Brown furniture


“There seems to be a general shift from the Scandinavian, monochrome interiors aesthetic, to a richer, more textured style which features an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage and contemporary pieces,” say Emily and Victoria Ceraudo, co-founders of vintage furniture store Ceraudo. “We have always loved antiques as a nation, however, now brown furniture is having a come-back and people are overjoyed to be using beautifully, well-made pieces with lots of details and history without the stuffy stereotype.”

How to incorporate it at home:

“A contemporary dining table with antique rush seat dining chairs also works nicely; little mahogany or walnut side or lamp tables; or a brown and glass cabinet to store kitchen or bathroom items in always look very chic. We can never get enough antique bedside cabinets – these are a lovely way to make a bedroom feel more cosy and traditional. Brown furniture with marble top surfaces are also a fantastic way of bridging the gap between old and new; walnut bedside tables with carrara marble tops definitely tick the antique box, but also feel fresh and not too dark.”
