Five home deco items for a rustic vintage look If you’re into the rustic, farmhouse look – a bit shabby chic, a bit French – read on. We’ve picked our five top rustic home deco items you can buy right now. French-style egg basket (£14.50) This wire egg basket could of course be used as intended, but I think it’s far too pretty to just be used for eggs. Fill it up with your scarves or use it to hold your vintage glove collection, or have it in your bathroom as a place to store your make-up. Chesterfield sofa (£635) This two-seater Chesterfield sofa in burgundy upholstery would make a great focus piece in your living room. Depending on your styling, the sofa could be quite relaxed country pub – think tartan blankets and rustic leather trunks. However, it could also work just as well in a more Sixties rock’n’roll get up, just imagine it surrounded by Art Deco lamps and oriental screens for a very cool Biba-inspired look. Vintage-style first aid tin (£ 10.50) This retro first aid tin makes a great storage container for your medicine and the bits and pieces we all seem to accumulate in the bathroom cabinet. I’ve recently gifted a similar one to a friend for her birthday filled with tiny gin and tonic bottles – for life’s little emergencies… Retro Metro clock (£54.50) This very Thirties inspired clock comes in either black or red. It would make a great addition to your mantlepiece or alternatively place it on a large Art Deco sideboard as a focus piece in your living room. Umbrella stand (£39.00) Available in black, ivory or white, this nifty little umbrella stand is small enough to fit into the tiniest of hallways. Fill it up with your vintage umbrellas and you’ll never ever to rummage for yours again.
