About SDR

What We Do

Our passion for rustic furniture led us to develop the concept of bringing the finest rustic furniture to our San Diego furniture store. The idea caught on with San Diego and eventually our small rustic furniture store became a furniture warehouse with over 20,000 square feet of wood furniture on display.

Our rustic furniture is designed to fit into the California lifestyle and compliment your home decor. We specialize in a range of furniture categories. We’ve traveled far and wide to build personal relationships with artisans in different countries including India, China, Indonesia, Africa, and Mexico. We also created our own factory in India that manufactures all our custom furniture with the greatest care.

Buying direct allows us to bypass the middle man and give you the best rustic furniture value on the market.  There’s an environmental theme to what we do. Many of our beautiful pieces are made using recycled wood from old doors, old shutters, moldings from old homes, rail road ties, antique teak and old furniture pieces. So buying our recycled products leads to reuse that preserves the natural world.  Beyond price, value and selection we care deeply about the welfare of our customers and are always looking for ways to go the extra mile to ensure your complete satisfaction.

We offer custom furniture design solutions and our sales team is knowledgeable about how to choose the right furniture to meet your design goals.   It all adds up to one answer to your rustic furniture needs in San Diego and California. So drop by soon for a look at our selection, chat with us about building some custom furniture, or call anytime with questions. Have our in-house designer meet with you for a free in-home consultation. We welcome you to the San Diego Rustic Furniture family and look forward to helping you meet your dreams. We receive 40 foot shipping container loads of merchandise almost weekly in San Diego.
