WHAT IS RUSTIC FURNITURE? A COMPLETE GUIDE TO RUSTIC & FARMHOUSE FURNITURE
Rustic furniture is characterized by designs that use and showcase wood that is natural, rough, and aged. Splints, cracks, and other deformations of wood are par for the course when it comes to rustic style furniture.
Rustic furniture is typically sourced in India and Vietnam, countries that have a long history of wood being used in the construction of houses and, thus, have no paucity when it comes to wood retrieved from old run-down or dilapidated houses or buildings undergoing redevelopment.
The key elements to the rustic or farmhouse-style furniture are:
EMPHASIS ON THE NATURAL
The defining characteristic of a rustic home is the use of natural materials. For furniture, this usually means a lot of wood. The emphasis of rustic furniture style is on the simple, natural, and earthy feel of wood. So instead of a sleek, glossy stain on a newly harvested wood, you will find raw/unfinished wood or rough sawn being used in the crafting of furniture items. These are extremely popular among various other designs as well. For instance, our wholesale coastal furniture collection, derives several designs from our rustic styles
Rustic furniture is handmade.
In keeping with the natural theme, rustic furniture is handmade. It’s generally simple in design and shape, letting the materials stand out instead. Rustic furniture is designed to feel warm, inviting, and classical. Heavy wood furniture, made from raw logs, wooden beams, and rough sawn lumber is common.
THE OPPOSITE OF MODERN
In the rustic style of furniture, you will be hard-pressed to find modern furnishings and materials, like metal, plastic, or synthetic fibers. While rustic decor by itself tends to be heavier, darker, and less sparse, however contemporary rustic furniture, a relatively new trend, combines the earthy elements of the rustic style with a clean-lined modern design for a fresh, light, and grounded aesthetic.
STYLING TIPS FOR USING RUSTIC FURNITURE
By adding the following signature elements of the rustic / farmhouse/barnyard style of furniture, you can up the jazz factor of your hospitality business or executive & luxury residences:
Add a bit of grit to it. Rustic furniture, and the upholstery on it, have a bit of a roughness to them. Much of it is made from raw woods so it feels a bit undone. You want to feel as though your materials have been roughened up a bit by the elements, so you’ll often find Barnwood, railway sleeper wood or driftwood
Keep it warm and inviting. With its warm color palette, the rustic design style creates an atmosphere that’s friendly, inviting, and the kind which spurs conversations. Oversized couches, distressed leather, jute, or other natural fiber furnishings, everything that is a bit raw adds the warm colors and textures that are central to the rustic decor and makes it feel particularly homey.
A natural color palette. Unsurprisingly, the rustic color palette swings towards neutral. Greens, browns, and grays are common. While there is room for bold, but try to stick to earthy tones as the rustic decor favors warmth over colors that have a cold or stark appeal about them.
