Rustic Style

Overview

Each region of the country has its own variants of Rustic Style, from bent-cypress settees of the Deep South, to fine hickory pieces originating in Indiana, to steerhide-covered lodgepole pine armchairs of the West. But not all of it is antique. As author Ralph Kylloe reveals in this, his sixth book on the subject, dozens of first-rate contemporary makers, including Doug Tedrow, Lestor Santos, Peter Winter, and Barney and Susan Bellinger, are crafting a wide variety of rustic household furnishings - from beds and...

Overview

Each region of the country has its own variants of Rustic Style, from bent-cypress settees of the Deep South, to fine hickory pieces originating in Indiana, to steerhide-covered lodgepole pine armchairs of the West. But not all of it is antique. As author Ralph Kylloe reveals in this, his sixth book on the subject, dozens of first-rate contemporary makers, including Doug Tedrow, Lestor Santos, Peter Winter, and Barney and Susan Bellinger, are crafting a wide variety of rustic household furnishings - from beds and armoires to dining room sets, from easy chairs, desks, and storage chests to all manner of other comfortable, durable household objects that offer a distinct flavor of the outdoors. In addition to wood, of course, many other natural materials are used: rattan, rush, or leather thongs may be crafted to weave seat backs and bottoms; antlers that are seasonally shed by animals such as elk and deer find use as table legs, arms of chandeliers, and other delicate linear forms; birch and other bark may be found covering the flat surfaces of chests, headboards, and desks; even tiny lengths of twigs may become mosaic patterns on all sorts of wooden furniture. Here are ideas for the home-owner, decorator, architect, and collector.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The log and stone camps and lodges in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, which gave city dwellers a place to escape, have become synonymous with rustic style. Carley examines the architecture and interiors of this turn-of-the-century style through history and photographs of buildings such as Sagamore lodge in the Adirondacks as well as contemporary dwellings that echo this rustic style throughout the United States. Kylloe, a dealer and collector of rustic furniture and decorative accessories, examines furnishings and provides a history of the style and its manufacturers and designers. Carley has photos of individual items of furniture, Kylloe focuses on showing the furniture in its rustic setting with captions showing history and provenance--conflicting approaches that complement each other.
