This week we wanted to show some appreciation to the quaint and charming style associated with the classic English country cottage. Whether you’re lucky enough to live in one or are just a fan of this cosy style of décor, a touch of country cottage style can be added to even the most modern of homes with unique pieces which combine traditional designs with contemporary finishes to bring the country cottage look right up to date.
Swap your Outdoor Table and Chairs for a Picnic Bench
Everybody loves a picnic and our Malibu Table & Bench Set puts a fun twist on al fresco dining with a nod to the traditional British summer time. Upgrading your outdoor dining set for a picnic bench is sure to go down well with the kids and will certainly be the talking point of your BBQ’s and garden parties!
Whilst our Malibu Table & Bench Set has a classic picnic bench design, its greywash colouring adds contemporary appeal, meaning it will certainly not look out of place in the modern home.
Malibu - Greywash Wooden Table & Bench Set: £791.01
A Touch of Rustic Rattan
If it’s conservatory design ideas and inspiration you’re looking for then nothing says English country cottage quite like rattan! This natural, woven material sets the mood for summer and adds rustic charm to any home, old or new.
Whilst rattan is often associated with more traditional styles, our Maya High Back Rattan Chairs give this durable material a stylish refresh with their modern high back silhouette. They are available in either natural or whitewash and can be purchased individually, or as a set of 2, perfect for inside or out!
Maya - High Back Rattan Chair - White £89
Shabby Chic Style
Part of the appeal of the country cottage is the perfectly imperfect shabby chic décor, a great starting point if you’re looking for bedroom design ideas or living room design ideas. Our Albion Coffee Table with Drawers has a distressed look, with a traditional, white body which combines with a more modern greywashed, rustic table top to add a touch of nostalgic charm with contemporary flair.
This coffee table is a versatile choice which is sure to complement any interior colour scheme. Equally, practicality has not been overlooked, which is why this coffee table features four drawers opening on each side of the unit for ultimate convenience, along with an undershelf for added storage.
Albion - Coffee Table with Drawers - Distressed: £299
Vintage Buttoned Accent Chairs
Every country cottage almost certainly features an accent chair and here at Out & Out we certainly have a few options to choose from. A timeless classic, our Blenhem Armchair features intricately shaped legs with castor wheels and a cream upholstered seat with traditional button detailing and scrolled arms to top off its luxurious look and create a comfortable and inviting space in the corner of the living room.
The cream colouring of this chair will match whatever colour your living room may be, or it could even take pride of place as an accent chair in the bedroom with its romantic, vintage inspired design.
Blenham - Classic Armchair: £299
