Rustic Decor

  • Why You Can’t Go Wrong with Rustic Furniture

    Rustic Wood Furniture Simply Never Goes Out of Style

    Interior design trends may come and go, but one type of décor that never seems to go out of style is rustic farmhouse. Even if you don’t want to design your entire home in this style, rustic furniture complements just about every other style of design. So, regardless of how your home is decorated, a piece of rustic wooden furniture will add a natural element and a touch of warmth and comfort that many other styles might lack.

    If you’re thinking of redesigning your home’s interior, then here are five reasons why you can never go wrong when choosing the rustic look for any of the rooms in your home.

    Rustic Furniture Keeps You Grounded

    Rustic furniture is made from genuine wood, so it has a natural ability to keep you grounded, in both your body and your soul. The material comes directly from the earth, so there’s a life to it that you just can’t get from man-made materials. Every piece is unique, and simply running your hand over the surface of the wood will bring a sense of peace and serenity.

    Rustic Furniture Is an Investment That Improves With Age

    Furniture that’s crafted from man-made materials tends to weaken and break very quickly because it is often not designed to last. But when you purchase wood furniture, you can expect it to last for decades, making it an excellent investment. Wood is extremely durable and capable of withstanding nearly everything you can throw at it. It’s also the only material that improves the older it gets.  

    Rustic Design Is Warm and Approachable

    Based on the beauty of nature, rustic design features plenty of warm colors and textures. This is most evident in its furniture, which showcases the incredible range of brown, red, and yellow hues found inside of the different species of trees.

    Rustic design is also simple to achieve, which makes it very approachable for someone who never went to interior design school. It’s not difficult to make your home cozy and inviting when you incorporate farmhouse designs and color palettes.

    Rustic Furniture Is Ideal for Families

    Kids can be very hard on furniture – anyone who has a family knows this to be the case. But that is something you won’t have to worry about when you have wooden furniture because there are already nicks, dents, and scratches present in the wood. This makes the furniture very family friendly. In fact, any damage your child does to the furniture will usually only add to its natural appearance, if it can’t be easily removed.

    Rustic Blends Well With Other Styles

    Even if you don’t want farmhouse design to rule your home, you can still use it with other styles to incorporate more warmth into the home. For instance, rustic style blends very will with urban designs. This combination is known as “modern farmhouse.”

  • Achieving ‘Hygge’ in Your Rustic Home

    Finding Comfort and Enjoyment Through ‘Hygge’

    Denmark
    is consistently named one of the happiest countries on the planet, and it’s not
    an accident, either. The Danish people follow a concept called “hygge” (hoo-gah)
    that enables one to find comfort and enjoyment in the everyday, soothing things
    we find in life. These are almost always the inexpensive things and moments
    that we cherish most.

    Winter
    is a particularly popular time to practice hygge because so much of it revolves
    around being warm, cozy, and comfortable. Sitting down in front of the fire
    with a hot cup of cocoa while wearing your favorite sweater and slippers is the
    perfect example. The feeling you get in this kind of moment is essentially what
    hygge is all about.

    But,
    did you know that you can achieve throughout your entire home? Here are some
    tips to achieve hygge in your rustic home this winter.

    Turn
    the Bright Lights Off

    Bright
    lights can be jarring to the eyes, so they naturally go against the feeling you
    are trying to achieve. Keep your bright overhead lights off unless you’re
    having dinner, and instead use warmer lights like table
    lamps
    , candles,
    and of course, the fireplace.

    DeClutter

    It will be virtually impossible to achieve hygge in a room that is
    perpetually messy and disorganized. So, be sure and tidy your home up and put
    everything in its proper place. Further, you can take the opportunity to remove
    any items that do not bring you intense feelings of joy.

    Surround
    Yourself With Things You Love

    In hygge, you want to be surrounded by the things you love the most, but
    the concept of hygge doesn’t necessarily fit squarely with consumerism. This
    means that everything you surround yourself with needs to be meaningful to you
    and/or to tell a story.

    Things like family heirlooms, gifts from loved ones, memorable vacation
    souvenirs, and other such personal items will help you get the feeling you’re
    going for. Remember, just because you own something doesn’t mean you love it –
    so take inventory of your possessions and keep only what serves you around.

    Feature
    Soft Textures

    With
    hygge, you need to be cozy and comfortable in every room of this house, which
    means that soft textures work always best. Have plenty of pillows, blankets,
    throws, rugs,
    and other soft textured items at the ready, whether you’re in the living room
    or the bedroom.

    Bring
    the Outdoors Inside

    A hygge home features plenty of natural materials, like wood, leather,
    and stone. In a rustic home, you will already be most of the way there – all
    you’ll have to do is to find additional ways to bring nature inside.

    For instance, gather fallen pine tree limbs and make a wreath, collect
    fallen leaves and sticks and some stones to make a centerpiece. Find a handsome
    branch and prop it up in an empty corner – you’re only limited by your
    imagination.

    Enjoy
    Meals Together With Loved Ones

    Among
    the Danish, gathering family and friends around a large
    wooden table
    , sitting on wood
    chairs
    , and enjoying a big meal together is a hallmark of hygge. The
    wood table and chairs bring the natural element to the mix, while the meal and
    loved ones add the sense of warmth and comfort that is key to the concept.
    Dinner is a great time to put away the electronic devices, so you can focus on
    the act of eating together.

    Log Furniture Place Can Help You Bring Hygge to Your Home

    Log Furniture Place is a natural fit for those looking to achieve hygge in their households. All our products are made using locally sourced natural materials, which complement hygge philosophy perfectly.

    you want more hygge in your rustic home, then shop our inventory online and we

    work tirelessly to ensure your complete satisfaction, and we back up that

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Simplicity

    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.

    Eco-Friendliness

    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.

    Warmth

    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.

    Practicality

    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.

    Log Furniture Place Is Where to Shop for Rustic Wood Furniture

    Log Furniture Place is the best place to shop if you want to give your home a farmhouse look. Everything we make is hand-crafted and features locally sourced materials. We also back our products with a solid warranty, so you can buy with confidence.

  • 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 Easy DIY Projects to Upgrade Your Cabin

    Do-It-Yourself Projects to Make Your Cabin Even Better

    Living in a log cabin is one thing, but when you’re able to create a genuine rustic feel to your home, that’s when you take your cabin to the next level. More than any other type of home, a log cabin is connected to nature. So, it makes sense that you want to keep the natural look and feel of your cabin’s structure everywhere on your property, both inside and out.

    If you’re looking for a few DIY projects that can add a touch of rustic charm to your cabin, then here are five projects to get you started.

    Build a Fire Pit

    A fire pit is the perfect accessory to any log cabin. It’s ideal for sharing stories with the family, cooking hot dogs and s’mores, and for spending chilly autumn evenings outside. But, the best part about a fire pit is that it is easy to build and it serves as the ultimate disposal solution for fallen twigs and branches on your property.

    Build a Firewood Seasoning Shed

    In addition to fallen limbs and branches, you’ll also need logs for your fire pit. So, you can set aside a piece of your property specifically for splitting wood. Next to your splitting station, you can build a simple seasoning shed to keep your wood dry and protected all winter long.

    This will make it easier and cleaner for you to fetch wood for your fire pit or indoor fireplace. You can make the shed as simple or complex as you like, but here’s how to build a basic firewood seasoning shed.

    Strip the Finish From the Logs and Re-Finish Them

    If your log cabin’s exterior is starting to lose its luster, then it might be time for a complete restoration. The first thing you’ll need to do it strip the old finish from the logs. The best way to accomplish this is to use a vacuum media abrasive blaster and ground-up corn cobs. This is an effective and affordable abrasive media that won’t damage the surface of the logs. Another option is to use CO2 blasting.

    Even though these processes don’t damage the wood, they can cause the grain to become raised slightly. This will require you to sand and smooth the wood before applying the new coat of sealant. Look carefully for any signs of damage or wood rot and repair them as necessary.

    Lastly, apply your choice of wood sealer according to the manufacturer’s instructions to complete the exterior’s restoration.

    Go Solar

    A log home is one that is built with nature in mind, so it makes sense for it to be even more “green.” Adding solar to your log cabin will make it energy independent and ensure that you always have the power you need regardless of the weather (if your panels are positioned where they can receive full sunlight throughout the day).

    You can even install a solar thermal heater to heat your water instead of relying on gas or electric. Your cabin will be much more energy efficient, and you’ll enjoy the savings even more.

    Install Hardwood Flooring

    If you purchased an older log cabin and it came with cheap laminate, tile, or carpet flooring, then consider installing hardwood flooring instead. This will give the home a beautiful and rustic floor that looks like it belongs. As a side benefit, it will also increase the resale value of your home.

    When you’re looking to upgrade your log cabin, remember that the more rustic it looks, the better. At the Log Furniture Place, we hand-craft our furniture from the finest rustic materials, so you can sure everything me make will fit beautifully within your cabin’s design.

  • Understanding Live Edge Furniture, Why it’s Awesome and So Darn Trendy

    Using Salvaged, Reclaimed, or Rough-Cut Wood Furniture in Your Home

    You see it in all the fancy furniture showrooms these days – so much so, that it seems to have taken the decorating world by storm. That gorgeous slab of warm wood on a base, polished to a lustrous sheen, asking for spare decoration or a series of wonderful dishes to be laid out upon it. But the twist is: one or more of its edges has been left rough or completely unfinished, looking very much like the live tree it came from some time ago.

    Of course, bringing elements of the natural world into the interior of the home (or conference room at your local startup) is nothing new. Rustic, or lodge-style interior decorating often uses rough-hewn timber-framed furniture, raw unfinished stone, and log furniture to bring a bit of the outside indoors. The style gives the homeowner, their family, and guests a real opportunity to settle into the comfort of a bygone era.

    Live edge furniture does this by incorporating something unfinished into an otherwise-finished piece of furniture. And while the wood used to create live edge furniture may not have ever been selected for a conventional application in cabinetry or as a part of a piece of furniture, it is this less than perfect nature that makes it all the more beautiful.

    The “History” of Live Edge Furniture

    Live edge furniture has likely been a part of interior decorating for some of us for a very long time. Making fine, fully finished pieces of furniture was typically beyond the skills of most people making their own furniture for much of the history of our species having interiors to decorate.

    Japanese furniture making tradition has also incorporated unfinished or live-edge pieces throughout its history. In fact, it was a Japanese woodworker, George Nakashima, who introduced the use of live edge wood to American furniture making in the nineteen forties with his award-winning furniture designs for a couple of American furniture companies. In these collaborations, he utilized wood specifically selected for the beauty of its natural imperfections, and left it in an unfinished state to highlight these qualities.

    The Few Drawbacks of the Live Edge

    Live edge furniture is not for every person and not for every home. Unfinished edges can make a piece of furniture less usable, and even dangerous in some contexts. For instance, the splinters available from a piece of unfinished, live edge wood can be a hazard for children. Additionally, live edge furniture can collect dust that can be difficult to remove.

    The Natural Rustic Beauty of Live Edge Furniture

    Live edge furniture, whether it is crafted from slabbed trees, reclaimed wood from salvaged architecture, or from unfinished timber, has a natural rustic beauty that is sure to compliment any home or interior decorating style. Live edge furniture is especially appealing in rustic decorated interiors, adding an additional component of the natural world in all its raw splendor to the other elements of the lodge look.

    It’s surprising what leaving a single edge of a tabletop can do to bring an entire room to life, in addition to—or in spite of—the other decoration throughoutin the room. In the end, a live edge coffee table, dining room table, bar top, or other pieces of furniture can be a great additions to your home, whether or not you’re decorating in the rustic style.

  • Build the Log Cabin Dream Home You’ve Always Wanted

    Ready to Finally Build That Log Cabin Home of Your Dreams?

    There’s something special about a log cabin. One look at the structure, and all you can think about is how comfortable and cozy it must be in there, especially in winter with the hearth lit and the snow falling outside.

    But for far too many people, their dreams of living in a log home are just that – dreams. If you are one of the brave folks, and you want to make your dream a reality, then we say good for you! Read on for a list of our tips when you’re ready to start building the log cabin dream home you’ve always wanted.

    Know Your Budget

    A log cabin’s cost varies based on its size and the quality of materials used. You also need a piece of property if you don’t already have one, and this can also add to the cost. So, before you start planning your log home, you need to know how much money you’re going to be working with.

    Review all your debts and income sources, and create a budget. Know the budget inside and out, and look for ways to free up more money. Pay off any debt you can and get rid of luxury items that cost you more than the value they’re providing you with.

    Custom Design or Stock Plan?

    When considering your home’s layout, you will have to make the decision between a custom design and a stock plan that may be available from your builder. As enticing as a custom build might be to you, there are several reasons why a stock plan may be a better option, especially for a first-time log cabin owner.

    For starters, a stock plan is going to save you a lot of money. Then there’s the fact that the builder has built their stock plans numerous times over, so any construction issues will have already been engineered out of the plan. Thus, your builder will be able to build your log cabin quicker, more efficiently, and for less money than a custom job.

    Go With an Open Floor Plan

    Choosing an open floor plan will not only make your home feel larger, but it will also save you money and eliminate wasted space. An open floor plan features no hallways, so construction and material costs will be lower, and your cabin will have the type of floor plan most buyers want, which will benefit you if you ever decide to sell.

    Keep the Cabin’s Width Below 30 Feet

    In a log cabin build, a 30-foot width is the highest you’ll want to go if you want to keep your costs down. The reason is because structures that are higher or wider than 30-feet require larger and longer support beams, and naturally, the longer the logs, the more expensive they’re going to cost.

    Ceiling Height Considerations

    If part of your log cabin dream image consists of cathedral ceilings, then keep the cathedral ceiling in the great room, but keep the ceilings in the rest of the home around the eight-foot mark. This will allow you to enjoy the grand feel of the open space in your great room, while keeping the rest of the home easy and more affordable to heat and cool.

    Build Your Dream Cabin in Stages

    The most important thing when it comes to building a dream log cabin is to accept that you don’t need to build the entire thing in one project. Instead, you can build your dream home in phases.

    Doing this will not only help you stretch out your building expenses, but it will also enable you to add to your home to suit your future needs. An example of phase-building includes building the base cabin in phase one, adding a wrap-around porch in phase two, a garage in phase three, and maybe an in-law’s suite in phase four.

    Outfit Your Log Cabin With Authentic Log Furniture

    With your log cabin built, your next step will be to outfit the interior with furniture that’s appropriate for your living space. From rustic wood bed frames to a charming wood kitchen to tables and chairs and more, there are dozens of different ways to bring the beauty of the outdoors into your dream cabin.

    At Log Furniture Place, we use locally sourced materials to handcraft all our products and we back everything with a solid warranty to ensure you are 100% satisfied when you receive your purchase. We work tirelessly for our customers and offer some of the most competitive prices around, which is why we're the top log furniture store online.

    Using Rustic Furniture to Create a New Look for Your Home

    The rustic look is simple: it’s rugged, natural, and also comfortable and timeless. If you are looking to transform your home in order to evoke a simple yet beautiful feeling from your home decor, the rustic decorating style may be ideal for you.

    Bringing rustic furniture and decorative elements into your living areas is a great way to give your home a more natural, organic feel. In this post, we will look at some of the ways you can transform your living spaces with rustic furniture and other elements of the rustic or lodge style.

    Choosing Rustic Furniture for Your Home

    The rustic style is first and foremost about the sophistication of a more rugged nature that is beautiful because of its incorporation of natural materials. Many different types of natural materials are used to create the rustic look, and to make rustic furniture. Rustic furniture, whether it’s new or well used, always feels comfortable and inviting.

    Rustic furniture relies on several basic materials that typically are left in close to their natural state. Wooden pieces of furniture, for example, are often made of peeled logs or rough-hewn boards, and are sometimes hand-carved, or lathed and worked with hand tools.

    Natural Materials, Rustic Furniture

    Rustic furniture can be stained, oiled, or painted, but the rustic style of decorating values warmer tones and more natural-looking or organic materials. Treatments that highlight or show off the natural grain and knots of the wood used to construct the furniture are usually easier to incorporate into rustic decor.

    The furniture used in rustic decor is also often chosen to help create a sense of log cabin, mountain lodge, or deep forest cottage atmosphere. When it is paired with other rustic architectural elements such as open beams, rustic wood flooring, or an unfinished stone fireplace, and rustic decorative elements like taxidermied trophies, woolen throws, and brass fixtures, it creates a sense of comfort – a sense of home.

    Bedroom, Kitchen, and Bath in the Rustic Style

    When redecorating your home in the rustic style, using rustic furniture to create that lodge feel, remember not to limit yourself to just the main living areas of the house. The bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom can all benefit from the addition of rustic elements, including rustic furniture.

    In the kitchen, decorate with antique milk glass or mason jars full of various natural foodstuffs, or put your antique cast iron on display. You don’t have to convert your kitchen to antique appliances, but if you are looking to replace your appliances, then be sure to look for new ones that feel like they’re vintage. Consider removing the doors from your cabinets, or replacing your cabinet and drawer hardware with something antique in appearance.

    In the bedroom, a timber or log furniture bed frame is a great way to bring in the rustic style. Set off your choice of bed with natural textile sheets and blankets, and a handmade quilt. Finish the room with an antique or reclaimed wood nightstand and an antique lamp. In the bath, brass fixtures and natural accents can go a long way toward carrying the rustic decorating theme into an often-used and often-neglected corner of your home.

    Easily Transform Your Home With Rustic Furniture

    Using rustic furniture and design elements in your home to create a feeling of coziness will make you, your family, and your guests feel a sense of warm welcoming in your home. This is thanks in large part to the naturally welcoming qualities of the organic materials used in the creation of rustic furniture.
