Rust & root furniture as a separate art form is a decorative direction, a kind of original creativity aimed to make root sculptures and root furniture from outgrowths on trees. Tree's outgrowths differ in the nature of origin and in the possibilities that creators provide, because each of the formations has its own texture, slab image, density, and therefore different ways of applying in the wooden country houses interiors design.
Each root is unique in texture and shape, given by unpredictable nature. Our master cabinetmakers who work with roots create unusual wooden furniture: root tables, root stools, chairs, benches, armchairs, beds, shelves, cabinets and wooden decor for the country houses interiors, as well as large functional objects of everyday life, such as staircases and handrails, are all in rustic and adirondack styles.
Master cabinetmaker who works with roots does not create a product from scratch in the course of work, but helps it to grow from a natural form, develop into a general idea. We are constantly looking for new root pieces that will reveal the potential of any chosen interior style and furniture form.
For rust and root furniture we use outgrowths of the trees. It is benign formation that can appear in the root zone or on the trunk itself. However, root furniture in general allows to use any wood blanks: branches, roots, bark and so on. Wood carving and root furniture art is not mass and not standardized, so it is always unique in their results.
Original root sculptures and interesting wood carving are obtained from juniper — its corrugated trunk, whimsical roots and luxurious branches allow master cabinetmakers to create fantasy compositions of the most bizarre forms. The delicate pinkish-white color on the cut harmoniously contrasts with the darker parts.
Birch billets are interesting in the color of the bark, but they still attract each master cabinetmaker by the fact that on the growths the bark becomes scaly with black curls, which resembles a caracal and makes the final product more original. Oak blanks and bark on them are often embossed, with glossy shine — this, in particular, refers to the Amur and cork oak. It looks interesting in compositions and needs minimal processing for use in decorating. Each of the selected material is prepared and embodied in the most interesting form, fully revealing its creative potential and the idea.
Creating the root furniture is not just a way to create a stool from roots or branches in adirondack style. It is also an opportunity to show the natural fantasy form of the workpiece or decorate the product with an unusual carving. Various epic heroes, characters of fairy tales and legends, mythological creatures often find their reflection in functional and decorative interior of wooden country houses.
What is the value of root furniture as a separate art form and such things for decorating a house? First of all, each of them has its own soul, it brings a little warmth and natural coziness to the dwelling. Wooden furniture can not be replicated, it often can not even be repeated in several copies, because every twig, snag, each growth on the trunk is unique.
The material is left in almost a primordial form, with the beauty created by nature. It is processed minimally, to prolong the durability and safety of use — so, tree trunks are cleared and ground, and the blanks are dried and processed so that bacteria do not develop. In the rest, root furniture is formed with bark, cracks and irregularities, which only complement the authentic composition in its pristine beauty.
