Rustic Furniture – a History

Historic Rustic Furniture

La Lune Collection may be the most exquisitely designed and crafted rustic furniture made today, but rustic furniture itself has a long and fascinating history in the United States. In the mid 1800’s, a clamor for rustic furniture was created by magnificent Adirondack country retreats, or “camps” – the summer escapes for wealthy families such as the Vanderbilts, Morgans, and Roosevelts.

Rustic subsequently became so popular that it was commonplace to be photographed for formal portraits with a charming piece of rustic furniture, as with this dapper gentleman and young child perched on a rustic settee.

Check out some beautiful rustic settees made by the craftsmen of  La Lune Collection – we’ll bet there are some wonderful portraits being taken with them today!
