Dura Supreme Cabinetry's trend forecasters indicate a growing interior design trend that is embracing textured, character-rich wood species.
The forecasters are seeing a rise in the use of wood species with knots, burls, and grain paired with more contemporary finishes (such as paint, acrylics, foils, and metals). With the enormous popularity of white painted kitchens over the past few years, homeowners are starting to request a little texture and warmth mixed in, according to the company.
"In the past, character-rich woods were commonly associated with woodsy cabins or old rustic farmhouses," explains Karen Wistrom, vice president of sales and marketing for Dura Supreme. "Today, integrating some character-rich wood species into a modern design adds texture and offers some relief from all the white."
Dura Supreme offers an array of character-rich woods to choose from at www.durasupreme.com.
