There’s something whimsical and pleasant about solid wood that no other materials can compete with. The star of the furniture firmament, we swear by this noble material when it comes to making an impact in our living space.
Any interior can benefit from wood’s imposing look. Whatever the style or room of the house, when furnishing it with wooden pieces you will also be infusing it with character and a warm glow. And with such a variety of colours, grain patterns and textures, the possibilities to add that earthy, organic feel to your living space are endless.
While solid wood furniture may feel slightly more of an investment than its engineered peers, it definitely pays off when you and your guests feel at home the second you step into a room. The key is adding one piece at a time, which makes it way more affordable and allows you to reflect on how it feels within the space. Does it clash or blends in beautifully? How does it look alongside your textiles and accessories?
Once you’re happy with that particular piece, don’t be scared of mixing it with other types of wood — mismatched furniture is a trend in itself and what will make the space look interesting and unique. So forget about the rules and let the timeless appeal of wood make your interior shine whatever you’ve chosen.
Wood and its innate elegance are at the heart of our new furniture families, which feature the timeless appeal of the classics, such as Solid Oak, Teak and Mahogany, and the exotic flair of Mango wood, Ash or Acacia. Keep reading and discover how their different woods, finishes and styles could help you create a decor that’s both magazine-worthy and robust enough to stand the test of time.
Take our Juno, for example, a range that needs no ornaments thanks to the natural beauty of the Mindy Ash it’s crafted from. Only lightly brushed to recreate the natural ageing of a veranda, this range will infuse a breeze of spontaneity and summer into your home.
Although sometimes, it is precisely the finish what makes the wood release its natural beauty. Such is the case of the Sadie, defined by its naturally appealing wood grain, which is taken to a whole new level with a glowing finish — choose between Natural or Charcoal. If you’re looking for a statement piece with a lux bohemian feel, look no further than the sophisticated drinks cabinet from the range.
Wood looks naturally beautiful and which one you choose will depend on your personal taste, but if there’s an all-time favourite, that is definitely Oak. Its strength and prominent grain make it a feature in itself and our Finn and Sienna ranges know this well. While the Finn is all about Scandi inspiration, a natural finish and simple design done well, the Sienna adds a hand-painted Mahogany base to make the natural variations and contrasts of the Oak top shine.
Last but not least, at Perch & Parrow we are proud to introduce our first industrial-style range, the Leon. A gorgeous blend of utilitarian materials, such as wood and metal, are beautifully combined to achieve this deeply textural design, which is an inspiration for the senses.
