American Colonial Interior Design: Discover Rustic & Traditional Décor

American Colonial interior design draws on a lot of rustic and traditional aesthetics from the early American frontier. In this style, you can explore muted colors and hues as well as subdued accents and accessories. There’s a heavy emphasis on warm woods — like hickory, elm, maple, and cherry — that are interspersed with antique bronze and patina covered brass. If you’re ready to introduce American Colonial furniture into your home, explore some of LuxeDecor’s favorite rustic brands here.


Jonathan Charles

While Jonathan Charles is originally a brand that once specialized in antique English furniture styles, the founder has been inspired by other furniture styles that he has encountered during his travels. Recently added to their inventory are collections like Country Farmhouse, Casually Country, and Tribeca that really celebrate the marriage between wood pieces and metal accents from American Colonial interior design.

Because Jonathan Charles is such a prolific company, they have décor and accessories that are appropriate for every room in your home. From living room sofas and office desks to bedroom armoires and dining room buffets, you can find it all in their inventory.


Colonial Mills

Steeped in American culture and history, Colonial Mills was founded in 1978 just a stone's throw from the birthplace of America’s textile industry. Their home accessories collection includes iconic American Colonial interior design to complement any rustic colonial furniture and lighting that you choose for your home.

Quaint and charming are the words that come to mind as you explore their collection of area rugs, pillows, hampers, and baskets. Their distinct braiding process is what makes their accessories so unique and ensures the rustic, hand-made look of colonial living pieces.


Hooker Furniture

While Hooker Furniture aims to strike the perfect balance between sophisticated and functional furniture, many of their collections recall a more old world, country aesthetic. From the American Life collection, which is a true celebration of natural wood, to the Rhapsody collection, which explores the decorative details of American Colonial interior design, they are masters at breathing new life into this traditional style. Some of Hooker Furniture’s other rustic collections include Brookhaven, Urban Farmhouse, and Vintage West.

Tommy Bahama

Most wouldn’t expect a brand that focuses on island living to know anything about American Colonial interior design, but Tommy Bahama furniture has a heavy focus on rustic wood pieces that fit neatly into the American Colonial aesthetic. If you want to infuse your home with the breeziness of the island lifestyle, but maintain the homely feel of colonial living, Tommy Bahama offers a unique blend that you won’t find anywhere else.

Find what you’re looking for in collections like Island Traditions, Landara, and Island Estate. These collections maintain subdued colors and intricate details, but instead of flowery prints and lacy patterns, you get palm frond embellishments and wood that looks woven.


Framburg Lighting

For over 110 years, Framburg Lighting has been at the forefront of the lighting industry. With designs that evolve with the times, Framburg Lighting has been able to keep up with modern demands as well as ensure a legacy that celebrates the rustic American Colonial interior design style. Some of their most popular pieces include antiqued metals that bring to life the essence of frontier life.

While many of their collections feature simplistic outdoor sconces, they also have some of the more intricate chandeliers that mimic the black iron and scrollwork pieces that were installed in private lodges and clubs. If you’re looking for a statement American colonial chandelier, find it in the Contessa and Czarina collections, or discover your new outdoor lighting in collections like Hartford, Carcassonne, and Magnolia.



A massive company with thousands of collections, Uttermost strives to explore nearly every style and every material. While you may worry that this skews their focus, the investigation into so many different techniques and designs creates unique pieces that showcase a number of overlapping trends.

An incredibly conscious effort on their behalf is the interest in reclaimed wood that can be repurposed into rustic style furniture. This is a revolutionary tactic for such a large company that is in line with many tenets of colonial living, and speaks to the traditional approach of using the remnants of what you already have to create something new.

Some of our favorite pieces that exhibit this trend include the tables in the Spiro collection, the wall art from the Bahati collection, the table accessories in the Acela collection, and the end tables of the Avner collection. Each of these is definitely an eclectic choice that serves to enhance the American Colonial interior design elements you already have in your home.


Elk Lighting

Just the name Elk Lighting brings to mind a brand that should be very familiar with rustic design — and they definitely deliver. Antique bronze and cast iron pieces are just a few of the elements they specialize in. Whether you’re looking for pendant lights, chandeliers, or outdoor lighting, you can explore a series of collections that all seem to interweave American Colonial interior design with other rustic themes like French country cottage and Bohemian inspired looks. Their collections often feature actual antlers, faux flickering candles, and nature inspired engraving.
