Colder longer nights call for comfort and cosiness and our living rooms should strike the perfect balance of warmth and style to help us feel cosseted away from the outside world. Modish Living, the furniture destination for rustic, reclaimed and sustainably sourced wood furniture, has selected five of its most stand-out pieces that are guaranteed to enhance the snug-factor of any living room.

1. Eastwood Rustic Oak Large Sideboard

Crafted in solid European oak, the modern shape and natural texture of this large sideboard have autumnal style written all over it. The eye-catching parquet design on the cupboard doors highlights the beautiful varying tones of the wood that differ from piece to piece, whilst bringing a touch of contemporary mid-century style. This large sideboard will add warmth to a neutral palette or bring added depth to a darker colour scheme.

For smaller living rooms the matching Eastwood Rustic Oak Highboard will fill an empty alcove and create an inviting space.

2. Farringdon Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table

A living room staple, the coffee table centres the room and provides an opportunity to add character and personality. The Farringdon coffee table is handcrafted and hand-finished using 100% FSC-certified reclaimed wood rescued from old buildings and is rich in rustic features. With two large wooden drawers that can be opened from both sides of the table, this piece has a wonderful Saltash grey finish to accentuate the natural grain and individual tones visible in the wood. The layered texture of the wood conjures up feelings of contentment and relaxation, ideal for a cosy space.

3.. Barkby Leather Sofa

No cosy living room is complete without a squishy couch to sink into. The Barkby Leather Sofa invites you to snuggle in its super soft Italian aniline leather and embrace the change of the season. The warming tones of the brown leather are wonderfully tactile and real leather is one of the few materials that aesthetically improves with age. Even as new it bears the original hallmarks of the hides, such as scars, branding marks and creases, but over the years, the Barkby will become part of the family.

4. Luxe Kensington Nest of Tables

Comfy doesn’t have to be plain as this stunning nest of tables demonstrates. A stylish space saver and perfect for snugs or smaller living rooms, this round nest of tables has been crafted from reclaimed railway sleepers with all the twists and turns of its former life beautifully celebrated in the rustic wood. Available with or without a solid glass top, the black metal frame complements the character of the wood, whilst adding to the industrial vibe of the piece.

5. Ironbridge Industrial Reclaimed TV Stand

Nothing beats curling up on the sofa to watch a movie on a cold evening and this rustic TV stand brings a comfy charm to what is essentially a modern piece of furniture. Crafted in solid 100% reclaimed wood, each stand is unique and will vary in tone and character with splits, nail holes and markings from its previous life clearly visible in the wood.

Modish Living was founded by a husband and wife team in 2012 with the idea to create an online boutique selling handpicked, beautifully crafted reclaimed wood furniture. In a short space of time, their small seed of an idea outgrew the kitchen table to become the online store you see today, offering not just reclaimed furniture, but rustic and sustainably sourced pieces from the UK and around the world. In 2021, Modish Living acquired new owners who continue to uphold the company’s passion for high-quality reclaimed and sustainably sourced furniture for the home.
