With so many different woods in our collection, we are often asked about the best way to mix woods in a room. The good news: there’s no wrong answer, because there are lots of great ways to mix and match woods to achieve a modern, intentional look. Here are four design ideas to show you how to combine wood colors in your own home.
Design Idea #1: Mix
If you like an eclectic look, but still want everything to feel cohesive, the trick is to use each wood twice. The result: an interesting, layered look that still feels pulled together.
Design Idea #2: Match
This is an easy one. Matching all of the woods in your room creates a balanced feel and strong visual impact.
Design Idea #3: Mingle
Unique woods like reclaimed timber, spalted sugarberry or live edge slabs of cherry or walnut display a range of color, acting as a bridge between other light and dark woods in your room. With the mingle method, you can pull in different woods and stains that tie back to a “bridge” wood and everything will feel cohesive.
Design Idea #4: Make it up
Trees live happily together in the forest, and they can in your home too. It is absolutely okay to mix different woods and not worry if they match something else in the space. Because we use natural woods and stain colors found in nature, our wood furniture feels authentic and goes together without a lot of effort.
