Country Furniture for Your Porch

Old-Fashioned Easy Living

Country 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 Country

Country 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.

The classic porch rocking chair is a most essential piece. A country porch just isn't the same with one rocking chair. Perhaps you want several of them for friends and family that visit.

Pennsylvania Dutch Country Furniture

Plain 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.


Elegant in simplicity, functionality and durability, Shaker furniture is great for the front porch.
