Wood A Hot Look for Interiors in 2010

It’s no surprise to us that wood was a hot trend this year, especially indoors. We found even more evidence recently, as House Beautiful included wood as one of the top 10 decorating trends of 2010. While House Beautiful proclaims lighter wood finishes are the new look for relaxed, casual interiors, many furniture manufacturers and interior designers got in touch with the darker side of wood this year.

Here on our blog, we talked about how retailers went wild for walnut, which adds a rich warmth to modern furnishings, rich cherry, merlot and reddish wood finishes were popular in bedroom furniture, and exotic hardwoods such as ipe were a hit for decks, pergolas, and other outdoor applications. Meanwhile, consumers fell for faux wood finishes on everything from iPhone cases to sinks, and rustic, reclaimed wood, seen in our post about exposed beams, was also popular with an increasingly eco-conscious public.

Stay tuned as we explore wood trends in 2011, and stop by Schutte Lumber in Kansas City for all your holiday woodworking projects.
