The country style originated in the French countryside in the 19th century. It was a reflection of life, living and working among the fields. In other words, a simple existence, with a lot of warmth and cosiness. A rural atmosphere is known for its grey tones and other warm earth tones, creating a peaceful whole and the feeling of a home and security. A nice combination is adding wood. Country wood furniture is usually large, rough, and robust. The use of stone materials is also a nice addition. Seating furniture often has round shapes. Elements to create cosiness are knitted plaids and the use of many decorative pillows. Natural materials predominate in a country house style. They provide atmosphere, warmth, toughness, and a certain sobriety. The use of lime paint is also very characteristic of this country style.
