  • Modern and Rustic with Built in Lumbar

    If we asked you to picture a set of comfortable rustic dining chairs, what would spring into your mind? Reclaimed barnwood perhaps? Farmhouse detailing? Well both of these would be spectacular, obviously, but what if you want the best of every world with some rustic AND modern touches? Well that’s a little trickier to bring together, but we’ve done it for you!

    Our Sawmill Comfort Chairs are a totally unique product because they prioritize lumbar support, genuine comfort and chic styling equally. The result of such a collaborative approach is a rustic dining chair that functions beautifully, finishes any dining space to perfection and lasts longer than you ever thought possible. The question is: why did we decide to focus on comfort?

    We noticed that formal dining chairs have a tendency to look good but not feel great, most likely because they are used infrequently and don’t need to stand up to endless hours of being sat on. Who can’t put up with a little stiffness for one short meal, after all? Well we don't think you should have to and now, you can bask in back-supporting comfort regardless of how long you are perched and no worries about sleepy-butt syndrome either. Have you seen how padded the seats are? Let’s take a closer look at the design features that guarantee your posture and stamina.

    Curved seat back: Adding just enough ergonomic shaping without disrupting the overall aesthetic of the chair, the subtle slant of the back rest allows you to sink against the upright of the chair with your lumbar region perfectly hugged. Whether you’re enjoying a quick family dinner or something more formal that stretches into the evening, you won’t need to stretch your legs.

    Thick seat pad: Say goodbye to numbness and endless shifting thanks to our extra thick seat pad that sits proudly atop the most sturdy chair frame you’ll have ever seen. Resembling reclaimed barnwood, it exudes a strength and character all of its own and is balanced with the soft and luxurious seat itself, all wrapped in classic brown upholstery. That’s what we call ultimate design harmony.

    When we started to design this chair we had one mandate in mind: to bring together modern lines and rustic detailing in the most comfortable formal dining chair ever. Have we managed it? We firmly believe so, but don’t just take our word for it. Buy from us, risk free and with free shipping included when you buy two or more chairs in one order. You will see for yourself how stylish and supportive these charming chairs are and all you need to do is choose your finish color. Whether you’re a cool grey or deep Antique Barnwood kind of person, we have a stain that will suit the inside of your home perfectly and moreover, we will have a table to compliment it too.

    If you’ve been considering updating your entire rustic dining room set, there’s never been a better time to do so, as everything will ship together and for free, letting you simply choose your finish, click to buy and then wait for our delivery updates.

  • The Perfect Accompaniment

    A stunning rustic dining table might well be the centerpiece of an unforgettable dining room, but let’s not underestimate the value that well chosen comfortable yet rustic chairs can have as well. An easy way to bolster the beauty and theme set out by the rustic table, dining chairs need to also account for support and comfort, so choose the wrong ones at your peril!

    Here at Log Furniture Place we take great pride in conceptualizing, designing and making dining chairs that cannot be overlooked as simply functional pieces of furniture. They are all art in their own right and our Western Winds Rustic Farmhouse set is undeniable proof of that. Let’s start with those gorgeous good looks and then talk about comfort levels of the Western Winds Rustic Farmhouse Dining Chairs.

    Crafted from expertly aged rough sawn timber that mimics aged barnwood to such an undetectable extent that even we have to do a triple-take, these rustic farmhouse dining chairs give you all the style and heritage of antique wood but without the often astonishing price tag that comes with it. Naturally, when showcasing a more rustic style, a farmhouse design works so well, which is why we've taken a simple frame style and added in the cross design in the backrest. Reminiscent of farmhouse buildings it ties everything together. Genius!

    Available as a side or arm chair, you can also choose your finish, to ensure perfect integration with your existing furniture. Want something warm and natural? Our Honey Amber stain is ideal, but we also have a cool grey, a rich chestnut and the ultimate finish: Antique Barnwood. Don’t forget to decide whether you want to complement or contrast with your cross inserts too, as we offer a white, ebony or frame-matching finishing service. Essentially, we want you to be able to put your stamp on your rustic dining chairs just as much as we do. They may have our name on them, but they are going in your home and we don’t mind sharing the design credit with you!

    Now to the really important issue: are these rustic dining chairs comfortable? The answer is yes. We haven’t skimped on the padding for the seat and though the chairs come with brown upholstery as standard since it blends with all of our finish options. Just tell us what you want and we will always endeavor to make your dreams come true.

    Don’t forget to take a look at our selection of beautiful rustic dining tables too. You never know when you’ll need to replace a piece of furniture with something more timeless than tired!

  • The Perfect Blend

    You might not think that ultra rustic and sleek contemporary styling can work together and if you’d asked us a few years ago, we might have agreed with you, but you no longer have to choose between the two. We’ve spent time developing a dining table that captures the harmony and balance that can be achieved, so prepare to fall in love.

    We can’t lie; it’s taken some time to get here. Trying to decide between a modern base and a rustic dining table top or what you see here with an antique-inspired base and a smooth, modern top was tricky, but we knew that we wanted to get the balance right using only solid wood. Were we adding metal accents, we could have been more flamboyant, but this needed to be something timeless yet of its own time, all at once. No wonder we had to work so hard!

    Let’s start with the base. We’ve aged new pine to resemble genuine barnwood beams that look as though they have been rescued from an old building, to give the rustic underpinnings that this design called for. The rough sawn marks add a lot of character and depth, transforming new pine into something so much more stunning and all but undetectable too. With the rustic table base design set in stone, we then open up the options for you to create your perfect table, with just the right amount of modern chic added in. You can select:

    Rustic Table size: With eight sizes on offer, reaching 12ft in length, we like to think we have all bases covered, but get in touch if you need something not listed. Custom work is a speciality for us.

    Rustic Dining Table Top style: Why let us have all the fun with the design process, when you can decide which wood you’d like for your top? We have five to choose from, including sumptuous black walnut and classic oak.

    Edge style: You can dial the rustic finish up or down, with your choice of top edge finish. Choose a live edge for the more earthy aesthetic, or a flat or chamfered option for a stylized alternative. 

    Top finish: Finally, we ask you to tell us what color you’d like your table top. Bear in mind that the base is our proprietary antique barnwood, so you’ll want to choose something that works well and will complement your home too. We have five options, with an under clear being one of them, if you’ve selected a wood that you are particularly taken with.

    There are no wrong choices, only the ones that will look the best in your particular home. We think that with the combination of modern and rustic elements here, there is no limit as to the type of property this table would work well in, though a family cabin definitely springs to mind!

    Designed, built and shipped from right here in the USA, our Rustic Timber Dining Table has been created to please aloof the people, all of the time and without any compromises on quality, finish or customer service.

  • A Table for the Ages

    When you want genuine antique barnwood but the cost is simply too high, finding a dupe that actually fools is a hard task. We’ve mastered the art of imitation, thanks to our carefully selected team of experts and now, we can invite you to try and tell the difference!

    Traditional trestle dining tables work so well with antique barnwood. There’s just something so right about the combination on a rustic dining table, but the price of such pieces is often a stumbling block for customers with fabulous taste. Not anymore though, as we are proud to offer our Timber Haven Trestle Dining Table, which offers the charming aesthetic you love but for a price that’s manageable. The secret? Our beautiful faux aged pine!

    Our craftspeople are something else. We boast about them a lot, but that’s because they are the best at what they do. It’s as simple as that. If you want gorgeous solid wood rustic furniture, they are the people you want to be building it and when it comes to imitating expensive finishes, there are none finer! Using rough sawn marks and special hand finishing techniques, our workshop can turn new pine timber into barnwood that would fool almost anybody. We’ve even had to look twice before now. Of course, the design plays a big role too.

    Barnwood is rarely used in contemporary styles, as the contrast is just a bit too stark, so replica timber needs to follow suit. That’s why we drew on time honored classic visuals for this stunning rustic table. The trestle base — with thick supportive legs — is the perfect prop for the ultra thick and heavy top. Thanks to using new wood, we are also able to offer this design in a huge array of different sizes. We offer eight as standard, in our dropdown menu, though the sky really is the limit. Custom sizes are no problem for us here at Log Furniture Place and we enjoy the opportunity to take a style that we’ve dreamt up and turn it into something one-off and unique for a particular customer. Just get in touch for help.

    Just as no two houses are ever the same size or subject to the same interior design scheme, we know that offering just one color would have been a big mistake. For the ultimate in barnwood mimicking, you can select the antique barnwood finish, or select from one of the other three lighter hues. This dining table comes with a lifetime warranty, so you need to be sure that it will look at home and that you’ll love it, literally forever, so there is no point in compromising at the final hurdle, is there?

    Each piece is built to order, just so that we can take our time and lavish it with all the care you’d expect, but we will ship for free, within the contiguous 48 states, as a way of thanking your for your patience. This is the last rustic table you’ll ever need to buy though, so what’s a small wait in the grand scheme of things?

  • Farmhouse Made Fabulous

    If you’ve always thought of farmhouse style furniture as less glamorous and more quaint, prepare to be shocked by our take on the quintessential dining room design genre.

    Farmhouse furniture has a knack for conjuring images of freshly baked bread, hearty meals and a focus on functionality, sometimes at the behest of style. It’s ok to admit that, especially when we’ve made a big effort to add the wow factor back into rustic furniture designs! We wanted to keep all of the charm of farmhouse furniture, just without any of the fuddy duddy features and that’s when our Western Winds Farmhouse Table came to us.

    The perfect blend of pretty and practical, we’ve used distressed pine timber to recreate the look of authentic barn wood, just without the price and because it’s not imbued with real American history and heritage, we didn't feel bad about adding a splash of color too!

    Just look at those rough sawn marks! The ideal way to age and distress new wood, our artisans have become masters of replicating the charm and character of barn wood in new, sturdy timber. This gives you a table that looks as though it has a story to tell, but will also last a lifetime and let you create your own family memories around it. The color schemes we chose to offer also guarantee that your table will never go out of style or look out of place in your home. Call us old fashioned, but we believe a rustic dining table should be a once in a lifetime purchase, not a disposable piece that gets replaced every season. And yes, we know that means we will sell fewer of them, but customer satisfaction is a bigger priority than empty profits!

    A stunning base, with double x features, sits below a thick and tactile top. Even the biggest Thanksgiving feast won’t pose a problem here, but you might struggle to choose from the color options we have, not to mention the eight standard sizes! For the top, we have four colors, ranging from a neutral weathered grey through to a rich and decadent antique barnwood. Then comes the all-important base. Will you contrast with a traditional whitewash? Go a little dramatic with a deep ebony? Or what about matching the top and bottom finishes, for the ultimate in cohesive farmhouse designs? Whatever you choose, you can rest easy that we will put the same amount of care and love into each option, with finishes applied by hand for the perfect coverage.

    Forget what you think you know about farmhouse furniture because you don’t need to be herding cattle on the daily to deserve this family centerpiece! Supplied with a lifetime warranty, we know you’ll quickly realize that this is an investment, not just a new table. What’s more, we’ll ship for free within the 48 contiguous states, so keep that in mind when you’re wondering whether to buy chairs now or later. Smaller pieces can incur a delivery cost, but chairs will ship for free when bought with a table. 

  • Built To Last a Lifetime

    There are plenty of things to love about genuine reclaimed barn wood, but the price is rarely one of them. The ease with which it transforms an everyday piece of furniture into a show stopping focal point is chief amongst the benefits and we have captured that essence, but without the heavy cost. 

    Before we start talking about the gorgeous Sawmill Barnwood Dining Table, let’s address the issue of non-authentic barn wood. We are completely transparent when we create designs inspired by reclaimed timber, telling you all about our faux patina and ageing techniques that masterfully mimic the real thing. We never try to pass off our replica timber as antique though. We can’t say the same for every furniture maker out there, but our actual reclaimed barn wood all has at least a century of domestic history and pride running through it and we select every piece to ensure strength, character and charm.

    Right now that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at our barn wood style dining table that on the face of it, is so simple in style. While we often love to come up with unusual, striking and bold designs, with this particular piece we were thinking about classic lines and a style that would let the timber itself do the talking. We wanted to retain the rustic vibe, which is why chunky proportions have been included but just look at the rough sawn finish that gives the feel of reclaimed wood! You’d never be able to guess that this is specially finished pine, would you? Nor will your guests!

    Though we adore using genuine barn wood, it limits the scope of customization significantly, just because we can’t always guarantee the sizes or amounts that we can source. With aged-effect pine, we can build a staggering number of options. This table alone allows for more than 30 incarnations, with eight standard sizes to choose from, four lacquers and that’s before we even mention bespoke possibilities.

    What we love most about this rustic dining table is the chunky base. The thick, strong legs and truss brace make for a design that not only looks classic, but will also stand the test of time and any stresses put upon it. Finished with a rustic top that begs to be eaten, studied and played on, we can picture this being the centerpiece in any cabin or lodge home, not to mention a contemporary space that needs some contrast. The top is finished to prevent staining, so all you have to worry about is finding the right comfortable rustic chairs to pair with it!

    Designed and built in the USA, this rustic barnwood table is the embodiment of domestic craftsmanship. It can weather any storm and keeps family at the center of everything and if that’s not American, we don’t know what is! Supplied with a limited lifetime warranty and delivered via free shipping, within the contiguous 48 states, we know that you’re going to love making memories around this fabulous piece of furniture. 

  • Contemporary Chic With a Rustic Twist

    There’s something about bookcases isn’t there? Keepers of precious items and escapes for our imaginations, they need to be protective and sturdy but those with added design prowess just finish a room like nothing else.

    When we designed our Cedar Lake Log Bookcase we had a specific notion in mind: to make a large piece of rustic storage furniture that both blended into the background and could hold its own in terms of gorgeous design. That’s not an easy balancing act to get right, but by dialing down the overarching rustic aesthetic and staying true to a more streamlined and simple style, we think we’ve mastered it. 

    We take aged northern white cedar logs, hand picked for their shape and character and we carefully peel them, all by hand. Machines might be great for some tasks, but when it comes to preserving the unique character of aged timber, they don’t have the precision or delicate touch needed. We entrust this to our team of artisans instead. By doing things a little slower and with more human processes, we can guarantee that every single log bookcase is totally unique, thanks to the natural age marks on every log.

    Standing at 72” tall and offered in a range of widths, this is no shrinking violet and it comes with five adjustable shelves as standard. We do this to give you the best chance of storing and displaying absolutely everything that you need to, regardless of how things change in your home. We also ask for your input, regarding the finish color that will work best in your home. 

    Don’t be swayed by our affinity for natural logs, though the northern white cedar is incredible as is! If you want something a little more rich than our clear lacquer, we also offer a warm honey or deep vintage whiskey. Both protect the timber and add a dimension of design flair that allows a new addition to blend seamlessly with everything you already own. 

    Perfect as a single installation or in multiples, the Cedar Lake bookcase is a perfect example of simple design being so strikingly beautiful. We love them so much that we like to use them as focal points rather than just storage, with a well placed lamp and some family pictures drawing the eye.

    So, what would make you decide to take the plunge and invest in the most sturdy and stunning bookcase for your home? A limited lifetime warranty? It’s yours! Free shipping? Of course, as long as you are in the contiguous 48 states. A bespoke build using your own dimensions? Why not! Just get in touch and we can start the ordering process for you.

    A rustic bookcase isn’t just for one season, it’s for life, so why not let us help you make the best choice? Our team is always here and ready to help with impartial advice and industry expertise that will help you become a member of the Log Furniture Place family.

  • Beauty Built In

    When you use the best materials and seek to amplify their organic beauty, instead of overshadowing, even the most perfunctory of furniture items can become a work of art.

    You know by now that we don’t like to brag without good reason, so today we are going to unabashedly congratulate ourselves for creating a rustic bookcase that stands out from the wall instead of simply melting into it. 

    Our Beaver Creek Franklin Style Rustic Bookcase is a testament to a few of our defining and driving principles. Firstly, we have sought to highlight the natural beauty of the aspen logs used throughout, because why wouldn’t we? We even give you the choice of light or dark logs and an opportunity to embrace the most characterful examples in our wood store. This allows you to enjoy the perfect level of rustic for your home. We also ask you whether you’d like your logs left natural, with just a protective clear lacquer or if added warmth would be the ultimate finishing touch. If it would be, our honey lacquer is the way to go and the hand-peeled logs will soak up the golden hue in an instant. 

    We want you to buy with confidence, which is why we always seek to offer you plenty of personalization opportunities, as well as adaptive furniture. What our competitors often fail to account for is evolving home needs and design, but we always take this into consideration. For example, in this particular design. All of the shelves are adjustable, because what you need to store today in your log bookcase might be very different in a year or so. We also give you a limited lifetime warranty, because if our furniture can’t stand the test of time and your changing needs, can we really call ourselves master craftspeople? We don’t think so.

    Naturally, you’ll trust our eye for great design, but every piece that we make is destined for a home, not a dusty showroom, so we WANT you to tell us how to make everything perfect for you. Here, we not only give you creative input in terms of the style and color of logs that we build with, we also ask you to choose your drawer front style. Are you going for all-out rustic? Then the half log finish is ideal. For a more contemporary and understated take on the aesthetic, select a flat front. 

    With logs, finish and drawer design all decided, it’s time to wrap things up, in a perfectly proportional bow. We offer a choice of three standard widths, but who has a ‘normal’ home? We are delighted to be able to offer custom builds, with your exact specifications, location and needs all accounted for. Think of this design — with its four shelves and single drawer — as the ideal jumping off point for something that caters to your every storage need. Or, if one of our regular sizes will work for you, simply click, buy and wait for your free delivery of the last rustic bookcase you’ll ever need!

  • A Chair Fit For a Captain of Industry

    You might think that the most important piece of furniture in your office is the desk and yes, it’s certainly the centerpiece. It’s where you sit to make all of your big decisions and progress your business ventures, but don’t forget that while you’re there, you need to be comfortable and supported. Really, we think the — formerly — humble desk chair might be the most important office investment you can make.

    Our Cedar Lake Comfort Log Office Chair is something else and is described by a verified buyer as:

    “Nice quality and perfect fit with our desk which was purchased early! Very comfortable and excellent finish.”

    Notice that the chair doesn’t just look good or felt ok, it is comfortable AND good looking. That’s a hard balance to get right, especially with rustic office chairs, that need to be sat in for long days. It’s all very well creating a rustic take on the classic office swivel chair but if your body tells you to get up and move about after a few minutes, what’s the point? All looks and no substance is not what we are about.

    We took our time with this design. We knew what we wanted to achieve and it took a few incarnations. Why lie? We are perfectionists and coming close wasn’t an option. That’s how we have ended up with a rustic office chair with a contoured seat, designed to hug your legs and back for maximum support. We wanted you to be able to enjoy the freedom of as much adjustment as possible too, which is why you can swivel, roll, tilt and even raise and lower, through the easy-to-operate pneumatics. Don’t go thinking that we forgot our roots though! We might have focused a lot of time and energy on getting the operation and comfort right, but wow. We REALLY went to town with the aesthetics.

    You see those cedar logs? Carefully selected and hand-peeled, to capture the perfect rustic essence that also increases the class of your office. So smooth to the touch, you’ll think they have been finished by machinery, but no, all by our talented craftspeople that respect the traditional ways of working. There’s just enough character in the logs to be interesting, but not overpowering, because if you want something outrageously rustic, you will enjoy our selection of rustic cedar and Aspen desks. Just be sure to check the ‘extra character’ box. You could choose an eye-catching finish though.

    We offer clear, honey or ‘vintage whiskey’ lacquers. Each protects your chair, but the two letter choices add some color as well.

    Shipped for free*, as soon as you click to buy, you don’t need to worry about anything else. And we really mean that, because your chair will arrive, not only packaged safely and for your convenience, but also with a limited lifetime warranty in place. That’s how sure we are that you’ll love this seat and have no problems with it whatsoever. It’s an American-made dream!

  • Make a Big Impression

    Certain things can define the perception of an executive before any words are exchanged. A snappy suit, a chic haircut and of course, an incredible desk. The control center for their entire empire, an executive desk needs to be powerful, memorable and as practical as possible as well, which is why we brought our Beaver Creek Aspen Executive Log Desk into being.

    No hiding the rustic charm

    The absolute first thing anybody will notice about this desk is how unapologetically rustic it is. Regardless of the material and finish choices you make (more on these in a moment!), the end result will be a stoic, sturdy and tactile rustic desk that means business. You’ll find knots, track marks from insects and even elk rub marks, but that all adds to the character. Perfection comes in many forms and if you want something genuinely plucked from the woodland, you’ve found it!

    Our wood is harvested from dead standing trees, because we know that sustainability is on the minds of many an executive now. From these heroic trunks, we gain stunning logs that are turned into strong frames and thick slab tops, by our team of master craftspeople. Though we give you plenty of input, in order to build you the most tailored rustic desk for your needs, certain features remain the same throughout, including:

    • Full extension drawer glides, rated up to 75lbs
    • Deep bottom drawers, designed to work with suspension file systems
    • A pull our keyboard tray, for a neater and more streamlined look

    Make some executive decisions

    So, you love the log desk. Of course you do, but you want to make it for with the rest of your rustic office and you’ve got particular tastes. We understand that and have built plenty of provisions into our design, to help you customize as much as you want to. Have your say on the following, safe in the knowledge that you’ll still be able to enjoy free shipping*:

    Your choice of Aspen – Did you know that Aspen comes in two very different but equally beautiful colors? The light logs have a pale and creamy look, while the dark take on a more dramatic vibe. Only you know which will be best for your office, so why would we give you just one choice? You can also opt for logs with extra character, which will be even more rustic and gnarled.

    Finish style – We think that the Aspen looks incredible with either a clear or honey-toned lacquer. The honey adds a warm feel, whereas the clear plays on the natural beauty of the logs.

    Desk top – Thick, solid and made from pure Aspen? Sounds good, right? What about adding a walnut inlay, for the ultimate finishing touch? It breaks up the large surface area and ads some luxurious contrast, but it’s by no means essential.

    We want to build you your ultimate work station, so if you have some other ideas or even want to discuss this exact desk, but in a custom size, we are ready to help.
