I've spent the past thirty years in the rustic design business. Log cabins and all the natural surroundings and furnishings that come with them thrill me. Rustic homes have come a long way in the past few decades. There seems to be a much greater concern for "green" considerations than there was just a few years ago. And along with that, many designers of traditionally built homes are incorporating rustic elements into the their structures. Builders are adding a rustic porch or a rustic den or living room. Designers are adding a piece or two of very high-end rustic furnishings to traditional residential settings.
