Modern Country Style

A new interpretation of the country house style

We Do Wood - Field Folding Table

Large rooms, natural materials and a lot of wood - the rustic flair and down-to-earth quality is what fascinates us about the country house style. Combined with the linear furniture of our neighbours from the north, natural colours and new materials, a modern ambience is created that enriches the country house idyll with a few new ideas and strong highlights.

The country house style satisfies the longing for fresh air, the smell of freshly mowed meadows and shady woods - in short: Deceleration and relaxation from everyday life. Those who lack corners and edges in this idyll can now create their very own modern country charm. Because today the robust country house flair meets the contrasts of industrialisation: Old meets new, proven materials are combined with new ones.

How to Achieve the Modern Country House Style:

4. The Right Tableware for the Final Touch

Materials for the Modern Country House Style

The country house style - whether classic or modern - relies on nature! Get your hands on natural materials such as wood, stone, ceramics and clay. Natural fibres such as cotton, linen and leather not only impress with their organic and hand-crafted character, but they are also durable, skin-friendly and visually captivating with their unique structure. Each piece of leather, linen or ceramic is unique.

Natural materials live. It is precisely the traces of years of use that give the country house style its special character. They are shown, even when they age, and tell stories of their owners. Combine these materials with cast iron and concrete; just as wood represents the rustic style, these materials will provide contrast and depth.

2. Nature-Inspired Furniture with Rustic Elements

The country house style relies heavily on furniture made of wood. In addition to the classic, popular oak wood, bamboo is gaining in popularity. The warm tone and the delicate grain help to create a cosy setting in the living room - perfect for the country house idyll. Anyone who finds wood too one-sided will be delighted with the new furniture: Contrasting elements of steel and cast iron loosen up the natural colour and add playful undertones. Magis demonstrates this with his Officina dining table.

It is clear that designers are inspired by furniture archetypes such as milking stools, farm chairs or the English Windsor Chair. The forms are re-invented without frills, but still with great respect for traditional craftsmanship.

3. Country House Decoration - These Accessories Conjure Up that Countryside

The country house charm can be brought home with just a few rustic accessories. Candlesticks, vases and bowls with signs of wear, faded colours and rough surfaces support the country style. Materials such as stoneware and terracotta bring these properties with them by nature and are therefore particularly suitable for country house decoration. Stoneware in particular is more topical today than ever.

Flowery or simple and natural - the modern country style is flexible and the market offers new tableware to your taste. At Marimekko and Bjørn Wiinblad you will find porcelain and kitchen textiles with floral print, that will give that summery feel to your city apartment. Crockery made of earthenware and terracotta, on the other hand, together with a colourful bouquet of field flowers, gives a lovely natural flair to the table.
