Last month I took a trip to Manhattan to meet with leaders in the world of home decor and interior design. We talked about the fact that the past several years have been dominated by modern, contemporary decor with lots of metal, glass, upholstery and synthetics. Very little wood. But in 2014 the pendulum is swinging back to home decor that is much more connected to our natural world. Check out Architectural Digest’s latest interiors page and you’ll find the richness of handmade wood furniture, flooring and accessories throughout.
In 2014, interior designers and homeowners are looking to be refreshed by the authenticity and organic nature of real wood in their home decor. Reclaimed wood and metal are perhaps the most popular combination for furniture styles we’ve seen this year. The beautiful occasional tables above (handcrafted by Dan Mosheim and his sons) are a great example.
Here’s another example of handmade wooden furniture that’s trending up this Spring. It’s Copeland’s new Kyoto Dining Furniture Collection– proving that modern and wood are not an oxymoron when it comes to furniture!
Need more inspiration on how to refresh your home with the beauty of handmade wooden furniture this Spring? Visit the Architectural Digest annual Home Show in Manhattan, March 20-23.
