Linen Crate is a newer subscription box that has transformed quite a bit over the past few months – instead of just linens, it’s pretty squarely focused on home decor in general. When you sign up you’ll fill out a home decor style profile, and your boxes will be based on the color and style preferences expressed in your profile. Every month you’ll receive $150+ worth of expertly curated goods in every box. You can get this box every month, every other month, or every three months! Every subscriber will receive a bathroom box as their first box, see what we received in our Linen Crate Bathroom Box!  You can see the box schedule here. Linen Crate now offers a Prime Crate and an Elite Crate – the Prime Crate ($109) is the full box like this – the Elite Crate ($75) will have a bit less.

Linen Crate has changed ownership and going forward will focus on modern/contemporary styles. As that has been my preference, I do not expect the style of the items I have received to change. The new owners have dramatically simplified everything by eliminating the style profiles and the multiple frequency options.

The card on top notes the crate value.  Everything was extremely well protected, wrapped up, and packed neatly and securely.

Everything in our October Linen Crate box for the Living Room!!

Shiraleah Agate Coasters ($34.99, original MSRP $71.99) I like a nice natural touch to balance out my modern decor. These were ok. In particular, mine don’t seem to be of the same quality as the stock photos, and bits of agate fell out when I lifted these up.

The bottoms have little dots to protect your table.linen crate october 2015IMG_8882

I’m not entirely sure that the ones with holes will fulfill their intended purpose.  There’s no edge around these like you normally see with agate. I think I will use these as bases for candles or something like that. They’re still useful and interesting, but I don’t think they’re going to make it to my coaster rotation.

Shiraleah Bali Pillow in Seaweed ($29.99, original MSRP $60) This pillow came packed with the insert and the pillow, and you just tuck the insert in and zip it up. It’s made of an extremely sturdy canvas like metallic and printed with a sort of chevron grid theme.

I cannot make up my mind about this pillow. I cannot stand it close up but far away I really like it. It matches my living room perfectly and I think the bright yellow provides exactly the touch of color it needs. I have a turquoise couch and everything is modern so it does fit right in. Some subscribers received this in a totally glam gold print, which I love.  I am pretty sure that the October box was sent using previous profiles and I would say that this pillow matched mine!

Torre and Tagus Talis Hammered Copper Short Vase ($48.71) If this is short, who needs tall! I have said it before and I’ll say it again – I love receiving tall items in home decor subscription boxes.  They really balance out the rest of your display. I love the colors in this piece, and in particular, I like that it can stand alone as a statement, but is subtle enough for a background. Bonus – the bottom is felted!

The total value of my box added up to $113.69, which is a handful of change less than the box cost with shipping. Finding and curating gorgeous home items that happen to have been clearanced is fine – there’s value still in someone putting it all together and shipping it to you. However, the items need to be totally top notch. I would say with the $40 coupon it’s very much worth it to give it a try, but I’ll have to see the November box in order to see how this box might shake out in future months.

    I think I’d be mad if I paid $114 for this box, I don’t like any of the items. The coasters are cool in theory, yours don’t look like ramblingsofasuburbanmom’s. Her’s look to have an edge on them and no holes. I think the idea behind the box is great, but haven’t been impressed by any of the boxes. For $114 I can go to Target and get a bunch of things I love that are my style.

    I’m sorry you are experiencing so many troubles especially while on vacation. I hope you are able to relax and have fun.

    Brandy – My comments are not showing up 🙁 Also sometimes I see an up-to-date page and other times I see an older page as the first page.

    I’m glad that I unsubscribed prior to the changes. I am not a huge fan of modern/contemporary. I do like the coasters.

      we aren’t sure how people are getting to the staging site. i did a post on the go today and it showed up there. i’m really ticked about it. make sure you go to (look in the browser bar). i’m really stressed about it and we’re on vacation and i have sent my host 3 zillion emails about it.
