The Beatles may have sung about sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun, but the real magic is inside the English cottage where vintage charm takes center stage. On either side of the pond, the gently distressed antique look has skyrocketed in popularity. It manages to convey both sophistication and comfort simultaneously, with a serious splash of refinement and vintage appeal. If you’re one of the growing number of devotees to this trend, Green Front has you covered with a carefully selected range of pieces from Shabby Chic and Washable Wonders as well as antiques directly imported from England. Whether you want to add a little aged beauty to your space or a lot, be sure to check out these offerings located in Building 8 of Green Front’s Farmville location.
