Add Natural Wood Furniture to Your Philly Home
Natural wood is beautiful, distinctive, durable, and a constant reminder of the beauty of the great outdoors. It adds personality to modern home decor, which is most commonly designed using man-made materials.
Natural wood is beautiful, distinctive, durable and a constant reminder of the beauty of the great outdoors. It adds personality to modern home decor, which is most commonly designed using man-made materials. If you’re looking for a fresh and visually pleasing idea for your Philly home, try adding natural wood furniture to your rooms. Here are some ideas for incorporating the look of natural wood into your den, dining room, or bedroom.
If you feel that something is missing from your den, it might be a really nice wooden bookcase. Add a large, light-colored, natural wood bookcase to the room that reaches from the floor nearly to the ceiling. Decorate it with your favorite classic novels, dictionaries, and colorful hardcover books. You might also want to look for a small matching natural wood bench to place in front of it as an added visual treat (and to use to reach books on high shelves).
Classically Beautiful Dining Room Table
One of the most beautiful pieces you can invest in for your dining room is a large, natural wood table. Look for a hand-carved table that was clearly made by an artist who works in wood. Instead of going for a standard rectangular table, explore unusual shapes and cuts. Hunt for rustic tables with concave curves, notches, and lovely imperfections. The goal is to find a table that you might find in an old country cabin — it will contrast beautifully with modern decor, just try to keep the color theme consistent in your dining room.

You don’t have to purchase an entirely new bed in order to add the look of natural wood to your bedroom — just get a new headboard. One option is to purchase a pre-made wooden headboard or uniquely shaped large piece of wood that’s attached to legs for hook-up to your be. The other option is to nail freshly cut natural wood planks from a local hardware store to the wall behind your bed for a more “primitive” and simple look. If you choose option two, consider using two different colors of wood for a unique banded pattern.
