Shabby Chic Style

Wednesday, 7 January 2015

If you’re a fan of the shabby chic style for your home, then we have a great selection of furniture and accessories that will really help you achieve this stylish look. Both our Gypsy and Maison ranges are mango wood finished with a painted, slightly distressed finish. The Coast range would also really suit a shabby chic style with a whitewash finish combined with a natural waxed finish to draw fronts and table tops.  The shabby chic style looks can create a really relaxed and romantic look with lightly distressed furniture

These three ranges are all crafted from mango hardwood  and so are truly sustainable as the mango tree is first grown for fruit production.  At around 6 to 8 years, when it is past its commercial life for mango production, the tree is felled and the timber is crafted into furniture.

Gypsy Range – Aqua Shades of mango
Our Gypsy range has been going from strength to strength since it was launched 18 months ago. Mango hardwood is hand-painted in a mellow aqua wash and then hand distressed to create a lovely shabby chic look and feel. The aqua colour of the gypsy range lends itself perfectly to the bevelled tops, wavy plinths and antiqued metal knobs which characterise the range and give a subtle shabby chic feel.

Maison Range - French Styling in lime-washed mango

The Maison range was introduced autumn 2014 and has been a great success with new products being added this spring to add to the range. Inspired by French style and features cabriole legs and carved detailing finished with a lime-washed effect for a soft appearance. This romantic range includes renaissance styling with a gentle lime wash finish to create the perfect shabby chic finish.

Coast Range – Whitewash mango with hand waxed warmth
Along with the Maison range, the Coast range was introduced Spring 2014 and has so far proven to be very popular. With contrasting warm wax and weathered whitewash finishes, this range is quintessentially country in styling. Made in Rajasthan, India from mango wood the coast range features antiqued cup handles and sleek hand waxed tops and drawer fronts. The Coast range would sit perfectly in any shabby chic styled home.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match your furniture. Part of the shabby chic charm is that the different styles and  pieces of furniture look great together. So team your favourite antique side table with a shabby chic styled coffee table and TV unit to create a relaxed, eclectic look. However you style you shabby chic home, it will create a relaxed and comfortable feel that is perfect for a busy home.
