10 Rustic Furniture Essentials
What is the “Rustic” look? How can I put together a rustic room...or house? Rustic style can range from farmhouse to Tuscany and covers a broad number of styles, but there are some basic factors that really define the Rustic look. All in all, it embraces a natural feel.
Rustic style can be described using 4 words: natural, aged, rough, and casual. As you can imagine there are numerous ways to incorporate these into different styles like cottage or Tuscany, but usually the furniture piece will incorporate raw materials to give it an earthy, unfinished feel. In order to achieve that, many furniture pieces are handmade giving each piece its own personality. Textures are few and far between, ranging from rough cut wood to smooth stones but colors tend to stay within a narrow palette of greens, browns, and greys. Most of all, the Rustic style is warm and inviting. Below are our top 10 Rustic furniture picks which add that Rustic essence to any room.
1. Modern Farmhouse Storage Cabinet
This storage cabinet piece combines industrial iron pieces, with the rustic wood finish, along with the modern clean white cabinet. This would definitely fit into more of the Modern Rustic category but can be paired with industrial, rustic, or modern furnishings. There are also slight variants of this cabinet that are more Rustic or more Industrial without a splash of modern styling.
