Missing the quaint comfort of a country cabin? Skip the long trip out of town, just pick out one of these rustic coffee tables. With oodles of rural charm, they’re sure to make your home feel like the ultimate backwoods retreat.
You may love the look of rustic furniture and furnishings, but feel a little intimidated about how to incorporate it into your existing decor. Can contemporary style peacefully coexist with its country cousin? Of course! One of the best ways to bring texture and variety into a space is to bring in pieces that differ ever so slightly from your usual style. Rustic furniture in particular has a wonderfully homey, earthy quality that does wonders for the warmth and ambiance of a space. And that’s exactly what you want in a coffee table, which serves as a focal point in your living room, helping to create a positive, welcoming feel.
Obviously, wood, both distressed or repurposed, as well as minimally-stained, plays a big role in these tables. These organic, natural materials look amazing next to canvas chairs, or draped with a burlap runner. Colour-wise, try to amplify their natural friendly feel with yellows, reds, and oranges, all of which will help bring out those tones in the wood.
Other decorations that will help you really nail a rustic vibe might include tall beeswax candles, which look and smell amazing, and wrought-iron sconces for lighting, a killer combo with tables featuring metal legs. How about some artistic touches? You’ll have to grab one or two stunning landscape photography books to display on it, while on the walls we’re thinking watercolour animal art prints!
