Interiors are getting a wooden makeover this autumn, embrace the Scandinavian look with our favourite pieces

Now there are more innovative ways to decorate your home with timber and wood-inspired surfaces than ever before. Think wall and floor coverings inspired by natural wood grains and luxury hand-carved solid wood furniture. These designs celebrate the knots and imperfections that show the passage of time and the tactility of wood.

Bedroom

1.

Savoir solid rosewood bed
Imagine sleeping in a solid rosewood bed that took 520 hours to craft, on the ultimate mattress that took Savoir specialists a further 120 hours to create. The result? The best night’s sleep ever! £85,225

2.

Fort Street Studio‘s timber rug
Advances in the dyeing process means that silk can now be hand-knotted with such precision that this timber ‘cross-section’ rug from Fort Street Studio not only looks like wood, felled from a tree, but has the three-dimensional texture too. £20,120

 3.

Bloomingville‘s wood veneer pendant
A simple wood veneer light pendant can bring a touch of the outdoors inside. £129 

4.

Calvers + Sudval clock
In pale Nordic wood, this clock is a must-have for timber fans. £14

5.

Elisa Strozyck‘s wood blanket
Ever considered a wooden blanket? Elisa Strozyck’s fabrics, constructed from wood and wool, innovatively manipulate the material to create something unexpected, and deceptively cosy too. £1,300

6.

Brintons ‘woodgrain’ carpets
Brintons has teamed up with pattern provocateurs, Timorous Beasties, to create ‘Grain du Bois’, a collection of ‘woodgrain’ carpets as a plush wool alternative to stripwood flooring. £95 per sq/m

7.

FAO wood effect wallpaper
‘All the Fruits’ wood effect wallpaper is unique in that it illustrates the wood grain, rather than mimicking it. £125 per roll

8.

Roche Bobois wood console
The ‘Moved console’ by Sandra Demuth for Roche Bobois combines a solid oak base with drawers in white lacquered wood. £950

Kitchen

1. 

Devol‘s Sebastian Cox kitchen
Young British woodworker Sebastian Cox has brought his inimitable touch to the kitchen with a design for Devol made entirely from sustainable beech and ash. From £11,000

2. 

House Doctor‘s chopping boards
Keep chopping boards by House Doctor propped up on the kitchen surface. They are a great functional way to display a touch of wood. From around £27.31

3.

Interior Supply‘s wallpaper
Pick up on the wood theme with a wallpaper backdrop for a cosy dining experience. ‘Gradient’ by Christian Benini for Wall & Decò. £80 per sq/m

4.

Future and Found‘s wood tumblers
Either use turned wood tumblers from Future & Found decoratively or as traditional drinking vessels. £12

5.

Lema‘s wooden dining chair
Choose a wooden dining chair that highlights the natural grain like Lema’s ‘Wing’ design by Werner Aisslinger. Approx. £731

6.

Native & Co pot
Wood might not be the most likely material for pots and pans but the Japanese traditionally used these cast iron pots with wooden lids to make soups and stews over an ‘irori’ or firepit. £65

7.

Robson Rak‘s ‘Dale’ kitchen
Whilst a solid oak work surface is a classic choice, timber is also being used to clad entire kitchen units, contrasted with high performance worktops. The ‘Dale’ kitchen by Australian architects Robson Rak is a great example. 

Bathroom

1.

Reed Harris‘s ‘Dakota’ collection by Flaviker
As beautiful as it is, timber is not the most practical material for bathrooms because of the constant exposure to water and humidity. With the latest digital printing on porcelain you can replicate the look and feel with wood-effect tiles instead. The ‘Dakota’ collection by Flaviker is available in several shades. From £54.95 per sq/m

2.

Hay’s beechwood toothbrush
What beauty regime would be complete without a beechwood toothbrush by Hay. £9

3.

Duravit‘s Philippe Starck range
Solid oak was the natural choice when Philippe Starck designed his ‘Cape Cod’ inspired range for Duravit. The floor standing vanity unit is £2,989

4.

Urbanara‘s bath mat
Step out of the shower onto a stylish slatted, non-slipwood bamboo bath mat – it’s incredibly resistant to water so is up to the task. £29

5.

Drummond‘s Christopher Jenner collection
Christopher Jenner’s first collection for Drummonds includes The Rede chest which works equally well in the bathroom and bedroom. From £7,740
