We need to talk about our cultural obsession with pumpkins

We may have begrudgingly accepted the August release of the pumpkin spice latte (and the much better pumpkin cream cold brew); we may have even thrilled at pumpkin spice ciders, ice creams, and croissants

But a $368 Le Creuset cast iron cocotte, shaped like a pumpkin, begging to hold as many soups as we can possibly whip up between now and December? Now it's gone too far. We'll take one in every color.

Here's where to find the dutch oven that broke the internet locally, along with some other home goods inspired by our pumpkin overgourds.

Velvet pumpkins are a classic autumn home decoration for a reason: They fall solidly outside Halloween kitsch, while still satisfying our primal desire to cover our homes in pumpkin stuff.

$34

$368 is, admittedly, a little steep for a kitchen item you'll use for a quarter of the year. Get the same effect with the little, single-serve version of the Le Creuset heartbreaker—perfect for keeping those pumpkin-flavored baked goods all to yourself.
