What is rustic chic?
For some people, rustic style is akin to “decorating like an old western saloon.” Real and mythic images of the Old West, rural America, and iconic log cabins (and saloons) are cultural touchstones that, of course, loom large in our style vocabulary.
If you’re looking for rustic custom furniture and décor that doesn’t necessarily evoke the rustic of the popular imagination, then the rustic chic aesthetic may be perfect for you.
By embracing the beauty and possibilities of minimally processed wood, CustomMade artisans who create rustic chic furniture and décor remind us that rustic simplicity doesn’t mean a lack of sophistication. Rather, it means making the most of what’s available.
Put aside the assumptions and take a look at some rustic chic from the CustomMade galleries.
What appeals to you about rustic chic?
