Wood Furniture For An Autumn At The Cottage

August 7th, 2017 Blog

Is there anything more luxurious than spending cool autumn evenings away from the city and up at the cottage? While many wrap up their cottage weekends after Labour Day, you can appreciate quiet on the lake while the leaves turn bright red and orange in a spectacular display. Cozy up when the nights get cool with a board game or a book and you can really appreciate the pleasures of an autumn weekend spent in cottage country. It’s also a great season for hosting guests, especially with the traffic coming to the city dying down and holidays like Thanksgiving on the horizon.

One thing you may want to consider to prepare your cottage for a relaxing autumn out of town is new furniture. Solid wood furniture is a great addition to cottages and wood cabins; it fits the décor of wooden walls, beams, and decks, and it’s durable. Once you bring solid wood furniture from Woodcraft into your cottage, you won’t have to think about replacing it for decades. Another advantage of solid wood is that it stands up to abuse; whether you’re carving pumpkins or inviting guests for dinner, a solid wood dining table will hold up to dents and scratches. Inevitably, they will accumulate, but solid wood is sturdy enough to be refinished, and Woodcraft craftsmen also refinish furniture by hand, never soaking pieces, a process that can degrade glue joints.

You may also want to consider checking out wood bedroom sets to add warmth, comfort, and romance to the master bedroom. Wood in your environment is known to reduce stress and lower blood pressure, which is why it’s so popular in the design of cottages and cabins where people come to relax and forget about the daily stress of the city and their work. Help yourself relax by improving your surroundings with wood furniture, especially where you sleep.

One of the major obstacles to replacing furniture at the cottage is getting it up there; that’s why Woodcraft delivers all across Ontario and North America. Dock-to-dock delivery makes delivery an affordable option, while we also offer white glove delivery, which includes assembly in your home. We strive to make your custom wood furniture order easy by taking the stress out of delivery.

Once you have your new dining table and wood furniture, there are so many different ways you can decorate it with rustic centrepieces and classic autumn motifs like pumpkins and oakleaf hydrangeas to make your cottage feel like a fairy tale in the woods. With so much to celebrate in the autumn, from Oktoberfest and Halloween to Thanksgiving, you won’t find any shortage of ideas for great meals or decorations.
