Plaid is another option. And don’t forget the effectiveness of hand-made candles to give your rustic style the perfect aura.
Leather is a great choice for upholstery. The neat thing about a leather chair is it sits well in a rustic interior (no pun intended), and it’s also very comfortable. You just can’t beat that!
