WOOD be nice

Marianne Cotterill rounds up her edit of the best wooden pieces for your home

Wood is beautiful, full stop. It warms and softens a room. I won’t buy plastic accessories for my home unless they are vintage or recyclable. Wood is satisfying to touch and gets more lovely with age. No two pieces are the same and different woods look great mixed together; it is the preferred material of craftspeople.

Wood that is sustainable and produced to the highest ethical standards is available on the high street, too. Rockett St George’s sustainable king-size headboard comes in rich tones that work in both colourful and neutral spaces. The Ort table from Pinch Designs has a rustic charm and is available in beautiful, unprocessed and responsibly sourced timber; not cheap, but it’s a functional piece of art.
