It would go really well with the log bed and wood-top table, not to mention the timber chair!
Log cabins, and the log furniture that go so well with them, have been around for a dog’s age. First built in North America by the early pioneers, they were most often constructed in the forest, so the heavy timber they’re made from wouldn’t have to be hauled very far. Log cabins have become quite symbolic of self-sufficiency and freedom in many ways, especially since just after the American Civil War, when log cabins provided those migrating West with relatively easy-to-build homes. People were just emerging from a very painful and chaotic period, and the log cabin offered a sense of both freedom and security. The construction of log homes peaked in the late 19th century, but then slowly began to dwindle in North America – but as we can see, it has never completely died out! In recent years, they’ve become more and more popular for their natural beauty as well as their practicality as many seek out less-expensive, simpler, and healthier ways to live.
People are building logs cabins not only to live in, but as guest houses, studios, saunas, therapy rooms, and even playhouses for children. They are just so versatile, there is so much you can do with them!
If you are one of these people, or even if you just have an interest in log furniture - then check out this lovely log couch – wouldn’t it look just perfect on your front porch or living room? The ideal finishing piece for your ideal log cabin home!
