Pale timbers are subtle and easy to live with, but when it comes to adding luxury and sophistication to a space, nothing beats rich walnut. Darker timbers are enjoying a renaissance right now across Europe, the US and Canada, with designers offering up a plethora of gorgeous furniture designs that are all about showcasing the inherent beauty of the timber’s natural swirls, knots and grains.
It’s a distinctive nod to 70s styling, but with a contemporary twist – think a moody, retro colour palette with modern, pared-back lines that bring the look right up-to-date. Take your pick from dining tables, chairs, coffee tables, bookcases, consoles and bedside tables in shades of black and deep chocolate brown, which can be used on their own alongside pale furnishings to create an instant focal point within a room, or combined with timber floors and lighter timber pieces in tonal shades to create a rich, multi-layered feel.
Walnut and other dark finishes also work beautifully paired with this season’s hottest soft furnishing shades – pale blush pink, inky blue, teal and charcoal. For an on-trend look, consider placing a walnut coffee table on a fashionable overdyed rug in navy or a pretty pastel; popping a patterned teal cushion or silvery grey throw on a walnut-framed armchair; or jazzing up a rich timber side table with a collection of eye-catching glassware in myriad shades of blue.
To add even more drama to the dark timber look, introduce a few pops of metallics, such as a hanging pendant or dramatic standard lamp in antiqued bronze; a brass side table; or some gorgeous accessories in copper or rose gold.
If it’s a look that gets your pulse racing, the first step is to choose the perfect walnut piece. Start right here by checking out our sleek, stunning Conan round dining table; low-slung Myron Frederik Rectangular coffee table; and Tricia dining chairs in Walnut and Barley – all ideal for adding a little spice and sophistication to your interiors.
With its clean lines, crisp colour palette and focus on warm timbers, the Scandinavian look is one of our favourites. And with its simple, laid-back vibe, it’s a perfect match for the relaxed Aussie lifestyle. Here’s how to recreate it in your own home.
Nothing shows off the simple, appealing lines of Scandinavian-inspired furniture and accessories better than a bright white backdrop. It’s also a great way to maximise the sense of space in a room, and will make any interior feel light and airy. So get handy with the paintbrush and look to give your walls, floors and ceiling the all-white treatment.
From pale blonde through to rich walnuts, timber furniture is the star of the show in Scandinavian design. Hardwearing and practical, it’s also a smart choice for busy family homes. Seek out designs with curved shapes, flowing lines and slender, tapered legs. Comfort and ergonomics are also key; chairs and sofas should follow the lines of the body and be easy to get in and out of, while tables and cabinets should have smooth, rounded lines and soft-opening mechanisms. Classic examples of the look include our Tricia dining chairs, which come in a range of appealing finishes, including matte black, white and walnut. Or for sofas, our Ceni two- and three-seater design, with its fine, tapered timber legs and sumptuous upholstery.

Soften the minimalist lines of a Nordic interior with tactile, natural fabrics. Think cotton, linen and leather in neutral shades of grey, oatmeal, caramel and white, which can be used for everything from sofa and armchair upholstery to bedlinen and window treatments. For a bolder look, consider adding classic Nordic stripes and checks.
Bold Colour Accents
No Scandinavian interior is complete without a few carefully chosen look-at-me brights. These bold splashes of colour might take the form of graphic, framed prints hung on the wall, a trio of fabulous, colourful vases on a console table, a funky pendant above the dining table, or a couple of cheery, patterned cushions on the sofa. The trick is not to over-do it; stick to no more than two or three shades, and use them sparingly to achieve maximum impact with minimum clutter.
