Selecting rustic furniture
Furniture that is made from hard wood or roughly finished wood along with a rough or grainy appearance can be termed as rustic furniture. Rustic furniture is made mainly from wood such as hickory, cypress, cedar and pine wood. Cedar is a popular choice for rustic furniture as it is less sappy. Sometimes aromatic cedar is also used. Pine wood is the last choice as it is very sappy and soft and thus does not set in well to make furniture. You can bring a natural, rugged and organic feel to your living space. Rustic furniture can be natural, stained or painted.
