This autumn the line between the indoors and out is more blurred than ever, as rustic furniture continues to be a leading trend in interiors.

It’s stylish grown-up recycling with an urban vibe and is perfect for people who like informality, spontaneity and finding the joy in natural materials.

This season’s new take on Rustic Reloaded at Barker and Stonehouse features a mix of recycled industrial pieces, handcrafted rugs, patterned cushions and metal chairs for the ultimate in rough luxe.

The best thing about this look is that you can embrace the trend by incorporating one or two statement pieces into your home, without the need for an entire revamp.

Start with an eye-catching piece like the Bleecker 8 drawer sideboard – this unique product is made from recycled woods and iron and has a distinctive natural charm that will suit any living room.

Group smaller pieces together or let larger ones stand alone, and accessorise with products such as vases in similar colours or impressive large table lamps.

The Bronze finish hinged desk lamp in particular is the perfect accompaniment and will cast a spotlight on your most striking pieces of furniture.


This industrial looks carries on into the dining space, which combines masculine wooden tables and cabinets with distressed iron chairs for a super stylish juxtaposition.

Partner the San Quentin Tahoe Rectangular Dining Table, made from reclaimed pine for a country hideaway feel, with the Bleecker dining chairs in blue for an interesting look that will get all your dinner guests talking.

This arrangement would work well on a polished concrete floor or against a whimsical backdrop.  Graham and Brown’s Mirage wallpaper gives the illusion that you’re entertaining alfresco and can help tie the whole look together.

Also don’t be afraid of mixing-and-matching patterns and fabrics.  The key is to remember to keep the base material tactile with an edge of rawness.

Try combining leather couches, like the Dillon 2 seater high back sofa, with textured rugs, like the Cowhide in white and brown, for a tough and trendy look that will have timeless appeal for years to come.

And finally a beautiful piece of artwork can provide the finishing touch to an empty wall space.  The “Please Accept This Drawing” piece by Rebecca Puig is handmade from reclaimed wood and is a great way to add some rustic charm to any room.  Position it on its own, or in an arrangement with other pieces of art, for a modern take on the recycled trend.
