The Scheme: House&Garden show ‘How To’ create a rustic farmhouse scheme, imagining our Trestle table as a centrepiece.
Every month House & Garden‘s decoration editors and stylists create a fictional, shoppable home, using a painstakingly researched section of beautiful design objects old and new. Welcome to The Scheme.
‘How To’ create a rustic farmhouse scheme:
WALL: the walls are painted with ‘Cream Colour’, £38.40 for 2.5 litres matt emulsion, from Papers and Paints.
FURNITURE: Late-nineteenth-century wood cupboard, similar from £1,800, try Lorfords Antiques; painted in ‘Ginger’, £55.20 for 2.5 litres water-based eggshell, from Papers and Paints. Oak trestle dining table, for similar, try oak ‘Trestle table’ (shown below) by Heerenhuis Manufactuur, at Different Like A Zoo. Bent willow chairs, for similar, ‘Twig Lawn Chair’, 110 x 70 x 79cm, £946.43, from Gottlieb Gallery.
The Trestle table by Heerenhuis is made from solid French oak, with a top of about 4cm thickness and a standard width of 80cm. It is available as a Made to Measure table, where almost any size is possible.
