Rustic describes a specific aesthetic for cabinet hardware, which is weathered and old-timey. Some rustic pieces are more simple, while others feature motifs and old fashioned designs. Think old fashioned farm house, cabin or country cottage when you hear the "rustic" style. Rustic finishes include natural pewter, oil rubbed bronze and antique copper. There are many different designs, from the rough and natural shapes, to the rounded or geometric.
