Rustic Furniture & Log Furniture
Rustic furniture is a design of furniture with a more natural and often rugged look intended to exist in harmony with the natural environment.

These days, in our modern technology-driven world, there is an increasing need to live closer to nature but nature herself does not adhere to rigid or straight lines but rather, is free flowing.
This might explain at least in part why there has been such a resurgence in the popularity with what is now defined as rustic furniture, as more and more people are turning to more natural and free-form designs of furniture, that are individually crafted by hand. It implies a connection to nature and a respect of natural materials, with the feel of the outdoors and of simpler times.
If you are looking to own some beautiful rustic furniture, Johan Nel of Knysna Woodworkers can make some for you! Johan loves creating rustic designs in particular, with its natural free-form edges and the emphasis on the beauty of the wood itself.
