4. Dark wood After years of pale wood and ‘Scandi-style’ interiors, dark timbers are making a comeback. This season, expect to see bolder, deeper timbers coming through in furniture and finishes, all of which add real depth to a room. Think dark oak, mahogany and textured walnut used on pieces such as buffets, consoles and dining tables. To add a luxe feel to the dark-timber look, choose pieces with a brass-leg detailing or marble tops. Just be sure to repeat this gesture elsewhere in the room to make it look intentional, perhaps with brass or marble accessories on a tabletop or mantelpiece.
Solid timber Solid timber is made from solid hardwood planks. If it is thick enough, it can be used as a structural floor, while thinner overlay timber flooring is installed over a structural subfloor. All solid timber flooring is fixed to the subfloor and most is sanded and coated on site.
Don’t overcrowd your tableTable manufacturers should recommend the number of people who can comfortably sit around a table without touching elbows while eating. Each person needs about 60 centimetres of eating space. Of course, if your table allows for it, you might be able to squeeze in another chair or two for those occasional larger gatherings.
The dining space has been ‘punched out’ from the rest of the house structure to capture the northern light. This also serves to capture the city views from the dining space.
