Inspired By: California Wine Country

Above, Jay Jeffers brings his modern sensibility to an interior in a home located in the Napa Valley.

Wine country style is less about making an aesthetic statement and more about a feeling. The materials and textures — from the handsome reclaimed wood to lustrous leather, cowhide to natural fabrics — all telegraph a laid-back yet refined vibe. Such décor sets the scene for taking in sun-dappled landscapes or unwinding with a great book and a glass of (of course) wine. Here are a few of our favorite pieces that will bring a little bit of the Napa Valley to your home.

Custom Rustic Dining Table


A large dining table is the gathering spot in wine country homes. The time-worn texture of the reclaimed wood used for this table is in keeping with the low-key luxury of the style.


Loggia Sonoma Petit Chairs


The neutral cotton-linen blend upholstery brings an understated elegance to these versatile side chairs. We especially love the nailhead details and shapely wood legs.

Paul Ferrante 6-Bulb Iron Chandelier


The modern take on wine country style incorporates industrial materials that bring a slight edge to interiors. Iron, bronze, and other metals are often incorporated in lighting. This unique globe-shaped pendant would bring interesting contrast to the above reclaimed wood table.

Affiliated Craftsman Mid-Century Earthenware Planter


Pottery and ceramics are eternally popular in the Napa Valley — after all, California was a hotbed of pottery production. Affiliated Craftsman was one of the top names in California pottery, especially during the mid-century era. The earthy palette and interesting texture of this planter make for an unpretentious focal point indoors or out.

Merida Wool Blend Cortina Rug


Natural fibers blend with wool in this stylish rug, bringing resilient strength and plenty of subtle texture. The neutral hue brings to mind the lush earth in a vineyard.

Rose Tarlow Windsor Coffee Table


With its traditional good looks and a finish that brings warm richness to the wood, this coffee table will be a favorite for years.

Q Collection Sustainably Sourced Eco Hemp Sofa


Of course, it wouldn’t be California style without an eco-friendly find. This clean-lined sofa was designed with sustainability in mind and features neutral hemp upholstery.

Michael Taylor Collections Dauphine Bar Stool


Michael Taylor is known for bringing a distinctly “California” feel to his designs. We loved this bar stool not just for its comfortable shape and graceful proportions, but also for the way the warm wood complements the leather seat.

Glen Cove Vintage Turkish Kilim Pillow


Wine country style also carries a little inspiration from world travels. This striking pillow has a bold, graphic design that definitely draws the eye (without being too distracting).

Modernist Cowhide Platform King Bed


Though the bed has a sleek, simple design, it has a surprisingly luxurious feel, thanks to the cowhide upholstery.
