Obsessing over: Burled Wood
I recently bought an amazing burled wood and lucite credenza (see picture below) to use as a media storage unit in my own home. Burled wood (a type of wood that actually develops from deformities in the tree) is a unique and highly figured wood that's prized for it's beauty and rarity. One of the reasons I am completely obsessed with burled wood is the visual texture and warmth it's able to give a room. Even if it's a brand new piece like mine is, something about it gives off a vintage feel. Mixing pieces like this into a modern interior helps to create a more eclectic and collected look. Especially because we never want our homes looking like they are straight out of the page of a catalogue, I cannot stress enough the importance in mixing a variety of styles in a space to make it feel distinctive and curated. Take a look at some pictures I have collected in my infatuation with burled wood, and see how it can add dimension to any space!
