Description

With a focus on architecture and details, rustic expert and author Ralph Kylloe introduces creative rustic designs that are inspiring a revival of cabin craftsmanship in his newest book, The Rustic Cabin. The book features log homes that are newly built, but steeped in regional history, as well as the log-building history of the Scandinavian settlers and mountain men of centuries past. Kylloe provides photographic details of the highest-quality workmanship in stone masonry and log work, highlighting the unique blend of fine antiques and contemporary furnishings that these homes exhibit. Arts & Crafts, Scandinavian, and Western legacies in furniture building and interior styling make each room a smorgasbord for the eyes, and a dream come true for lovers of rustic decor. The Rustic Cabin features homes that are rich in vision, beauty, and warmth, photographed only as Ralph Kylloe could capture them. Ralph Kylloe received his Ed.D. from Boston University and has taught in the university level for many years. He is a leading authority on rustic furniture and owner of the Ralph Kylloe Gallery. He is author of eleven previous books.show more

With a focus on architecture and details, Ralph Kylloe introduces creative rustic designs that are reviving the age-old tradition of cabin craftsmanship. Included are newly built log and stone homes steeped in history, not only of the region where they are built but also of the log-building history of Scandinavian ancestors and mountain men whose small log cabins protected them from the harsh elements of the mountain frontier and gave them comfort by a cozy fire. Displaying photographic details of the highest-quality workmanship in stone masonry and log work, these homes also boast a blending of fine antiques and contemporary furnishings. Arts & Crafts, Scandinavian, and western legacies in furniture building and interior styling steal the scene in many rooms. These homes are rich in vision, beauty and warmth-photographed and framed by Ralph's keen eye for quality and richness.show more
