The fact that the nights are cold and dark can make a crisp white contemporary room feel chilly and stark. Taking notes from cozy cabins, add a few rustic textures like walnut, cozy plaid textiles, leather and brass to warm it right up. While rustic cabin style may seem at odds with modern/contemporary rooms, these items combine cozy textures with clean lines and clever design. Here are five favorite rustic modern pieces.
Lights Up! Woody Pendant Lamp. This beautiful pendant adds the textures of a thin wood veneer’s grain and linen, clean modern lines and a warm glow overhead overhead.
Gus Modern Hex Ottoman. The large-scale colorful plaid will add a cozy cabin touch to your modern room. It’s easy to pull around by the handle when you need to move it for extra seating or a place to put your feet up.
Skargaarden Marstrand Candle Lantern. Beautiful caramel-colored leather trimmed out with tacks add rich rustic texture to this simple glass hurricane. Use them on a tablescape or hanging indoors or out.
Twig Terrarium Gentle Reminder Male. For those who take a close look through the glass at the clever terrariums by Twig, there’s always a fun surprise. In this case, it’s a man holding an I Heart You sign among the stones and moss. A wooden sphere tops it off perfectly.
Gus Modern Wireframe Coffee Table. The mix of deep rich walnut wood and black, powder-coated steel grid framework is a wonderful balance of rustic and modern.
