Historically the pineapple symbolised hospitality, when Christopher Columbus landed in the Indies a pineapple was left at the entrance to a village as a sign of welcome.
This symbolism spread to Europe and onto Colonial North America where it became popular to carve stone pineapples into the gate posts of your home.
The Pineapple has become a very popular design trend this year and pineapples are appearing all over our homes.
