REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT UPDATE
After 27 years of being open 7 days a week, we decided it was time to take some days off. We are open Tuesday through Saturday 10 to 5. If those hours don't work for you, please call the store, 732 530 0685, to make an appointment. We can meet you there almost any time.
(And at the risk of confusing matters, we are often here on Sundays and Mondays so if you
are in the neighborhood you can stop by or give us a call and see if we are, indeed, at the store...)
Red Bank is the start of the Jersey Shore. Take the Garden State Parkway to exit 109 and British Cottaage is just minutes away. Or take a North Jersey Coast train from
Penn Station--we are two blocks from the station.
We all welcome you...
At British Cottage we decide what we stock:
antique and reproduction pine and hardwood dining tables,hutches, chests of drawers and cupboards.Whether it is our design, antique, or a bench made reproduction, our furniture
Our lamps and accessories are chosen for their timelessness. We are never trendy; in fact
we adore the classics--almost anything antique, oversized chandeliers, farmhouse tables, painted furniture,
Chinese porcelain jars, blue and white lamps. While we love things that are beautifulfor us function rules. When we were growing up living rooms were for anything but living; they were showrooms. Not anymore. Comfy couches, large cocktail tables, and now we are in the 21st century even the television is out of the closet!
Probably because we spent a good part of the last twenty eight years buying container loads of antique
European furniture, at British Cottage we are really good
at finding the newly made items that are unique and special--before they get
copied and dumb-downed by the big chain stores and catalogues. Whether traveling in England or on the
continent or at market in North Carolina it is the classic style of weathered wood and handmade construction that appeals to us. While we miss the absolute uniqueness of an antique piece, we appreciate the stability, functionality and pricing that comes with new furniture.
We like to think we are selling the antiques of tomorrow.
