4 Great Cottage Furniture Ideas For The Summer

June 17th, 2017 Blog

With summer in full-swing, many Torontonians can’t wait for the weekends to get out of the city and up to their cottages and vacation homes by the beach. But if you feel like the furnishings at your vacation home are a little worn-out or mismatched, it can distract you from your number one job up there: relaxing. When people first buy their cottages, furniture is often an after-thought. But once you’ve settled in, it’s time to upgrade and we have some great ideas for custom wood furniture you will be proud to show guests.

#1 Custom Wood Dining Table

A custom wood dining table will be a fantastic addition to any cottage country home or beach house. Vacation homes are great places to have guests over for a weekend and to impress your guests with great dinners. Fire up the grill, bust out a sumptuous red wine, and enjoy it all on a solid wood dining table built to impress.

#2 Country Bedroom Collection

A rustic wood bed and matching side table and wardrobe will complete the rural, countryside feeling of any beach house or Muskoka cottage. Pine wood and warm, rustic browns that show off the grain and knots will bring a rustic feeling to your bedroom and help you shake off the feeling of the city. We can make it in single, double, queen, or king sizes, high or low.

#3 Live Edge Island or Breakfast Table

Few things are as cottage-y as a breakfast nook by east-facing windows that will let the early morning sunlight in, casting a shadow of leaves gently swaying in the breeze. You can always request a quote for Woodcraft custom designs like our live edge table using industrial legs. It’s the perfect kitchen island for hors d’oeuvres and a glass of wine or a breakfast nook where you can enjoy coffee and a book on a long weekend.

#4 A-Frame Bookcase

Another one of our custom designs, this A-Frame bookcase marries the country-feel of Canadian maple wood shelves with a black frame. It makes the perfect cottage or city display case and it’s truly unique – we made the design for the TV show Property Brothers on HGTV and we would be happy to make one for you.

In case you’re still on the fence about buying custom wood furniture, just take a look at testimonials from past clients to see what they have to say about us and our products. Buying custom wood furniture is an investment and we take it as our responsibility to guarantee that you’re satisfied with your decision. We do what we do at Woodcraft because we love quality and craftmanship, working with wood and building something that can last forever, but we also do it because we want to bring our clients excitement, joy, and surprise when their handcrafted furniture is delivered to their doorstep. The reason we keep doing it decade after decade is because there are too few places where people can find quality furniture to last a lifetime.
