There’s no question that distressed wood furniture has come out strong in all the polls for design trends this year. This laid-back, unfinished look of purposeful imperfections lends a rustic appearance to wooden furniture. This almost immediately gives a refreshingly relaxed and comforting ambiance to any room in the house.
This well sought-after design element on luxury furniture conveys a more subtle elegance that requests a quiet admiration. Many enjoy the appearance of distressed finishes for its unique style and character. Purposeful indentations, rubbed-off paint, and softly weathered finishes are just a few distress elements to create that well-worn, loved and antique appearance.
The Hatfield Living Room set pictured bears a softly distressed Alabaster finish with delicate wood carvings throughout. The light wood finish adds a serene touch to this set, while soft shades of taupe and beige on accent pillows and cushioning add just the right amount of cozy charm.
These imperfect yet refined features generate an aesthetic that will have you feeling like you’ve just stepped into a cottage in the English countryside.
