Mixed Materials: White & Wood

by Melanie, June 3, 2013

White — particularly high gloss white — is all over the place these days.  We love it matched with natural wood finishes.  The mix is not necessarily new, but it’s clearly still hot because it was all over High Point in April.

Here are a few of our favorite examples:

White, high-gloss metal and wood picnic table from Artesia.

Dramatic campaign table from Bobo Intriguing Objects.  The wood base and trim has a rustic, unfinished feel and the super high gloss white top gives it modern sex appeal.  Love the oval edge on this one (above) but they have a traditional rectangular one too.

Calabasas Small Chest from Interlude Home.
The Atlantic night table from Mr. and Mrs. Howard for Sherrill Furniture — the inside is a curved mahogany veneer.

Nesting Tables from Cyan.

Wall Unit from Design Legacy.

Here the top is marble, not lacquered wood, but the effect is similar.  
Clean, cold stone and warm, soft wood.  
So go ahead and mix things up a little with your next purchase.  Glossy, sleek white plus earthy, rustic wood equals a perfect match. 
P.S.  Speaking of hot, for another way to mix your white and wood check out these ceramic stoves from Stack.  Who says a wood-burning stove has to look like you live in a little house on the prairie?
