Who else has been swept up in catering to the garden lately? We’re fully aware of our pre-occupation with the outside of our homes with recent patches of good weather. Of course, it can be all too easy to push the home projects to the back of the mind at this time of year. Perhaps, like us, it just needs that right little spark to reignite projects that have been sidelined, seeing a new idea or furniture range somewhere online. Well, in many ways this newest collection did just that for us; re-firing up the love we’ve always held for shabby chic decor. Today we unveil to you the sumptuous Wiltshire Collection.
Reclaimed Wood Tables Of Elegance
As you may have noticed if you’ve spent time perusing our selections, we’re always ones to see the benefits of this specific genre of furniture. We will always think lovely artisanal inspired rural and rustic furniture is a charming way of adding character and texture to the modern dining room, living room or any home space for that matter. In collections such as the Modern Farmhouse and Cotswold you’ll find wonderfully homely rural offerings, we can’t get enough of shabby chic decor. No, honestly, we can’t! Moreover, this trend has also stayed strong in home design for a number of years and doesn’t look to be slowing any time soon, remaining as a classic. However, when we clapped eyes on the Wiltshire Range it gave us some real food for thought. This range doesn’t just fit squarely in the reclaimed furniture category, but integrally projects an air of elegance and refinement, too. In short, it offers something a shade different.
Let’s look into some of those touches that set it slightly aside. The key focus has to surely be on the sterling array of reclaimed wood tables which forms the backbone of this collection. The Wiltshire 1.8m Extending Dining Table is squarely at the heart of proceedings, a wonderfully versatile table that also offers touches of refinement alongside its shabby chic decor credentials. We think it’s a table that’s suitable for many a modern dining room or kitchen. The bronzed brushed steel frame accents the nutmeg brown of the reclaimed timber table top with an understated majesty, underlining the lip of the table subtly. It’s truly the contrast in tones of the bronze metallic against the deep, rich shade of the nutmeg which helps set this set apart. The brass and faded gleam of the metal even give a nod to art deco stylings.
The dining table offers great versatility in seating numbers, because it can be extended from a 6 seater all the way to seat 10 if needed. By purchasing the handy two Wiltshire Extension Leaves that simply slot into the ends, the table goes from 1.8m, up to 2.7m all the way to a handsome 3.6m with both inserted. We recommend pairing with the Wiltshire Oatmeal chairs, seating that would pair well with any shabby chic decor. Alternatively the table’s aesthetic truly allows for pairing with many seating options, including benches. As far as reclaimed wood tables come, this is openly a classy act.
Alongside this dining table are the two adorable yet suave coffee tables. The same brushed bronze accentuates the undeniable shabby chic decor of this reclaimed furniture, giving it an almost ornate feel. The large expanse of the Wiltshire Rectangle Coffee Table will please many looking for space to rest home belongings or give a room a rigid focal point. Whilst the Wiltshire Round Coffee Table is a nifty size to place in corners, or complementing a sofa or occasional chair.The Wiltshire Console Table intriguingly offers a lovely lower shelf, too – meaning displaying more trinkets and ornaments on the lovely grained brown of the nutmeg is doubled up – place this in a hallway or bedroom.
Storage Solutions That Look Great
The collection isn’t just tables though. The storage solutions are also both attractive and offer ample space for belongings. The Wiltshire Large Sideboard offers three large compartments to store household items and again still boasts that shabby chic decor but still shows off those little touches of opulence in the bronzed brushed steel details. We think it could be just the piece to breathe that earthy texture into a cosy living room or modern dining room, and of course wonderfully paired with any other of the Wiltshire range. The Wiltshire TV Unit is much alike the sideboard but crucially offers the two shelves for tech and console and the cylindrical cut out for wiring in the rear. Whereas, the Wiltshire Display Unit is a wonderful exercise in style meets function with large airy space for books, ornaments, pictures and art. Multi layers encourage a personalisation and there’s undeniably an emphasis on the metallic finishes, helping to consolidate the suave and smoky appeal of this range.
We’re enamoured with this new range, and think you’ll like what you see too!
