Given that craftsmen have been harnessing nature’s bounty for thousands of years, it’s perhaps no surprise that we have a deep-rooted affinity for timber. But this isn’t just because it looks good. Solid timber furniture makes us feel good too.
In our homes, timber furniture looks inviting – and it has a deeply calming effect too. Soft and warm to the touch, wood gives us a sense of security and allows us to embrace our age-old connection to the natural world. Interior designers even credit it with increasing creativity and decreasing stress, something we’d all probably welcome in our lives.
