So, just what is Industrial Rustic?

Industrial rustic furniture has it’s roots in the mid to late 1800’s with the poorer populations or working classes. They often made furniture as a means to trade or to raise cash. The style does have an association with the great depression in America, but the style has become very popular with modern day home makers.

The term rustic can refer to the perceived lack of craftmanship with the items of furniture, but this is also its appeal. Rustic furniture today mixes historical and contemporary styles and using reclaimed timber is becoming more and more popular. In fact, the use of recycled pallets to make furniture has taken the UK by storm.

Popular creations and designs for industrial rustic furniture are chairs, tables, and garden furniture. Plus, despite their uncrafted look, some of these items have a higher value than the more manufactured pieces of furniture that you’ll find in the furniture stores. An element of bespoke hand made craftmanship is quite sought after and so makes the pieces more valuable.
