Dine in Scandi style this winter with Modish Living

Lovers of Scandi’s enlightened sense of style will rejoice at the discovery of the beautiful Farringdon and Dorset collections of reclaimed wood furniture from Modish Living. Including everything from tempting trestle dining tables and family friendly extendable tables to a welcoming wood bench and seriously stylish sideboards, these naturally rustic additions will add an instant Nordic vibe to your dining space.

Renowned for its simplicity and beauty, Scandinavian style shows no sign of losing its popularity in homes and interiors. Its pared back and minimal style has evolved into a more homespun, cosy feel, focusing on sculptural organic shapes, earthy pigments, natural materials and textures, such as wood.

With natural markings and a muted grey finish, the Farringdon Reclaimed Wood Extendable Trestle Table gives an instant homely Scandi impression. The matching reclaimed wood bench continues the relaxed mood. Pair with the Farringdon Medium Sideboard and textural bamboo pendant.

Made using aged reclaimed wood rescued from old buildings, Modish Living’s Farringdon and Dorset collections are the perfect fit for Scandi design devotees. Skillfully crafted to enhance the natural tones of the wood and given a renewed sense of purpose and style, these pieces evoke a sense of comfort, style and hygge happiness.

As well as providing essential storage, this sideboard has a natural beauty and character. The natural markings of the reclaimed wood shines through the white painted finish, giving it a lived-in authenticity perfect for a Scandi feel dining room.

The distressed white base of the Dorset Extendable Trestle Table keeps the aesthetic neutral whilst adding warmth.  Accessorise with a sheepskin rug and large white bamboo pendant as styled here.

Three central drawers and two large cupboards offer plenty of storage for your kitchen essentials. The subtle grey matt lacquer accentuates the natural markings and history of the wood, whilst giving it a distinct Nordic feel.

The large pendant above the Farringdon extending table is made out of biodegradable woodchip; the perfect pared-back accessory to complement this 100% reclaimed wood collection.


Modish Living was founded by husband and wife, Chris and Hellen Barlow in 2012 with an idea born around a wooden kitchen table to create an online boutique selling a handpicked collection of beautifully crafted reclaimed, rustic and sustainable wood furniture. Their sharp interior eye and impeccable taste helped make this dream a reality and in just a short space of time, their small seed of an idea outgrew the kitchen table to become the online store it is today.

From its Hove studio, Modish Living offers unique, authentic and elegant furniture and homeware that’s bursting with natural rustic character. Specialising in reclaimed wood furniture and sustainably sourced furniture and homeware, from worldwide suppliers, Modish Living draws on the past to create beautiful homes for the future.
