French Inspiration for Your Country Home

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

On this day in 1889, construction on the Eiffel Tower concluded in Paris, making it the tallest structure in the world (until the Empire State Building surpassed it in 1930). This monument to the French Revolution is an iconic symbol of both the city and country it calls home, which have also provided an abundance of inspiration in home design all around the world.

French country home accents are high on our favorites list, so to celebrate this Eiffel Tower anniversary, we have selected a beautiful French country kitchen and charming French country dining room to show you how easy it is to decorate in this style (and you can find many similar accent pieces shown in the photos right here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop).

Traditional Kitchen by Louisville Kitchen & Bath Designers Mike Smith / Artistic Kitchens

The Cabinetry is ornate, rustic and richly stained, surrounding the room in traditional French Country style and enhancing the cheerful French blue accents. The High Back Stools feature seagrass seats and the beautiful carved details turn these bar stools into elegant thrones. It’s hard not to notice the French blue Lantern Chandeliers which offer an old world feel and plenty of light via candelabra bulbs. Our eyes were drawn to the antiqued Wall Clock above the sunny window; the roman numerals and distressed appearance create an appealing primitive look that is perfect for a French Country kitchen. The Rooster Sculpture on the beautiful white island enhances the country charm while being detailed enough to fit in with the rest of the room.

Farmhouse Dining Room by Scottsdale Architects & Building Designers Higgins Architects

This dining room is a little more rustic, but you can see similarities with the previous room in the high back chairs with seagrass seats and antiqued furniture complemented by the ornate chandelier. Even the distressed hutch is finished in a pale French blue, and fabric ties on the chair pads are lush and complete an overall elegant look to the room.

Classic Home Furnishings for the New Year

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

A new year calls for reflection, resolutions, a crisp calendar, forgetting to remember to write the new year instead of the old, and gives you an excuse (if you need one) for redecorating and freshening up your home decor! Seating and simple furniture pieces are a great way to create a new but comfortable look for any room in your home; whether you are looking to accent some of your favorite decorative pieces or want to redo a whole room.

Dining Room Farmhouse Ladderback Chair Set
Perhaps in this room more than any other, your seating is not only functional but ornamental as well. The chairs and table must stand up to daily use, as well as impress as a standalone piece when you are entertaining guests. Our new Farmhouse Ladderback Chairs offer elegance with a tall back and tapered legs for a formal dining room, but also give off a rustic appeal with a versatile oak stain for country-styled dining rooms or smaller dining areas. Use with your current dining table or mix and match with one of ours to create a signature dining room look.

Sturbridge Exclusive Saddle Stools

Kitchen Incorporating seating into your kitchen is a great way to create an inviting atmosphere, no matter how small or large the room. Our Sturbridge Exclusive Saddle Stools feature contoured seating for ultimate comfort, and come in a variety of colors to compliment your already established kitchen decor. In addition to the 24″ counter and 30″ bar heights, we offer an 18″ Saddle Stool that can be used alongside the other heights, creating an appealing, multi-level look. If you’re looking for a more antiquated style, our Colonial Stools withColonial Stoolsrounded legs feature a sea grass seat and are offered in three primitive colors. Colonial Stools are a great option for smaller kitchen areas, but will add charm in any space you put them.

Living Room
Sturbridge Exclusive Stafford Chair & OttomanAdding furniture that is both comfortable and stylish to a living room can sometimes be a challenge. It may not always be easy to find complementary furniture pieces that fit in or fill up a room, but adding a simple chair or recliner -either in a print or solid color- can create charming contrast while offering a comfortable place to relax. Our Sturbridge Exclusive Stafford Chair is a classic choice for a cozy corner or main area in a living room, and paired with the matching Ottoman, is a luxurious resting place that can be enjoyed by you and your guests. If a recliner is more your style, our Parlor Upholstered Pushback Recliner offers the same luxurious comfort as our Stafford Chair & Ottoman
but in a single unit: just push back, curl up and relax.

Entryways and hallways give you an excellent opportunity to introduce guests to the style and beauty of your home, although with limited space it can be difficult to effectively do so. For these small spaces, it is best to incorporate as much functions with your furniture as possible. A fixture like our Entryway Storage Rack & Bench features hooks for hanging jackets, bags or keys; while the shelf below the bench is a great for shoe or slipper storage. The cushion is a tasteful enhancement, and provides you with a comfortable resting place for taking off Sturbridge Exclusive Cubby Storage Bench in Stainor putting on shoes. If you want a simpler country look with a more out-of-sight storage solution, a piece like our Sturbridge Exclusive Cubby Storage Bench is a timeless option, and added totes allow you to neatly put your belongings out of sight while maintaining a stylish hall or entryway.
