Rustic Style for Dining Rooms
Modern rustic design highlights natural materials, including raw wood and stone. Though this style harkens back to a time when interiors were built with local lumber and decorated with handmade linens, today’s version of rustic style mixes modern convenience with old-fashioned craftsmanship.

Features of Rustic Style

Rustic Dining Room

Modern rustic interiors
focus on the architectural elements of the home and proudly show off how it was built. For example, exposed beams and walls clad in reclaimed paneling make the natural texture of wood a major feature of the room. Likewise, brick and stone walls are left exposed to highlight these building materials.

Rustic Dining Table

Rustic style also works to bring the outdoors in through large banks of windows that showcase nature. Furniture repeats this theme with rough-hewn wood and distressed finishes. Some pieces may incorporate elements of industrial design with dark metals to create and interesting and appealing look. Accessories that complement rustic style tend to be neutral in color and full of texture, such as a sheepskin throw, cowhide upholstery or decorative pillows.

Rustic Design in the Dining Room

To add rustic appeal to your dining room, focus on furniture that combines wood and metal elements. The Karsten dining table features a live-edge poplar tabletop reminiscent of a farm table but secured over modern metal legs for a clean look. The key to its rustic appeal is that the Karsten collection highlights the materials and keeps the design simple.

To complete the look, add Karsten dining chairs that extend the wood and metal theme with slender black legs and a bent wood back. The seats are upholstered in gray fabric for comfort and add another layer of texture to your room. If you need storage for serving dishes and table linens, the Karsten sideboard has room for plenty, with drawers, cabinets and an open shelf. The welded metal frame and distinctive hardware perfectly accent the poplar slab top.
