Key Furniture Pieces for Rustic Home Design

You don’t need to own a cabin in the woods or a lodge to know that rustic furniture is charming, gorgeous and homey, but certain pieces carry more weight than others, especially when you’re looking to capture an authentic rustic look. 

Are you planning to overhaul your home and can’t wait to inject some seriously rustic vibes into your interior design scheme? Then don’t snooze on these seven must-have pieces of rustic furniture that will transform any home into a cozy cabin.

1. The ultimate farmhouse dining table

Family memories are made around the dining table and no rustic home is complete without a big, stoic and traditional farmhouse design. You should keep your eyes peeled for something with a thick and chunky top, a trestle base and matching chairs or benches, for the full effect. A live edge version could also work well too, especially in a more contemporary home that wants to balance the rustic touches.

Our recommendation: The Timber Haven dining set

2. Bunk beds for the kids

Nothing says a weekend away in a cabin like rustic timber bunk beds that the kids will fight over! Add some flannel bedding for the ultimate finishing touch too and maybe even some cute little taxidermy trophies for a real woodsy bedroom vibe. 

3. A media center to focus on

Given how much time is spent in the living room of snug, it makes sense to make your main piece of furniture rustic in style, if you are trying to bring some heritage charm into play. A rustic media center, designed to perfectly house a television, sound system and all those game consoles will offer an easy focal point that lets you slowly build on the rustic theme in other parts of the space. 

Our recommendation: The Beaver Creek Aspen Entertainment Center.

4. Hallway dressers that make a statement

Busy homes need storage. A lot of storage. One key part of the home is the hallway, where coats, shoes and general items seem to just gather overnight, which is why a large dresser can be a fantastic investment. Even if you have nothing else of a rustic style in the hallway, a large multi-drawer dresser will add plenty of charm, not to mention practicality too. 

5. A powerful desk in the home office

A properly rustic home, with an interior design scheme that is really committed to, will always include those weird and often overlooked rooms, like a home office. Instead of simply making do with a flatpack desk, treat yourself and your home to a real statement piece that will last a lifetime. A solid wood rustic desk is an investment in not only your home’s aesthetic but also your productivity. 

6. The bathroom furniture that speaks for itself

Rustic bathrooms? Yes! We aren’t talking about old fashioned toilets here, but beautiful solid wood vanity units, laundry cabinets and all those small but detail-orientated accessories, like wooden toilet roll holders. Even in an otherwise fully contemporary bathroom, a well placed hickory log vanity unit will make a splash for all the right reasons.

Our recommendation: Real Hickory Rustic Bathroom Vanity.

7. A master bed that has to be seen to be believed

Finally, for the ultimate rustic home design addition, don’t forget to treat yourself to a gorgeous master log or barn wood bed, made from hand selected logs or timbers, by proud artisans. Look for statement headboards, hidden storage and construction of such high quality that your chosen frame comes with a long warranty. And go as gnarly as you dare with the frame too, because you can always add some softness back in with your choice of bedding. 

A great way to contrast with otherwise fresh and modern decor, rustic furniture brings all the charm of a traditional cabin into play, but with no sacrifice of creature comforts. Perfect!
