Furniture is a key element to your rustic kitchen design and a perfect opportunity to round out the theme. Like with many other aspects of rustic design, wood is the word. One popular choice among rustic enthusiasts is to find furniture made from reclaimed barn wood. Log furniture is great for cabins and country homes, but it may be too rustic for some people's taste. Your dining table should be simple and sturdy, and a heavy pine farm table is a great choice. Farm tables often feature plain, square legs and intentional dents and dings to go along with the knotty wood.
