Cottage Furniture and Reproductions
The popularity of Cottage Furniture has continued because of its simplicity which enhances most interior styles. A great deal of its design came from Cape Country Furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries. The design and construction of various pieces, such as the popular Windsor chairs, were introduced during the British occupation of the Cape. A large amount of cottage furniture was also being imported from overseas – this included Bentwood's from Austria and Spindle-back colonial chairs from America.
As old buildings in South Africa are renovated the timeless cottage furniture continues to feature and enjoy popularity.
