Use painted oak furniture for a French farmhouse feel
Capture the charm and romance of rural France using one of our painted dining tables as a centrepiece in the room. The Kemble dining table and 6 chairs has a rustic, real oak top and off-white painted legs, to help you achieve a classic cottage look. Complete the effect with matching chairs that feature check print fabric cushions, for a homey feel.
For the walls, choose a light blue or green colour pallet for a soft and cosy effect. Shades such as duck egg blue and rain-washed green conjure up images of the French countryside, and work well with painted furniture, allowing you to get the vintage cottage chic finish you desire.
Use natural solid mango furniture and grass chairs for a rustic look
For a rustic look with more of a traditional English twist, the beautiful Mantis Light dining table in solid mango really works well in a vintage cottage dining room. The chunky wood has a rich taupe glow and the natural grain pattern blends well with endless colours, materials, and patterns.
The matching Mantis Light plain grass chairs have a bohemian appeal, allowing them to effortlessly match plain, striped, or tartan fabrics. Try sticking to mostly neutral colours throughout the rest of the room and inject colour with a few carefully selected pastel tones on ornaments or accessories.
Showcase your personality using a solid wood display cabinet
Channel a vintage theme with a traditional display cabinet, which adds useful storage as well as being a place you can show off treasured ornaments. The Romsey display cabinet in solid oak features stunning glass-fronted doors and thick cut shelves, perfect for showcasing antique crockery, favourite photos, or cookery books.
If you’re limited on space, the Mantis Light display unit in natural solid mango is a quirky and fun piece that can bring a modern edge to your vintage cottage theme. Used it to store everything from crockery and glassware to trinkets and plants.
