  • Storing, Studying, Sewing & Stuff

    Writing Desks with Multiple FunctionsWe avoid buying new furniture. I hate to admit it, but it’s true. We’ve had our leather sofa and chairs for more years than we’ve been married. They are scratched, dirty, marred and in bad need of either being slipcovered or just replaced. But we resist.

    Don’t get me wrong…I love that new sofa smell. Mmmm, I can almost detect that warm, comfy smell of supple leather. But, alas…we are a military family. We move every 2-3 years, and we never know what the floor plan of our next house is going to be. It is inevitable that during every move, some of our furniture will be broken or completely destroyed. And if the movers don’t manage to do it, our two boys will. And so…we persist with beat-up furniture.

    When we do make a furniture purchase, it’s usually something that is sturdy, small(ish), and can be used for several purchases. For our next move, I’ve promised our youngest son an art studio. Now…he’s four, and to him an “art studio” means a place to stash his markers, paper, scissors and glue. A table stuck in a corner would do him just fine. But I also want that “table” to serve more than one purpose. That’s why I selected a simple writing desk for his “studio”.

    The best thing about a writing desk is that simplicity I mentioned. It’s not heavy and it’s not big. It has two drawers for stashing stuff. The Barnwood 2 Drawer Writing Desk is perfect for drawing, reading, or acting as a base for a sewing project. Removable and portable wooden crates can easily be stacked around its base or hung on the wall for additional storage. If those get lost or broken in a move, they are easily replaced.

    A multi-purpose desk. It’s a win-win for our house. Now if only it did dishes and folded laundry…

  • Aspen Furniture Brightens Up Home Offices

    Your Home Office Will Look Great with BookcasesRustic furniture adds a warm touch to your home office that makes it feel more inviting and comfortable. Whether work follows you home from your day job or you’re bogged down with your yearly taxes, you deserve to have a space that’s enjoyable to work in. Solid pieces like the Elk Summit Aspen Log Bookcase a combine classic form with the unique beauty that’s only found in aspen wood harvested from dead-standing trees.

    Chunky hand-peeled logs meet smooth panels in this stunning bookcase. A central fixed shelf with log edging divides the top of the piece from the bottom, and three adjustable shelves allow you to create the best configuration for storing books or displaying decorations. Four corner logs form a sturdy base for the rest of the shelf. Another eye-catching aspen log stretches across the top to balance out the rugged appearance. The hand peeling process ensures that none of the original character of the wood is lost in the making of the piece.

    Some bookcases use pressboard or cardboard backings that are simply nailed or screwed in place, but the Elk Summit Aspen Log Bookcase is made entirely from aspen wood. Its back features tongue and groove paneling that’s not only attractive but also rugged. You’ll never see the back of the piece bowing or bending. This strength is one of the classic characteristics that makes aspen furniture so popular. Supplement the natural rugged nature with a clear catalyzed lacquer finish, or create a bold look for your office with the honey tone option.

    You can choose either a 36-inch or 40-inch wide bookshelf to accommodate your needs and fit your available office space. Add doors in place of the lower shelves on the unit if you need a cabinet for storing office supplies such as printer paper, files or envelopes. Stick with standard aspen wood and you’ll get log furniture that sports interesting twists and turns as well as knots and even old tracks from insects. “Extra gnarly” aspen has more personality and gives you something to admire whenever you need a break from the daily grind.

  • Stay Organized with Versatile Country Decor

    Country Style Bookshelves for the OfficeGetting work done at home is easier and more efficient when you can keep your reference books close at hand. A sturdy shelving unit like the Lakeland Log Bookshelf with 5 Shelves gives you plenty of space to line up all of the books that you need. You may even find that you have room left over to add a personal touch with some country decor. Built using a combination of logs and boards, this shelf exudes rugged character that’s right at home in cabins and lodges.

    Open construction makes this solid log furniture versatile for use in any room design. Place it against the wall like a traditional bookshelf or set it up as part of a modular layout to make your home office space more interesting. The thick Northern white cedar logs that appear at every corner draw attention while smaller logs spaced evenly down each side serve the practical purpose of holding books in place. No matter what angle you look at it from, the piece offers something beautiful to admire.

    German-peeled logs with mortise and tenon joins create the frame for the Lakeland Log Bookshelf with 5 Shelves. This classic construction provides rugged support for each of the plank-style shelves and results in a smooth appearance that enhances the atmosphere of any room. Enjoy its natural look either unfinished or with a clear coating for the brightest color. Darker honey and “vintage whiskey” stains are also available to make the shelf blend in with a bolder home design.

    If you love books, chances are you have them stashed in other places besides your office. Bring the attractive look of cedar to the living room by taking the five-shelf unit and combining it with other Lakeland bookshelves of varying heights using optional connector shelves. These shelves not only create a unique style but also give you more space for storing your favorite volumes. The result is a custom-made shelving system that you can use for everything from technical manuals to paperback novels. Rearrange the pieces until you have a country furniture setup that’s beautiful, convenient and timeless.

  • Keep Comfort in Mind for Home Office Country Decor

Though you need a desk, filing cabinet, bookshelf and other furniture necessary for your daily work, you can’t forget about comfort when choosing each piece. Others see working from home as a luxury, but you know that it can be just as taxing as working in a regular office building. With this in mind, you’ll want to choose log furniture such as the Cedar Lake Comfort Log Office Chair when putting together your rustic office setup.

    If your back starts to hurt just at the thought of sitting in a log chair all day, the Cedar Lake chair will change your mind. Northern white cedar logs are hand-peeled to accentuate their natural character before being crafted into a one-of-a-kind chair designed with an eye for comfort.

With the built-in hydraulic lift, you’ll always be at just the right height for doing computer work or paperwork. The contoured seat hugs your body so that you can relax even during the toughest tasks.

    An office chair should also make it easy to reach what you need without having to get up. A swivel mechanism and five standard wheels let you turn or roll the Cedar Lake chair wherever you need to go. Sturdy log legs arranged in a star pattern ensure that you’ll always have proper support as you move.

    You don’t have to compromise on style when you choose handcrafted cabin decor for your home office. One look at the Cedar Lake chair and you’ll see how it stands out from modern office furniture. Instead of cold metal and dark colors that project a feeling of austerity, log furniture exudes warmth and charm. Hand-peeling makes each log unique, leaving behind little dots and stripes of inner bark to contrast the attractive honey color of the wood. Finish it off with a clear or honey pine coating for a beautiful country decor touch.

  • Log Furniture Gives Kids Comfortable Homework Space

    The right desks will help get homework doneThe arrival of fall means cooler temperatures, changing leaves and the start of a new school year. Returning to school inevitably brings homework, which can be difficult for kids to tackle until they’ve gotten into the swing of their new schedules. However, if you give kids a place to sit and study quietly after school, completing daily assignments may not seem so daunting.

    Kid-friendly desks such as the Aspen Estate Dark Aspen Log Student Desk provide just enough space for spreading out books and papers. Dark log legs support a solid aspen top and a set of three drawers made to store files and supplies. Smooth, full-extension glides rated at 75lbs. ensure that each drawer will be able to hold everything your child needs when doing homework. Pencils, pens, notebooks and calculators fit perfectly in the two small top drawers; the lower drawer can be used to organize past assignments.

    Hand-peeling boosts the appearance of log furniture by leaving behind bits of bark that accentuate the wood underneath. These dark accents enhance the naturally light color of aspen sapwood and heartwood, creating an eye-catching contrast for your cabin decor. Add a coordinating side chair or arm chair for extra style. Either type of chair provides a comfortable place for kids to sit and work and contributes something special to your overall home design.

    The properties of the wood are what makes aspen furniture a good choice for kids and teens. Aspen has a particular toughness that is reinforced by naturally occurring oils that help it resist damage. Clear lacquer finish gives the Aspen Estate desk more protection and makes it much easier to clean. This is especially important if your kids like to eat or drink while doing homework. Log furniture represents a big investment, and you want it to stay beautiful throughout your child’s school career and beyond.

    It might take a few weeks for the kids to get used to school again, but a study area equipped with reliable log furniture can help get them back in the swing.

  • Log Furniture Makes the Home Office Fun

    Filing cabinets with a rectangular drawer design will give your office a different look.Your home office is a place where you have to be able to concentrate and get work done, be it household necessities like taxes and finances or something that needs to be finished for your day job. Clutter and disorganization detract from this focus, making it hard to put forth your best effort. The less able you are to keep your mind on your work, the less you’re going to get done and the more rushed you’re likely to feel.

    Adding a Cottage Hickory 4 Drawer File Cabinet to your office space helps to tame clutter while enhancing rustic décor at the same time. Solid wood construction with hickory log trim makes for sturdy storage space. Hickory wood is known for its strength and stiffness as well as a resistance to warping. This means you can store your most extensive sets of files without concern over whether or not the cabinet is up to the challenge and know that they’ll be safe when you need to retrieve them later.

    With four drawers arranged in a rectangular pattern, the Cottage Hickory cabinet is a departure from the traditional vertical construction of most file cabinets. In fact, the appearance is more like that of bedroom furniture than office furniture, giving it a comfortable look and feel. Each hickory log used at the edges has the bark left on and is kiln-dried to ensure a specific moisture content and attractive finish. This may be preserved with a clear coating, or you can choose to spruce up the cabinet with a touch of Rustic Maple or Rustic Alder color.

    The inclusion of log furniture in your home office also makes the room more fun to be in. This can be important, since most at-home office work isn’t much fun and can be discouraging if it takes too long. Solid log pieces bring eye-catching charm to a room, so you can have a lovely office space whether you’re stuck at your desk with a batch of files from work or just popping in to check your e-mail.

  • Rustic Office Style With an Executive Feel

    This rustic decor will definitely give you an executive feelBeing able to work from home is a common dream. But it’s not the pajama-clad wonderland that most people picture when they think of staying home all day. Working from home can be harder than working in an office setting. You have to keep on top of things without a boss or coworkers to help you out when it gets crazy. Anyone who has to bring work back from the office gains a new appreciation for the importance of managing time and staying organized.

    Whether you work entirely from home or have a job that sometimes follows you there, part of the equation for success is having a calm, quiet place to work. There’s no point in sticking yourself in a home office setting that you hate. And there’s nothing wrong with feeling relaxed while you work. Log furniture helps to create a peaceful room that radiates a sense of strength and beauty.

    Since most of your work probably requires a desk, something like the Cottage Hickory Executive Log Desk is a good place to start when planning your home office. Individually hand-crafted, this desk features hickory log accents that take it from a plain old workspace to a lovely piece of cottage furniture. Bark is left on the logs, which are then kiln-dried for a unique look. The bottom drawers are built to accommodate hanging file folders, keeping important documents close at hand while you work.

    Rustic décor is all about enjoying your surroundings no matter what you’re doing. Being able to customize log furniture makes it more “your own” and means that you get pieces you can take pleasure in whether you have to spend one hour or ten hours hunkered down in the office. The Cottage Hickory desk may be purchased with one of four finishes: rustic maple, rustic alder, espresso, or clear. You can also choose a liquid glass application for the top of the desk to give it a smooth, glossy appearance that resists damage. This type of personal touch can go a long way toward keeping you sane as you work at home.
