A refined range that looks at home in a town or country setting, Oak Furnitureland’s new Highgate collection is defined by a saturated shade of bathing pond blue that sits beautifully alongside the richness of the rustic oak tops. With a nod to the style of the leafy London neighbourhood that inspired this design, the cabinetry is flanked by a grooved pillar, reminiscent of Georgian door frames, which provides pieces with a solidity and grandeur while accentuating the quality of the construction.
The dramatic inky blue gives an on-trend twist to the traditional hardwood cabinetry; a cool hue complemented by the warmth of antiqued brass coloured cup handles, exposed hinges and circular knobs that echo the tone of the oak tops. The navy, wood and brass is a classic combination that looks fresh against muted neutrals but is equally striking with a vibrant accent shade as a backdrop.
Sarah Boyle, Product and Commercial Director at Oak Furnitureland, says: “Very popular in interior styles at the moment, dark blue is the new grey. It’s a moody hue that adds contemporary drama to a scheme. Inspired by classic shaker style kitchens but reinterpreted in inky rich blue. Highgate combines this on trend colour with a classic town and country aesthetic that will look at home in a smart city apartment or a more relaxed rural home.”
The new Hampstead sofa makes a great neighbour for the Highgate cabinetry collection, channeling a similar town and country aesthetic with turned oak legs and brass coloured casters. The sink-in comfort of the back cushions adds to the sofa’s sumptuous feel while the low, short arms means more space for generous, plump free seat cushions. Made from solid hardwood in the frame and upholstered in a soft but durable fabric, it’s built to take the wear and tear of busy households.
