I think it’s safe to say that pine furniture was popular in the ’70s. Yield house pine furniture was a famous manufacturer during this time.  But, what about now? Most younger generations would say that decorating with pine furniture belongs in the past. 

However, with current decor trends, pine furniture definitely can upgrade any space. Think about the current decor trend of mid-century modern.

The mid-century modern decor style is a nice blend of old and new. You will often see wood furniture mixed in with more contemporary materials like metals, soft textures, and neutral colors. So is wood furniture making a comeback?

Absolutely! Decorating with wood furniture can add warmth and charm to a room. When it comes to pine furniture, expect a more traditional style with a rustic ambiance.

Pine furniture is often referred to as “knotty pine” because of the knots bleeding through the painted pine furniture pieces after time has passed. For this reason, some people either love or hate pine furniture. If you are going for a more modern look, your probably will not like decorating with pine.

Pine furniture often compliments the farmhouse and cottage style perfectly. With the farmhouse decor style being popular these days, you can go into most home decor stores and see farmhouse decor elements everywhere in the store.

As we spoke about earlier, pine furniture is also known as “knotty pine.” The reason is due to natural resins within the knots and grains. American Country Homestore makes every effort to conceal the knots and grains on our painted finishes.

However, we cannot eliminate them or guarantee to control them. Over time, some sooner than later, the knots and grains may bleed through and discolor the finish. Bleeding knots may be more apparent on light color finishes. 

This discoloration is not to be considered a defect in craftsmanship. Irregularities in the finishes are not considered defects. Instead, they are just another beautiful element of decorating with pine furniture.
