Distressed furniture is an image of rugged, worn, and rustic look. Rustic furniture can add beauty and warmth to any home. To complete the look and feel you are trying to go for, consider accent tables, side tables and console tables.
Having distressed furniture in any room will create a charming and warm atmosphere for yourself and your guests. If you are looking for furniture that will hold up over time then distressed furniture is for you.
Part of the great appeal is the wear and tear such as scuff’s and marks which is almost always encouraged. Furniture that is distressed is easy to work with when designing your interior design scheme. It adds a sense of age and antiqueness. It also can give a romantic feeling to your home, and a sense of peacefulness.
Distressed furniture can come in all types of varieties of colors and finishes. Any natural wood can be distressed. Scratches, dents, worm holes, knots, often accompany a distressed appearance. Distressing will bring out the uniqueness of the bare wood that lies beneath the finished surface of a piece. Places like Cabins, lodges, and certain mountain or country homes almost always require the distressed look. In modern times, it can be found in any home as for instance Victorian homes, which gives it a desirable trend of a relaxed comforted feeling to make you and your guests feel at ease like you are at home.
