Dark Wood – 2018 Interior Trends

Dark wood is one of the interior design trends for 2018. This year is an exciting moment for new decor trends and a great opportunity to update your home with a range of glamorous dark woods.

Dark wood, such as walnut, is frequently employed in kitchens, exuding a sense of luxury and rich colour to the space. But when it comes to furniture, we sometimes shy away from the darker tones. Maybe its because it looks too traditional and outdated but dark wood furniture deserve a rethink.

We live in a visually stimulated era. In the home, this digital overload is inspiring a trend for “raw” materials. Raw in this context describe materials that are irregular and rough, handworked and weathered, rather than highly finished.

This way of presenting wood in its most natural form as trend isn’t casual. A healthy and sustainable lifestyle is what the Human Nature trend is after.

Wood is a great material to use in you home decor because it offers greater advantages when it comes to its maintenance and durability. Combined with spectacular lighting, wood creates spacious, warm, and comfortable rooms.
