  • The Contrast Your Bathroom Is Crying Out For

    Bathroom design tends to focus around matching rustic vanity and suite pieces that capture the right feeling of modernity and convenience but what if you added something back in, to balance the finished vibe? 

    We totally understand the desire for a fresh, clean and contemporary bathroom. There’s no place for anything less than a sparkling and hygienic feel, but that doesn’t mean that you have to go without character and charm. After all, if you’re relaxing in the tub, you might like something gorgeous to look at! That’s why we’ve taken the time to create our Adirondack Hickory Rustic Log Vanity, which combines stunning good looks with a welcome dose of heritage styling and all the practicality that you need too. 

    It’s a tale as old as time. A manufacturer is so intent on making something that looks great that they miss the mark in terms of functionality. Worse still is the other way around, whereby a piece of furniture works well but looks so slap dash that we’re embarrassed for them! You can’t rush perfection and that’s why we invested thought, time and development into our entire Adirondack log furniture range.

    In terms of practicality, we know you’ll enjoy the multiple drawers and storage cabinets. Designed with bathroom essentials and personal items in mind, you can rest easy that everything you could possibly need in the bathroom is to hand, but out of sight, creating an organized and unfussy room. We also give you the opportunity to get really selective about the size of rustic vanity you need, the orientation on where you want your sinks. All of these extra details allow you to get the most bespoke and perfect piece of bathroom furniture possible, without paying a premium for what we simply consider to be good customer service. 

    With your preferences relayed, we can get to making your gorgeous log vanity in our Michigan workshop. Bringing together smooth white cedar with tactile hickory, the contrast of the two woods will intrigue and delight, bringing traditional cabins and lodges to mind. Don’t forget that if you prefer your rustic detailing on the more discreet side, you can select metal strap handles for the drawers and cabinets, instead of small hickory logs and you won’t lose any of the overall charm by doing so. 

    Finally, why not think about the finish you want. This is where your bathroom color scheme will play a huge role, as your wooden vanity unit can either complement or contrast. Either way, it will be the start of the show, so take your time deciding. Thanks to the natural diversity between the two woods, a clear finish would look phenomenal, though the Barnwood Lager is a firm favorite with our customers for good reason. And as a bonus, if you purchase a drop-in sink at the same time, we are happy to cut the requisite hole in the top for you. 

    Shipped for free within the US, our Adirondack Hickory Log vanity comes with a limited lifetime warranty and our promise that you won’t find a better quality or more considered item for your bathroom.

  • 5 Reasons Why Live Edge Rustic Furniture Suits Every Home

    Live edge rustic furniture might look, at first glance, like something that only belongs in rustic cabins but actually it’s a style of design that has universal appeal and potential. 

    If you’ve been thinking about live edge rustic furniture items and wondering if you should take the plunge, read our five reasons why it will prove to be a good investment and one that doesn’t rely on you living deep in the nearest woodland. 

      1. It can be rustic, modern or classic

    Here’s the crux of the matter. Live edge furniture can be whatever you want it to be, just like any natural wood item. Why? Because it all depends on the shape, styling and corresponding items. Take a single slab dining table with a live edge. Add a chunky wooden base and you have a rustic eating spot. Swap that out for sleek gold anodized metal legs and you have a contemporary finish. Sit it on a pared back trestle base and you have a classic motif. The live edge lament stays the same, but everything else can adapt the tone. 

      2. Each piece is unique

    With every live edge creation being entirely one-off and unique, there is no way to compare an item in two separate settings. What does this mean? That it belongs and looks right in both, equally. The same can’t be said for most furniture, as one home will always seem to suit an item more than another. That’s why IKEA pieces quickly fall out of fashion, because they saturate the market and are easily compared, often between friends and family members’ houses. 

      3. Most budgets can be catered for

    Does live edge rustic furniture have a reputation for being cheap? No. But it can include a number of price points. Certain decisions allow you to tailor your purchase including thickness of your slab, if it is one piece or two, the wood used and the age of the wood too. When you think about how huge and therefore old a tree would need to be to produce a colossal dining table live edge slab, two inches thick, you can understand why it would cost a lot. Do be aware though that thinner slabs have more of a tendency to warp or twist, so sometimes, a larger investment initially pays off.

      4. It can be repaired

    Because this style of rustic furniture doesn’t look traditionally perfect, repairing live edge is easily possible. Even if a slab checks/cracks down the middle! Some contrasting wooden bowties can be used to stitch two pieces of wood back together and adds more character and charm. Unlike antique furniture that needs costly and specialist repairs to look perfect, live edge furniture items can accommodate some history and quirks.

      5. It’s not a fad

    Finally, live edge furniture is not a trend, so it won’t ever date or go out of style. That means however you redecorate, it will always look gorgeous. It’s a classic style that allows natural wood, the king of design materials, to allow its organic beauty and uniqueness to shine through. 

    Are you ready to invest in a piece of raw beauty for your home? Why not check out our designs and see if the perfect piece is waiting for you?

  • Simple Charm for the Smallest Room in the House

    We know not all bathrooms are small, but they are meant to be a spot for a little calm self-indulgence. That’s why we’ve designed a range of rustic furniture pieces that add a rustic ambience and character, without overshadowing the entire space. 

    Just because we decided to keep things a little less dramatic with our Olde Towne log bathroom vanity, it doesn’t mean that it’s any less beautiful or worthy of a place in your home. We just know that though our extra rustic designs are eye-catching, they might not work with a hybrid or more contemporary interior design scheme. We want to be able to offer a wide range of styles, to not only show versatility but also a commitment to our wide-ranging clientele and we think this particular piece is something rather special, even if it is simple. 

    So what makes this log vanity so exceptional? Firstly, all of the Olde Towne range of rustic furniture is made in Michigan, by hand. This allows us to respect the white cedar being used and to give it a little extra love while we fashion it into cherished rustic furniture items. Secondly, we give you the rustic look you want, without going too overboard. You’ll find authentic saw marks, hand carved logs and little age marks on your vanity, all of which lend themselves to the narrative of the piece itself. The finish is smooth to the touch but utterly beguiling to the eyes and with the aesthetics taken care of, we can get down to the all-important issue of personalization.

    You can decide the following, without compromising on the finished look of your new Olde Towne log vanity unit:

    • Size. We offer standard sizes from 24"-72" but always feel free to contact us about something totally bespoke. No dimensions are too awkward.
    • Top. You can have your vanity supplied with or without a top.
    • Sink position. Are you having one or two sinks? Where do they need to be placed? For copper sinks that we supply, we can cut the holes ready for you. Vessel sinks will need to be fitted by a professional and we do not cut holes for them.
    • Finish. We might be huge fans of our proprietary Barnwood Lager stain, which gives the look and feel of genuine barnwood to such an extent that even experts will fail to spot the difference, but we have more to choose from. A clear finish is always offered, if you love the tone and natural look of the white cedar. 
    • Orientation. Tell us where in your bathroom your vanity will be placed and we can make allowances for perfect fitment, at no extra cost to you.
    • Handles. Forged metal strap or log handles? The choice is yours and both are made by artisans. 

    We also have a range of complementary accessories, including log wall mirrors, which can be shipped alongside your vanity. Supplied with a limited lifetime warranty and shipped for free within the US, we know you’ll love this unit forever and can’t wait to talk with you about your order.

  • Artisan Craftsmanship Especially for Your Bathroom

    There’s always a few pieces of rustic furniture that take our breath away. We visualize, design and bring them to life but they still blow us away when we see them in the flesh, which is what happens whenever we see our rustic bathroom vanity units.

    Are there different shades to the rustic aesthetic? We think so. There are lighter, more delicate ways to embrace a little country charm but then there are the unapologetically pared back, unfussy but striking motifs that look as though they have been ripped out of the forest floor and just anchored into a dwelling. Our Westcliffe Pointe Rustic vanity  falls in-between the two. 

    Dark, rugged and texturally fascinating, this is bathroom craftsmanship like you’ve never seen before. And why? Because we have the most talented team in the world, wanting to hand make authentic rustic furniture that loses none of the organic power of the wood being used. That’s why there’s no delicate touch here.

    Circle sawn planks, hand-carved logs, stacked teak wooden bricks, everything comes together to make a tactile and unforgettable centerpiece for any master bath. Yes, it has a certain amount of industrial flavor to it, with metal strap or carved log handles, but would you expect anything less? This is function meeting phenomenal aesthetics in a cloud of creative genius and honestly, we couldn’t love it more. That’s how we know you’ll go crazy for it too, hence we have made allowances for all of our usual customization options. 

    All you need to tell us is how big the space you have to fill is, where it is in your room (between walls, against one wall etc) and we can help you with the rest. One sink or two? Which stain finish takes your fancy? Do you need to adapt the orientation? Have you decided which style of handle you want? Get excited people, because this is a proprietary design from Log Furniture Place, that you can tailor and tweak to your exacting specifications. Unlike so many competitors, we want your input and no request is inconvenient. And for very good reason.

    You need to adore this log vanity unit when it arrives, via free shipping in the US, to your home. Because we will have invested our time, expertise and care to such an extent that we feel confident in giving you a long lasting warranty as standard. There’s no room for error here, because you are going to have this investment piece forever, so let’s take the time to nail down every possible choice, every design nuance and functionality issue. Let’s also think about supplying the sinks, whether vessel or copper, to make it an easier installation for your plumber and how about a log mirror too? 

    With free shipping included, you might want to place a sizable order, to upgrade your bathroom in one go, but we know this can be a big financial investment. With this in mind, we’ve partnered with Bread to offer our customers access to easy, transparent and trustworthy financing packages. There is no obligation but you might find that you can afford those coveted purchases earlier than you thought. 

  • Catch of the Day

    There’s no denying that squirrels are one of Mother Nature’s sweetest creations. Whether scampering around on the woodland floor looking for nuts or gracefully winding their way up a tree trunk, they catch the eye and invoke loud “ahhhhs” and now, they can take up a position in your home!

    No, we haven’t gone mad and we aren’t suggesting that you bring wild animals into your property, but if you love nature, enjoy outdoor pursuits and have a rustic vibe in your house, we know you are going to love our whimsical squirrel fishing trophy.

    Just look at this little chap! He’s pleased as punch with his catch and looks ready to head back to the lake to try his luck again, though we could maybe joke that it ran out when he was caught and mounted! Looking just as alert and alive as you would want, the shiny eyes, smooth fur and fun accessories are all testament to our artisans’ hard work to preserve and respect each specimen. Unlike some taxidermy stockists, we don’t skimp on the level of care and attention invested into each mount. We use the finest materials, from the solid wood plinths our creations are mounted on, to the animals themselves and everything in between. We work with the best tanners in the country and guarantee all of our pieces for a lifetime, which makes sense, when you think about it.

    Taxidermy has always been an art form designed to be passed down through generations of a family, with every piece being more loved and enjoyed with each bequeathal. Yes, our little fisherman squirrel might be a bit of fun and designed to inspire a giggle, but for families that love outdoor pursuits and sportsmanship, we can see him becoming a much coveted display piece. 

    We don’t think there is any limit as to where pieces such as this can be displayed. Anywhere in a rustic cabin, lodge or cottage would be a perfect display opportunity, bringing the great outdoors inside, with a good pinch of humor along the way. Though we also think this would work well in a modern home, as a conversation starter and most of all, in a games room. If you’ve ever wondered how to decorate a man cave or games room, quirky taxidermy should be at the top of your wish list. We don’t know about you, but we can see this proud and puffed up little chap sitting nicely next to one of your own fishing mounts!

    We have plenty of other unusual and lighthearted trophies to choose from, so if you like the idea of a sport-specific piece, take a look at some of our other designs and please remember that customizing is never too much work. We don’t expect you to compromise when it comes to decorating your home, so just ask us how we can tailor our designs to be more bespoke!

  • For the Football Fan That Has Everything

    If you have a football fan in your life, you’ll know the pain of trying to think up a unique gift idea that they’ll love, at least twice a year! Look no further, as we have the ultimate in cute, funny and high quality trophies, with this little raccoon guaranteeing you a gift-giving touchdown.

    Our football raccoon trophy is the best of every world. A slice of real America, thanks to the combination of quality taxidermy, the football theme and the nod to sportsmanship that only a mount such as this can make, we know that outdoor enthusiasts will go wild for this little critter. Really, it’s the ideal present for anyone that enjoys both hunting and football, as how else can you combine the two?

    They might be a huge pest when near your home, but you can’t deny that coons are hella cute to look at. Those pretty little masked faces, soft fur and alert ears make for a sweet aesthetic, even if their personalities don’t match! Here, you get all the cute factor with none of the ravaged trash cans and debris. You can even personalize the final design, should you wish to. Gifting this mount to an ardent Patriots fan? Let’s paint the helmet to reflect that! Going the extra mile comes naturally to us, so don’t hesitate to tell us how we can make every item you buy from us that bit more tailored and perfect. 

    Though this might be a novelty item and flirting with the whimsical side of taxidermy design, you can expect and enjoy only the highest quality. We guarantee our display pieces for a lifetime and in the case of these eye-catching mounts we want you to be able to pass them down to multiple generations, as something of a fun heirloom. With this in mind, we only select the finest leather, tanners and artists to work with, in order to deliver you a tactile, durable and lifelike mount that can be placed anywhere.

    Can you picture a football raccoon mount in your rustic lodge, cabin or cottage? What about pride of place next to some football trophies? We don’t even think it would be silly to buy one of these as a gift for any varsity star going off to college! 

    When our critters are in stock and need no customization, we aim to ship to you within just six working days. We know you don’t want to wait for a long time to introduce your new family member! Naturally, bespoke items will take longer to complete and while every animal is different, meaning that each mount is entirely unique, what you can see here is a faithful representation of the styling, proportions and overall stature of the trophy you will receive. 

  • Raiders of the Lost Snack!

    Ask any sportsman and they’ll tell you that there’s only one good kind of raccoon and that’s one that’s been stuffed and displayed in their lodge! We couldn’t agree more, which is why we have designed this amusing centerpiece that immortalizes the pesky critter doing what it does best: raiding your trash for snacks!

    Some people might think raccoons are cute and from an aesthetic point of view we agree, but if you've ever had a coon problem, you’ll know what a pest they are. The annoyingness of them digging through your garbage quickly outweighs how pretty their little masked faces are unless...you invest in a fun little stuffed trophy.

    We think we’ve really captured the inherent cheekiness of raccoons with Cracker Jack Raccoon trophy that maximizes the ‘awww’ factor without any of the clean-up that these creatures normally necessitate. It’s the perfect combination. What’s more, we haven’t compromised quality for novelty value either. Yes, this critter has been positioned cradling a Cracker Jack box, like a little prized possession, but he himself has been prepared, stuffed and finished to the highest standards. His fur is silky soft to the touch, his whiskers look almost as though they are still twitching keenly and his eyes are shiny and bright, because he needs to look as nature intended him, even when in your home.

    Can’t you just imagine this naughty little creature being positioned somewhere pertinent in your rustic home? We like to imagine that you all play little games with our trophies, positioning them around your homes to surprise and make other members of your household laugh, or maybe squeal! Us? We might be tempted to place this little piece near an indoor bin, to see if you can fool anybody, before moving him around the house to play more practical jokes. 

    One thing is certain: wherever you place your raccoon taxidermy trophy, he will be well received. We take the time to work with the best tanners and masters of the taxidermy craft. The result is the most lifelike and natural trophy possible, which will last generations to come. In fact, we are so proud of the pieces we offer, we send them to you with a lifetime guarantee, because we know they can withstand regular use, even over decades of display.

    Now then. Let’s talk customization. Is there an in-joke that you’d like to capture within this piece? Maybe you need your coon to be clutching a different snack? We are happy to make you something specific and deeply personal as we know these extra touches make for the most beloved trophies. Think of this design as a template for your perfect taxidermy piece and get in touch today so we can draw up your unique item.

  • All Aboard the Ark

    Don’t choose between your favorite critters when selecting your next iconic piece of taxidermy, as this dream design Noah's Ark Taxidermy features them all!

    Not all home additions are essential, we know that and while we pride ourselves on creating rustic furniture that will last a lifetime and help you to create beautiful memories in your rustic properties, we love a bit of fun too! Don’t believe us? Think we are all business and no party? Then take a look at this amazing centerpiece that takes furry friends and immortalizes them as worthy focal points forever. Or should that be FUR-ever? 

    We all know the biblical story of Noah saving two to seven of every animal on his ark and now, you can display a little homage to that beloved tale, thanks to our Canoeing Quartet trophy design. You might not be able to get two of everything God created in this quaint canoe, but we’ve managed to include a skunk, red fox, badger and a beaver all together and what an eye-catching motley crew they are! As cheeky as they are cute, this gaggle of furry friends look right at home in their bark canoe and we know they will look perfect in your home too. Why? Because they are the perfect rustic accessory and the workmanship of the taxidermy itself is second to none. 

    Mother Nature blesses us with stunning creatures to display in our properties and as such, we think they need to be treated with the utmost care and respect. You don’t want to be left with a threadbare trophy with wonky eyes, after all. You want a faithful representation of the majesty of the animal as they were when alive and scampering through beautiful woodlands and that’s what we bring to you with each of our stuffed taxidermy designs, whether whimsical or more natural.

    We think of taxidermy as similar to furniture creation in that it is a specialist skill requiring dedicated craftsmanship and artistry to perfect. With this in mind, we only work with the best materials and the most laudable tanners in the country, to guarantee you a taxidermy trophy that will last for years to come and bring joy to all that gaze upon it. Given that sports enthusiasts are some of the keenest collectors of taxidermy displays, we have to be aware of our audience and you are a discerning bunch. Rightly so too!

    Thinking about how particular you all are, we know that you might love the concept here but be looking for a different array of critters to be featured. Perhaps you are an ardent collector of squirrel trophies and you’d like to continue that theme, but within a Noah’s Ark setting? We can and will be delighted to accommodate you. You can have your choice of animals, displayed as you wish, so don’t shy away from asking! Our team of creatives will be happy to bring your vision to life if you get in touch to discuss your preferences.

    Shipped for free and within six working days, when in stock, you won’t have to wait long to welcome the newest additions to your family. 

  • Takin' out the Trash

    When you think of racoons, what comes to mind? Annoying little pests that enjoy nothing more than sneaking into tiny gaps, hiding in your lofts and digging through your trash? How many of us have come outside only to find the entire contents of our garbage bins strewn all over our property? Well we’re getting the last laugh because now, you can invite a racoon into your home and display him, clutching a beer can, as a warning to all the others!

    Anyone that hasn’t experienced the destructive nature of racoons might try to make light of what a nuisance they are. Unhygienic, selfish, noisy and annoying, they really are one of nature’s biggest pests but hell, if they aren’t super cute too! What a weird way to design a creature, but who are we to judge? 

    With their soft fur sweet stripes and cheeky little faces, nature’s burglars make for beautiful trophies in any home, but particularly those within a rustic setting and with a natural theme running through them.  Let’s picture a stunning woodland cabin for a minute and you’ll see what we mean.

    Let’s imagine that cabin being a fairly open plan affair, with a sociable kitchen and den and bedrooms off to the side. Log walls keep the atmosphere warm and cozy and you’ve chosen some gorgeous handcrafted furniture as well. Hopefully from us! Now look over at the rustic side table and what can you picture? That’s right: a naughty little racoon clutching his treasure that is a used beer can. What a bit of fun and a hilarious conversation starter! We won’t tell anyone that you didn’t bag the Beer Can Racoon either, so if you want to claim that, you go right ahead!

    Considering buying a racoon trophy as a gift? Why not get personal and ask us to use a favorite brewery can? After all, if your gift receiver is a Coors man, you don’t want to give him a Bud Light! We don’t think you could go wrong buying this for father’s day, Christmas or a birthday for the hunter in your life, and they don't even need a cabin to make good use of it either. If they have a man cave or games room that needs a little decorating, one of these loveable masked rogues will make a brilliant centerpiece.

    Our reputation speaks for itself when it comes to furniture and we wouldn’t jeopardize that by working with anything less than the finest tanners in the United States. By connecting with seasoned taxidermy artists, we are able to bring not only our quirky ideas to life, but these little furry friends as well. Blink and you’ll think they are still going to scurry away, that’s how incredible they are. But don’t just take our word for it. 

    Order your new decorative racoon taxidermy trophy today and enjoy free shipping, as well as a family heirloom that generations to come will love and cherish.

  • The Hunted Becomes the Hunter

    Calling all game room owners! If you’re a self-confessed outdoor pursuits fanatic, you’ll appreciate this very special and unusual Hunter Squirrel trophy mount that brings a little whimsy and humor to the notion of displaying your kills. 

    As we all know, safety comes first when stalking through the undergrowth and while camo might be your best bet for staying hidden from prey, those pesky orange vests serve an important purpose when it comes to making sure you don’t take a pellet yourself. You know who know s and pokes fun at this? Mr squirrel over here!

    Don’t feel too sorry for this scurrying little critter, as he’s spent a lifetime hunting for nuts but little did he know that a shotgun and hi-viz vest was all he really needed. Well now, he has both! From racing up and down tree trunks to sitting proudly on a shelf in your home, things have come full circle for this chirpy little predator. 

    Thanks to Mother Nature seeing fit to make no two animals the same, the image we are displaying is representative of our overall design and the quality standards that we aspire to with each and every creation. Though the overall dimensions might be a little different, with shorter or longer tails and maybe even significantly bigger squirrels themselves, the finished theme will be the same: the hunted becoming the hunters. 

    The fur that looks so soft you just can’t resist stroking it? We always look for that during our quality control process. A big bushy tail that defines the breed? Always sought after and moreover, we love to create little trophies that look so unadulterated that you might think they are still alive. Yes, we know this one is a little different, thanks to the little shotgun and vest, but other than those, we think our glossy-eyed squirrel mounts are exceptionally natural and beautiful.

    Few things are worse than badly executed taxidermy and we avoid the pitfalls of sloppy work by only collaborating with exemplary professionals. We use the best materials, the most experienced and passionate professionals and bring to life some of the most fun and unique ideas, all to guarantee you an incredible new decorative focal point for your home. 

    We don’t want to give you any ideas, but can’t you picture this little chap sat on your mantle at Christmas, wearing a homemade Santa hat? Or maybe posing alongside another piece, as if it is HIS trophy? Just be careful, as one trophy is never enough. Being as cute as these are, you’ll soon find that you have a few dotted around your home, getting up to mischief wherever they are!
