Looking to freshen up your living space? When it comes to setting the theme for your home, there are various things to consider – especially when trying to add contemporary elements into the mix. While you’ll consider various furniture pieces, your cabinetry will be one of the most significant elements. As Nordic Design Furniture are specialists in hardwood timbers, we can incorporate any style you desire…
Modern meets classic… The perfect balance
With whites and blacks being on-trend at the moment, we’re having some fun experimenting with different combinations. While the design is key, we never lose sight of the most important thing – being quality! In a world of mass produced products, we understand how special it is to maintain natural, unique items with quality in mind. With this being said, we’ve been able to incorporate natural and modern elements to bring some stunning pieces to life… So why not take a look?
The furnishings you select will make all the difference in creating the ambience for your home. The main ingredient to contemporary living is keeping things fresh and minimalistic (which is why whites and blacks – have become so popular). Of course, you don’t want to eliminate the warmth from your home entirely, so your furniture gives you the opportunity to add some depth and warmth back into your space.
The importance of natural timbers
At Nordic Design Furniture, we appreciate the beauty of natural hardwoods and are proud to showcase the quality of the timbers we use. With their unique detail in every grain and earthy colours, each item is entirely unique. This is one of the reasons we try not to completely remove the presence of timber.
We’ve had some stunning cabinetry combinations enter our showroom in the past week and we can’t get enough! Take a look at this striking entertainment unit for example – low to the ground with slim lines, while grand in length. The addition of white to this blackwood piece introduces a contemporary presence and softens the timber. With this combination, an entertainment unit such as this one can be seen in a number of settings. Why not customise a similar design for your home?
Custom designs such as this serve multiple purposes. Firstly, if you have a modern home with flush cupboards and high gloss finishes, you might like introducing a piece like this to add some depth and interest to your space. The combination of timber and white creates the perfect balance between modern and classic. By opting for a combination piece like this, it also allows more flexibility when updating your style or moving home, with more ways to use it!
Alternatively, you may have a house that’s overwhelmed with existing timber pieces and is starting to feel a little heavy.. By replacing one or two items with pieces like this it can help to brighten your home. Plus with the natural grains from the timber, you won’t lose that traditional feeling at the same time!
Work with your style of home first…
Although having “all white” can feel clean and fresh, it can also become very stagnant. By incorporating some hardwood timbers, you’ll create warmth… Inviting rich natural tones to liven up your space! The details in the grain also add dimension. And best of all, the rich tones in the timber will make surrounding whites pop even more – so you won’t lose that contemporary feel!
Of course, black has become the new “white” more recently… With a sleek and slightly industrial feel, the combination of black against timber is also quite modern and minimalistic. Giving a darker take on contemporary living, we’re also loving this trend… And as we custom design and build everything in our Adelaide factory, you can mix and match whatever designs you desire!
So what do you prefer? It may be difficult to say on a computer screen… So why not visit our showroom to see the quality and variety up close? Each week we see new styles come through our showroom, meaning we’re constantly inspired with new ideas. So make sure you come in and have a look!
