I’ve always been a fan of Homebarn. Ever since Heart Home mag photographed co-founder Sarah’s home and the shop itself. The shop (nestled in a 17th century tithe barn in the heart of Little Marlow, Bucks) is a veritable treasure trove of vintage, reclaimed, industrial, antique and retro furniture and accessories. And Sarah’s home shared the same vintage aesthetic but combined with a contemporary open plan layout, crisply plastered walls and on-trend paint colours. A real mix of past and present. So, it comes as no surprise that Sarah and sister in law Sally (joint co-founder) have released a range of free standing furniture that is designed to complement existing vintage pieces.
“Our customers have been asking us for freestanding furniture that sit neatly alongside our vintage pieces so we created this range to offer them that under one roof. Having been in the industry for as many years as we have, we know what works with vintage and saw the opportunity to work with local craftsmen to create the new line. Supporting other local Buckinghamshire businesses is really important to us. We’ve used a mix of new and reclaimed materials with traditional techniques and think we’ve got the balance just right – all the pieces we’ve created would work well in both the modern and vintage home.”

Beautiful deconstructed French Antique chairs from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. To the rear the outer upholstery has been removed to reveal the fabulously chic timber construction and vintage stitching. The chairs have also been stripped to reveal the original calico and hessian linings. These occasional chairs have the modern rustic look in spades and would look beautiful in bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms and studies.
Woven Leather and Teak Folding Occasional Chair (Scandinavian Design), £425.
This beautifully elegant chair is made of soft tan leather and blonde teak frame and can be folded up much like a deck chair. The leather is substantially thick and does not sag but is at the same time soft and tactile. They look equally as fabulous fireside, in the kitchen, garden room or bedroom.
