Working With Fibers
A natural decor, working with wood
Historically, wood is used in decoration for the beauty and comfort it offers. With other materials such as steel becoming less popular, wood has made a return to household interior design with its varying shapes and interpretations. This completely natural material is invited in all parts of the house, but is usually in bathrooms and kitchens. Used mostly for floorings and finishes, wood has a strong heritage of household use. Even trees that were uprooted by the wind or fell in a rain storm, once shaped and polished, are perfect for creating unique tables, chairs, and shelves.
Natural fibers for a sober decoration
Natural fibers are specifically selected for their beauty and practicality. Sisla comes from the leaves of the agave cactus, from Mexico. This is probably the most sophisticated fiber, as it blends sweetness and consistency. Cior, another fiber offers a more rustic appearance and generally used to create a relaxing environment. Another fiber, sea grass, is a great fiber that is mainly used because of its resilience to humidity. Last off, the banana fiber, also known as abbaca, once dried and braided offers a material with various color tones.
Concrete, a material for a sober decoration
For years, concrete has mainly been reserved for construction uses, but today this material is used frequently in home decoration. It is used on walls, floors, and even appears on some furniture. Of course, these uses are purely decorative. Some designers favor concrete for its flexibility and malleability, but also for its reminiscent nature. Recently, technology has granted the ability to create light weight concrete, streamlining designs, and removing all of its weight in terms of decoration. That aside, concrete has a great ability to blend well with other materials such as wood textile and even steel.
