City of Plattsburgh is rich in history and played a pivital role in the Revolutionary
War of 1812 because of its stratigic location at the head of Lake Champlain. The
Battle of Plattsburgh occured on Sept 11, 1814 and involved over 15,000 British
Troops and a large Navy Fleet. Badly outnumbered, only 1500 Americian army troops
under the command of Brigadier Alexander MaComb and a small Americian fleet under
the command of Lieutanant Thomas Macdonough successfully defended Cumberland Bay
and defeated the British forces. Today the Battle of Plattsburgh is celebrated
and reinacted between September 7-15th in honor of these Americian heros.

The idea of behind rustic furniture was to create
interesting pieces using natural materials such as twigs and logs
that would blend into a decor and not stand out . Rustic furniture
makers today follow the age old tradition of using natural materials
to create spectacular furniture and rustic decor pieces. Rustic
furniture usually has no set line or angles. Each piece is individually
Once you have a log home with rustic elements you will
want to continue that element with the furniture
Finding beautiful log furniture, stairs and railings, and other
pieces that will complement your beautiful log home
is easier than you might think. Log furniture is naturally beautiful.
You can see all of the character and wood grain of the logs used
in every piece of wood furniture. Log furniture made with timbers,
twigs and branches brings nature right into your home or cabin.
From custom crafted twig furniture, stairs and railings to antler
chandeliers, your unique rustic
look is just a few clicks away.
