Just wanted to give our shoppers an update. For this week, we've added Wishlist capabilities to the Rustic Deco online store. To create your wishlist, you don't need to a store account; however, if you want to save your wishlist, you will need to create a store account and sign in. You can also share your wishlist via email and social media. Over the next few weeks, we will be offering special promotions to those that have store accounts.
We’re working to improve the customer experience, and we’ve heard you!
Please continue to provide feedback. Your input is greatly appreciated!
Rustic Deco Management
Happy New Year from Rustic Deco!
It's been almost two months since we launched our new e-commerce website (rusticdeco.com). I've come to realize that even with the massive amounts of learning that we did in the months leading up to the launch, there's still much to learn and lots of work to do. We're still making improvements to the website design and navigation, including our new enhanced search and filter application. Many thanks in all of you that gave input and ideas. Please keep them coming…
We launched the site with just over 250 products back in early November. (For some reason, we thought that was a lot.) Over the past seven weeks, we've been very busy finding and designing more products. As of today, we have over 700 items, and we plan to add another 300 in January. Keep a look out!
In January, we also plan to expand sales channels to include Amazon and 1stDibs. We've also taken to heart the feedback we've received over our policies. From that feedback, expect to see some significant changes to our return's program. The new policy with much more buyer friendly.
As a sneak peek, we will be vastly expanding our DIY product line. If you like to build your own custom dining tables and related furniture, you're going to love the new additions including chairs, hardwood slabs, hairpin legs, and many more iron and steel table bases. Stay tuned!
Happy New Year!
Rustic Deco wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
No faux here! Take a look at our new collection of large genuine Brazilian cowhide accent pillows (20" square and lumbar at 12x20"). We’ve also added beautiful round and square cowhide ottomans plus a good selection of patchwork 18" cowhide cubes. These cubes work great as seats or foot stools! We also have a wide variety of Brazilian cowhide rugs in 6x8' and 7x9'. Our cowhide items can be found by clicking on our "The Cabin" link or under "Western" in our style’s menu.

We’ve also added three Featured Categories: The Urban Loft, The Man Cave, and The Cabin. Each of these categories aligns with special interests and caters to shoppers that want refined browsing.
Additionally, Rustic Deco has added some great new products to be included in The Man Cave. These items are of superior quality and just plain COOL! If you like solid brass decorations and steampunk, we’ve got them. Take a look! As for The Cabin, I can’t rave enough about the great new hand-crafted barrel art. These barrel furnishings are made from reclaimed – re-purposed – wine barrels from France. These items add a great country feel. As always, don’t be afraid to innovate and create your own decorating style… HAPPY shopping!
