Client Spotlight: Mountain Cabin Coffee Table

Our gorgeous antique-inspired new Glenbrook coffee table turned out to be the perfect choice for John and Mindy’s mountain cabin in Landrum, S.C.

This is the new Glenbrook coffee table, item BG-428 in our online store. It is a four-foot-wide round coffee table in solid wood with a rustic pecan hand-planed finish.  It is also available with a darker rustic pecan finish and an antiqued black finish. Either way it is a beautifully sturdy coffee table with wonderful Old World appeal. So let’s meet John and Mindy…

Glenbrook Coffee Table

John and Mindy have recently moved to South Carolina from Texas, and they are now nestling into their new home in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Doesn’t it look like a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful natural environment and great views?

Mountain Cabin Home

John is a baseball and golf fanatic and he has been busy designing his “man nook” in the downstairs. With a handsome curved sectional in the corner, he and Mindy thought that a round coffee table with a bit of a rustic style fit the bill perfectly!  Enter the Glenbrook table, which has just the right amount of distressing to look right at home in a mountain cabin.

Mountain Cabin living room

To the right of the sofa is a smart display case with a black finish that proudly displays John’s collection of baseball and golf treasures and trophies, while a vintage black-framed photograph of a golfer adds to the ambiance. What a comfortable spot kick up your feet and peruse the newspaper, read a good book, or watch a baseball or golf game on TV on a Saturday afternoon! The Glenbrook coffee table fits right in! Supported by sturdy and attractively shaped legs, the round table features a shaped lower shelf that adds to the visual interest.

The table is perfect for anyone who has traditional Old World taste but lives a relaxed American lifestyle, and we hope that John enjoys it for many years to come!

Bookshelf: Cabin Decor and Rustic Retreats

I’ve been browsing some of the latest books on cabin decor and rustic retreats, as spring approaches and the idea of getting away to the great outdoors is very tempting. I bet I’m not the only one with cabin fever after this long winter, so check out these new titles. They give plenty of cabin decor ideas and inspiration for your vacation home or mountain lodge.  Even if you aren’t lucky enough to have a rural retreat, some of the design ideas could be incorporated into your home.

Back to the Cabin: More Inspiration for the Classic American Getaway

Cabin Decor in Back to the CabinArchitect and cabin expert Dale Mulfinger’s first book on cabins was so popular, he’s back with another one. A simple (or not so simple!) cabin in the woods is part of the American dream, and the 37 cabins featured in this book remind us why. It’s all about natural charm and traditional values. The cabins range from tiny rustic retreats to restorations and fancier cabins. The book’s photos give good ideas for all kinds of cabin decor as well as extras like saunas and gorgeous porches. Building your own dream cabin? There are floor plans too!

Cabin decor and hideawaysIf your wilderness hideaway is a small one, you’ll get some great tips from author Vinny Lee. This book covers all kinds of tiny treasures, from cabins (naturally) to mountain chalets, renovated grain stores, boats, Airstream trailers, and even treehouses! There’s a real do-it-yourself spirit in these intimate and individualistic spaces. As Design NJ Magazine said in a review, the book is “a dreamer’s guide to getting away from it all”

 

 

Chalets: Trendsetting Mountain Treasures

Chalets decor and designChalets have evolved from simple herdsmen’s huts in the mountains of the Swiss Alps into something far more lavish today. But even the most upscale Aspen chalet is designed to blend with the mountain landscape in a way that stays true to the humble roots. With 700 photographs, this hefty book takes an armchair journey around chalets of the world, from Austria and France to Japan and South America. And Aspen, Colorado, of course! The stunning images of gorgeous interiors are very enticing, from streamlined modern chalets to rustic and historic beauties.
