Barn Style - The New American Styling

With the advent of American home renovation shows such as "Fixer Upper" and "Flip or Flop", we are seeing a growing trend towards the "Barn Style" look. Homeowners are not necessarily buying farmhouses or country properties, but they love the homely feel they exude and are looking to emulate that style, usually with a modern take on it. Enter the new "Barn-Style", stage left!

A common feature of this style are the metal sliding rails and forged handles, such as are found on old barn doors. You can now find this hardware appearing on a select range of our furniture as discussed in this article.

Looking smart in the Living Room are the Sonoma media consoles - both the 2 drawer and 4 drawer versions. These units can be ordered in a variety of colours, but the Smokey Grey (SKG), Antique White (WHD) and the new OAK are all proving popular. For those who have the space, the Sonoma Media Cabinet w/ Sliding Doors is a magnificent statement piece, as is the Sonoma Shutter Media Cabinet (see images below).

Looking to add a little 'rustic charm'? Then turn to the Harrington Media console in a Sorell Brown (SRB) timber colour with Vintage Rust (VRU) doors and tracks. The Leandrew Media Console (see main image above) is another alternative that is quite the statement piece - a real highlight in any living area.
