home made Living Rooms

Maine Cottage

“It’s not houses that I love, it’s the life I live in them.”

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

Maine Cottage

Living in your house requires rooms. Rooms made to live in. It may seem obvious, but so often “living” is overlooked for how a room “looks”. Truth is, the living rooms in your house are what you make of them. So make them versatile. Create places to relax with family and friends, read and rest. Create a home.

The important thing is this: Let how YOU want to live in your home be your guide in decorating. It’s all about personal needs and priorities. We’re a little biased at Maine Cottage toward invitingly casual, lighthearted, flexible rooms of great practicality. Multigenerational living spaces that’ll withstand many years of the wear, tear and fun of spending time together. Would you expect anything less? And take our word for it, living in rooms you love is what “home” is all about.

you wood Love Ogden

30 Dec

Our new Ogden Collection looks a bit different for Maine Cottage, but beneath its beachy brushed finish are the same native, natural materials as the rest of our wood furniture. The maple, butternut, cherry, and now oak used to build Maine Cottage furniture are grown and re-grown sustainably here in the USA. Prized by furniture makers, flooring mills and squirrels alike, oak trees are a majestic and fruitful resource. The definition of weighty hardness and enduring strength.

A pronounced grain is the most distinguishing aesthetic feature of oak. These “natural defects” are the varied, tapered grain patterns that remind us of the “real” qualities of wood furniture. Its unique character. Our Ogden collection does not have an oak veneer (thin slices of oak or uniform synthetic panels glued to a less expensive wood frame) to peel or bubble. Ogden is benchmade with solid wood and premium hardware to last a good long time.


Ogden pieces are substantial with an inherent resistance to moisture, insects, fungus, and general aging. Perfect for coastal and humid climates – like the rest of our furniture. Best of all, oak grain patterns readily accept our Ivory and Milk brushed finish for the vintage beach house, summer cottage, summery aesthetic we so love. Yes, you wood love Ogden.

ho ho ho from Ontario

20 Dec

Just in from a customer are several images of a sparkling condo in snowy Ontario, Canada filled with Maine Cottage color and fabric. Cathy Earle worked with Annie in our West Palm Beach, Florida store to purchase many yards of Maine Cottage fabric and breathe new life into upholstered and wicker furniture she already owns.

We love her choice of Maine Cottage colors and how she mixed and matched Ann’s Labyrinth with Hotty Dotty patterns and solids to unify this space. White bricks, white trim, painted furniture and walls complete this joyful composition. How great to have a “Maine Cottage” in Canada. Love the stockings too!

Nina is a gracefully petite Armchair, Swivel Chair and Sofa with pleasing roundness and a plump seat. A perennial favorite in our stores, Nina’s attractive in any of our 200 Maine Cottage fabric choices – and particularly festive in our zinnia Dilly and Leaflette prints, so we thought we’d share.

A sofa that multitasks is a beautiful thing. It’s handsome seating by day, then voila! It’s a supremely comfortable bed by night. What better way to maximize efficiency in your living space? A Maine Cottage sleeper sofa turns a den, home office, study, playroom, or any space into a guest bedroom. The versatility and practicality of a Monty Sleeper Sofa (shown above in sprout Luxe Loop) are invaluable. Especially when your children come home from school or visit with their own children…

“Divan” is a funny old word for uncomfortably formal, sofa-like seating (below). A Maine Cottage Venus Love (above) is something entirely different. Something divine. And just as alluring as its namesake. It’s curvaceous and sumptuous seating for living spaces of every kind. Yes, fit for a goddess in your choice of 200 heavenly fabrics. Made in USA.

7 Dec

Maine Cottage Otto fabric is a favorite around here. Our Design Consultants and customers love its textural, fine-waled, ribbed surface. These
100% weighty cotton fabrics in rich hues are very appealing. And now we’ve added five more color choices
for a total of fifteen. Each of them coordinates easily with the rest of our paint and fabric colors. Spill and stain-resistant Nano-Tex fabric protection keeps them fresh and pristine for a good long time. You Otto try it…
