Comments Off on Rustic Furniture
While factory-produced furniture offers a cheap option for quick home furnishing necessities, handcrafted furnishings offer a one-of-a-kind beauty. This is most evident in Rustic Furniture. Rustic Furniture has a rich history in America as an alternative style for the poor as well as the rich. Along with a school of design tied to the Arts and Crafts Movement of the early-20th century.
Rustic Amish furniture features a natural, raw aesthetic. Pieces are crafted of natural hardwoods (Hickory is a common choice) which still include bark accents and wood knots. Sometimes, fresh wood is harvested, steamed and bent into a variety of shapes to add decorative shapes to furnishings. The appeal of rustic Amish furniture transcends those looking for cabin or porch furniture, but has broadened its appeal to homeowners looking for beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted pieces.
