Covering off the three bases of decor – living, dining and bedroom – the new NOX sustainable furniture line from Team 7 offers all your home essentials in one cohesive collection. Created by award-winning European designer Jacob Strobel, the modern collection features wood, beautifully yet eco-consciously finished with only non-toxic, herbal oils and waxes. Tables come with the option of wood A-line legs or polished stainless steel, which puts a modern twist on tradition. Your cabinets echo the warmth of wood with the contemporary touch of glass. And we love the wood bench, which is finished with leather. We’d place it with a rustic, knotty barn-board table for a country-kitchen look!

I like a lot of rustic, kitschy, country-inspired things, and one of the challenges I face is balancing the three in order to create a sophisticated decor. While I like minimalistic designs a great deal, they aren’t practical for me. This challenge means I opt for pieces like this picnic-inspired table to help create balance. It’s a modern twist on the old classic, and I feel that it would actually look really great against a background of more rustic pieces. (Stay tuned for photos depicting exactly what I mean.)
