Woods That Wow! Part I

Woods That Wow! Part I

It appears as though the world of furniture design is following the motto of the interior design world with, 'anything is possible' and 'the options are limitless'! It is an exciting time to watch the burst of creativity from designers wanting to create something one of a kind, unique and custom! While processes like inlay and painted furniture have been around for centuries, we just love seeing furniture taken to the next level with the help of modern techniques and talented, creative designers.

In a three part series, we will give you a brilliant sampling of the world of wooden furniture as it has been evolving!

Painted furniture can go from French country to chic to whimsical! We love this charming blue table with polka dots!


(Jonathan Charles, High Point Market)

This lovely chest is customizable so our interior designers can choose different wood stains and different colors for the painted Greek key for your home!


(Sherill Furniture, High Point Market)

This divine dresser adds lively color and it is like having another piece of art in the room!


(Guild Masters, High Point Market)

These pretty painted nesting tables have a chic, Moroccan vibe!

Inlay can be traced all the way back to the 14th century, but reached maturity during the Renaissance. Modern day inlayed furniture has taken this handcrafted tradition to new levels! This classic Scottish tartan inlaid on the wardrobe, uses different species to weave this eye catching pattern!

This bold, geometric chest is exciting and would provide great pattern in a room!

It is amazing what bands of contrasting wooden inserts do to these furniture pieces! They add a bit of movement and create a framing detail effect that is just perfect!



(Hickory White, High Point Market)

Another technique to create beautiful wooden furniture that has been around forever is hand carving. The element that takes this gorgeous bed into the 21st century is the color of the wood stain. We also love that the headboard is substantial but they designed an upholstered insert for comfort!


(Hooker Furniture, High Point Market)

The large format carving on this table is simply gorgeous and would be a piece you could pass down to future generations.

Stay tuned for next week when we explore more woods that wow!
