In this article we will talk about Raw decoration that uses wooden elements in the most natural state possible together with current furniture. A commitment to the beauty of imperfection, which makes each element unique.
Today we are going to review a trend that is taking strength in decoration. Raw decoration is based on using
wooden elements in the most natural state possible with current furniture. The wood must be in its pure state,
or appear as natural and imperfect as possible.

It is about using a modern decoration of pure and modern lines, together with raw or raw materials that stand out for their unique and timeless beauty. They create a spectacular contrast that makes these pieces the center of all eyes.

We return to look at nature to include it in our daily life. In fact the consumption of raw food or “raw food” is very topical. Just like home gardens, organic food, recycling … And this movement towards healthy, eco-friendly and natural also reaches the decoration. Now we discover the taste for this type of furniture or decorative elements “raw” or in a natural state.
The beauty of imperfection is claimed, which makes each element unique. Pieces of wood almost untreated, or that seem it, fresh from a forest to decorate our home. And so make us feel closer to nature. In this way raw decoration looks for elements with natural shapes, not symmetrical, and full of cracks and imperfections. Surely you’ve seen it in the magazine and fairs but maybe you still have not put the name. Let’s review some of its features.

The most used pieces are tables, shelves, coffee tables, side tables,
wooden beams and stools.

So we will choose two or three pieces of raw style for each room and we will mix them with modern style furniture. As they are very versatile pieces, when combining they can go well with many types of style: minimalist, Nordic, industrial, rustic … So we should not change our decoration completely if we do not integrate these central pieces in it.
