Primitive Furniture

Rustic simplicity and country beauty! These pieces are reminiscent of the original primitive furnishings of antique woodworkers and pioneers. Their functionality and handhewn, rustic look makes them a popular choice for history enthusiasts and those looking for unique reproduction pieces to add to their home.

Another appealing aspect of primitive furniture is its wonderfully muted color palette. Like old-fashioned milk paints of the 19th century, our furniture comes in true-to-period colors. Inspired by original plant dyes from earlier centuries, these primitive colors are a nod to past craftsmanship and add authenticity to your collection.

Take a look at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop's well-crafted primitive furniture pieces — you’ll find that not only do they add colorful charm to your décor, but they also make use of the available space in your home. The Jelly Cabinet Set, for example, takes advantage of vertical space, allowing you plenty of storage room for  pantry items and canned goods.

3 Panel Punch-Tin Cupboard Primitive Punch Tin

Adorn your cupboards with primitive charm! Punch tin is a popular American folk art style from the earliest days, long before the era of refrigeration. The punch tin allowed air to circulate while preventing the intrusion of harmful pests and dust. It was often used in pie safes and food safes to help keep their contents fresh. Popular designs included wheat sheaves, hearts, circles and flowers. The 3-Panel Punch-Tin Cupboard or Punch-Tin Cupboard would add charm and storage space to your kitchen, and they’re just as useful today as they were 200 years ago.

Primitive Storage

One of the wonderful aspects of primitive furniture is that many pieces were designed with storage needs in mind. Shown here are our Knotty Pine Lockers with the coordinating Knotty Pine Shelf Bench, which can help you organize your mudroom, attic or perhaps a child's bedroom. Our Primitive Pine Trunks offer simple storage in vibrant colors to add style to your primitive home, not take away from it. The Mitten Box With Pegs is another example of the functional practicality of the primitive style. You may be surprised how quickly and easily your country home becomes more organized — and takes on a stylish rustic look to boot. What other style of furniture can let you have your cake and eat it too? Give it a try — you will be impressed!
