Plywood furniture is nothing new, made popular in the 1950s with design icons like Charles and Ray Eames. The material that was once thought too cheap to be on show is now making its biggest mark on interiors being used on everything from furniture to kitchen cupboards to wall coverings.

The amazing nature of plywood means it can bend and create beautiful shapes, and this is particularly evident in pendant lights. If you are looking for a statement light this coming season, make sure its made of plywood.

Another great way to make a statement is to use plywood where you may not expect. Make cupboard doors in a kitchen or panel a wall in a living room. Let the finish be raw and obvious, no need to cover up with paint.

If you fancy a more subtle approach to plywood try adding in some dining chairs or perhaps a side table or stool. These pieces of furniture can add interest to a room and blend with other trends, like mid-century, monochrome and Scandinavian. You really need to appreciate the design of the pieces you choose, so a less cluttered room is probably best.

If you are looking for inspiration than we recommend a visit to the V&A Museum and their current exhibition Plywood: Material of the Modern World.

The kitchen is a great place to introduce black as there are so many surfaces to play with as well as including electricals, tableware and cutlery. Of course mix with white for a more monochrome feel or combine with dark wood, copper or brass additions.

If you are daring enough, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t be go full on black throughout a room. This especially works well in a bedroom, where most of the time you spend in there is in the dark anyway. Going dark creates a cosy space and doesn’t always – as a lot of people expect -make a room feel smaller.
