Hickory Wood, for a True ‘Rustic’ Look
Perhaps no type of furniture sends out antique vibes like rustic furniture. And Amish artisans are at the forefront of crafting this unique type of furniture. Hickory wood is one of the most popular choices for rustic furniture. Also, Amish craftsmen love using natural pieces of hickory containing knots and bark to enhance the rustic appearance of the furniture. These natural accents add a custom touch to each furnishing. In fact, that’s the main reason no two pieces of rustic furniture are exactly alike. Of course, furniture aficionados love this one-of-a-kind, ‘natural,’ or ‘authentic’ look.
