Nordic Retreat

A big decor trend for 2019 is ‘Nordic Retreat’ which centers around warm and inviting neutral colours and natural layered materials to create a paired back look that is effortlessly stylish, whilst being a cosy place you can unwind in and switch off from the world outside.

Apart from being oh so stylish and gorgeous, we love this look as its designed for homeowners to easily update their home with a few accessories and furniture pieces that when put together can transform the look of a home with minimal effort. This Scandi inspired trend just screams luxury, comfort and the ultimate place you’d want to relax in with a good book and an optional gin and tonic.

Key colours:  Natural colourways like: Natural Whites, Soft Browns, Warm Gold and Greys

Key materials: Think nature: Sheepskin, wool, wood, wicker

Luxurious Cushions

Square Cushion in Ivory

Ideal Home put this stunning look together – using a soft colour palette and contrasting textures, it creates an inviting and effortlessly stylish look.

The Natural Ivory Square Sheepskin Cushion from our collection pictured in this look helps to soften the look whilst adding luxury.

…You can even see our Carys Stool in Natural Ivory hiding in the back!

The ultimate statement piece

…and when we say ultimate, we mean ultimate!

Let me introduce you to our Natural Ivory Sheepskin Armchair, we’re calling it the Polar Bear Chair and he really is THE most fantastic statement chair…and the statement is…WOW!!

Comfortably upholstered from mahogany frame by a master upholsterer here in our traditional workshop in North Wales the chair is then completely covered in Ivory British Sheepskin.

It’s the perfect spot to curl up with a great book…or to watch your favourite TV program…Dancing on Ice perhaps?

Our British sheepskin is the perfect choice for home ware as wool resists spills, dries very quickly and is mildew resistant. It is naturally fire retardant, resists static, dirt and dust, is hypoallergenic and sustainable.

The chair is approximately 125cm high, 90cm wide and 90cm deep with the seat being 40cm high and 55cm deep. Measurements are approximate as sheepskin can differ in length.

…if this isn’t the ultimate chair to cosy up to in a Nordic Retreat style room, then I don’t know what is!

The fluffy treat for your feet or ever so comfy seat

Our stylish customers take on the Nordic Retreat – complete with a sheepskin Baa Stool of course!

Griff in Rare Breed

The colours that Lissy has used in her hub of the home create a calm space to unwind, accompanied by a trio of luxuriously comfortable Griff Bar Stools in Rare Breed for the ultimate perch.

Bronwen in Rare Breed

Our lovely customer Rachel shared this image of her Bronwen Baa Stool in Rare Breed.

Rachel selected a gorgeous ‘cookies and cream’ style Rare Breed Sheepskin for her Baa Stool which looks stunning in her home.

We love the look of the dark wall, and how it has been used to create emphasis on all the wooden features – from the fire place to the shelves. Even complete with wicker basket, wooden mirror and fresh flowers – we can’t get enough of this Nordic Retreat inspired look.

Ffleur in Rare Breed

 We love this cosy picture that our customer has put together using a neutral colour palette and lots of luxurious sheepskin

Myfanwy Baa Stool in Chocolate

Myfanwy Baa Stool footstool is having a moment! This footstool is one of the original Baa Stool designs that Head Shepherd Michelle started with in 2013.

…New members to complete the look

The Tuffet has joined the flock just at the right time…

One of our new members to the footstool flock is what we’ve called…the Tuffet, and she’s beyond dreamy. At 45 cm tall, the Tuffet is the perfect height to use as an extra seat in your living area for when there’s an extra person to seat, or to use as a footstool to put your feet up in style.

This Tuffet is the Gold version and is pictured with a natural Rare Breed sheepskin cover. All of our Rare Breed sheepskin is completely unique and this colourway is what we’d call a cafe au lait – featuring creams, beige and caramel, it tones in beautifully with the gold legs and would work amazingly well in helping to create a ‘Nordic Retreat’ look.

Splayed Gold Legs

Featuring four splayed gold legs – this Tuffet makes the ultimate edition to a Nordic Retreat look with the warm tones from the legs

Cushioned Seat

Yes, we make some stunning things at Baa Stool, but we also make them luxuriously comfy.

Under the removable sheepskin cover of the Tuffet is this hand made cushioned seat that makes it the ultimate perch or treat for your feet!
