In the mid-century modernist house, the use of natural materials is paramount. For inspiring a sense of the outdoors in the heart of the home, it was one of the most important weapons in the modernist architect’s arsenal. At the heart of all this was the wood panel.
Always polished, especially to bring out the texture of the grain, wood panelling sought to show the simple beauty that could be achieved through good materials, fashioned with care.
