Nina Chair in Maine Cottage Dilly

Nina in Leaflette with a Dilly pillow

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.

Maine Cottage Monty Sleeper Sofa

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…

the 3 C's? Coastal Condo Comfort in Palm Beach, Florida

10 Dec

When you live in the Northeast, the thought of a winter retreat is very appealing. Lois and David of Long Island, New York recently decorated their Palm Beach, Florida condo with the help of Maine Cottage Design Consultant Kelly Prucnal in our Yarmouth, Maine store.

Living Room

We love their color and style choices. Our upholstery, rattan, bed, dressers and various accessories combine easily with other furniture they own. And it’s great to see several pieces from our beachy oak Ogden collection in the master bedroom. The overall feel of these living spaces is one of simplicity and comfort. A coastal condo filled with light and ease. Surely a welcome respite from old man winter up in our neck of the woods.

a Divine Divan

Venus

“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.

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…
