Read an Excerpt

Comfort and livability are the keys to a great living area. Feet and beverages are not out of place on the coffee tables. We invite pets to cuddle up with us on any one of the chairs or couches. Lamp shades of mica, glass, cloth or parchment sport a host of rustic scenes. Canoes hang from the ceiling, and the fireplace makes us cozy on a chilly day.

Rustic-style couches that are comfortable—apart from those made of Indiana hickory or in mission style—are very difficult to find. Consequently, many homes today have new upholstered sofas that are often the focal point of the room. The most comfortable always seem to be those that are oversized and give one the sensation of sinking into a cloud or pillow. Many rustic homes have sleeper sofas for guests who happen to show up on weekends for an extended visit
