Maybe it is the crispness to the air, or the way the sun shines that puts a little zip into life. Suddenly there is time--or maybe just the inclination--to get things done. So make a list; it doesn't have to be huge: wallpaper the powder room, take the wallpaper out of the dining room. If you have to warn people about your chairs before they sit down--no maybe--new chairs should be on the list. Hate your kitchen table? Then do something about it. Give it to your kids or the Salvation Army and get something that makes you happy...it's your house--enjoy it!
The great thing about decorating in the 21st century is there are no rules...if you like vintage and he likes modern--no sweat--it is the mix that matters...black and white photography, pretty lamps, some no nonsense servers, a casual chair and a great farmhouse table.
If you put a more casaual table in the dining room you might actually use it. Life is stressful enough that you shouldn't have to worry about staging your meals. Forget the table pads and the table cloths, big old upholstered chairs and dated carpet. Simplify your seating, get down to your hardwoods or go buy something sea grass for the floor and invite your friends over. Now.
Chances are if you found our web site your house is already amazing! But when we go to peoples' homes we often see a pile up of papers in the kitchen or on the dining room table...This lovely solid walnut copy of an antique French writing table may be just the answer: giving you a decorative but still functional spot to pay bills, write a letter or read your email.
The classic pine farmhouse table is back! It's not that we lost our way; it's just that there is only so much room in our store. Anyway this is in stock and there are more in the warehouse...we can paint the bases or leave them natural. The one shown in the photo is 78"w x 42"d x 30"h.
CLOSED SUNDAYS AND MONDAYS!!!!
After 27 years of being open 7 days a week, we decided it was time to take some days off.
We are open Tuesday through Saturday 10 to 5.
If those hours don't work for you, please call the store, 732 530 0685, to make an appointment. We can meet you there almost any time. (And at the risk of confusing matters, we are often here on Sundays and Mondays so if you are in the neighborhood you can stop by or give us a call and see if we are, indeed, at the store...)
And please remember at British Cottage we decide what we stock:Whether it is our design, antique, or a bench made reproduction, our furniture
Because we spent a good part of the last twenty eight years buying container loads of antique European furniture, we are really good at finding the newly made items that are unique and special--before they get copied and dumb-downed by the big chain stores and catalogues. Whether traveling in England or on the continent or at market in North Carolina it is classic style, weathered wood and handmade construction that appeals to us.
While we miss the absolute uniqueness of an antique piece, we appreciate the stability, functionality and pricing that comes with new furniture.
We like to think we are selling the antiques of tomorrow.
We offer free local delivery service and charge just our costs for deliveries farther away.
We also can arrange long distance moves for you.
