home: trend [ dark woods ]

Wood and wood finishes are always going to be popular in the home, whether you are a fan of oak, walnut, mango or birch. This year we see a big increase in dark woods appearing in stores through furniture, lighting and accessories.

Using dark wood in the home will bring a richness and cosiness that lighter woods don’t do as well. Compliment with rich Blue, Green and Red shades for a truly lux feel.

A room in the house where dark wood are becoming a trend is the kitchen. Brown almost black cabinets combined with lighter tones on worktops and accessories gives a layered and cohesive look.

Using dark wood doesn’t mean the whole room has to go dark, if that’s not your thing. Brilliant white and paler shades will really set off the wood tones of tables, chairs and lighting.

We have picked some of our favourites to start off this look.
