The rustic spirit and rustic culture that translate to furnishings give way to the traditional root and burl work furniture or in simpler term, the log furniture. Rustic makers have vividly used different log forms such as twigs, sticks, scrap lumber etc. and the sense of their furniture designs generates varied unique furniture creations.
Most rustic designs come from woodlands of birch, cedar and other tree types. The parts can harmonize or give contrasting textures to the tables, chairs, bed or even the whole cabin when built. In recent times, the elements of making rustic chairs have gone from simple to intricate. For instance, earthy parts of trees such as the stumps or roots are made to create log chairs and surprisingly, they give a new and edgier style to the seating pieces.
In today’s market, the trend seems to shift to more rustic variations. Present in stores are chairs that are basically entwined with vines or soft branches that provides a distinctive and sturdy form. Other chairs are made with interior grain lines of wood presenting their thin and long presence. The chairs are like skinnier logs or legs and are made with numerous special designs. Also, most of the rustic works are not marketed and displayed in its natural finish. Some have been dyed or colored. Through this process, created chairs are highly visual and give off the old or antique feel. Contemporary chairs right now work with driftwoods especially wood makers who reside near the bay, oceans and great water sources. The natural finish of the driftwood makes it ideal for use in seaside cottages or cabins in the forest.
These days, the market is swept with rustic chairs that are made up of mixed materials like stone, metal and other organic components. Granting that it is not wholly natural, these chairs can still be called rustic. They have trendy appeal and their unique form and shape contributes to their popularity. The cost of this chair type is about the same as the prices of other rustic chairs available in local stores. The chairs roughly cost more than $100.
Still known as the least expensive and widely available type of woodcraft, the rustic furniture is marked higher on the list of popular choice for consumers to have and the use of the natural element in homes is greatly advantageous to you and the environment.
