A dining table is the centerpiece of the dining room, so it's important to choose a strong option that broadcasts Rustic style. Go with a design that's unmistakably country, such as a trestle table or another design that features thick wooden supports and a solid one-piece tabletop. A simple and sturdy design goes a long way in establishing this signature style. Look for tables made from natural wood that show off the grain pattern and are coupled with a matte or low-gloss finish. The understated style of a Rustic dining table will provide a reliable foundation for the rest of your dining furniture and decor.
The most important part of choosing Rustic dining chairs is making sure they complement your table. Chairs should be simple and sturdy in construction and avoid details such as carvings. You can even substitute a country-style bench on one or both sides of your table to accommodate more guests or small children without disrupting the Rustic vibe. Chairs in darker-toned wood work well with a Rustic aesthetic, but avoid highly polished wood that distracts from the rough-hewn feel.
Look to primarily wood-and-metal bar and counter stools to promote a Rustic theme throughout your dining area. Materials such as iron and gunmetal that typically dominate Industrial style can also be incorporated into Rustic stools for a raw country look. The saddle stool is another popular design that perfectly captures the charm of an old farmhouse with its simple wooden structure. For something a little more cozy and Contemporary, opt for tufted counter-height chairs with nailhead trim. Cushioned stools with nailhead accents around the seat also lend to a Rustic vibe.
More than just a storage solution for dishes and serveware, the right buffet, sideboard, or china cabinet will lend to your Rustic theme and provide additional space to display decor as well. Solid wood constructions and simple hardware set apart Rustic cabinets. While other styles may shy away from a thick-framed, boxy look, Rustic embraces it to great effect. It's best to have a spacious dining room in order to accommodate a buffet or china cabinet, so your set up won't feel cramped or crowded.
