Wood has not and will never take a back seat. We’ve not and will never stop loving wood. Yes, there are now look and feel-alike materials available, but wood is wood! And that’s precisely what Design Today is talking about in its August issue, off course along with other goodies.
In the section Design Stuff, there are two kinds of product selection, one of classic pieces ranging from home decorative , kitchenware, tableware to lighting. Then there is a collection of beautiful modern decoratives.
One thing just can’t stop catching our eyes are outdoor setting ideas and there are many in their section Design Stop.
In the featured home in the section Design at Home is a country cottage week-end home of Architect & Designer Kohelika Kohli in Aishbagh on Damdama lake in Gurgaon. The beautiful home overlooks Damdama lake on one side and the Aravallis on the other. The pieces seem all handpicked and a lot of natural light has been allowed throughout the home. Its amazingly done home with stark colors and beautiful paintings here and there. She says “I wanted a house that had clean geometric lines, that was functional and contemporary, yet rooted in my own culture and traditions….”
Another very interesting home featured is in Sainik farms sculpted by Delhi-based DCA Architects. Every corner has point of interest with quirky materials, textures, treatment in wall hangings, lighting, book units or even walls for that matter. Each and every room has something to get inspired from.
In the section Design Focus, the magazine feature a sustainable dwelling with interiors featuring pinewood panels in a raw finish in North Holland. The use of natural pinewood is throughout the space. Glass facades bring in plenty of natural light.
A very useful article with all the information you would ever need if you are considering wood for your home or furniture is in the section Design Focus. From trends, types, to how to do a quality analysis, etc, you have every info in one place.
Another interesting story among others is a residence in North California done by San Francisco based architects Turnbull Griffin Haesloop.
