Walk into any mountain lodge that has logs forming walls plus the natural scent of wood oozing from the air and you feel right at home. There is just something unique and fulfilling about a rustic decor that provides an aura of freedom and inspiration, creating a calming environment. By mixing the technical advantages of today, such as dome lights and durable fabrics, with rustic furniture, a peaceful abode is formed.
A southwestern flair is popular in many parts where country is taking hold of many households to have a healthier and greener lifestyle. Here you can use different pieces of rustic furniture to keep with the tone and also have heirlooms to pass down to new generations. Contemporary rustic furniture is a way to keep your decor alive but not overbearing. Long-stretching side tables, bed frames or hand carved coffee tables are perfect for blending interior and exterior beauty.
One new design that is attracting attention is the rustic platform bed. A Low-lying frame with copper or stainless steel trim keeps a modern yet comforting mood in the bedroom where stress can be left at the door. Straight, seamless lines of natural oak, cherry or maple can relax a mood just by surrounding oneself with natural elements. A room does not have to be heavily laden with rustic furniture in order to make a statement. By using stones, water, candles and plants, the natural rustic feel still exists.
If you have a huge area where large windows bring the presence of the outdoors into the room, unique pieces of rustic furniture can expand the presence of nature.

A circular coffee table carved in unique fashion can turn into a centerpiece of fun and activity for the whole family without fear of breaking glass or harming delicate features.
