What Is Rustic Style Furniture?
The rustic hardwood furniture style dates back to the 19th century, when it emerged as a natural extension of the Arts and Crafts movement, as well as various folk traditions. Wooden rustic furniture is known for its incorporation of unprocessed twigs and logs in place of lumber. Rustic log furniture does not necessarily mean unpolished — in fact, many rustic pieces are carefully designed to promote harmony between natural elements and more ornate or polished components.
Conventionally, the term rustic furniture refers only to furniture created using this style. However, it is also used more broadly to encompass any type of design that eschews modern conventions in favor of a more homespun look and feel.

Rustic Wooden Furniture in the Home
Because of its striking appearance, rustic hardwood furniture tends to make a strong impression in a room. As a result, certain things must be taken into consideration to prevent it from clashing with other pieces. If you love the rustic look, maximize the impact of a few key pieces by surrounding them with organic forms — stick to warm and earthy colors, and avoid hard lines. Accessorize the room with reclaimed pieces and found objects. Using a bright area rug or throw pillow to add a splash of color is a great way to add extra visual interest.
Alternately, it is possible to mix select rustic furniture pieces with other styles. Key to this is ensuring that a sense of balance is sustained. Contrast rustic hardwood furniture with modern pieces by using the 80:20 rule — keep 80% of the room consistent while using the remainder to experiment.
Because rustic furniture contains lots of natural detail, it works best when placed against simpler styles. Ornate furniture in the Victorian tradition, for example, is likely to clash in a room full of rustic pieces. Everyone’s tastes are different — if a certain combination of pieces makes you happy, who cares if it doesn’t follow the rule book? Feel free to experiment and find a style that works for you.
Getting Started With Rustic Furniture
You’ll find plenty of options for adding rustic hardwood furniture to your home at AmishOutletStore.com. One of our representatives will be happy to put together a complete furniture set for your living room, dining room, bedroom or den. With our exclusive discounts on large orders, you’ll save even more off our already low prices.
If you’d prefer to shop one piece at a time, there are several ways to begin. First, consider your goals — do you want to eventually redo an entire room in the rustic style, or to add a single piece that will complement your existing furniture? Rustic tables work particularly well in large dining rooms, especially in homes with high ceilings and exposed beams. Rustic benches are popular in entranceways and mudrooms. Because of their solid hardwood construction, they also make a great addition to a garden or backyard, one that’s durable enough for year-round use in all weather conditions.
Other popular options include adding a rustic hope chest to a bedroom or den, or using a rustic curio cabinet as an attractive display case for knickknacks and other mementos.
Amish Craftsmanship, Rustic Style
With AmishOutletStore.com’s wooden rustic furniture, you get the best of both worlds — the classic look and feel of rustic furniture, with the quality craftsmanship of the Amish furniture-making tradition. All our pieces are designed and built by hand, using techniques that have been sustained by Amish craftsmen over the course of generations. You won’t find any particle board or composite materials in our furniture — only northern kiln-dried hardwoods such as quartersawn white oak and cherry.
With our furniture, you’re paying first and foremost for quality. Unlike mass-produced furniture, everything we sell is unique and can be customized to your specifications. Many of our pieces remain in the family for years, gaining more character as they age. In short, when you purchase rustic Amish furniture from our store, you are investing in something that reflects an earlier time, when things were built to last, with classic good looks and exceptional durability.
How to Keep Your Rustic Furniture in Excellent Condition
Amish Outlet Store sells rustic living room and cabin furniture that’s built to last. We know our customers want their pieces to endure as long as possible, so we’re happy to provide general maintenance tips to keep your surfaces looking clean year-round.
We suggest dusting your rustic living room furniture often. You can use a standard feather duster that prevents particles from coating wooden surfaces. Our offerings are extremely durable, but getting in the habit of dusting will reduce the likelihood of surface scratches.
Cleaning rustic furniture takes seconds to do. The supplies you’ll require for cleaning are warm water, mild dish soap and a rag. Do your best to remove liquid spills and food as fast as possible to prevent staining. Remember to dry your rustic living room or cabin furniture completely before moving on to the next piece.
