Country Furniture for Your Porch
Old-Fashioned Easy LivingCountry furniture makes the perfect front porch!
Nothing quite as inviting as country style furniture on a wonderful front porch like the picture you see here. Dave and I are kind of partial to this style of living.
If country style furniture makes you think of knotty pine and table legs made from branches you'll be surprised to know that country extends from the simple to very sophisticated in design.

Many Styles of CountryCountry style furniture comes in many styles - so here are some of the most popular - just to get your creative juices flowing.
We don't recommend you put fine antiques on your porch but you can find replicas that would be ideal to create a warm country look. And remember, don't forget timeless porch rocking chairs and an iconic porch swings.
French ProvincialFrench Provincial is characterized by flowing designs and carvings and sometimes mixed with wrought iron. Ash, walnut, fruit woods, and chestnut are the preferred woods.
But French Country doesn't necessarily mean pieces are all wood. The chair at right is a typical French Provincial piece that is hand forged wrought iron. (Photo FrenchHeritage.com
English CountryThese pieces are functional rather than ornate and are made from oak, ash, and elm along with walnut and mahogany. Like French country, English country is also available in metals. (Photos: englishgardenfurniture.com and andrewcrace.com)
American CountryMost know this type furniture really well. Made primarily from oak, pine, fir, and maple, these pieces were meant to be on a porch.
You can use various types of country furniture pieces on your porch like this curb appealing planter below.

Pennsylvania Dutch Country FurniturePlain but built to last, decorations might be called a "partial" folk-art. The lily, the heart, the tulip, and the turtle-dove are among the early Pennsylvania Dutch decorations. They express the hopes and joys of a deeply religious people.
ShakerElegant in simplicity, functionality and durability, Shaker furniture is great for the front porch.
