Top Interior Trends with Wood Veneers

Text: Mr Akhilesh Chitlangia, Director and COO, Duroply Industries Limited

In these times of variety and choice, interior designers face a ‘designer’s block’ while designing their work. Due to this reason, there is a need for industrial materials to be versatile with a catalog of diverse options. Wood veneers are the first choice for interior designers as compared to solid wood due to their beauty, versatility, and cost savings in the market.

High-end luxury interior projects now embrace wood veneers as a design solution for furniture, decorative wall panelings, kitchen cabinets, flooring, and light fixtures!

“The less is more” aesthetic

Minimalism in interiors has significantly impacted consumer lifestyle, taste, and even the way one looks at the world now. It started with the rise of visual arts back in the mid-twentieth century when a lot of designers started breaking down antiquities and began to relish the beauty of simpler forms of nature derived from them. One must use functional aspects over form through subdued tones of dyed decorative veneers to achieve this minimal design trend.

Warm and earthy color tones

In this fast-paced era of modern technology and work stress, one must have a calm and relaxed space.  Warm and earthy color tones of taupes, browns, and caramels derived from fumed/smoked veneers help us evolve and nurture our frame of mind.

The contemporary aesthetic

Contemporary design trend is not just limited to minimalism or modernism but is a collection of multiple styles like postmodernism, deconstructivism, futurism, art deco, and so many more. By definition, contemporary refers to “living or occurring at present”. As the definition suggests, this design form absorbs so many other recurring styles around it “in the moment”, that it changes constantly with the flow of time. The ASH veneer collection amalgamates all the styles that contemporary decor leaves behind as a memory of design forms from the past, the present, and the future.

Monochromatic interiors

This style uses a variation of tones within the singular color palette that connects each corner of the space. Evoking vibrant feelings while striking a balance between minimal and maximal style, this appeal is universal. The ASH, Dyed & Fumed Veneer series brings browns, caramels, greys, and whites creating a bold and impressive color palette.
