Rustic log furniture from the Amish Log Furniture Collection offers a warm welcome in any room. Comprised of one-of-a-kind pieces, this collection offers a natural look that brings the outdoors in.
The woodworkers who build this collection use a process to heat treat the logs to ensure clean wood for your new furniture. If you love the log cabin look that takes you away from the everyday and puts you in a mindset to rest and relax, this log furniture collection is one you shouldn’t miss.
The wood types used in this collection are pine, cedar and aspen.
Pine, while considered a softer hardwood (meaning it will mark and dent more easily than other hardwoods), offers plenty of strength to create magnificent log beds, coffee tables and rich, rustic rockers. Pine is fairly lightweight and displays stains and paints nicely. It’s a versatile wood that’s friendly and natural. It will feature more knots than other hardwoods.
Cedar brings more red hues to the look of log furniture. Cedar, like pine, is a softer wood that can still hold its own for durable wood furniture with its strength and stability. Cedar has a fresh scent that comes from the oils in the wood, and it naturally repels bugs, making it even more appealing.
Aspen wood logs feature white and light brown colors, along with streaks and discolorations that add to its rustic character. It’s pliable, making it easy to carve and shape. Aspen won’t splinter, and there’s steady growth among Aspen trees, keeping the wood affordable.
Rustic Furniture Appeal
The Amish Log Furniture Collection goes all in with a rustic look. There will be knots and imperfections that add to the natural look and feel of rustic furniture. Rustic wood includes knots, superficial cracks and prominent patterns. Many pieces in this collection offer you the choice of a live edge that exposes the wood just beneath the bark or a cut edge with a round over top.
Makers of this collection take their time to produce a quality product. Every drawer is dovetailed to offer the strongest support and glides out on full-extension slides that bring the drawers out fully. You’ve found superb quality log furniture for every room in the house. From kitchen islands to cozy rockers, to beautiful log beds and hutches, this collection brings home the best in log furniture.
