Get Naked: The Unfinished Wood Trend

Updated 07/27/18

Unfinished wood isn’t just for tree houses anymore. The unrefined material is making its way into modern interiors by way of cabinetry, ceilings, walls, and furniture. The raw wood adds a cool factor to any space, and allows for more colorful or streamlined items to stand out. Master the trend in your own home by following the likes of a Melbourne home clad in plywood, photographed by Eve Wilson for The Design Files, or shopping modern products like Geof Ramsay’s Steps. You will soon discover that baring it all is the best thing to do.
