From comfortable simplicity to elegant showplaces, the settings, furnishings, and decor in Rustic Artistry for the Home raise the standard for excellence in this growing field of collectible handcrafted furnishings.

Ralph Kylloe gives us a priviledged look at never-before-photographed interiors and takes us along as he visits multi-million-dollar homes deep in the heart of the American wilderness. His eye is undisputedly keen on quality.

Along with regional styles and past masters, the most talented new rustic furniture artists are showcased here, expanding not only the craftmanship of furniture making but also the vocabulary of rustic style in our time.
