we’ve rounded up 19 home decor pieces (pool float not included) that put everyone’s favorite fruit front and center. Make a playful statement with a bold application, such as a filigreed wallpaper in sunny hues in a guest room or cheery embellished linens in a kid’s bedroom; or strike a subtler note, whether with a diminutive brass pineapple as a handle on a copper pot or a photographic print of the fruit’s verdant fringe above your bar cart. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to set an inviting tone that’ll put friends and family at ease with an extra dose of fun."
