Log Furniture, is the type of rustic furniture, that incorporates the use of whole logs in its design. Log Furniture is often very durable and long lasting, depending on the manufacturing methods used. Log furniture, reclaimed wood furniture and other types of rustic furniture have increased in popularity in recent years, and as a result, there are many more styles of decor and options available for those looking to furnish their mountain lodges, country homes or log cabins. The more economical lines of log furniture are typically milled by machine and massed produced, while those shoppers who are looking for unique style may opt for the more expensive collections of handcrafted one of a kind log furniture.

Some of the different types of log homes can include; handcrafted, which are typically made of logs that have been peeled, but essentially unchanged from their original appearance as trees; hewn logs, logs that are hewn by an axe to an oval, hexagonal, octagonal or rectangular section; sawn logs, logs that are sawn to a standard width, but with their original heights; milled (also known as machine profiled), made with a log house moulder, made with logs that have been run through a manufacturing process which then converts them into timbers which are consistent in size and appearance. Handcrafted log houses have been built for centuries in Scandinavia, Russia and Eastern Europe, and were typically built using only an axe and knife. The Scandinavian settlers of New Sweden brought the craft to North America in the early 18th century, where it was quickly adopted by other colonists and Native Americans. Possibly the oldest surviving log house in the United States is the C. A. Nothnagle Log House (circa 1640) in New Jersey.
