Exquisite outdoor spaces featuring wood as a primary material

Wood is an extremely versatile and popular material, one of the most wonderful gifts from our planet. We use it to make furniture, tools, kitchen utensils, even accessories, decorations and writing utensils. There’s no domain where wood hasn’t become an important element. But when it’s used outdoors, wood becomes an even more natural and exquisite part of the décor. It allows you to create a very strong connection with the landscape and the surrounding world.

Wooden verandas, terraces and decks are very beautiful, regardless of the location. They have a particularly beautiful appearance and feel inviting and welcoming. That’s also because of the wood’s natural characteristics. It’s a material that adds texture and warmth to any space and gives it great character. Another wonderful detail about this material is the fact that it ages beautifully and it gains even more unique qualities with time.We’ve selected a series of modern and contemporary décor featuring wood as a main material. Here are the examples:

It’s why it’s such a versatile material. A distressed piece of wood can have a lovely vintage and rustic feel while clean, simple wood is wonderful for modern and contemporary decors. Today we’re only going to focus on a series of outdoor spaces such as decks, terraces, verandas and patios.
