Natural AttractionJune, 2012
The warmth and classic character of wood makes it a strong draw for today’s interiors.
THE MOST SUCCESSFUL DECORATING HAPPENS, well, organically. Nowhere is this better illustrated than with the mixing of different woods and other naturally inspired materials. Grouped together, an eclectic mix of finishes brings out the tonal qualities of each item for a timeless, sophisticated effect. Juxtapose the soft patina of wood with the stunning shine of stone, like the sideboard topped with Cambria’s Aberdeen™ (shown), to create a functional conversation piece. It all goes together. Why not? It’s only natural.
