It’s that time of year again, when the days get a bit cooler, a bit shorter. Where we grab our jumpers out of the back of our wardrobes and proudly display our woolly throws over the back of our sofa in preparation. Autumn has most certainly arrived in full force here at Oak Furniture Land HQ.
If you’re anything like us, the changing of the seasons is one of those things that has you itching to hit refresh, and bring something new into your life and home to celebrate the shift in the weather. This time, we’re not just changing up the decor around the office, but we’ve also got some brand new arrivals to show you.
After seeing so many wonderful designers, projects, pieces, and homes at the Ideal Home Show this spring, we were bitten by the inspiration bug, and ran straight back to the workbenches to bring our new ideas to life over the summer.
And voila! Our new Shay and Canterbury collections are a result of that inspiration, just in time for that Autumn refresh. Each takes a twist on classic designs to bring a fresh feeling into your home no matter the season.
With our Canterbury range, we wanted to combine traditional design, with modern colours and accents to create unfussy pieces with a grounded feel. It’s made to look as effortlessly at home in a country B&B as it does in a contemporary loft.
We chose natural oak for its bright and happy finish, which lets the patterns of the wood grain really shine through. It’s accented with dark antique metal handles for contrast. The classical elements, such as flared cornices and mitred panels, are perfectly contrasted by friendly details like the rounded corners and flattened bun feet, which soften the overall look.
Celebrating the spirit of the seasonal switch, our Canterbury console table is a great way to refresh your hallway, especially when decorated with seasonal accessories, such as a warm cranberry scented candle, or an elegant brass bowl to store your keys.
This new collection is a breath of fresh air for your home. Our Shay range, painted in a beautiful shade of almond grey, is designed to bring a neat and sunny feeling into your home, all year round.
We’ve packed the Shay range full of cheerful details to help you create a happy home. The jauntily turned legs which elevate each piece, beading at the shoulder, and rustic oak tops all bring a warmth to the collection. Antique brass metal handles complete the look, and gently flared cornices give it a subtle French flair.
Great autumn home style is easy with our Shay coffee table. Create a warm feeling with a gorgeous tray in ruby or burgundy tones, or accessorise with greenery. Adding a small potted succulent adds a perfect touch of life indoors leading into the cooler months.
But Wait, There’s More!
If you love Shay as much as we do, you’re in luck! To celebrate our newest additions, we’re hosting a very special giveaway of our Shay coffee table. Head on over here to enter, and help get your home ready for the new season.
