Mixing and matching Maine Cottage® fabric patterns can add a charming personality to your interior. Upholstered on furniture, like sofas, loveseats, occasional chairs, or accessories, like pillows and curtains, they’re lively and really bring a space to life. Our fabric patterns are exclusively designed by a talented team of artists and feature a variety of florals, geometric shapes, stripes, and solids.
This homeowner chose to incorporate three signature Maine Cottage® patterns in the great room of their coastal cottage. A fun pattern inspired by birdwatching, a radial floral pattern, and a smaller scale pattern with organic shapes.

A beautiful complement to any summer cottage or coastal home is comfortable, bright, and airy wicker. Maine Cottage® wicker is natural, durable, and available in 50 signature colors! Coordinate it with existing furniture pieces as fun accents or create an entire wicker retreat. Handcrafted by artisans, our wicker features unique details like intricate woven patterns, elegant aprons, and sturdy bases. From cocktail tables to sectional sofas to ottomans, we’re well-stocked in wicker.
We’re also pinning beautiful wicker furniture pieces on our Wicker by Maine Cottage® board. Take a peek, repin, and get some of the best and the brightest wicker.
Inspiration can come from almost anywhere. This week we chose to feature 3 our favorite ale labels as design inspiration. We asked 3 designers at Maine Cottage to pair an occasional chair and side table together based on their favorite beer label.
Blue Moon is a favorite ale of Maine Cottage’s Creative Director, Lauren Russell. The ale label inspired her to group the Adeline Arm Chair in Gimme-A-Ring / Marine with the Wendy Side Table in Almond Soy. The Adeline Arm Chair is a timeless chair that coordinates well with any design style. And, did you know that the pattern called Gimme-A-Ring was coincidentally inspired by the patina of drink rings on an antique side table? To bring it full circle, the pedestal on the Wendy Side Table follows the circular shape of the moon in the label and the fabric.
Duvel’s logo has a font that is very old world and strong. It carries the duo-tone palette of Tomato and Ale well. Our Interactive Director, Amber Shriver, selected the Hazel Chair because of its simple lines and very strong structure and chose to upholster it in Otto / Tomato . The Infinity Stool in Ale is the ideal height for a low profile occasional chair like Hazel. The best part? When you are done with your beer the Infinity Stool can be placed in front of the chair as a foot rest! We LOVE multifunctional pieces.
Senior Designer, Sarah Wright, chose the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale label for her inspiration. The label is traditional in style with a fresh lime green ground color. The label looks hand-crafted just like every piece of Maine Cottage Furniture. Notice the loops around the words “Purest Ingredients” and “Finest Quality”. The Camille Chair has classic, strong lines that mimic the lines of the label. Sarah placed the Camille Chair in our Leaflette / Ale fabric and painted it Wheatgrass. She pairs it with the Cecilia Tall End Table in Creamsicle. Refreshing color combination, wouldn’t you say?
What’s your favorite ale?

We appreciate how a recent Better Homes & Gardens “Big Style for Small Rooms” Special Interest Publication includes Maine Cottage mentions. The wicker table on the cover isn’t ours, but we’re listed as a source for similar wicker and rattan tables. We also found our Great Island Bookcase in an attractive home office. It looks like True Blue or Iris. And the popular wicker Bistro Chairs in Bluebell or Good Egg are enticing in a sunny dining space.

There are scads of ways to spoil your family’s Fido. A dog’s an important family member. An expression and extension of your personality, style and taste. The breed you choose, naming him/her, a handsomely original collar and leash… a pooch is fun to accessorize. And what better way than on a bed that fits in with your favorite Maine Cottage colors and home furnishings?

When February rolls around we see RED. Red is love. Love is red. We love red too and find great inspiration in red things. Everyday things that catch our eye, command our attention and often make us smile. There’s a comfort in red things. They’re full of life and energy. Even the most inanimate of objects is brought to life by red. At Maine Cottage we describe reds as Tomato, Rhubarb, Zinnia, Poppy, Shrimp, Smoothie and Teaberry. Each one with its own character – as a solid color and in our fabrics. And let’s face it, they are not subtle. Each red is full of warmth, depth and spirit. Even the smallest hint pops and emanates vitality. You may want to try reds at home.

Ale is what ales our Tulla Tuffet today. Light, hoppy and happy, the Maine Cottage color Ale exudes the same crisp, warm glow as these beloved brews. Neither a pure yellow nor true orange, Ale is sophisticated and complex. It radiates as a solid color and combines effortlessly with other like colors in fabrics. Fabulous with neutrals and contrasting blues or bluegreens too, I guess you might say Ale’s a truly uplifting, versatile color. Kind of like a fresh pint in a favorite brewpub.
Try a Tulla Tuffet, armchair or sofa in any one of the luminous Maine Cottage fabrics shown here. Ale illuminates wicker and rattan seat cushions too, but we’ll save that for another day. In case you’re curious about what you’re seeing here, we’ve shown the Tulla Tuffet in these fabrics (from top to bottom): Luxe Yuri ale, May Flower pickle, Stripe Tease ale, Really Rosie ale, Tweet Suite sun, Grand Mum clay and Hotty Dotty ale. Request a swatch or buy them by-the-yard.
