If you’re looking for a timeless and elegant style that can add a touch of sophistication to any room, Stag Minstrel furniture is a fantastic choice to level up your interior decor. Read on for our top tips on tying the look together with Stag Minstrel as the focal point.


What is Stag Minstrel furniture?

This timelessly retro furniture range was created in 1964 by design partners, John and Sylvia Reid. Initially crafted from Makore or African Cherry wood, these popular pieces were veneered, and were well-known for their quality, solid craftsmanship.

The collection was inspired by 18th century furniture, with an emphasis on elegance and symmetry that has become even more popular today.

With it’s incredible durable design and robust finish, Stag Minstrel continues to be a sought after furniture style, and its easy to see why. As it’s so well-made, items from this brand are likely here to stay for the foreseeable. And with so many ways to upcycle Stag Minstrel furniture, you can put your own stamp on it, creating bespoke painted furniture.


Why choose Stag Minstrel furniture?

Stag Minstrel furniture is built to last — with a little bit of care and maintenance, it can be the centrepiece of your room for decades. Its versatility will add a pop of retro detail to any room in your home. Plus, you can completely change the look with a bit of upcycling, updating the aesthetic whenever you choose to go for new room decor.

Creating consistency with Stag Minstrel furniture

Consistency is critical when it comes to interior design because it helps to bring harmony and unity to a space. Stag minstrel furniture is renowned for its symmetrical, neat design that creates a cohesive look across any space you choose.

However, there are a few elements you can take on board to help your beautiful furniture fit seamlessly with the rest of your decor.


Colour scheme

When incorporating Stag Minstrel furniture into your room, it’s a good idea to choose a colour scheme and stick with it throughout. This will help create a cohesive look and tie everything together. Consider the colour of your walls, flooring, and other decor items when deciding what colour, pattern, and finish you would like to request for your bespoke painted furniture.


Mix and match

Having said that, Stag Minstrel furniture doesn’t have to match perfectly to create a consistent look. Mixing and matching different finishes and styles can add visual interest and depth to your space.

For example, if you prefer a wood finish for your upcycled pieces, Stag Minstrel furniture is comes in a range, including mahogany, oak, and walnut, among others.



While a simple furniture spruce can often do the trick, sometimes it’s great to accessorise your furniture. The devil is in the detail!

We can also modernise your Stag Minstrel furniture by adding stencil details using our fusion mineral paint collection.

Why not choose a pattern and incorporate it into both your furniture and your walls or soft furnishings?
