Quilts with an aesthetic similar to those that were originally made, from scraps and pieces of old clothing or other textiles. They were used to create huge and warm duvets, thus reusing textiles that would not be possible otherwise. Thus, becoming beautiful, warm, and functional pieces of the most traditional rustic style.

  1. RURAL ART

Cows, barns, rolling hills or green pastures, utensils, and tools of the field are the perennial favorites of this style. If like me you love to «literally disconnect», and make regular rural getaways, you can take a look at the local culture, and buy unique pieces by local artists.

If, on the other hand, you like it but in a subtle way, you can always add in your interior decoration beautiful sheets of cattle. Now you have professionals who sell their best photos, so you can dress your walls with different compositions.

  1. A RUSTIC TABLE

The classic, rustic farmhouse table is roomy, sturdy, and built to last. You can buy it in any specialized store, design it yourself, or inherit it.

You can always have a good local craftsman make a custom table for you. From boards or rustic wood, and transform it into a beautiful table in a modern rustic style. No matter where you find your rustic table, what should matter to you is that it is made of solid wood.

  1. RUSTIC BENCHES

You can use simple and versatile benches on the table, at the entrance, or at the foot of the bed. It can never hurt to have an extra bench or two at home.

  1. HEADBOARDS AND FORGE CANOPY

Classic forged iron headboards, or posters, pictures, and letters in metal and industrial-style are elements that will never go out of style. You can complete the set with striped bedding or a modern duvet.

  1. TOLIX CHAIRS

Created in the 1930s in France. The Tolix chair has a robust industrial character that works perfectly with a modern rustic or modern farmhouse style. If instead of a long bench, you decide to use these characteristic chairs, do it next to a rustic or industrial wooden table, I’m sure you will love the set.

  1. SHAKER STYLE CHAIRS

The Shaker style is linked to a small emigrant sect from England in the mid-18th century in America. Where his priorities were: simplicity, craftsmanship, order, cleanliness, and usefulness. They result in an austere, light, and easily transportable style of furniture.

Now you can opt for the originals, or choose a more modern or updated version. The chairs so characteristic of this style are perfect for a country house and add the rustic touch to the decorative set.

  1. ANTIQUE WOODEN FURNITURE

The pieces in which the passage of time is evident through their patina add a lot of character to the set. Especially if you want to integrate this style into your newly built flat or apartment. To achieve this “old” effect or the passage of time, you can reuse the fronts of old rustic furniture. This will give you an extra rustic feel.

  1. INDUSTRIAL STOOLS

No matter where you place them, you can do it in your kitchen office, at the bar for morning breakfast, or in your work area at home. These sturdy and adjustable metal stools will always look especially good in contrast to a milk-white wall.

  1. OLD CABINETS AND OLD WOODEN CUPBOARDS

The more chipped and worn the paint is, the better!

Or if you are a “handyman” and you love DIY projects, you can choose to restore these pieces. Through a coat of paint or using the chalk paint technique.

  1. SHELVES AND BASKETS IN «HEN MESH»

Shelves and wire baskets are great extra storage items for towels, bath products, scarves, and hats; for fruit, potatoes, and onion. Or anything you need to store, through a beautiful shape and that combines with all the style.

  1. FARM OR BARN LAMPS

Simple and industrial in design, so commonly used in more modern and contemporary spaces as in rustic and industrial rooms because it’s an almost mandatory choice in a rustic or modern farmhouse style.

Add them in your kitchen, in your dining room, or even in its wall light version for your entrance, or reading corner.

  1. BARN DOORS

Do you want to add this farmhouse or rustic style with a single element?

Trade your current doors for barn-style sliding doors. But before doing so, make sure of the measurements to make sure you have enough space to place it.

  1. ENAMELLED IRON ACCESSORIES

Metallic accessories, galvanized steel, enameled, etc., will give the balance point to a rustic aesthetic. I think it is a very complete and “grateful” style, as it provides you with versatility, functionality, and warmth. And as I told you at the beginning, you can include this style in any type of home, which I am sure it will be phenomenal.
