Wood has long been an important material in structural architecture and also provides a timeless appeal to interior design.
There are 4 common styles of interior design:
• Industrial- this is characterized by a mature, rugged vintage appearance.
• Farmhouse- this style is best described as a modern rustic.
• Urban modern- a modern design that combines minimalism and edgy chic.
• Mid-century modern- classic, clean look with a mix of organic and geometric shapes, focusing mostly on functionality.
