Kinds of Primitive Furniture
I’ve been involved with country primitives since the 80’s and over time I’ve recognized a few kinds of primitive furniture. As I search for new shops to add here I try to give a variety depending on your style.
- Colonial which includes period style pieces of furniture, including sofas arm chairs, desks, and china cabinets. You’ll notice the wood furnishing may have worn edges. Worn edges is typical of all primitive furnishings.
- There’s regular primitive that has simple lines, like shaker furniture, but is painted. It sometimes has a crackle finish. You often may find a lot of shelves, bucket benches, bread boxes, and trays. Some, also, have folk art painted scenes on them.
- Another type of prim furniture I’ve seen is much more rustic because barn wood or other old wood is used. The old layers of paint is still present and peaking through. Edges may be more much more worn.
- Lastly, you have farmhouse. While farmhouse furniture is a style all its own, it fits in closely with our primitive styles. Your difference is in the colors chosen are lighter and muted. And there is some influence of french and shabby chic in it.
