As I’ve written in the past, reclaimed woods have been very popular for several years. These are woods that have been recycled or look like they’ve been recycled. They have a rustic look and are silvery grey in color. At the Las Vegas Home Furnishings Market I’ve seen lots of reclaimed woods over the past few years. At the most recent market a few weeks ago it was nice to see darker woods making a comeback. Not that they’re replacing the reclaimed woods. But it’s a nice change, and they have a richness that I’ve missed. Medium tones also continue to be popular. It’s nice to see this variety. Back in the 80′s whitewashed woods were so popular, but they also looked very dated when darker finishes started gaining popularity. It’s great that a variety of wood finishes are popular now, so you can choose what you like knowing that your furniture won’t look dated in a few years.
This beautiful upholstered bed is striking with the contrast of the darker wood finish and the light-colored fabric. Nailheads complete the look.
This dining table is rich and beautiful with its cocoa finish. I love the contrast with the light-colored dining chairs.
Please let me know how you like the new darker finishes.
Until next time,
