Give your space a rustic edge with these shabby chic finds.
1 Sophisticated sleeping
The Parisian Bed by 2XL is hand-carved from solid wood, with a rich upholstered finish. Even left to its own devices, it will make for an imposing presence in your room, but pair the bed with a chintzy floral wallpaper, as seen here, to make a real statement.

2 Get a handle on things
This vibrant ceramic jug forms part of Indigo Living’s colourful Rice Collection. Each piece in the tabletop range is hand-dipped and dyed, and there are slight variations in oven temperature during the firing and dyeing process, meaning that each is a slightly different colour – and entirely unique.

3 Cabinet meeting
Inspired by cloth cabinets from the 17th century, which is where the well-to-do stored their precious broadcloth linens, the Hollande by Flamant is hand-carved, hand-painted and then specially treated with a special antique finish. Doors open to reveal shelves, while all of the inner compartments, including the three drawers, are lined with fabric.
• Hollande, Dh24,905, Flamant, The Dubai Mall
4 Sturdy seating
Flamant’s Navano I is the kind of chair that you’d expect to find stacked outside a coffee shop in a tiny Mediterranean village somewhere. Sturdy but uncomplicated, with a weathered wooden frame and exposed nails, this is the perfect complement to a rustic design scheme.
