High-Quality Furniture Materials

We start with kiln-dried hardwood lumber sourced from North Carolina to create the frames of our furniture. The “no-sag spring system” and plush cushioning we use in our furniture will last you for many years. Our experienced furniture makers then apply the final touches. They may hand-tie springs or sew the seams of our durable covers. You will receive a piece of high-quality custom living room furniture that is handcrafted in North Carolina.

Southern Rust offers a wide range of high-quality furniture, made in North Carolina. Your furnishings will be shipped directly to you and are custom-made to suit your tastes. You can save hundreds of dollars. Place your furniture order online today!

What Makes Us Different?

At Southern Rust Furniture, we believe in the power of craftsmanship and the unique character that comes from combining the rustic charm of wood with the sleek, enduring strength of metal. Our approach is what sets us apart, focusing on the fine details that make each piece a one-of-a-kind work of art. The industrial rustic style is more than just a trend for us; it’s a reflection of a lifestyle that appreciates the beauty in imperfection and the story behind every scratch and patina.


We go beyond the conventional, exploring the unique textures and materials that nature and industry offer. Our commitment to craftsmanship is evident in the meticulous attention we pay to every joint, weld, and finish. This dedication ensures that each piece not only stands out for its beauty but also for its quality and durability. By choosing Southern Rust Furniture, you’re not just selecting a piece of furniture; you’re investing in a piece of art that will enhance your space for years to come.

The Custom Furniture Process

The journey to creating your custom piece with Southern Rust Furniture is a partnership from start to finish. It begins with your vision—maybe a spark of inspiration from something you’ve seen or a need for a piece that just doesn’t seem to exist yet. We take that vision and, through a collaborative consultation process, refine it into a design that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

This process is not just about selecting materials and styles; it’s about understanding how the piece will live in your space and become a part of your daily life. We consider every aspect, from the dimensions that fit your space perfectly to the finish that complements your décor. Our goal is to ensure that the final piece is not just what you wanted but something that you couldn’t have imagined being any better.

Materials We Love

Our commitment to sustainability and beauty is reflected in our choice of materials. Upcycled wood, with its rich history and unique character, brings warmth and story to our pieces. Each plank tells a story of its past life, adding depth and connection to the furniture it becomes. Industrial metals, chosen for their strength and versatility, provide a contemporary contrast to the wood, their sleek lines and finishes bringing a modern edge to the rustic charm.

We carefully select our finishes to enhance the natural beauty of these materials, protecting their integrity while highlighting their inherent textures and patterns. This thoughtful approach to materials not only ensures that our furniture is beautiful and durable but also that it’s environmentally responsible. By reclaiming wood and choosing sustainable materials, we’re helping to reduce waste and promote a more sustainable approach to furniture making.
