In the era of “being Green” it’s worth mentioning that linen fibers (from parent plant Flax) are relatively environmentally sound. Flax requires fewer pesticides and fertilizers than cotton, for example, and is ecologically-correct as every piece of the Flax plant is used in the linen production process. There’s no waste. This, or course, is not to mention how many years of pleasing beauty and enjoyment linen will provide for you and your home. More on Maine Cottage linen (PDF)

Wicker and rattan are among the most beloved and versatile materials for casual furniture inside and out on a (very) well-covered porch. Intricate and geometric weaving patterns in classic styles have a wonderfully recognizable familiarity. One that goes well with iced tea and the Sunday paper. The June 2010 issue of This Old House magazine mentions our Maine Cottage Stella Armchair in this context as a modern day example of that relaxed, vintage summer porch look. Maine Cottage Celadon is an attractive garden green. We also have 39 other colors and +200 fabrics to choose from.

Our bold, graphic Grand Mum fabric celebrates the joy of flowers. A source of color and texture in patterns and surface design dating back to Renaissance Europe (and beyond), flowers were typical in wallpapers, textiles and tilework. Fresh, original Maine Cottage Grand Mum artwork gives a nod to history, but takes it up a notch with modern day pluck. Who can resist its happy profusion of colorful blooms?

Chances are good your mother, grandmother or even great grandmother sat in a wicker chair like this one. Creaky with chipping paint and a faded seat cushion, its been at the summer cottage for as long as anyone can remember. A piece of the cottage’s history and its endearing character. A summer ritual passed generation to generation.

Birds are a favorite element of design in vintage decorative textiles and wallpaper. Fresh and pert, they possess a surprising vitality and easily recognizable forms. Singing cheerfully from a branch, in sudden flight, or flitting playfully from tree to tree, birds are intriguing to behold. It’s from these historic images, our own mind’s eye, images we’ve gathered and sketched, then combined with Maine Cottage color that we designed Tweet Suite. Tweet Suite is a modern day Maine Cottage favorite in 6 colorways printed on linen.
