The winter solstice was just a few days ago, so it’s officially time to break out the heavy jackets and boots—unless you’ve decamped to a more temperate vacation home for the season. Regardless, one of the best ways to add warmth to a space is via wood furnishings, which, if implemented correctly, bring a bit of nature into the home. This year, more people are interested in this sort of biophilic design than ever as we’ve spent more and more time indoors. The trend now is toward deep, warmer woods like walnut and oak, which add depth to a space and make it feel more lived-in and effortless.
Those interested in getting in on the trend are in luck, as virtually every major design brand is jumping on board with new launches this season. Master woodworkers Carl Hansen & Søn reissue a classic chair that features this sort of timber, and Natuzzi pairs its take on the look with metallic accents for the Kendo low table. Here, these and a few other of our favorites to snap up this winter.
