This rustic lamp will be a cool addition to your bedroom or living room. Personally, I love how the lamp is both rustic and chic at the same time.

The color of the wood is a good contrast to the colors of midnight blue and white.

Add the beauty of simplicity with this rustic sofa table. If you look closely, you'd see there are two colors on the table's legs.
