The New Willow Range - Laura James

The New Willow Range

Looking to update your home this season? The new Willow collection by Laura James features stand out furniture to suit every home. Made with oak veneer this beautiful range of furniture includes dining tables, side boards and armchairs. The Willow collection is inspired by the Japandi trend, the combination of Japanese and Scandinavian interior design. This interior style focuses on natural elements, comfort and minimal yet functional design. 

How to Create a Minimal Stylish Aesthetic 

Japandi style is generally minimal with clean lines and natural textures. Think clutter free and a home that flows seamlessly throughout. Draw on neutral colours like beiges and creams to create a calming effect with a few black accents for balance. Remember to incorporate natural materials to add some texture like a seagrass rug, a vase with some dried flowers and of course wooden furniture. Clutter free doesn’t have to mean completely empty, you can still have a few well-placed accessories for a thoughtful look.  

Stylish Storage  

Keeping clutter to a minimum is not always easy at home if you have a busy family life, so having a great quality piece of storage furniture that’s also aesthetically pleasing can be tricky to find. The Willow tall cabinet is finished with gorgeous oak veneer panelling and features six spacious shelves inside to store anything from toys and games to paperwork. This stunning piece of statement furniture could go in the living room or in a spacious hallway.  

If you still need storage but don’t necessarily have the space for something large, then the Willow range also has a smaller sideboard with four shelves inside that also comes in natural oak. Alternatively a stylish console table makes a useful addition to the hallway or perhaps a dressing table. With a signature panelled front the Willow console table comes in both oak and black. 

Desirable Dining 

For stand out style the Willow dining table features a beautiful oval design and slatted curved base. With plenty of room to seat up to ten guests this dining table will be the hero piece in your dining room or open plan kitchen space. Available in both black and natural oak this beautifully crafted table will be a worthwhile investment for your home. Style your Willow table with a glass vase filled with fresh flowers for a simple yet chic look. For smaller spaces the Willow round dining table is just as chic and features the same slatted pedestal design.  

Finishing Touches 

The Willow range also extends to a few smaller pieces including a coffee table and side table both round in design with the panelled pedestal base. The side tables could make great bedside tables if you want to create a Japandi-inspired bedroom.  

There is also gorgeous Scandi inspired accent chair featuring a cane backrest which also comes with a neutral-coloured seat cushion. Both black and oak versions of this armchair would work beautifully in the living room or on the landing. Simply add a stylish cushion to elevate the look.
