What a beautiful backdrop for this Mountain Laurel Handrail! These deck railing pictures show the forest near the Blue Ridge Parkway in Western North Carolina is the traditional setting for this artform. The curved and sinuous shapes of the rhododendron and mountain laurel trees inspired previous generations efforts to decorate their abodes and set the stage for this work you see here. The trees with yellow leaves in the picture are rhododendron trees in the fall. It’s an evergreen tree but drops old leaves in the fall.
Hewn logs are cut with an adze or axe and have a rough look. This style is somewhere between a milled D-log and a whole round log. It’s a traditional style that pairs nicely with Mountain Laurel Handrails as seen in this porch railing picture. These log home deck railings went to Missouri. The small fans installed on the porch are an interesting break from the staid ceiling fan. The red trim on the deck is mimicked on the top rail which looks like a 1×8. Beginning with design, this house pulled it all together and has the best handrail!
The deck railings chosen for this lake house in Texas were Mountain Laurel Handrails! These railings make a great statement with the craftsman style siding and architecture on this home. The deck balusters are branches in the railing and really set this deck ahead of others on the lake!
This Mountain Laurel Handrail was installed on a log home. This deck is so nicely decorated, it just looks so enjoyable. I love the green ferns and the red and white deck furniture to give some color and contrast to the wood deck and logs on the house. The firepit looks like a great space to enjoy the company of friends on a cool evening with a good sized fire roaring to keep you toasty! There really is no better choice for a log home deck railing.
These rustic bar stools are another custom furniture order. They are made with mountain laurel sticks for the legs and body. The seat is a solid piece of black walnut prepared to a larger dimension than the average stool seat. Take a look at some of the other Mountain Laurel Furniture like a rustic coffee table.
