Furniture in the Primitive Style

Primitive Furniture

The rustic simplicity and country beauty of primitive furniture makes it a useful and timeless style for your home. Recalling original primitive pieces from antique woodworkers and pioneers, the functionality and handhewn roughness of primitive styled furniture pieces makes it 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. Primitive country colors instantly bring this design style into your home. 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 and useful primitive furniture pieces, and you may find the perfect ones for every space in your home, such as the Jelly Cabinet Set, useful as a standalone pantry or for storing canned goods.

Simplistic Seating

Take a seat, prop a pillow or simply stop to take a rest when putting on your shoes with these classically primitive seating options in your country home. Rustic country colors enhance the old world early American feel of these pieces as they fit perfectly into your current decorating style.

Primitive Chair and Knotty Pine Shelf Bench provide rustic primitive seating or storage in any room; Knotty Pine Bench features a long seat for sitting in a bedroom or propping home accents at the end of your bed. Solid knotty pine construction reveals the rich natural texture of the wood for a country cottage look. You can decorate your mudroom, kitchen, living room or porch with the appeal of classicly styled, primitive furniture.

3 Panel Punch-Tin CupboardPrimitive Punch-Tin

A popular American folk art style since the earliest days, punch-tin adorns our cupboards with primitive charm. Pie safes and food safes were popular before the days of refrigeration. The punch-tin allowed air to circulate while preventing the intrusion of harmful pests or dust. Popular designs included wheat sheafs, hearts, circles, and flowers. 3-Panel Punch-Tin Cupboard or Punch-Tin Cupboard would look great in your kitchen, proving to be just as useful today as it was 200 years ago.

Primitive Storage

One of the many wonderful aspects of primitive furniture is its storage capability. Shown here are the Knotty Pine Lockers with the coordinating Knotty Pine Shelf Bench, for a look that organizes your mudroom or perhaps a child's bedroom. Our Primitive Pine Trunks offer simple storage in vibrant colors because your storage trunks should add to the style of your primitive home, not take away from it. Iron Stands are available for all three sizes for lifting the trunks off the floor, giving you the option to repurpose them as tables!
