A more sophisticated take on rustic style can be found in lodge or Rocky Mountain style. Contemporary log cabins and ski lodges have open, airy rooms with large columns and beams. River rock used on the fireplace is typical of this style. Furnishings range from cowhide covered antique chairs to leather sofas to barn wood tables. This regional rustic style is influenced both by traditional furnishings and Southwest style. Traditional antiques can be given a rustic makeover with cowhide upholstery or worn leather. Rustic style is not about perfection; rather it is about objects that tell a story.
