Trending on Remodelista: 5 Ways to Use Wood to Warm a Room

May 11, 2018

Wood is your friend—a welcoming, forgiving surface that instantly warms up a room. This week the Remodelista editors rekindled their romance with larch, walnut, and reclaimed barn siding (stay tuned for upcoming photos of Justine’s newly refinished floors). Here are five of our editors’ favorite ways to use wood to warm a room.

Home Spas

Above: The Badkast, an enclosed version of a bathtub, is handmade from a single larch tree from the Netherlands.
Studio Anna van der Lei’s bathtubs are inspired by Van der Lei’s fascination for bathing and recalling her Dutch and Finnish background and cultural bathing experiences. See more in The Home Spa Reimagined, from a Dutch-Finnish Designer.

Night Tables

The Mash Studios LAX Series Night Table in English walnut with a natural oil finish is \$400 at Horne.

Donald Judd–esque Daybeds

Original daybeds by artist Donald Judd can go for as much as $20,000 at auction; Julie admires some Judd-esque homages in 7 Favorites: The Enduring Appeal of the Donald Judd Daybed.

Alvar Aalto Stool

Nightstand, seating, side table—the question is what can&#8\2\17;t the Alvar Aalto 60 Stool with a black linoleum top do? (It is \$\275 at Design Within Reach.)

Reclaimed Wood Flooring

Meredith had a lot of questions about reclaimed wood flooring: “Is it really eco-friendly? Where exactly does the wood come from? Is reclaimed wood flooring a trend that’s already had its day?” For the answers, see this week’s Remodeling 101 post.
