Welcome Newport Cottages!

ImageWe are thrilled to announce the addition of the Newport Cottages line to modernnursery.com! We’ve coveted their designs for quite a while now and can’t wait to share their unique style with you. Here’s some of what they have to say about their quality and construction:

All of our furniture pieces are benchmade from select hardwoods. Quality craftsmanship and traditional woodworking techniques are implemented, such as mortise & tenon joinery, rail & stile construction, as well as inlaid raised panels. The term “benchmade” is used when an item is individually built from start to finish on the bench of a highly skilled carpenter. Artisans hand turn all posts and legs for each piece of furniture. In an era of mass production, imports and computerized machinery, this is an art form seldom used by most furniture manufacturers.

In addition to their focus on detail, they have built out a line of goods that spans the design world. From modern to traditional to somewhere inbetween, there is something for everyone. What’s more is their commitment to customizable design. The entire catalog offers numerous color combinations and finishes, all chosen by you to suit your taste and decor aesthetic:

When designing a nursery or kid’s room, we know how challenging it is to get just the right look. Have no fear! We offer a myriad of unique custom options to help you! Whether it is a stunning paint coat with complementary trim color to match the interior color scheme, a classic stain to set the mood, or the little details like knobs or an appliqué that makes all the difference, we have plenty of options to craft the furniture that fits you.

Check out their unique listings on modernnursery.com today and let us know how we can help you design your own custom piece!
