  • Tips and Tricks for Mixing Modern and Rustic Furniture

    Can You Mix Rustic and Modern Styles in the Same Home?

    One of the advantages of owning rustic wood furniture is that it can complement just about any other design style, including something as seemingly different as modern. The key is to choose elements that play off each other, so they create a unique blend of textures, colors, and styles that look great.

    If you can’t make up your mind whether you want a modern design in your home or something more rustic and natural, don’t worry. You can have them both! Here are our tips and tricks for mixing these two design styles flawlessly in the rooms of your home.

    Choose Items That Are Similar, But Different

    This might seem like an impossible task, but it really isn’t. By “similar,” we mean two different items that each have something common between them. This can be a similar color, size, or texture, for example.

    Having a few “similar but different” pieces will allow you to display them as a collection, which will be more effective and pleasing to the eye than displaying them each on their own.

    Follow the 80/20 Rule

    When you’re combining design styles, you should choose one as the primary design and the other as the secondary design. Your main style should make up 80% of your décor, with the secondary design elements accounting for the remaining percentage.

    One way to accomplish this is to choose the room’s largest furniture pieces in your primary design style, and a few of the room’s accents and smaller pieces in the secondary style.

    With Multiple Design Styles at Play, Keep Things Neutral

    Neutral wall and furniture colors are recommended when combining styles in a room. This will give the room a canvas on which the different styles will stand out.

    Keep Things Balanced

    Balance is especially important when you’re mixing furniture and décor styles. For instance, the visual landscape of the room should be balanced, so nothing is too high or too low when compared with the rest of the room.

    You also need to blend the styles together instead of having one style on one side of the room, and the other style on the opposite side.

    Place the Furniture in the Space First

    Your furniture will very likely be the largest pieces in the room, so they should be placed first. The reason is because this will be your starting point for keeping things balanced in the space. As you continue to decorate the room, it will be easier to maintain a sense of symmetry as you fill the details with accents and functional elements like lighting.

    Create a Focal Point

    If you have one item that doesn’t have anything in common with anything else in the room, then you can make that item the room’s focal point. The item will stand apart from the rest of the competing décor, and serve as a piece of interest.

  • 7 Ways to Use Natural Wood in Your Home

    Using Natural Wood to Bring to Life a Rustic Design Style

    Natural, rustic wood is timeless in its beauty and appeal. So, it’s no wonder why so many homeowners make this material a true focal point in their homes. And, there are so many ways it can be used, it’s limited only by one’s imagination.

    If you want the warmth and charm that’s only available from authentic wood furniture or rustic wood accents, then here are seven ways you can use natural wood in your home décor style.

    1. A Barn Door Sliding Door
      Why settle for a conventional door between rooms when you can have a hand-crafted barn door sliding door? Featuring hand-distressed and weathered alder, this door looks as if it came right from a barn. The included black iron hardware and special staining make each one a unique work of art, and they can be customized to any size opening.

      Replacing your old entry door with an elaborate wooden door makes for an inviting entry into any home. Elegantly carved, this type of door shares your sense of taste and style with the world, and every passerby will surely be curious about the rest of the home inside.
      A home’s entry serves as its initial impression in many cases. With a wooden door, your home will always make a powerful first impression, no matter who your guests are or how many times you have them over.
    3. Fireplace Mantel
      If you have a fireplace in your family room, then adding a wood mantel will make it the focal point is deserves to be. A wood mantel brings a taste of the outdoors inside and lends a warm, rustic touch to your family room.
      You can choose from genuine twisty juniper or beautiful pine hand-carved with your choice of wildlife. Either pick makes for a majestic mantel above your fireplace.
    4. Wood Table Lamps
      Even if you live in an apartment in the city, you can still bring the beauty of natural wood home. One way to do this is with a table lamp made from genuine mesquite and copper. The natural grains and striations are visible in the mesquite, and the handsome copper shade is available in five distinct nature designs.
    5. Wood Bathroom Accents
      The bathroom is a great place to fit some wood accents into your home’s décor. From wooden towel hangers to wood toilet paper holders to medicine cabinets and vanities, there are dozens of ways you can bring the warm glow of natural wood into your bathroom. Whether you want a simple wood accent or a complete log cabin-inspired bath, you can go as big or small as you like, making this a great way to add some rustic touches on a budget.
    6. Wooden Pet Beds
      Your pet deserves to be pampered, and what better way to do it than by providing her with a beautiful and durable hand-made pet bed that’s been crafted from authentic northern white cedar? The bed is available in different sizes to accommodate a dog or cat, and it’s free of any harsh or toxic chemicals.
    7. Create a Work of Art
      Reclaimed wood makes for a cheap and easy way to add a touch of wood to the home. And, it can be used to create a wonderful work of original art. For instance, you can use it as a canvas for a painting. Or, you can create custom wood picture frames. You can even use it to create a one-of-a-kind clock or a rustic bench for your entry. If you find a truly unique piece, there’s no reason why you can’t hang it up on its own.

  • Why the Farmhouse Look Will (Probably) Never Go Out of Style

    While Other Design Trends Come and Go, Farmhouse Style Is Here to Stay

    Farmhouse design and décor was once not just a choice but also a true home décor necessity, because wood and natural materials were all people had to build and decorate their homes with.

    These days, however, homeowners are going out of their way to incorporate the farmhouse aesthetic into their homes. In fact, the farmhouse look will never go out of style because it offers several things homeowners want in their homes.


    The farmhouse style is one that’s ultimately based in simplicity. Colors used in this type of design tend to be those found in nature, such as natural wood hues, deep reds and greens, brown, and whitewashed accents. There are no flashy elements, leaving the look simple, clean, and comfortable.


    These days, many people are more conscious of how their homeowner decisions impact the planet, and eco-friendliness is something that many consider when decorating their homes.

    The farmhouse look plays into this ethos beautifully because so much of this style features reclaimed wood from old barns and other old-fashioned structures. Meanwhile, decorative accents can be made by gathering materials during a nature walk, making it not only affordable but practical as well.

    Low Maintenance

    Wood furniture, wrought-iron fixtures, and natural accents don’t require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking great. Farmhouse materials are rugged and durable, so fewer repairs will be required. In fact, if your wood table gets a ding, it often only adds to the beauty of it.


    No other design style lends a feeling of warmth to a home like the farmhouse style. The rich tones and natural wood feel familiar, warm, and wonderfully cozy, especially on a cold winter’s night by the light of the fireplace.


    The farmhouse look is extremely practical because there’s nothing precious about it. The homeowner can mix and match a variety of earthy elements, like wood, metal, stone, and wool, to create a unique and inspired look all their own. More than any other design style, farmhouse embraces an “anything goes” attitude.

    Feels Like Home

    After a long day at work, arriving home is like taking a breath of fresh air when that home has farmhouse aesthetics incorporated into the design. The cozy style puts one instantly at ease, and the stress of the day quickly starts to wane. A rustic home is like an escape from the noise and commotion of the modern world, and that’s something everyone can use.

  • Use a Rustic Piece of Furniture as the Focal Point in Your Modern Space

    Does Your Eye Land on a Rustic Piece of Furniture in Your Main Living Area?

    Many designers might tell you that you can’t blend rustic furniture with other design styles, but that’s just not true at all. A single piece of rustic wood furniture will not only look great in a modern space, but it can also serve as its focal point, leading your guests’ eye to a stunning and functional design object.

    Here are just a few of the reasons why natural wood furniture works perfectly in a room with otherwise modern décor.

    When It Comes to Character, Wood Is Charming

    When a room is too heavily modern, it can sometimes lose its sense of charm and warmth. By adding a piece of rustic wood furniture, you are adding coziness and warmth back into the room in a way that seems effortless.

    An excellent way to achieve this is to have a large, wooden coffee table in the middle of your family room. A durable coffee table provides the perfect place to gather around, to play games on, or to host a party.

    Rustic Wood Has Timeless Appeal

    Wood furniture has a timeless appeal to it, so much so that just looking at it brings to mind thoughts of nature, peace, and tranquility. It also reflects your love of nature as it’s embodied in a single, unique piece.

    While other styles come in and out of vogue, rustic farmhouse décor never goes out of style, so you will always have your piece of solid wood furniture to build your room upon as time passes and trends change.

    It’s All About Balance

    Having one piece of wood furniture in a room will help balance out the rest of its design. The larger the piece, the better you’ll be able to add a sense of balance to the room. The eye will be automatically drawn to the rustic piece because it will stand out from your otherwise modern décor, but not overwhelm it. In many ways, they’ll work together to create a single, functional and beautiful space.

    Wood Furniture Connects Your Home to Nature

    Nature is an important part of our lives. It grounds us and helps us center ourselves. When you add a piece of rustic wood furniture to your home, you’re connecting your home to nature.

    Simply being around the furniture can provide you with a much-needed respite from the hustle and bustle, because you’re in the midst of a real piece of nature.

    Find the Perfect Rustic Wood Furniture for Your Home at Log Furniture Place

    You can find the perfect piece of solid wood furniture to serve as your room’s focal point at Log Furniture Place. We specialize in creating hand-crafted wood furniture and accents using locally sourced materials, like barnwood from 100-year-old barns.

    At Log Furniture Place, we are committed to providing our customers with the finest shopping experience, warranty, and prices around. Contact us today if you have any questions regarding our process and/or to learn more about our custom furniture options.

  • Try These Farmhouse Flourishes!

    These Rustic Staples Will Give You That Perfect Farmhouse Look

    A lot of homeowners believe that in order to get a specific look, they must make that design style first and foremost throughout the home. But, this isn’t really the case. For example, for anyone who may be looking to bring the look of farmhouse design into their homes, buying an entirely new set of furniture isn’t necessarily required, though it certainly does the trick.

    You can still get the warmth and character of farmhouse design simply by featuring a few rustic staples throughout your home. Here are some ideas to help you give your home a touch of rustic charm without replacing everything you own.

    Exterior Farmhouse Accents

    The entry of your home says a lot about who you are. If you love the farmhouse look, then including some rustic flourishes on the outside of your home will make your home look homier, warmer, and more inviting.

    Some of the accents you can incorporate include rustic welcome signs, farmhouse-style house numbers, a weathervane, or an old-fashioned mailbox post. Of course, hanging a traditional dinner bell on your porch is practically a requirement!

    Interior Farmhouse Accents

    There’s an endless number of ways you can add the beauty of farmhouse design in your home without breaking the bank. One way is to replace your modern light switch plates with switch plates made from wrought iron or copper. Opting for plates with animal features on them will show your love for nature in every room.

    Hanging a mirror with a log frame in your entry sets the tone for the rest of the home. Match that with a solid wood coat rack, and your entry will serve as the ideal introduction to your farmhouse home.

    As you progress through the home, incorporating rustic rugs and artwork will add a touch of comfort and warmth to each of the rooms, regardless of what your primary design style is. The natural colors and tones found in these items will keep the atmosphere in the room grounded and relaxed.

    You can even feature minor displays of farmhouse design style throughout the kitchen and bath. From paper towel holders and cutting boards to wooden magazine racks and candy and nut dishes, your choices are limitless. These simple and small touches will make a big impact.

    Other ways to bring the farmhouse look to your home include wrought iron curtain hardware and candle holders, whimsical taxidermy, bookends, and clocks. Replacing your old lamps with new lamps made from wood, copper, or other natural materials is another effective way to introduce farmhouse touches in your family room, even if you have otherwise modern décor.

  • 5 Common Cleaning Mistakes That Might Destroy Your Rustic Furniture

    Maintain the Look of Your Rustic Wood Furniture When Cleaning

    The beauty of rustic wood furniture is in its natural grains and color variances. As many people would agree, wood has textures and tones that look their best when they are left in their natural state. But, just like everything else in your home, you will need to clean your wood furniture from time to time. Unfortunately, how you’re cleaning it could be doing more damage than good.

    As durable as rustic wood is, it can be easily damaged if you use the wrong products or the wrong techniques. Here are five common cleaning mistakes that will destroy your rustic wood furniture, and how to avoid them.

    1. Using Furniture Polish
      Furniture polish manufacturers market their products to consumers for their wood-protective qualities. But, a lot of commercial furniture polish on the market is laden with oil and silicone, and this oil can wind up making your furniture more susceptible to fingerprints and smears. This results in you having to wipe the furniture down again and again; over time, the oil and rubbing can start to impact the surface of the wood.
      You can avoid this problem by wiping your rustic wood furniture with a clean, barely damp cloth. That’s all you need to do to clean the surface of your wood furniture.
    2. Using Too Much Water on Your Wood Furniture
      In many ways, water is the natural enemy of wood. Use too much water too often, and the wood will start to absorb it. In time, this will result in parts of the furniture becoming swollen and waterlogged. Once the wood swells, there really is no way to restore it without some serious work involved.
      The rule of thumb with water is to use it as sparingly as possible on your wood. Barely damp is the way to go. Water should never be left to stand on your wood furniture.
    3. Using Feather Dusters
      The most common way to clean wood furniture on a regular basis is to simply dust it. But, you want to avoid using a real feather duster because these types of dusters have sharp quills that can sometimes leave scratches in the surface of the wood. Instead, you should dust the wood using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth.
    4. Scraping Away Melted Wax With Metal
      Candles can look especially nice when they’re set on a rustic wood table, but if the melted wax runs down onto the table, it can be difficult to remove without marking the wood in the process. You will want to avoid using anything metal, like a knife, to remove the cooled wax.
      The best way to clean wax from your wood table is to chip the hardened wax away using an old credit card. If some residue remains, then place a soft, clean cloth over the residue and run a slightly warm iron over it. The wax should melt and stick to the cloth, leaving the surface of the wood clean and undamaged.
    5. Applying Too Much Wax
      Wax is ideal for preserving your wood furniture and giving it a more durable surface. But, too much of a good thing isn’t always better. Apply too much wax, and the wood will start looking cloudy and less attractive.
      Whether you use paste wax or liquid, the general rule is to apply the wax in light coats, rubbing it into the grains of the wood. The wax should be allowed to dry, followed by a light buffing to bring out the shine.
      If you are using liquid wax, then you may need to apply coats more frequently as it provides a thinner coating than paste wax, which can last up to two years before it needs to be re-applied.

  • Barnwood Furniture: Bring a Piece of American History Into Your Home!

    America’s First Kind of Furniture Design: The Barnwood Style

    Barnwood furniture holds a special place in American furniture design because it was one of the first furniture designs used in the United States. It is also a design that has never gone out of style and most likely never will.

    Barnwood furniture is simple, clean, and practical, and it complements any room in which it is used. It’s also eco-friendly and extremely durable. And, today the style is so highly desired that it is easier than ever to bring a piece of American history into your home. Here are some of the different ways you can feature rustic barnwood furniture in your home.

    Barnwood Bedroom Furniture

    Barnwood bedroom furniture makes a bedroom look and feel just like a log cabin. It lends a touch of warmth and coziness that you just can’t get from modern or contemporary furniture designs. It’s also built much stronger than most furniture styles that use modern materials.

    Barnwood bed frames are solid and heavy, and nightstands made from the wood are durable enough to last a lifetime of use.

    Barnwood Furniture for the Family Room

    Nothing gives your family room a more comfortable touch than barnwood furniture. The rich tones of the naturally weathered wood complement any style of décor, and there are several ways to feature it in your family room.

    You can have a large, barnwood coffee table, a sofa table, end tables, or even a reclaimed barnwood armoire or entertainment center for your flat-screen television.

    Rustic Barnwood Kitchen and Dining Room

    The look and feel of your rustic kitchen and dining room starts with the dining room table. A barnwood dining room table is large, heavy, and solidly built. It’s also a visually stunning piece of furniture that provides an extra-sensory experience while dining.

    Adding picture frames made from reclaimed barnwood or mirrors will add to the beauty of the room, and a buffet and hutch provides extra storage while bringing the entire room together.

    Meanwhile, in the kitchen, you can opt for a barnwood sideboard with wine cabinet, a jelly cabinet, or a sliding barn door to separate the rooms.

    Additional Ways to Bring Barnwood Into the Home

    You can find reclaimed barnwood furniture for just about every room in the home. Other ways you can add barnwood to your home include:

    Shop for Reclaimed Barnwood Furniture at Log Furniture Place

  • Our 5 Secrets to Picking the Perfect Wood for Your Furniture

    The Best Way to Find the Right Kind of Wood for Your Wood Furniture

    A piece of rustic wood furniture is a gorgeous addition to any home. Whether it’s a table, a TV stand, a couch, a bookcase, or a bed frame, wood is an excellent choice due to its beauty and durability. After all, a well-built piece of quality wood furniture can and should last a lifetime.

    But, not all wood furniture is made the same. Some manufacturers use inferior materials or techniques, yet they charge the same prices as manufacturers of authentic wood furniture. So, it is important to know what you’re looking at when you’re shopping for wood furniture. With that in mind, here are our five secrets to help you choose the perfect wood for your furniture.

    1. Choose Solid Wood
      Wood furniture that is made entirely from solid wood is much better than furniture that isn’t. Manufacturers that glue single wood boards or use wood panels can still call their furniture wood, but it isn’t constructed from solid wood.
      Therefore, it’s an inferior product and one that won’t stand the test of time. When buying with quality and longevity in mind, make sure the entire piece of furniture is solid wood, and not just certain parts of it.
    2. Choose Hardwood Over Softwood
      Solid wood furniture is either made from hardwood, like oak, walnut, cherry, maple, and ash; or softwood, like poplar, pine, and fir. Hardwood is denser and harder, so it naturally stands up to use better than softwood. Hardwood is much more resistant to scratches and dings, but it is more expensive.
      Therefore, if you want an heirloom piece that will last for decades, then hardwood furniture should be your choice.
    3. Check the Joints of the Furniture
      Wood furniture can be assembled in a variety of different ways, but some methods are more stable and longer-lasting than others. For instance, joints that are made with mortise-and-tenon or dowel techniques offer the best stability, whereas butted and mitered joints tend to be weaker. In most cases, the latter just can’t stand up to heavy use unless the joints are reinforced.
    4. Watch for Knots and Cracks
      If a piece of furniture is built with wood that has knots or cracks, then you should find one with wood that doesn’t have them. Knotted or cracked wood is more susceptible to developing additional cracks over time, so it's best to avoid these kinds of blemishes (unless this is the 'character' you desire, and you're willing to take a risk on the furniture's longevity.)
    5. Lift the Furniture at One Corner
      Solid wood furniture is heavy, but that doesn’t mean that it always sits flush to the ground. Lift one corner of the furniture to make sure it doesn’t twist and be sure to listen for any squeaks.
      Set the piece of furniture back down and check to make sure all four legs are in contact with the floor. Press down on the different corners to see if the piece rocks or wobbles. If the piece is built right, you should not be able to notice any movement or noise on a flat floor.
