It reminds us of an era when technology was not so commonplace and neither were the modern day amenities.

Like other design patterns a rustic interior is also a typical one marked by its less pretentious yet sophisticated and naturalistic yet elegant style of appearance.

The wall design could be diverse but the most popular is the cob like craving. The top shade is also of wood-like qualities where the sheet is thick and the cover is more opaque than transparent.
