Maine Cottage in House Beautiful We happily discovered our Windsor Arm Chairs in the February 2011 issue of House Beautiful in an article “Light & Bright” about the makeover of a “Cape Cod-style cottage” in Venice, CA by interior designer Alexandra Angle. Angle refers to the newly finished house as being “young, light, and happy”, which is exactly how we like to characterize the Maine Cottage style. Read an interview with Angle about the project. See some of the light, airy rooms below.

Maine Cottage Windsor Armchairs

“It’s like one of those long, beautiful ribbon candies in white and blue, with yellow stripe. It’s young, light, and happy. Houses need to make you experience a feeling, and each room should tell a story.”
- Alexandra Angle, House Beautiful

“The whole point was to have something that would show wear and tear, like those older East Coast country houses. That’s why I like painted furniture that will distress with elegance. It’s not going to look worse as dirty hands touch it.”
- Alexandra Angle, House Beautiful

Maine Cottage Monty Sleeper Sofa

Everyone enjoys the versatility and practicality of a Sleeper Sofa. Each one is custom-upholstered in the Maine Cottage fabric of your choice. And these are not the lumpy, bar-in-your-back sleepers. They’re are among the finest, cushiest and most supportive you’ll find. We have several other styles too to suit your taste and space. Turn any room into a guest room in Maine Cottage style.

Let the wild rumpus start! Children, grandchildren, sleepovers, family and friends. Having enough beds can be a challenge. Having solid, safely built beds that can withstand juvenile antics can be an even greater challenge. Maine Cottage Shutter Bunk Beds solve all of the above…and below.

Made with weighty maple and indestructible construction methods, these beds nest together with strength and presence – in your choice of 40 Maine Cottage colors.

Versatility is yet another virtue: the bunk beds may be stacked together with top side rails and a ladder or peeled apart into two twin beds – sans the side rails or ladder. That is, two Shutter UTE Beds. UTE is our acronym for “Under The Eaves”. The UTE headboard is shorter (8″) than our standard Shutter Bed.

Maine Cottage Bunk Room

Shutter UTE beds are perfect for older homes with tricky angles, dormers and alcoves. And less space-consuming for bunk and guest rooms. They come in full and queen sizes too – to fit more monkeys in a bed. Yes, let the wild rumpus start!

Is the word “hammock” enough to bring a smile to your face? A sense of peace and relaxation? It’s an iconic image of SUMMER. Free floating, suspended midair without a worry in the world. Bare feet. Soaking up the sun or keeping cool in the shade of trees. Hammock is synonymous with simplicity. Siesta. Easy living. Fun.

Maine Cottage Maine Cottage

Hence the name Hammock for these Maine Cottage fabrics. Textural, cool and relaxed, Hammock fabrics are constructed for carefree indoor and outdoor use. Hammock’s a hardy synthetic fabric with a relaxed feeling (or “hand”) and protected by spill and stain-resistant Nano-tex. Easy to care for and easy to live with – in beautiful Maine Cottage colors. How’s that for simplicity?

Paula lives here along the coast of Maine where she has worked with us for two years to assemble this bright, beautiful living area – piece by piece and fabric by fabric. She’s very proud and excited about the outcome. And so are we! Here’s a great picture from her.

Maine Cottage look

What an invitingly warm and colorful living space! We love her choice of a Maine Cottage Adeline Sofa, Simon Chair and Ruben Hassock in Rambler and Just Dandy print fabrics with painted Fiddlehead End and wicker Cooper tables. A Tulip Lamp by Jill Rosenwald in a simple, proportionate form with coordinating colors adds interest. The repetition of soft greens, yellows with some red pull the whole area together with ease. Congratulations, Paula! Thanks for sharing.
