home: trend [ natural finishes ]

A big trend we are seeing this year and in particular this Summer, is natural finishes.

This stripped back look can be seen on tables, chairs, lighting & mirrors. Of course you probably don’t want to deck out your whole room in eveything pale wood, but just a few of these pieces will mix well together.

If you like a neutral colour pallete or earthy tones are your thing, this is where you can have the most fun. In a dining room a natural finished wooden dining table and chairs can look amazing against a dark green wall or black kitchen cabinets.

In a living room a wooden lampshade can be a lovely addition. The light is often softened and it will certainly be a focal point.

If you choose items that are also untreated then you have the option of painting them at a later date. There are so many great colour choices available.

A beautiful addition to any room for storage, we love this new piece in the IKEA Stockholm collection. This natural ash and rattan airy, scandi style cupboard is a light modern cupboard suitable for linen, crockery, books or even toys. Things will be partially screened to keep tidy but the cabinet still remains fresh and with a modern feel for a room. 

Stockholm pieces are limited edition so they’re not around forever.
