There are many different types of furniture out there, but there’s only one that evokes images of intertwined hands, fluttering eyes, and swiftly beating hearts: the love seat. In honor of Valentine’s Day, let’s take a look at this romantically defined seating apparatus.
A love seat is a smaller sofa, usually only long enough to seat two people comfortably. Having a love seat in your home provides the opportunity to share a relaxing environment with the one you care about most.
Beginning in the 1800s, these chairs often seated two people and thus began to be called “love seats” or sometimes “courting chairs.” Due to the era’s strict standards of conduct for couples, antique love seats sometimes included a divider between the two sections in order to emphasize modesty. In modern times, love seats provide a cozy seating arrangement for any two people, not just those who are romantically attached.
Love seats can turn any room into a warm and inviting getaway for the entire family. For generations, love seats have been sought after to provide a get-close seating option in the home. Many people choose to have both a love seat and matching sofa in their living room furniture sets to complement the décor and provide more seating options.
World Rustic Imports’ selection of love seats has taken that wholesome tradition and transformed it into an experience in comfort and relaxation for two that can’t be surpassed. Some of our more popular love seat styles are leather, like the one shown here. This design features modern nailheads and rolled armrests. It would fit perfectly in any master bedroom or living room so you can snuggle up with the one you love.
Visit the World Rustic Imports showroom floor and find the perfect love seat for you. Let us help you find a great love seat at a price that fits your budget. We’re located at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City, and we’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
Nothing beats getting into a warm bed on a cold night. As the weather gets colder, it’s time to get cozy!
Winter is the perfect opportunity to be creative and add layers of pattern, color, and texture to create an inviting and cozy winter nest. Warm throws, coverlets, quilts, and cushions are all extras you can pile on during this time of year.
Layering is the best way to beat the cold in the bedroom. As temperatures change throughout the night you can adjust your layers accordingly. It’s also a great idea when you share your bed—it’s nearly impossible to get the temperature perfect for two people at once!
However, don’t just add another cotton blanket; it will add weight, but not warmth. Instead, cuddle up with a wool, down, or synthetic fill comforter. Or, trade your cotton duvet cover for one made of flannel to immediately warm up your bed.
When building cozy layers, this layering order is a good rule of thumb for choosing colors:
- Medium color: top sheet and two pillows
- Dark color: duvet and bottom fitted sheet
- Light color: white or off-white for two pillows
Now that you’ve warmed up your bed to the max, it’s time to make some changes to your room. Keep your curtains closed to help insulate the room and add a rug or cowhide underfoot. The final touch is the perfect pine bed. With its soft wood and round edges, a rustic pine bed is the perfect addition to your winter décor.
Grab a hot cup of your favorite warm beverage and head to our showroom at World Rustic Imports. Located at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City and open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
Winter holidays are a gleeful break from the norm.
There are wet mittens on the heater and mini marshmallows in the hot chocolate. There are sleds slinging down the hill and every home is lit up with lights and cheer.
Yummy smells waft from the kitchen. At this time of year, you don’t need an excuse to stay snuggled in your warm bed or sneak extra shortbread cookies.
It’s the season to entertain friends and family, and honor timeless holiday traditions; strengthening family ties like no other time of the year. Family stories are shared and fond memories are made while you’re breaking bread together around the holiday table. Kids carefully construct gingerbread houses verging on the edge of collapse.
The whole family gathers around the table for board games and huge meals. Kids jump at the chance to play to a quick hand of cards or board game while dinner is being prepared, or anxiously wait to set up a new game as soon as the plates are cleared. It’s a time to remember special memories and make new ones.
A sturdy table large enough to seat the whole family is a must for this holiday season—like this solid wood table, with enough natural beauty that you won’t bother creating the perfect “tablescape.” Show off the natural wood and carving this table has to offer at your next holiday gathering.
This time of year is perfect for staying in, keeping warm around a table full of delicious food, and spending quality time with our loved ones. Spend time this season making memories around the perfect gathering table, available at World Rustic Imports. Stop by our showroom located at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City. We’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
When you consider everything a sideboard is designed to hold—china, stemware, and silverware, not to mention mundane necessities like matches, bottle openers, and coasters—it’s clear that this item of furniture can be one of the most practical in the house.
With the holiday season approaching, it’s time to focus on the sideboard.
The sideboard is an ideal spot for carving the Thanksgiving turkey, a place for dish warmers to keep dessert warm, or a spot for overflow holiday side dishes.
The shelves or cabinets underneath the sideboard’s top should be dedicated to oversized serving items, like punch bowls, large serving trays and bowls and special pitchers. This can also be a great place to store linens.
Sideboards are also an ideal canvas for holiday decorating. Mount a shelf in similar length above the sideboard to display holiday decor, decorative plates, flower arrangements and more. Hang a wreath above the shelf for additional vertical visual interest.
The role of the sideboard is to hold food while serving and store dishes when they’re not in use. The sideboard pictured here is an ideal dining-room sideboard because it includes a large surface top and ample storage below in the form of drawers and cabinets, holding the workhorses of memorable meals.
With the holiday season upon us, it’s the perfect time to add to your dining set with this stylish, rustic shutter sideboard. Find this and other holiday essentials on our showroom floor, located at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City. We’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
You can’t put a price tag on good health and relaxation. For many, massages are a necessary part of life; whether the goal is relaxation, recovery from workouts, or relief from disease-related pain. Going to the spa is expensive and time-consuming.
But having your own personal masseuse in the form of a massage chair might do the trick!
It’s around this time of year—after the excitement of the State Fair—that many of our customers come to see us and take special notice of our luxury home massage chairs. If you had a chance to visit the fair and spared a moment to sit in one of the many massage chairs on display, you’ll remember how remarkable the experience was.
Although it’s difficult to describe the feeling massage chairs give you without experiencing it firsthand, many users comment that they feel hugged all over. Most massage chairs enable users to:
- Fall asleep
- Feel energized
- Experience relief from sore muscles and joints
As winter peeks its head around the corner, the massage chair’s warming function could provide soothing relief for cold joints and muscles. It also makes a great Christmas gift!
One of the best features of our massage chairs is the price. If you considered purchasing a massage chair at the fair for $5,000 or more, you’ll be shocked at our incredibly low prices.
Come see our selection of massage chairs on our showroom floor, located at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City. We’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.

Any house can hold a family, but it takes something more to make a house a home. Rustic furniture from World Rustic Imports can help you build a cozy place that captures the hearts of anyone who enters your home. Here are some ways you can use rustic furniture pieces to create that homey feel.
A kitchen as inviting as Mom’s can be created with a rustic table and chairs. A small farmhouse table is ideal for smaller spaces and creates a cozy feeling instead of making a smaller kitchen feel boxed in.
Modern living rooms tend to lack the charm of a western lodge. Rustic chairs and couches bring back the charm while tying the room together. These pieces are perfect additions to a room adorned with stags, an inviting fireplace, and plush rugs.
While office spaces are usually segregated from the rest of the house, there’s no reason to leave out the rustic decor that makes for a comfortable, homey feel. Desks and chairs that hark back to a simpler time can keep that positive energy flowing right into the work space.
After a long day, you should feel comfortable in your bedroom. Traditional bedroom furniture pieces that have a warm, welcoming feel complete the transformation of a house that could be anybody’s into a home that belongs to a couple with a unique personality.
Every room in your house could benefit from rustic furniture! Our showroom floor is filled with furniture that can turn your house into your home.

Many analysts report that the average household in the USA now has three televisions, and that number is only expected to grow. Some attribute the growth to new technology. Others point to dropping prices as advanced technologies move into the mainstream.
Either way, there are bound to be thousands of new televisions in households this year and families everywhere are looking for the best way to display that new treasure.
One of the smartest things you can do to protect a new television is to display it beautifully in a pop up TV lift cabinet. Not only is it the best way to share your new TV with others in your home at the push of a button, it’s safer than many wall-mounted options that could endanger children and pets if they fail. Pop up TV lifts come standard with a remote control, allowing you to hide and reveal your television on your terms, keeping it out-of-reach from sticky fingers.
Missing out on a restful night’s sleep? Most people enjoy having a television in their bedrooms, but many electronics have lights that glow, making it nearly impossible to sleep in complete darkness. Allow your bedroom to be a sanctuary again with a pop up TV lift cabinet. Not only is it functional, but when you’re not watching your flat screen television, everything disappears into the unit.
Pop up TV lifts can add great impact with very little effort, and minimal investment. Making your décor work harder is a smart way to add square footage and impact to your rooms. It’s an affordable investment that’s smart and beautiful.
Come see our selection on our showroom floor at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City, Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm. Your family can enjoy all the beauty of the cabinet and the functionality of a pop up TV lift cabinet to protect your flat screen television.
Wrap your bedroom with the warmth of natural aspen elegance! Old cull wood is transformed into a thing of beauty in this 12 Drawer Gnarly Aspen Dresser.
“Gnarly” wood offers a truly unique work of art. Gnarly wood is made from aspen logs that have been harvested from dead-standing aspen trees.
These aspen logs have been bent and gnarled from the weight of heavy Rocky Mountain snows and are hand-picked for features such as burls, knots, beetle tracks and Elk rubs. Bull Elk markings are created when the elk rub their antlers against trees; creating scars that add beautiful character to the furniture.
Furniture and accessories that incorporate the natural edge of wood—its burrs, knots, and other marks of character—are classified as Live Edge. This style was first made famous by George Nakashima in a series he created in 1946, and has grown in popularity because of its natural, one-of-a-kind design and sustainability factors.
The 12 Drawer Gnarly Aspen Dresser features solid aspen materials for all the logs and paneling. The aspen logs are hand-peeled to preserve the natural character and to leave some of the inner bark on the logs, enhancing the wood’s natural color.
The piece is finished with three different coats of varnish. The first coat is an undercoat that enhances the aspen colors and make the reds, greys, blues, and knots more vibrant. The last two coats of Sherwin-Williams Conversion Varnish provide a harder, more water-resistant chemical finish than typical lacquers and varnishes do.
If you’re looking for another level of rustic character for your home, this 12 Drawer Gnarly Aspen Dresser may be the ticket. Visit our showroom at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City, Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
Enjoy this rustically beautiful dresser at your log cabin, rustic lodge, lakeside home, or even your country cottage!
Spring is here! The cherry and Bradford pear trees are blooming beautifully, and folks are flocking out to their patios, front porches, and decks to spruce up for the season. The farmers markets are swarming with eager gardeners selling the fruits of their labor.
For many, spring means time spent outdoors enjoy the company of friends and family. It could even mean socializing around your home bar and enjoying a drink with those closest to you.
But choosing the right bar for your home can be a difficult decision. It has to have the perfect blend of form and function, while also matching your existing décor. Luckily, World Rustic Imports offers a bar top with custom colors. Made from metal, this bar top can be oxidized to match a certain color scheme or desired effect.
As metal ages, it forms a patina or film on the surface which is produced by oxidation. This process occurs over a long period of exposure to the atmosphere. The color produced typically depends on the location. For example, an area with a dry climate will produce a different patina than coastal or marine locations.
The natural patina process can take many years to achieve. But we’ve developed a technique that mimics the natural aging process of time, thereby producing spectacular aged metal sheets that are extremely durable.
Visit our showroom to see this popular bar and discuss oxidation options with one of our experienced specialists. Come see us at at 3935 West Reno in Oklahoma City, Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
