With all the staying in we've had to do over the last year, we’ve all longed for connections to the outside, so it isn't surprising that many of us are introducing natural elements into our homes. In particular we’ve seen wood take the spotlight, showcased in its natural glory; grains, imperfections, knots and all, beautifully crafted into designs that fulfil our functional needs, whilst keeping us right on trend.
Take the Ekero Side Table by Porada; its bottle-shaped marble base supports a lipped-edge top in canaletto walnut allowing you to bring some earthy tones to your living areas. For a bolder natural statement, then a sideboard gives you plenty of storage, whilst really allowing natural wood to take the focus. The Kanto Sideboard by Porada is a quietly confident design featuring cutaway-handled cupboards, available in several finishes, on a minimal metal base. Continuing the elegance is the sleek Lake Sideboard by Calligaris, a pleasingly oval-shaped design complete with a recessed ceramic top. The cupboard fronts and frame come in a choice of finishes.
If you’re looking for a bolder statement piece, then take a look at the Aurora Sideboard by Pacini Cappellini. This stylish design features a peekaboo grid to one end, mirrors inside, and hinges that wrap around the sides. The design comes in a choice of canaletto walnut veneers, with contrast matt lacquered finishes for the interior.
These are just a few examples of ways you can introduce more natural wood into your space, adding shape and depth, and offering one simple way to feel more connected with the outside.
