Use Native Drums As Rustic Tables To Enhance Southwest Home Decorating

Mar 28, 2008
Do you love rustic furniture and decor? Native drums used as rustic tables are the best and most inexpensive way to incorporate real southwest design and enhance Indian style in your home. Along with using Indian drums as musical instruments in drumming groups and circles, you can use them to add unique, rustic style to any environment.

I recently redecorated my home, adding one of a kind pieces of log furniture to give it a true southwestern look, and found that including a Native American drum coffee table and drum end table together with other western style accessories, worked very well as accent pieces to my log furnishings.

Maybe you are like me and really like Indian style floor drums and log drums to use as rustic tables in home decor and southwestern decorating. Indian floor drums are definitely a very real representation of Indian customs and are widely-used by many Native American tribes for singing, dancing, spirituality and healing ceremonies. Indian drums for many years, have always played a very important part during the Native ceremony, such as the powwow, and have helped form the ideology of religious beliefs and spirituality for many Native tribes.

When you start studying the fascinating history of Native drums, you will understand just how meaningful they are to the Native Indian people. For many generations, tribal leaders have used the drum beat as a way to get in touch with the Great Spirit and with the Spirit world.

Native Americans think of their drums as sacred and show great respect for the living spirit they believe inhabits each drum. The Spirit of the drum is believed to speak to the drummer and exemplifies not only life, but also Mother Nature.

Today, many interior decorators are bringing these unique Native drums into their homes to be used as western style furniture such as rustic tables, coffee tables and end tables. There is something very inviting about adding an interesting piece of furniture such as a drum table to your southwest home decor, to embellish Native American style in your home.

You will appreciate decorating with rustic tables because of the uniqueness they add to their environment. Each drum comes from a rich historical heritage that literally enriches the environment where it is placed. Something you will enjoy most about adding a decorative table drum along with your rustic wood furniture is that it is a very appropriate icon of Indigenous culture.

If you enjoy western style decor, you can easily find decorative drums to use as coffee tables, floor drums and rustic tables, online and in stores that sell western and American Indian home decorating items. No matter which way you choose to use them, it is easy to find rustic style drums that will add an authentic old west feel to your home decor.

If you are drawn to the interesting culture of the Native Americans and want to enrich the southwest style furnishings in your log home or cabin, you will no doubt enjoy decorating with Native drums as rustic tables.
