The story of Rustic Trades Furniture started with the same need you may find yourself with as you read this: My wife and I needed a table. We looked everywhere for the big, beautiful table of our dreams. As newlyweds, we moved into our new house in 2007. We were just married and facing a rough time like many Americans then. So, with no furniture we left our television on the floor and turned our attention to finding the perfect dining table.
