10 ways to use wood in your interior design

Since the origin of housing, wood is the most commonly used material for construction. The oldest wooden house which is still in usage dates back to the 11th century and its located in Kirkjubøargarður (King’s Farm). This is good proof that the wood is the most durable natural material that you can use for interior design.

As well, different types of wood (e.g. European walnut, American walnut, iroko, ash, oak, mahogany…) can be utilized in various ways and help you to create your perfect interior.
