Rustic Lighting has seen a strong resurgence in recent times. While the trend of rustic furniture originated when the early settlers started making furniture from left over packing crates, over time it has become a mainstay of the most upscale vacation homes. Rustic lighting incorporates the simplicity of the rural life in its design themes. The fixtures are made of wood and metal, with straight lines and minimal curves. While the focus is on all things America, design influences are taken from different locations and periods of history, like medieval England and East Asia.
