RUSTIC MOUNTAIN FURNITURE FOR YOUR CABIN

Rustic mountain furniture for your cabin is easier to find than you think. Typically, when you think of rustic home furnishings for your mountain retreat, you get an image of chunky log furniture and accessories in the shape of a bears and pine cones. Not anymore! The once rustic cabin has evolved into a more livable space for occupants of all types.

For the eco-friendlier crowd, Recycled Teak and Reclaimed Oak will add an earth-friendly touch and an unsurpassed unique quality. These pieces are definitely one-of-a kind and it is best to view them in person because sizes and colors will vary.

Now, not everyone appreciates the rustic flavor of this wood so for those who are more refined, many woods in the Rosewood family will cater to your needs. In a more classically designed setting, Sheesham Wood, with it’s honey accents, will add a rustic warmth to your space. Note: just as the Recycled Teak and Oak vary in color, so will these piece.

For a more uniform look, Keykor Wood would work wonderfully. Not only is this golden toned wood beautiful, but durable as well. Many of these hardwood pieces will have hand carvings and iron accents.  All of these wood choices accommodate a rustic home and I would recommend mixing the woods to satisfy your taste.

HOW TO CARE FOR DOWN PILLOWS

Please remember the following tips on how to care for down pillows. The less often you clean your down pillow insert, the longer Rachel Navy Pillowit will last. Washing them approximately once a year should keep them fresh.

Always keep your down insert covered with a slip cover or sham.  This will keep dust, dirt and body oils away from the insert at all times.

If you have allergies, you can add an extra layer of protection by buying a pillow cover.  This serves as a buffer between your insert and your sham.

Launder or dry clean your Villa Pillow sham as directed.  Never wash the sham and the pillow together. Always follow the manufacturer’s care label for your sham.  If no care Seelabel is found, always dry clean.

Most down pillows can be washed in cold water with a mild detergent or down wash, on a gentle cycle.  Try to place an even number of pillows in your washer to avoid an uneven load.

After the wash cycle has completed, squeeze any excess water from your pillows.  Do not be alarmed if your pillow’s wet feathers smell stronger.  That is normal and the odor will fade after you have dried them.

Tumble dry on the lowest setting and place 1-2 clean tennis balls in the dryer with your down items.  This will help them retain their bounce and move the fill around as it drys. You may have to run the dryer cycle 1-2 times until they are fully dry.  After each cycle, shake your pillows and break up any feather clump, if necessary.

Store your clean unused down pillows in a dry, well-ventilated area to avoid mildew.
