A Modern Apartment Celebrates the Look of Natural Wood

Wood is one of the most basic materials and can be used in an endless number of ways. But apart from wood floors, many modern designs tend to shy away from the use of too much natural wood. In this apartment, the design team at PartiDesign fully embrace natural grain and beautiful wood finish on virtually every surface. The result is an apartment that’s entirely modern but embraces the natural elements.

The wood is sanded and sealed, but not painted over, which lets its natural beauty shine through.

The natural grain in the ceiling and dining table really makes the whole apartment feel bigger and even more open than it is.
