Stanley Furniture European Cottage Bedroom


EUROPEAN COTTAGE BEDROOM IS ONE OF OUR MOST
POPULAR DESIGNS AND I THINK ONE OF THE REASONS WHY IT’S SO POPULAR IS BECAUSE IT’S CLASSIC.
IT HAS A LOT OF TRADITIONAL ELEMENTS BUT STYLISTICALLY IT’S VERY ON POINT FROM A TREND STANDPOINT.
THE NEUTRAL PALETTE THAT WE USE ALLOWS SOMEONE TO DECORATE IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT
WAYS BUT STILL MAINTAIN A FLOW OR A VIBE THROUGHOUT THEIR HOME. AND IT’S JUST VERY
FRESH AND FASHION FORWARD. THE EUROPEAN COTTAGE BEDROOM TAKES ITS DESIGN CUES FROM
NORTHERN ITALIAN AND FRENCH DESIGN INFLUENCE. YOU CAN TELL THAT INFLUENCE BECAUSE EACH CASE
IS UP ON LEGS. WE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL TAPERED AND TURNED LEG THAT HAS FLUTING DETAIL IN
IT. WE OFFER EACH PIECE IN TWO FINISHES, A CHALKBOARD BLACK FINISH AND THIS BEAUTIFUL
VANILLA WHITE FINISH THAT IS MULTIDIMENSIONAL. WE’VE GOT A LOT OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES THAT
GO ON, A LOT OF DIFFERENT HANDWORK. ELEMENTS THAT GO INTO ANY FINISH THAT THAT STANLEY
CREATES, AND IT REALLY CAN ONLY BE CREATED BY MASTER ARTISANS. THIS IS NOT FAST FURNITURE
THAT GETS MASS PRODUCED AT A LINE SPEED. THIS IS FURNITURE THAT IS INDIVIDUALLY PAINTED
AND TAKEN CARE OF BY MASTER ARTISANS, SO NO TWO ARE REALLY ALIKE. THE BEAUTIFUL WHITE
FINISH THAT WE HAVE HERE. IS KIND OF A CREAM TONE, WITH A LITTLE BIT OF A DUSTY HANGUP
IN THE CORNERS, THAT GIVES IT MORE OF A VINTAGE PATINA.
WE HAVE RAW RUB THROUGH AND AGING DETAILS ON ALL THE CORNERS. AND I THINK THAT’S REALLY
APPROPRIATE FOR AN ANTIQUE INSPIRED PIECE, YOU KNOW. PIECES THAT HAVE BEEN IN FAMILIES
FOR OVER A NUMBER OF YEARS GET LOVINGLY WORN OVER TIME. SO, WE WANTED TO REPLICATE THAT,
THAT VINTAGE KIND OF LOOK IN THE IN THE FINISH. EACH CORNER HAS A LITTLE BIT OF BLACK HANG
UP IN THE CORNERS, SO YOU SEE THAT KIND OF OLD HAND PAINTED LOOK,. LIKE THE PIECE HAD
BEEN HAND-PAINTED, AND THEN PAINTED OVER, AND WORN THROUGH OVER, OVER A SERIES OF GENERATIONS.
SO, THAT THAT VINTAGE LOOK WE, WE WENT FOR IS REALLY APPEALING TO A LOT OF PEOPLE.
THE HARDWARE IS PAINTED HARDWARE. HAND-PAINTED ON THE HARDWARE, SO IT’S NOT HARSH. IT DOESN’T
STAND OUT AND IT’S NOT JARRING. IT’S JUST VERY NEUTRAL, AND I THINK THAT’S PART OF THE
APPEAL OF THE COLLECTION ITSELF. ALSO, THE DESIGNS FEATURE A SERPENTINE FRONT ON THE
CASES, WHICH IS A NICE SOFTENING OF THE CASE FRONTS.
THAT’S SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD SEE IN A LOT OF EUROPEAN ANTIQUES. THE POST ARE CANTED
ON AN ANGLE SO IT GIVES THE CASE A LOT OF DIMENSION AS WELL. AND WE’VE GOT A NICE CASE
DEPTH SO IT HAS A PRESENCE IN A ROOM. THE HAND SCORING IN THE TOPS IS USED TO REFLECT
ALMOST A PLANK LOOK LIKE YOU WOULD SEE ON AN OLD FLOOR.
SO, A LOT OF ELEMENTS THAT YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHEN LOOKING AT A PIECE OF FURNITURE
THAT IS TRULY HANDMADE. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE REALLY WANNA PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO
IN THE DESIGN AND FINISHING OF OUR PIECES IS THE INTERIOR OF THE DRAWER. I THINK IT’S
IMPORTANT TO HAVE A NICE EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU OPEN THE DRAWER EVERY TIME YOU GO TO GET SOMETHING
OUT OF IT. SO, WE ALWAYS TRY TO FINISH THE INSIDE OF
OUR DRAWERS TO MARRY BACK TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE CASES. I THINK IT’S REALLY HARSH WHEN
YOU SEE RAW WOOD OR REALLY, REALLY ROUGH LOOKING DRAWER INTERIOR IN CONTRAST TO A BEAUTIFUL
DRAWER EXTERIOR. ON THE EUROPEAN COTTAGE BEDROOM, THE TOP RIGHT-HAND DRAWER FEATURES A LITTLE
CHANGE TRAY, WHICH IS A NICE LITTLE DETAIL. THAT IS A NOD TO JUST PAYING ATTENTION TO
THE WAY PEOPLE USE THEIR DRAWERS AND, AND LIVE WITH THE PIECE OF FURNITURE ON A DAY
TO DAY BASIS. SO EACH DRAWER IS, IS FINISHED TO MARRY IT BACK TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE CASE
AND WE THINK THAT’S A NICE LITTLE ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT WE’RE PROUD OF. THE CENTERPIECE
TO ANY BEDROOM IS OBVIOUSLY THE BED AND SO WE PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO OUR DESIGNS OF
BEDS. BECAUSE WE KNOW IT SETS THE TONE FOR THE DECOR OF THE ROOM. EUROPEAN COTTAGE BED
IS AN UPHOLSTERED PANEL BED IN AN OATMEAL LINEN FABRIC. IT FEATURES A SPIT TACK DETAIL
AROUND THE EDGE OF THE PANEL. EACH ONE OF THESE TACKS IS HAND-HAMMERED IN, AND THEY’RE
ALL IRREGULAR, SO NO TWO ARE EVER, EVER GONNA BE THE SAME. I LOVE THAT VINTAGE CONSTRUCTION
ELEMENTS AS DESIGN MOTIF IN THIS BED. IT REALLY SPEAKS TO THE DECONSTRUCTED OR RECLAIMED VINTAGE
LOOK, THAT WE ARE GOING FOR IN THE, IN THE DESIGN OF THE PATTERN.
