The eco-friendliest trend of 2021

Natural or lacquered, light or dark, country or minimal, Scandinavian or Mediterranean: there is no other material as versatile and flexible as wood, able to characterise every interior and every housing style.

Wood is a living material; its veining tells of centuries-old stories, providing even the most modern house with a cosy, intimate atmosphere. Mankind’s ally since the dawn of time, today it is a multi-functional trend as far as interior design is concerned. Following this trend is a way to recover tradition, being more and more aware of eco-sustainability.

From parquet to boiserie, from pieces of furniture to decorative objects: there is wood for all tastes and for all budgets.

 

 

Precious carvings for mirror frames and frames

Carved wood is a successful choice, regardless of the style you want to use it with: it is coherent in a country chic house, or pleasingly contrasting with a contemporary furnishing. You needn’t have a working fireplace to enjoy the cosy atmosphere once at home.

It is enough to choose an area of your living room and make it precious and important through the use of candles light and of the right frame, like a fireplace shelf. This one, with such a romantic frieze, is perfect to put your most beautiful photos.

 

 

Natural wood and other gifts from the sea

When decorating your house, one morning spent walking along the beach can turn more successful than a tour of the local market. With a heap of shells, pebbles and branches sanded by the sea, you can create something unique, either by combining them together or putting them in key points in your room, as if they were sculptures.

Not very good at DIY? You just need to browse L’Oca Nera’s catalogue to find marine inspiration and decorative objects you can put in a corner of your living room or veranda. The keels of these decorative boats look as if they were made with the wood of an old, adventurous relic emerged from the waves.

 

 

The outdoor indoor

Naturally also after a walk in the wood, you come home with a precious treasure: take branches and flowers to dry for decorating vases or small centerpieces; the nicest things you have found in the wood will become an essential part of your furniture.

Choose pieces of furniture with veining at sight and with a not finished effect, for a continuous dialogue between indoor and outdoor, between house and nature.

 

 

The timeless charm of rattan

There are several types of wood. If the countless dark essences of traditional wood were not enough, you could use twined pieces of furniture, like the ones made of bamboo. Armchairs, poufs, bookcases and lamps reinterpret the colonial style, for an ethno chic flat.

Looking for inspiration for an original nursery? Rattan or wicker cradle and changing table have the unquestionable charm of a yesteryear house, with soft and embracing lines suitable to a brand new story.
