Furniture defines living spaces in all sorts of different ways. It changes the aesthetic of space, and a good item of furniture can elevate interior design. On a practical level, and quality furniture adds a dimension of functionality to a living space, whether it’s offering storage room or a place to sit or sleep.
Rustic Oak Furniture
Rustic oak furniture is oak furniture that has a more rugged, natural, “rustic” aesthetic. Whist some kinds of hardwood oak furniture is designed to look modern, sleek and perhaps not much like wood at all, rustic oak is very much easily identifiable as oak, and that’s entirely the point.
Rustic oak furniture can be used in all sorts of living spaces, modern or traditionally designed. Usually, however, it is used in older properties or more “rustic” properties such as cottages. It works in these kinds of contexts because it has obvious aesthetic associations with nature, one can see within in the rich knots and grains of a living piece of wood.
As well as having a striking and sublime aesthetic, rustic oak has all of the practical advantages of oak furniture. It is very durable, and is build to last a life-time (and more.) Although a natural material, hardwood is revered for its strength and it’s suitability for use in building high end pieces of furniture.
