Injecting a beach cottage feel in your home can be as easy as pairing a neutral duo, such as silvery grey and sandy natural, with seaborne hues like blues and greens. A mix of weathered grey and sand with aqua and deep sea blue brings to mind bleached driftwood set against a shimmering blue sky and ocean expanse. Offering a modern twist on a tribal pattern, the Medina Green Jacquard Woven Wool Rug effortlessly ties together this beach-driven palette. Mixing leather and upholstery, wood and metal, we have selected some pieces to play off all the great colors in this rug: dove grey, soft tan, turquoise, citrus green and deep teal.

If leather is to your liking, our Summerhouse Leather Furniture Collection offers many cottage style sofas, chairs, ottomans and more in an array of bold colors, and many of the pieces are also available upholstered. The Rooster Rock Leather Sofa, also available in an armchair, looks smart with the Myrtle Leather Ottoman. The Footbridge Upholstered Ottoman is a longer option, and can also be used as an impromptu bench or coffee table. Painted furniture always looks at home in a beach cottage living room, and the Grenada Console Table picks up the summery shade of green in this rug. Shown here for added inspiration, the Brushed Nickel Three Pendant Chandelier can add some character to really any room in your beach cottage.

What’s your favorite beachy palette?

Essential at all times of the year, farmhouse tables can even accommodate warm weather gatherings depending upon the wood used to craft them. We love the non-traditional look of this farmhouse trestle table surrounded by industrial chic seating. The architectural interest of the trestle base and the unexpectedly bright color of the table paired with the metallic chairs is going to start all kinds of conversation.

Our Country Farm Craftsman Trestle Table can be made of cypress for outdoor use, or other woods for indoor dining only.  It is available in 6 standard stains and 40 standard paints, including Aquamarine and Pear (shown), as well as custom paint colors. A combination of paint and stain can also be chosen. The length, width, height are all customizable, as well as the top thickness, top shape, planking, breadboards and optional extensions. Our Metal Bistro Chairs, also available as stools, come in several other colors to mix and match and serve as a sassy sidekick to your farmhouse table.

Where do you host your favorite large gatherings?

Building a room around a rug is one of our favorite pastimes, and it seems like the seating always falls into place second. Whether your rug pattern is intricate, with several different colors from which to make a match, or involves only unassuming neutrals, there is never just one chair that will work. Options for matching rugs with chairs are as wide open as your sense of adventure. A weathered bar stool with a farmhouse feel may suit a soft grey wool rug just as well as an urban chic white metal stool – the decision lies with your overall style goals.

We constantly add rugs in many engaging colors and patterns to our offerings. Most of our indoor/outdoor rugs have a varied, hand-tufted loop construction which gives them a soft yet durable texture. The bold orange of the Tangerine Stripe Indoor/Outdoor Rug pairs perfectly with the Chippendale look Bamboo Club Chair, shown in Mandarin. This classy rattan chair with leather bindings comes in over 40 paint colors. The eye-catching Ravenna Indoor/Outdoor Rug in a tile print is shown with two color choices for the Grenada Ladderback Side Chair, which is also available as a barstool. The Chekat Grey Micro Hooked Rug also has a bold pattern, but comes in wool with a low profile, making it perfect for high-traffic areas. Paired with this chevron pattern rug is the Bridgetown Stool, which comes in two heights and 11 color choices, including one stain and one weathered look finish. All of our featured rugs are also available as runners.
