It can be really frustrating to discover gorgeous pieces for your home, but find they’re from different ranges, or different in style to your existing furniture. We’ve all been taught that matching furniture gives a clean and consistent look to your home. In reality, introducing new and different pieces can give your space depth, uniqueness and a bespoke feel.
Oak Furnitureland pieces were built with versatility in mind, so that they integrate fantastically with different ranges and existing furniture, no matter the look of your home. Their same but different qualities blend seamlessly together to create a refined finish in any room.
Our ranges were all created to work together, but to give you some blending ideas, here are some of our favourites.
Hove meets Romsey
The minimalist silhouettes are a beautiful reflection of one another. The simple curved edges of both ranges, contrasted with the clean cut flat-fronted drawers and recessed handles make for the perfect pair.
These ranges work beautifully together to create a modern yet timeless look, so that you can love this combination for years to come.
Pair Kemble with French Farmhouse
But why would you mix painted and rustic or natural oak? Choosing elements from various ranges, with different feels and finishes brings a relaxed and welcoming feel to your home, with carefully selected and distinguished pieces.
It’s likely that you already have a variety of pieces in your home that you want to integrate and complement, both painted and natural wood. One of our favourite combinations is the Kemble range mixed with French Farmhouse pieces.
Our Kemble range offers a beautiful shade of putty grey with lavender undertones, and honey hued rustic oak tops. While the soft, painted finish gives the pieces a refined feel, the panelled sides and drop bar handles make a gorgeous, rustic complement to the French Farmhouse range. As with the Hove and Romsey mixture, complementing natural oak with painted furniture allows for individual pieces to stand out, and command their own attention.
The French Farmhouse large dresser, inspired by antique furniture from the Louis Philippe period, is a beautiful addition to any dining room, particularly when it complements the Kemble dining table set. The Kemble and French Farmhouse combination, particularly in a kitchen or dining room, creates a a beautiful country cottage feel.
If you’re worried about it affecting the cohesiveness of your home, you can water down the contrast of painted and rustic oak pieces with a consistent colour scheme, to grab attention in the desired spaces.
East Coast blend: Boston and Brooklyn
The accented metal frames of both the Boston and Brooklyn ranges make them an undeniable duo. The striking industrial frame of the Brooklyn, and Boston’s nod to the industrial style with its galvanised metal sleigh legs and handles, gives the combination a beautiful East Coast loft feel.
Their angular silhouettes and clean finish give the ranges a perfect pared back feel, ready to customise with plants and accessories, or left dressed down for a more accented minimalist touch. They work beautifully together, but are also fantastically teamed with other styles to create either a sleek, chic finish, or stand out piece against a more country cottage feel.
So, which items work best together? These pieces beautifully complement each other in every room of the home, giving a clean and contemporary style. We recommend pairing the open-framed Brooklyn bed with the slick Boston bedside table, for a warm warehouse feel in your bedroom.
You should now have more of an idea of how to mix and match pieces in your home.
