At the turn of the 19th Century “rustic” craftsmen introduced new levels of attention to detail and refinement of expression to the style, moving away from the generally crude and rough look that came before it. It was in the Adirondacks that this furniture became incorporated into the decor of Great Camps to heighten the overall rustic ambience. Tables and cabinets were clad with sheets of white birch bark or with elaborate and inventive geometric patterns of twigs or sticks. Beds and chairs were made of peeled or unpeeled spruce or cedar, or white or yellow birch with the bark still attached. Root, trunk, branch, twig, bark, pinecone and leaf were all used singly or in combination to create and adorn this furniture.
