Get the Look: Relaxed Rustic
City dwellers lucky enough to come by a spacious apartment with exposed brick and floor-to-ceiling windows definitely have a head start on creating an urban oasis. But anyone can add elements of this effortlessly elegant pied-a-terre feel to their decor by studying the relaxed rustic space above. Borrow ideas like mixing traditional furniture with a primitive patterned rug as well as using a versatile slipcovered sofa as a time-tested gathering spot.
Vital to this inviting living room is a cottage-style slipcovered sofa. Offering a touch of refined style paired with a casual air, our Camden Slipcovered Sofa is perfect for dressing up with overstuffed pillows as you see fit. Available in a townhouse and regular size, this sofa is just one option from our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture Collection.
A classic wooden dresser is not just for the bedroom – it can serve as a timeless piece upon which to display an antique Asian vase. Our Wainscott 4 Drawer Dresser can be stained or painted in a few dozen hues, with several knob style options. Please peruse our Hamptons Furniture Collection for other coordinating pieces.
Sometimes finding one unique piece can give a room a whole new direction. We think the Honorine Demilune Console Table emanates a stately presence and a French flair – just the thing for capturing cottage chic. Several color options are available.
And for bringing everything together we suggest a lush wool-blend rug in neutral colors and a primitive pattern – the Numa Charcoal Hand Knotted Rug. A minimalist alternative to a traditional Oriental floor covering, the Numa is an apt option to complement the glowing wood floors of this renovated mill building space.
