Lazy Bear Ranch Framed PrintVintage-look framed prints have a unique way of adding character to a home or cabin. They can create country appeal, add a rustic lodge look or express your family’s tastes and interests. This Lazy Bear Ranch Framed Print depicts a reclining black bear with a textured, canvas-like finish.

It’s fairly sizable, so you might want to surround it with smaller wall décor items to let it be the centerpiece.

Whether you go with tapestry hangings, vintage signs, framed art or metal art, adding a unique art piece can create drama and add beauty to a room.

Black Bear Creek CupboardStorage space can be at a premium in any home, and additional storage units come in handy perhaps especially in a cabin. This Black Bear Creek Cupboard features a tall shelf on top, a drop-down cabinet door and three lower shelves for books, photos, and anything else you might need.

It also features a lake inset on the top for nature-themed décor. When a furniture item can provide both the storage you need and the look you love, it’s a definite keeper.
