Rustic glam is a posh yet livable look. Polished metals and velvet textiles elevate heavily distressed pieces by creating a look that is high in contrast. A space that's layered in these rich textures needs few accessories as the pieces speak for themselves.

Adding a rustic piece to a modern space creates a high end look that has depth. Modern homes can often feel impersonal but when you implement a piece in distressed or weathered wood it adds major character.

Rustic can easily go industrial with details such as nailheads and substantial hardware. Elements such as exposed wires and large scale artwork give distressed furniture a no-nonsense look with style that is unforgettable.

Rustic can be casual and stylish with the right accessories. Lean and layer artwork for a more relaxed look and fill in empty spaces with books and easy-going accessories. Finish this fresh look with an organic element such as a simple floral arrangement.

Have a little fun with rustic furniture by going eclectic. Pair bold and colorful fabrics with graphic black and white artwork. Quirky lighting will add a stylish and sophisticated spin.

If you thought you couldn't use rustic furniture then think again. You can make rustic pieces work with any style as long as the other elements in the space are right. Visit our design center to learn how to blend rustic pieces seamlessly into your home.
