Log Furniture

  • Gather Round, One and All

    What is it about a log fire that makes us feel like the holidays are here, all year round? We love the look of a log fire, but not always the clean up, plus, in a busy living room, every inch of space counts, which is why we dreamt up this incredible piece of furniture. Our Aspen Highlands Rustic Log Fireplace TV Cabinet brings all the storage and display potential you want with the added bonus of an earthy rustic scent and a striking log fire insert too, but guess what? It’s an electric addition!

    We know it’s a little sneaky to include an electric fire, but with the capacity to heat up to 500sq ft, it’s no compromise. You get the look, the warmth and the ambiance of a real log fire, just with none of the mess or upkeep. It’s a dream come true! But then, you realize that this rustic fireplace unit can do so much more than keep you toasty. It’s a state-of-the-art TV display unit as well. 

    Why did we use Aspen for our rustic entertainment center? Because it’s strong, striking to look at and emits a glorious rustic scent that makes you feel as though you’re deep in the woods. A smooth and level top surface is ideal for standing a large screen on, with a discreet cut-out alcove below that is made for smaller tech, such as games consoles and blu ray players.  With all cables trailing to the back, the finished look is clean and modern, but everything is exactly where you need it. No compromising function for style here!

    Flanking the very realistic fire insert you’ll see two cabinets, complete with log handles and clear glazing. Each has a shelf inside for your storage convenience, but can you spot the surprise? That’s right, the solid wood above the fire? That’s a super smooth-gliding drawer complete with dovetail joints. Ideal for remotes and controllers that always disappear when you need them the most! 

    Now to the nitty gritty. We need some time to build a unit of this size and quality,  we’ll say a huge thank you by shipping to you at our own cost and with a full year’s warranty in place. Your new unit will arrive protected with an undetectable clear finish, in pristine condition, ready to be the worthy new focal point in your most relaxing and sociable space.

    Love the style but need something a different size, with more drawers or different shelves? We are no strangers to custom commissions, so please see this particular unit as your potential springboard to creativity and get in touch to tell us more.

  • Out of Sight But Never Out of Mind

    Great storage needs to do two things: provide ample space for stowing personal belongings and know how to blend in with a wider design aesthetic. It’s that second mandate that so many designs seem to struggle with, but not our Aspen Highlands Rustic Log Small Corner Cabinet

    Discreet, demure and built to last, our Highlands rustic corner display unit is the perfect combination of striking to look at yet not overpowering in an already decorated space. It’s just a little bonus nuance to add to the dead space in a forgotten corner and one that can help you display treasured collectables that have been languishing in a cabinet. That’s not to say that it can’t hide away a little mess too though!

    We went with open shelves to give you easy access to your display pieces, but then finished with a door-fronted cabinet. We keep the inherent rustic majesty of the Aspen alive by using log front detailing on the door and would you just look at that bark edging throughout? We think it’s the perfect amount of natural and organic, without pushing the rustic theme into gimmicky, making it ideal for any cabin, lodge or home. But the burning question is, what can it store?

    We don’t want to assume how you’ll use your new favorite storage item, but could we suggest a few options? Oh go on. Indulge us!

    • A small home bar set-up. All your cut crystal and beautiful glasses can go on the shelves with favorite tipples safely and securely shut away in the base cabinet.
    • A rustic trophy display. Got a budding athlete in the family or some trophies from your college days you’d like to show off? This is the perfect space for doing so, without being too ostentatious about it.
    • Family photo nook. One of our favorite ideas is to use this corner display as a special homage to your family. Framed pictures can be nestled on the shelves, making a charming and sentimental space.

    Whatever you choose to do with your rustic aspen corner cabinet, it will be shipped to you, free of charge within the contiguous states, complete with a protective but subtle clear finish. It will also have a full year’s warranty, for your continued peace of mind. 

    We ask you to be patient once your order is placed. We handcraft all of our pieces to your specifications and with timber specifically selected by our craftspeople. This all takes time. You won’t find any flatpack or pre-made pieces in our showrooms or workshops, but what you’ll have delivered is a strong, USA designed and made piece of furniture that you can treasure for many years to come. Isn’t that worth waiting a little longer for? And seeing as you’ll need to wait a few weeks for your delivery, why not take an extra minute to think if there are any special adjustments or dimensions you would like us to work with? You know we never shy away from a custom adaptation!

  • Simple Ways to Preserve the Lifespan of Solid Wood Furniture

    Solid wood rustic furniture can require a significant up front financial investment, especially if you are buying a lot of it, which is why it’s in your best interest to learn how best to take care of it. When looked after properly, real wood pieces can last a lifetime, evolving with time to be a showcase of your history and experiences (and will save you money in the long term). We love the romance involved with owning solid wood rustic furniture and encourage you to read on and find out how you can make your treasured items last forever.

    Coasters are not optional

    We cannot stress enough how important it is to use coasters. Any drink, hot or cold, can leave a mark on your solid wood furniture, as well as helping moisture ingress. If you don’t want to ruin your perfectly curated rustic aesthetic, why not choose some wooden coasters that blend in with your furniture, so that you can protect while you maintain your look.

    Ask your maker for advice

    Any reputable log furniture maker should be delighted to advise you how best to look after your item. We recommend asking about this before you commit to a purchase, because if you encounter resistance, you might find that any warranty claims will also be a struggle. Here at Log Furniture Place, we are always delighted to help our customers to look after their investments and are happy to talk about how we finish items and what cleaning products can be used with our topcoats.

    Decide whether to repair or retain 

    Scratches, marks and nicks happen, especially when you own something for a long amount of time, so make sure you have a plan. Will you keep the marks and see them as a natural evolution that’s occurred through use and time or will you want to repair them and try to maintain the original visage? Be aware that repairs might not always restore something to its full glory, but even the most annoying and avoidable scratches can become loved, over time, because of the story behind them.  With rustic furniture scratches, nicks and marks can add to the look of the piece also.

    Be consistent

    The key to maintaining is to be consistent, so have ground rules in place for use and commit to a regular schedule of cleaning/oiling is appropriate. This is where coasters and placemats will come in, as well as strict guidelines for things like candles and oil diffusers.

    Don’t DIY if you’re not confident

    If you’re not confident carrying out a repair or some maintenance, leave it to an expert. It will cost you less to have them do it initially, rather than fixing your mistake and then carrying out the original task, plus they should offer a warranty for their work as well. Even something as simple as using the wrong grade of sandpaper on a rustic dining table top could have a devastating effect on a beautiful item, so when in doubt, call the professionals out!

    Solid wood furniture is stoic, sturdy and made to be used and loved, but that doesn’t mean that you have to let it get tattered or neglected. Some simple care duties will keep it in tip top condition and let you reap the rewards of a one-in-a-lifetime purchase.

  • Double Down on Your Sensory Pleasure

    A log bed that feels good is a must, but what if you could have one that smells dreamy as well? No, we’re not talking about your fabric conditioner choices, but rather, the wood your frame is made from and how it can fill your bedroom with a beautiful, natural aroma guaranteed to help you drift off to sleep.

    We know it sounds like a tall order, to get a log bed that does what it’s supposed to but also has an added bonus of smelling really damn good, but we’ve managed it with our Aspen Highlands Double Rail Log Bed, simply by using one of our favorite woods. Aspen has a naturally herbal, fresh and almost meditative scent to it that lingers but doesn’t overpower and brings a soothing energy to any space it is placed in. It makes perfect sense, therefore, that it should be put to great use as a stunning, not to mention sleep-inducing bed.

    We’ve kept our signature spindled logs design detailing in place and added a double headboard rail, for some added glamor and interest, without going overboard. If you like your bedroom furniture simple rustic and stylish then this is the bed for you, complete with hidden metal side rails and supplied support slats. We still let you choose a couple of the pertinent details though, including size of frame and how high you like your footboard. Don’t forget to think about the tallest sleeper when making this last decision, as our low profile option will ensure that feet can hang comfortably off the edge, without getting tangled in logs!

    Aspen is a naturally beautiful wood that needs nothing more than a clear finish to protect and bring out the best in it. All those knotty details and natural patina marks look fantastic under a topcoat and help to bring out the organic character in your big bedroom centerpiece. Don’t forget that if you keep your bed natural, that paves the way to add some rustic furniture as well, without the room feeling too cluttered or overbearing. 

    Finish your new rustic bed off perfectly with some organic cotton bed linen and comforters, to amp up the rustic flair without making it feel like a novelty theme and rest easy that your delivery will be free to most parts of the USA and come complete with a full year’s warranty on your bed frame. When you buy a domestic product, you are directly supporting small American industry and we take that responsibility seriously, hence we give you endless customer service support and an easy return/replace procedure too. 

    Looks good, smells great and feels amazing. What more could you ask for in a new aspen log bed?

  • Adding Flair To Your Yard in 5 Easy Steps

    If you love a rustic aesthetic and your home is a fitting tribute to the style, make sure that you’re not overlooking the potential of your yard to follow suit with outdoor log furniture.

    Rustic homes are always gorgeous and have such a cozy and welcoming vibe but what about the yards that surround them? With just a few simple additions, that timeless and inviting aesthetic can be extended out into open air spaces as well, but which are worth the investment? Read on to find out!

    The ultimate porch swing

    Is your home even rustic if you don’t have a sturdy porch swing in place? You need somewhere to sit and look out over your estate, cocktail in hand, or maybe just a coffee if it’s the morning. Bringing all the southern charm that a rustic home needs, we love porch swings for the dose of nostalgia they bring to literally any home. 

    Swingsets for the kids

    It’s one thing to have a design style for your home, but if it’s a family house, you have to think about what the younger members need too. Luckily, you can pick up a range of beautiful garden play sets, with swings, slides and lookouts built-in, while staying true to a more organic and rustic aesthetic. And an added bonus, the more a playset is used, the more it will weather, patina and blend into the wider rustic feel too. 

    Picnic tables for family fun

    There’s a lot of talk about creating outdoor seating and eating spaces that feel like a living room, but for us? Nothing beats a rustic picnic table with bench. That’s real family eating and communing, not to mention that during an unforgettable cookout, everyone loves hitting the picnic benches for salads, rolls and all the good stuff that doesn’t come off the grill. 

    You can have some fun with your benches too, by staining them a fun color and adding a little modern rustic chic into the mix. We’ve been really enjoying the trend for pastel outdoor benches that has sprung up in recent years.

    Loungers with character

    Catch those rays but in a rustic way, with wooden loungers that are designed to feel as good as they look. Adirondack chair styles maximize your back support and viewing pleasure and they certainly look better than cheap plastic versions, or worse yet, tacky deck chairs! Always try to display your loungers in pairs, as they look more chic and deliberate that way, not to mention being more sociable.

    Small decorative touches

    Finally, don’t forget all those charming little trinkets and additions that you can find in thrift shops, at antique fairs or in our shop! Things like forged metal weather vanes, house signs, hanging basket brackets, garden sculptures and of course, gorgeous mailboxes. It’s those small touches that will bring an entire theme together. We’ve always been partial to the odd cart wheel as well, but that might be our love of reclaimed barns manifesting in home decor accessories.

    Don’t simply close your door and forget about your yard. When it comes to inclusive and well-conceived design, it pays to draw your interior inspiration out into your external space too and with rustic homes, it couldn’t be easier. That’s the joy of solid wood and it’s timeless appeal!

  • Dreaming of Luxury Log Bunk Beds? Look No Further

    If you’ve never thought of log bunk beds as being particularly upmarket sleeping solutions before, you’re about to change your mind. Very quickly too.

    We understand that rustic bunk beds have hardly been the last word in chic bedroom furniture choices in recent years. In fact, they have always been more of a perfunctory choice, giving you maximum accommodation for minimal space sacrifice, but there is a way to bring looks and functionality together into one gorgeous and long-lasting package. Let us tell you how.

    Style and solid construction

    We prioritize the look and build quality of our log bunk beds equally. After all, what’s the point in having a stunning bed if it falls apart at the first mattress flop, or a solid unit that looks awful? Our Backwoods Deluxe Log bunk bed takes our regular aesthetic and adds a little something extra with more intricate side rails, turned log detailing and a more stoic rustic finish. 

    Still built from pine, you get all the benefits of a timber that doesn’t shrink, creates a solid build and yet allows itself to age and patina gracefully. Us? We like pine because although it’s referred to as a soft wood, it has strength where you need it and the ability to accept a few marks, dents and scratches from cherished use. We think this is just character and when you own a piece of furniture for years, you want to see little reminders of the good times, right?

    We’ve kept the options the same as our non-deluxe version, with twin-over-twin or twin-over-full size options. The benefits of a full-size bottom bunk are numerous and mean that in a kids room, the bed can grow as your youngsters do too, because no teen wants a twin bed, do they? But in a small guest space or a young child’s room, the smaller version will be handy and unobtrusive.

    We finish your rustic bunk bed with a simple clear coat, because the pine is gorgeous enough as it is, but if you want to discuss something different or a specific color finish, you are most welcome to get in touch with us to talk about it. We are always happy to advise and accommodate custom requests, where we can.

    The pride of the USA

    We know that there are other bunk bed options out there, but most will be flat-pack styles that can’t endure heavy use. There’s also an added benefit to buying from us and that’s the fact that you’ll be getting a real piece of American pride. Designed and built entirely in our home-grown workshop, you’ll be supporting a fully domestic product and company when you buy a Backwoods Log bunk bed from Log Furniture Place and that’s why we offer free shipping within the contiguous 48 states, to say a big thank you to our fellow patriots. All you need to do is choose your size and side rail styles, then wait for us to deliver, not only your new bunk bed, but also on our promise to supply the best quality solid wood bedroom furniture.

  • 7 Design Details That Wood Artisans Look For

    What makes a nice piece of solid wood rustic furniture a truly inspired item? It’s the little finishing touches and small details that, to an untrained eye, could be easily overlooked. 

    We never forget about the special touches that guarantee our customers the very best and here are just a few that we showcase. 

    The right handles

    We know that handles might seem insignificant to some, but we think they can make or break a perfectly beautiful rustic design. That’s why we usually seek to offer a choice of log or forged metal strap handles, to maintain a truly rustic and appropriate aesthetic, while also keeping quality craftsmanship as our top priority. No cheap finishing touches here, thank you very much!

    Ornate carvings

    Wood carving is an art and few people are able to master it to such a degree that they can be trusted to adorn a finished piece of rustic furniture. It takes precision, patience and a keen eye for material inconsistencies, which is why you have to work with only the best artists. A bad carving will instantly ruin an otherwise gorgeous item but beautifully executed carvings? Well they will just take things to a whole extra level.

    Seamless joints

    Solid wood rustic and log furniture appeals because it is timeless, has natural heritage and assumed longevity. That’s why choosing and executing the perfect joints is crucial. Lazy joinery relies on glue and fixings but real craftsmanship can be seen in the expertly cut dovetails and tenons that offer the perfect amount of strength and beauty combined. 

    Liquid glass finishes

    Not every rustic furniture piece works with a liquid glass finish but for those few, such as stunning Black walnut tables, the perfectly smooth and glossy end finish is an immaculate way to present something extra special. It takes more time and requires a practiced hand, but you deserve nothing less for your home. 

    Perfectly bookmatched pieces

    Bookmatching slabs of wood for larger items, such as striking dining tables, might sound simple on the face of it but getting it right is a lot more difficult in practice. There needs to be an appreciation of the grain and flow of the wood and pieces need to be properly prepared and brought together, to form one stunning slice of timber. Just one imperfection and the whole top could be ruined.

    Respect for the materials

    You can’t work with wood every day and not respect the material itself. We certainly do and are thankful for everything it gives us, including a creative outlet, a way to contribute to our local economy and a meaningful living. With that in mind, we relish the opportunity to demonstrate this with some understated and more raw designs. Using organic roots, we let the beauty of the material that we depend on shine through and take center stage. No gimmicks, no fancy finishes, just mother nature and her finest work.

    Complimentary additions

    Finally, if other materials are to be used, they need to work well with natural wood, without overshadowing it. Forged metal, finished in neutral black is a great option, as is copper with a little patina. Anything that is too at odds with the wood itself will simply cheapen the overall aesthetic and disrupt the furniture. 

    These are just a few features that wood aficionados will look for when inspecting potential furniture purchases. Why not try keeping your eyes peeled for some of them in the future too?

  • A Linen Closet But Also So Much More

    When is a rustic linen closet not just a linen closet? When it is so beautiful that it dictates the entire bathroom design scheme, while being made from the most stunning and aromatic wood around. Sound like a dream or maybe a fantasy? Come with us as we show you how we brought it to life!

    Do you know how we know that we are different from most other solid rustic wood furniture makers? Because what most would find boring or uninspiring, we take pride in making exceptional. Take functional storage items as a key example. Are linen closets traditionally the most enthralling pieces of furniture in the world? No, of course not. But should they be given the luxury treatment and designed with timeless style, easy functionality and envy-inducing aesthetics in mind? We believe they should, which is why our Rustic Red Cedar Log Linen Closet is anything but an afterthought. 

    Why rustic red cedar? Well, just look at it! Exuding a warm and decadent ambience, it’s impossible to not admire what an impact it would have in a bathroom of any size. Add in the natural perfume that it emits and you will be left in no doubt as to why this is the king of woods for rustic bathroom furniture

    We know that not all bathrooms are generous in stature and that’s why we give you plenty of sizes to choose from, while always maintaining the slim yet tall appeal of the overall design. We think it adds a little gravitas to a typically under utilized room. We ask you to choose the height, width and depth of your closet, along with your hinge orientation. From there we ask if you’d prefer mini log handles or metal ones and finally, if you need extra shelves inside. Don’t forget that this log linen closet needs to work for you, so don’t be shy about adding more organization potential. With your preferences in place, we then finish your handmade rustic linen closet with a protective clear coat and ship to you, totally free of charge. But that’s not all, because we have one last surprise.

    Is it industry standard to supply a gratis lifetime warranty on solid wood bathroom furniture? No. Are we doing it anyway? ABSOLUTELY. We know that not everybody will feel immediately confident investing in a piece of exquisite craftsmanship for the wettest space in the home, but we know that our design and construction is the best there is, which is why we have no qualms offering a lifetime warranty with our red cedar linen closet. Interior design trends may come and go but your linens can always be housed in your favorite purchase. American-made and built on a legacy of real wood furniture expertise, this is one item you’ll never have to buy again, but if you need extra reassurance, simply get in touch. We’d love to tell you more about this fabulous item and the pieces that coordinate with it.

  • 5 Key Tips to Care for Solid Wood Furniture

    With the right care and attention, solid wood rustic furniture will last a lifetime and beyond. The question is, what do you need to do on a daily basis to ensure this impressive lifespan?

    It’s tough, durable and ageless but solid wood furniture, stoic as it is, needs a little love and care, just like the rest of us. Use the following five tips to make sure your timber investments are looked after.

    1. Deal with spills immediately

    Let’s say you’ve invested in a beautiful live edge coffee table. You don’t want to be dealing with water marks the day after you’ve set it in place, so let’s start with a quick note about prevention always being better than cure. Coasters are solid wood furniture’s friends. Best friends in fact! Always use them and try to avoid spills where possible.

    If the worst happens and you do get a spill, speed is the key. Soak up the bulk of a spill with paper towels, before moving to a soft but damp cloth and finally, buffing dry with a totally dry and buttery soft piece of fabric. You can see why we said prevention is better now, can’t you? 

    2. Be careful with hot items

    If you place a hot vessel on top of a piece of solid wood furniture you run the risk of either a stain or a scorch mark. Both can be incredibly tough to remove, but a fine gauge wire wool can help or if that sounds a little too scary, start with trying to disguise the mark with a color-matched wood crayon. 

    We recommend using cork placemats when you know that a hot item needs to be placed on solid wood, as these are soft on the underside and will block direct heat transfer.

    3. Dust as regularly as you can

    The more love you give wood furniture the better it looks, so try to at least commit to a weekly dusting of all your items. Even the things you normally forget, like a master bed! Always use a soft polishing cloth to avoid leaving scratches and use a polish that you like the finish and smell of. Silicone-free versions seem to react less with existing wax finishes, so are proving popular, though beeswax versions have always produced beautiful results. 

    4. Consider placement from the start

    Being a natural material, wood is prone to temperature change effects, either swelling or contracting throughout the year. You can try to counter this as much as possible by thinking about where you are going to position pieces. Avoid direct sunlight where possible, as well as heat sources such as wood burners and when it comes to bathrooms, make sure that your furniture has been designed and made with humid conditions in mind. Not all vanity units and linen closets are!

    5. Treat any damage

    Accidents happen but negligence is inexcusable! If you notice a bad scratch, a chip or a gouge in any of your pieces, treat the damage as soon as you can. Appropriate fillers and liquid polishes are great for this, but if in doubt, get back in touch with your manufacturer. If they have a good customer service ethos, they should be only too happy to give you some advice.

    A little care for a lifetime of functional beauty. That sounds like a fair exchange to us and hopefully you feel the same!

  • 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!
