The popularity of rusticating – city folks retiring or escaping the stress and hubbub of the city and seeking a quieter life in the countryside – began in the late nineteenth century as city life became more complicated and unpleasant. It got a shot in the arm from the hippie movement with its back to the land ideal. The popularity of rusticating has been increased with the ability to make a good living anywhere in the world over the internet. It is no longer necessary to give up the dream of a simple and natural lifestyle in the name of Mammon. The original nineteenth century rusticators were wealthy families who only spent their summer months at their log house plans camps but their household staffs often remained behind during the winters fashioning furniture for their patrons homes. The designs of these pieces reflected a desire to create interesting furniture – from chairs to mirror frames to tables to lamps – using only materials such as logs and twigs found naturally nearby. Nowadays rustic furniture-makers follow the same tradition of utilizing natural local materials to create beautiful pieces of authentic log furniture and decorative pieces; however they often use modern accents and materials such as glues and finishes. Most of these furniture-makers are small mom and pop businesses which often offer their wares for sale over the internet.
With that information there are ways to make sure you have eco-friendly furniture.
