Pinewood is often associated with uninspired, run-of-the-mill furniture and interiors. Yet this versatile timber has many modern applications. Long-lasting and sustainable, there is a certain honest and homey quality about pinewood; still, it offers so much more. The interiors featured below reflect a clean, contemporary expression of pinewood’s use in residential spaces. Aesthetic and striking, they showcase its capacity for good design.
